Joining the Cord Cutters Club

September 25th, 2019

It has been almost two years since I joined the ranks of the “cord cutters”.

It has been almost two years since I joined the ranks of the “cord cutters”. I was a bit skeptical when my husband suggested we cancel our cable subscription. My initial concerns were how will I be able to DVR and what about the premium channels? There is a website that devoted to cord cutting options and product ratings.

We were already subscribers of Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime as side entertainment options, for a number of years, while still remaining cable dependent. We were also already using three of the four top-selling streaming devices which are Roku, Chromecast, Fire TV, and Apple TV. I realized we were already there, but just hadn’t cut the cord. Antennas were the only purchase that was necessary to make the transition.

At first, it took some time getting used to where to locate different shows, but it was mostly a pain free transition. The growth in streaming content and providers has made it possible to view most television shows and movies, seamlessly. If there is a series on a premium channel that you’re interested in watching, you can purchase a la carte through Amazon Prime instead of the traditional bundling of channels that most cable companies require. There are several great DVR options for antennas from Tablo, Channel Master, and TiVo.

In addition to the previously mentioned streaming providers, there are multiple options including Sling TV which has every variation of ESPN you can name, YouTube TV, and broadcasters such as CBS All Access, HBO Now. Disney Plus and Apple TV Plus will be available in late 2019. HBO Max and NBC Universal’s Peacock are set to launch in 2020.

Streaming subscription plans have reasonable and varying price ranges and some offer ad-free viewing at a higher price option. Prices range from $4.99 to $15.99 per month which is a huge savings compared to cable prices starting at $35.00 to $50.00 per month for basic package, increasing to around $100.00 once your introductory offer expires.

The market trend of cord cutters has seen viewers cutting back or dropping their television subscriptions in favor of using a mixture of sources, such as terrestrial television and internet streaming services, as an alternative. Whatever your preference, there is a low cost option available. Try them out for free and save your money.

    I learned more new stuff on this weight-loss issue. A single issue is that good nutrition is vital while dieting. An enormous reduction in fast foods, sugary meals, fried foods, sugary foods, beef, and white colored flour products might be necessary. Possessing wastes parasites, and toxic compounds may prevent goals for shedding fat. While specified drugs briefly solve the challenge, the terrible side effects will not be worth it, they usually never give more than a temporary solution. This is a known incontrovertible fact that 95 of fad diet plans fail. Thank you for sharing your thinking on this blog.
