I love tv and hate commercials. Two years ago we got Apple Tv so I could connect to Boxee and watch Internet Tv. Jim and I brought home our first tv and canceled Comcast(1) Cable. For about six months, we were able to watch almost all programs, online with limited or no commercials. All we had to do was down load Boxee and install it in the Apple Tv and have the patience to watch our program after they aired. It was good, but Apple didn't like it, and configured software download thingy to block Boxee.
However, with an HD antenna and Apple Tv, Jim and I didn't miss cable. Most of the programs we watched were on network tv and now there are more network channels to watch. In Chicago we have WCIU. They show all the old Twilight Zone episodes and the like. Plus Kora and Max did a commercial for WCIU. (as much as I hate commercials) We were never at a loss for programing.
