The Mouse that Roared

I’ve always suspected that people who don’t own a television are holding out just so they could brag about not owning a television. “Seinfeld? Never heard of it.” Jerk. Well there’s a new group out there: People who don’t own a cable box, but still watch lots of TV. These folks loooove to tell you how much money they’re saving and make you feel like a sucker for handing over your hard-earned cash to Time Warner every month. Problem is, they’re kind of right (unless you enjoy sports, breaking news, awards ceremonies or just mindlessly flipping channels.) So, my story in the Home section of today’s NYTimes: Can a Mouse Cut the Cable? (Also, a sidebar on how to get started.)
