Pulled the trigger on going back to cable

I've been a tv subscriber again for about two weeks.  It hasn't change my viewing habits much at all.  I refuse to watch live television, unless there is 'news' involved.  Thanks to Comcast On Demand I have been able to catch up with a few shows that I liked but Hulu only carried the most recent five episodes of.  Plus, I can now DVR shows that were only available for $ on Amazon. I am also not allowing myself to spend money on a la cart offerings online any longer.  I also dropped Netflix, since I was only watching one or two things at most per month.  Hulu Plus will probably go as well, though I'm still a bit intrigued by some of their original programming.  Additionally, I like having the clips related to m shows accessible in one place (way better than you tube).  If I want to just watch a particular movie, I am putting it on my wish list.

Ultimately, I am probably shelling out more per month, but it is a predictable amount.  Plus, for the next couple of months I'll have access to HBO and Showtime on demand and broadcast programming.  Hopefully, I can catch up with Game of a Thrones, True Blood, and Dexter before the trial period is up.
