I feel like a dud admitting it, but I have satellite tv. If I was living with a roommate or was married, I don't think I would have it, but being alone here, it's worth it. I get several English stations and I love it. I get 2 news stations, the Discovery channel and Animal Planet, BBC entertainment, and a few others that play a lot of English programs. After being at work all week and feeling like I don't understand half of what is going on, it's great to come home and watch the news and understand everything!
