One Year Without Cable

Last March I decided to "cut the cable" and went back to having only antenna TV service for the first time since 2004.  Are there things that I have missed?  Sure.  I liked watching Pardon the Interruption on ESPN, and I liked watching English Premier League soccer matches and the occasional Cardinals baseball game.  I can't do that anymore.  However, I was paying about $102 per month for that privilege.  When I cancelled my cable subscription I picked up some sports packages that I can watch online, like NHL Center Ice and the package, as well as the MLS Live package.  Put all of those together and that costs around $330 per year.  So, I actually have more sports to watch and am saving around $800 per year.  All told, I'm content with my decision.
