Why do we pay so much to watch television etc.?
Today’s post is by Troy Lowe; Vice President of Development at SafeSourcing.
It’s hard to believe that the average cost of watching cable television is around $100 per month. Even though there are hundreds of channels to choose from, the average person only watches about 10 percent of them. If you want to lower your monthly costs, there are a ways to accomplish this. Try contacting your local cable companies and see what packages they have to offer. There may be a package that contains the channels that you currently watch for a lower cost. Some companies may work with you and lower your monthly cost so that they do not lose your business. Another option is to cut the cord and remove cable completely. This option is not as hard as hard as you may think and can be done at a fairly low cost. Your local channels are broadcasted in HD and can be received for free using an Antenna and there are streaming apps and sites available for streaming popular cable channels. Below are some things to consider if you want to cut the cord.
- Choose a streaming service such as Amazon, Netflix, and Sling TV
- Choose a streaming device like Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Google Chromecast and Roku
- Choose an Antenna for receiving local channels
- Choose a DVR for recording local channels
