It's very nearly possible to obtain all your programming via the Internet, especially if you don't mind watching some programs after they've been broadcast on cable and satellite TV. The biggest hangup at the moment is sports coverage.
I'm about to dump cable completely and use a combination of Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon for our TV watching. I may go back to enjoying sports on radio. The announcers are better anyway. They have to talk about what's going on in the game instead of filling the airwaves with other crap.
Cable and satellite providers SHOULD be under heavy competitive pressure to improve their offerings due to increased use of Internet sources by informed consumers. Unfortunately, as has been pointed out above, our nation seems to be mostly populated with Kardashian-watchers and other mindless morons, so the providers just keep raking in the dough.
