there are some games televised on the rabbit ears

yah it took some adjusting

for football the bars are great.

basketball - well that's a problem.

baseball is boring so definitely not watching until playoffs

I use a different site but you the quality on all of them isnt the best.

A lot of networks are starting to play live sports for free on their sites. In HD with less commercials and even has cool features like instant replay and choosing different cameras. My favorite in football is the cheer leader camera

We just got to sit and wait until all networks decide to make the switch.

When I sit at a pub for a hockey game my bill is upwards of $100 by the end of the night and I find I watch very little hockey usually talking to people
Can't beat a PVR for sports and pausing the game when u have to take a leak.
Cable shows? Meh could easily do without but sports would be hard

My Ride: A car.
i watch it all the time, but I can't stand commercials. I haven't watched network TV in years. If I think I'm going to like a show, after checking reviews I'll get the boxsets so I can avoid commercials.
Discovery Channels and History are the main ones when I'm not watching hockey (LA KINGS!!!!) I dropped the premium channels other than HBO and Showtime.
I also watch or listen (when working) to a shitload of movies on BR/DVD.

IDGAF about watching on my phone or laptop.

I first clicked the "YouTube Movies" link randomly, which lead to a sub-reddit that I did not know existed.

http://www.reddit.com/r/fullmoviesonyoutube

which I found a similar Vimeo link form the sidebar.

http://www.reddit.com/r/fullmoviesonvimeo

I try and stay away from torrenting movies and would rather stream so I found the link useful for what I'm usually looking for
