What are some alternatives to cable or satellite TV that you use? (That still allows you to watch what you enjoy.)

I still enjoy watching TV now and then, including old movies and a few current TV shows. I think I'm ready to pull the plug on satellite TV. I see advertisement after advertisement on the net about this service or that service. What are your experiences with alternatives to the crazy prices, and endless channels that are worthless but always seem to be part of those “package deals?” Have you been happy with these alternatives? Of the 156 channels we currently get, we watch maybe 7 or 8 channels. We already have Netflix. I'd just like to hear what has worked for you.
