1. Don't underestimate how much you passively watch Television: Sometimes I think we take for granted that cable companies give us the flexibility to just turn on the TV and watch something... anything. When I get off work or am just browsing the web there isn't a specific show that I want to watch. All video streaming solutions have one thing is common. You have to actively choose what you want to watch. Which is cool sometimes, but other times I just want ambient noise.
2. Your cable company bundle is still cheaper: Not to be a jerk, but the last time I checked Netflix, AppleTV, Amazon Prime, and Hulu all need a very hardy internet connection to stream high quality video. Honestly, when was the last time you checked the cost of an internet only plan. A decent connection will cost you at least $35 (Depending on where you live) and after you add HBO NOW and Netflix how much are you really saying. If you don't mind "renegotiating" every year this might be the strategy for you.
3. You are still paying for Shit you don't watch: All streaming services are bundling us. I know I watch less than 1% of what Netflix has to offer. Choose wisely no Walking Dead on Sony's Playstation Vue. What are you going to do when your lady wants to watch a Sex and The City marathon, or some mind numbing Housewives show on Bravo. Are you going to say, "No honey, you have to watch whats's available on our package. I didn't pick the right one". I guarantee you my friend her show will always be on that "other" streaming service. -Good luck with that Bro!
Is cutting the cord cost effective for you or are you like me and paying more for internet and modem without tv than most pay in a bundle. Comment below, let me know what you think!
