Cord Cutters News Is Hitting the Road to Promote Cord Cutting

CCNewsLogo_RGBCord cutting has one big drawback compared to cable TV. Cable TV spends millions of dollars on advertising and no one is spending millions advertising cord cutting. Starting this year we plan to change that, and we need your help.

Luke from Cord Cutters News, LLC, will be traveling to different libraries to talk all about cord cutting. We will be presenting classes on cord cutting starting April 11 at the Grand Rapids, Michigan, Downtown Library and continuing to at least 10 other libraries across Michigan.

Our goal is to reach out to the general public and help them learn that you can cancel cable TV and still watch your content. With a short presentation followed by questions and answers, our goal is to march across America from coast to coast and border to board introducing people to cord cutting and telling people how they can do it and still get their favorite shows, sports, and movies.

We need your help…

You can help us promote cord cutting!

1st We need success stories. Did cord cutting help you save money? Has it improved your TV viewing experience? Does it save you time? Please leave us a comment on this post with your success stories that we can use in our presentation. You can also post your stories over on Reddit by clicking HERE.

2nd Ask your local library to have CCN come visit and talk about cord cutting. The toughest part of getting these classes started is initiating the conversation at each library. Use this post as an example of what the class will be like: http://cordcuttersnews.com/cord-cutting-101-a-beginners-guide-to-cord-cutting/

Have the libraries contact us at [email protected] if they would like to know more.

3rd Traveling across America is not cheap. A donation would go a long way to helping us print handouts and travel across the country. (Sorry we are a LLC, so no tax detections from the donations.) You can donate to our PayPal account by clicking HERE.

With your help we will take cord cutting around the United States and let everyone know how amazing cord cutting is.

    hi! i would recommend you visit college towns. my daughter attends northern illinois university, and they want to cut cable because it’s so expensive even divided amongst the roommates. we cut the cord almost a year ago, and we are saving around $90 a month. i could save more, but i do have sling, hulu, netflix, cbs all access, hbo, and amazon. i like to watch tv. i will admit that when we visited her, i grabbed her cable remote and hit those channels i cannot stream, i.e. msnbc, tlc, tvland, bravo, and usa 😉 if i could get those five channels, life would be almost perfect… lol! i was worried about missing the super bowl, but thank you cbs sports for streaming on your roku channel!

    i think about going back to cable. we got a two year offer that was really a great price, but we tossed it! i miss my pause button, the dvr, and on demand, but i have a new routine for watching tv. i do have to avoid spoilers sometimes when i have to wait until the next day to watch something on hulu. it was hard to wait a couple of days to watch “grease live” when the rest of the world seemed to be watching, but it was still just as good two days later.

    i doubt we will go back to cable. we have two rokus and a wii for streaming on our three televisions. when the daughters were home from college at christmas, we often had all three tvs streaming three different apps without any problems. as long as our internet provider doesn’t hit us up for data usuage, we will stick with streaming for now.

    finally, we have looked into getting an antenna, but we live in a rural town in between two television markets (one is about 50 miles away and the other about 75 miles away), so it would take a powerful and expensive antenna. it’s something we will consider purchasing later in the year. we opted for the roku 3 at christmas!

    keep up your good work… you guys are my go-to for all things cord cutting!

    I think the greatest example of how happy I am with cord-cutting came last week. My wife and I stayed two nights in a hotel which had a full cable package. The first thing I did when I got in the room was pull the tv unit out and unplug the cable box to make room for my fire tv stick. I plugged in, logged on to the hotel wifi and immediately started up with our shows on Netflix. I thought about it later that I had the ability to watch any channel I wanted, but I’m so much happier watching things on my schedule.

    In 2012, I had two comcast accounts, one for primary residence and another one for a secondary home. Since most of my time was spent at the primary residence, I started experimenting with the existing antennas at the secondary home and was impressed with the number of channels I could get with 50+ year old antennas, Eventually I cancelled that cable account and saved almost $500 per year. I had someone come and install a new antenna on the roof and received over 40 channels including some from surrounding states. Early last year I cancelled the cable at my primary home and installed a mohu sky in the attic space and used existing coax. Over 50 channels of free channels. I added a chromecast, hulu plus and netflix, Reduced the 95.00 cable bill to 18.00 a month and have more stuff than I have time to watch. Also much better picture quality and more interesting shows and movies than I had before. Saving about 900.00 per year. Wouldnt go back to cable for anything.
