we have and use a DVR to record our shows. The joy of it is we can speed thru commercials. We also have roku, so we have access to netflix, hulu, etc.
the only news we watch is morning local Mon- Fri to get local info, sports and weather; we only watch FOX news. We also get our news over the internet from various sources. And, we have SIRIUS radio.
And, if the power goes out/gas is unavailable, we have books, games, puzzles to keep us occupied, along with house/yard work & chores, and even hobbies.
We don’t want/need any channel, even FOX, telling us how/what to think. We’re too stubborn, old and independent for that to happen! :)
