This thread is very timely because my mother and I were just discussing this today. For me, I'd rather give up the TV because I can always watch any favorite shows on my laptop or iPhone but since she is 82 and not computer/smartphone/internet savvy she said she would rather give up the internet.

I would rather give up TV programming of any kind and keep the internet.
