We dropped Cable TV in September. Bought some bunny ears for $10, and signed up for Netflix. Turned out our Samsung Blue Ray player had a built in Netflix interface, so we watch it in HD-1080p.
We love it. There's so much content on Netflix. I've finally got a chance to watch the Firefly series. Just 5 more Episodes to go. My wife is into season 2 of Psych, and got a DVD of some Mythology movie that came out recently (not Clash of the Titans, some other crap). My kids have Thomas, Backyardigans, and few other shows queued up, and watch it daily. We watched a nature show about storms the other day. We watched "Planet 51" over the weekend (horrible movie btw, don't bother).
It's slow to start up a streaming video. Twice we haven't gotten audio. I can tell there's slowness using the Internet when we are watching something (not bad, just slow). Once there was a problem with one of the videos (it kept pixelating, restarting the video cleared it up). None of this has been a major problem to us.
That's it though. There's a tremendous amount of up-side compared to down-side. I recommend it.
