Since I live alone so I don't need to consider sighted viewers, I would set the video quality on the streaming player to the lowest setting it allows and probably be just fine with the internet i already have. And for streams I figure two or three carefully chosen ones would provide me with all the TV entertainment I need and only cost me $30 or so each month.

And if you can get decent high-speed internet service so you can stream, that's a perfectly reasonable thing to do.
I still have Comcast basic cable (and I do mean basic, and they don't even make new customers aware the option exists) that costs me $40 per month but there's no way I want the next step up, which contains tons of crap I'd never watch, for over $100 per month.
My internet service (all of it) is now handled through the mobile hotspot feature of the two 5G smartphones in the household.  We stream a ton from Amazon Prime Video and Netflix, and occasionally from the various commercial networks if there's something we missed that we want to see.  I have considered cutting the cable cord and with that savings, if I wanted to burn all of it monthly, I could subscribe to between 6 and 8 streaming services, including PBS Passport, and never look back.
Once you start streaming it's amazing how fast it becomes painful to have to deal with commercials.  I don't miss them one bit!
