Hi Brian,

You are right. I've basically switched to Youtube. I watch science, skeptic and atheist channels mostly. Some better than others. But I get to set my own viewing schedule and to pick what I like to watch. I would suggest that this is probably the future of television anyway.

Hi there Thrift,

I've been thinking of cutting off DSTV myself and spending the money on a bigger Internet connection. The only thing I will probably miss is live sport.

Quite possibly yes. I find that even YouTube's light entertainment, in the form of weird or funny home movies, tends to be far funnier than anything on TV.

YouTube is also where I get most of my music nowadays.

Hi Grumpy, welcome to the forum! I chucked the TV out of my home some 16 years ago after seeing the rubbish my kids were watching whilst I'm not around. They effectively grew up without the sludge and they grew up all the better for it. Both are readers and question things far more than their peers. Lose the TV, you will likely find you won't miss it.
