"Television is a medium because anything well done is rare." - Fred Allen
It's official. After almost a lifetime of cable and satellite TV subscriptions, we are now cord cutters.
I'm old enough to remember having one TV in our house. A 13" black-and-white set. It got channels 2 through 13. To be more precise, it got 7 channels, all of which were between channels 2 and 13 (inclusive).
I think I was in 4th grade when we finally got cable TV (and a color TV set at some point before). I then lived most of my life with cable. At that point, cable was pretty much "the norm".
