Should I Cut Cable?

Everyone around me seems to have made the decision to cut their cable (except for their high-speed, unlimited internet of course). As we continue to work our way into 2019, is there really any reason NOT to cut cable?

If you are a tech-savvy person then cutting the cord totally makes sense. You are aware of all the online alternatives including Hulu, Netflix, YouTube TV, Amazon Prime Video, etc. You can even snag a 30-day free trial for Amazon Prime by clicking or tapping here. There are many different services out there that can replace and even outdo the content that you could barely squeeze out of your cable TV subscription. Even with a few online services, the cost is still usually cheaper than your hefty cable bill.

For local channels that you might miss out on when relying on online streaming services, you can buy a cheap HD TV antenna on Amazon ($27) or pick one up at a retail store near you.

When I decided to cut the cord and cut cable, I ordered an Amazon Fire TV Stick off of Amazon ($40). For the price, the Fire Stick is more than worth it for what it has to offer. It has a remote than can be controlled with your voice- which is amazing in itself, using Amazon’s Alexa technology. You can easily download the apps for Hulu, Netflix, etc. I have found that Amazon Prime is one of the best values for your money. You get access to Kindle eBooks, free 2-day shipping, Prime Video, and much more. It’s only $12.99 per month and even cheaper if you choose an annual subscription. Here’s the link again for the free 30-day trial I mentioned above.

Cutting cable is a wise move in my opinion. It forces the cable companies to rethink how they are running their business. When all of your users are dropping your service- you know that you need to make a change. Opting-in to online streaming services pushes you and everyone else into the future of entertainment.

Cable TV may seem like the easiest option but it’s definitely not worth it for the prices that are typically offered. Channels are crammed full of ads and you barely have any choice in what you get to watch. You have to conform to what the channel guide tells you.

Grab yourself a Fire TV Stick and a Digital Antenna. Cut out your cable TV subscription. It is well worth the switch as long as you are willing to make the change. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment below and I will be sure to get back with you. Thanks!
