I stopped watching TV and buying DVDs years ago; there are tons of great alternatives if you want to "watch something". When I have my meals I watch Starcraft II replays, obviously not something everyone would be interested in but it's entertaining to me and it's my contribution to keeping my money out of the hands of the people in charge of anti-American propaganda you see in "American" media. Of course my ISP provides both cable and television services so I have to download the video as they intentionally disrupt my streams, not difficult to overcome.
I highly encourage others find content online that they think they would enjoy as it will keep their money in their pockets and out of the bank accounts of Hollywood. There's tons of legitimate content out there if you just take the time to look, you'll save money and keep from giving it to those...people, all simultaneously.
