PBS – Public Broadcasting System. The greatest television; at no cost. That’s right! You can disconnect the cable box and alleviate yourself of one extra bill and still get great reception on your PBS channel, ABC, NBC, CBS, and FOX.
But, it’s not the savings of your pocketbook I wanted to highlight today. It’s PBS. You really don’t need anything else for television. There is so much on this station that will enlighten, entertain and educate you. Such a broad variety of informational programming…
Cooking shows, gardening, home improvement, nature, science, news, and oh, the kids shows…those wonderful kid shows! Not to mention that there are no commercials to bombard your children or to take away from your enjoyment.
Don’t forget that there are so many ways to view the shows that you enjoy from HBO or AMC, etc. You can stream them for free, get them from Netflix, borrow them from your local library at no charge, etc.
I believe that in any given week, you can check out the line-up on your PBS channels and DVR plenty of exciting shows to fill up the amount of time you normally spend watching television. And who knows, you might get a bit more intelligent watching them!
