    Switched from Comcast to PS Vue because of the rising prices. Couldn’t keep paying $20 to 30 more every year or two. Not to mention, out of the hundreds of channels they have, I only watched about 10-15. Saved a lot switching and have been much happier ever since.

    I am very happy with DTVNow. I only need them to get ATT Sports Net so I can watch the Astros.

    I was just tired of the 2-year commitment needed to get a decent price. Also, I hated all the extra fees, $5 for this, $10 for that. Dropped cable TV almost 3 months ago and enjoy the flexibility of OTT streaming services. It’s been an enjoyable summer hobby trying out different services.

    Barcthespark July 15, 2017 at 4:49 pm #

    My breaking point with DIRECTV was the fact that every single year the price would go up and every single time I would drop either equipment or channels to offset the price increase. Once I reached the bottom of my plan/equipment without losing must have channels and could no longer offset the price increase I was out of there.

    When we moved here from up north, I chose Charter with Internet and all Premium channels. Telephone wasn’t available at the time. Promotion price was low, but after a year prices climbed dramatically. i dropped all premium channels save Showtime; then cable started creeping towards $180/month. That was it; January 2015 I cancelled cable, bought router/modem, ClearStream 2V antenna, two Roku 2 plus Roku stick. Also got Hulu, Netflix , Sling TV, etc. Went from $180 to $110/month.

    I just started looking into cord cutting recently, because I found out Spectrum is going to jack up my price again soon, this time an extra $30 per month. I just can’t afford it. So now I’m almost ready. I just need to save up for an antenna and a magic jack for the phone part. And then I’ll be ready.

    There is no set price. Depending on what day you call or chat online and whom you get and how hard you persist or just get lucky on the first get go, the price and packages you can get will always vary. This applies to all services and is so lame.

    I’m not (yet) a cord cutter as I’m not sure just how these (boxes) work without a “cord”. I see a number of them but nothing really substantial. This is, more than likely because most, if not all, of you understand the ways and means.

    Please direct me to some real place that’s giving full information and not just a shill trying to get me to buy something, I don’t mean this site by he way.
    Everything on this site is directed to those that already know how “cord cutting” works. Thanks.

      Ohh… It’s not going to be easy for you if you have a slow Internet connection and bad antenna reception. We’d be better able to help you if we knew how slow it is though. Typically, a good rule of thumb is to have at least 5Mbps per member of the household.

      I honestly believe that some of the best beginner resources are from companies that have relevant products (or services). (I happen to use them myself.) You just have to keep in mind that there are alternatives and so don’t want to buy from them before you explore some more.

      When you have questions/doubts about anything, ask questions. Plenty of people have tried cutting the cord without doing enough research first and have been rather unpleasantly surprised by some issue or other.

        Did see the name Pluto come up and did a search.
        I read what I could find and decided to that the plunge.
        Gee, for a “free” program / app it was surprisingly decent for what it offered and it worked fairly well. Too bad they can’t get locals, but are a nice adjunct to my lowest cost Dish that gives me HD locals and others. Heck it even has an Anime channel.
        Hopefully it will get more stuff.
        Oh yeah, lots of commercials, so what else is new.

          You weren’t exaggerating, that _is_ slow. That’s so slow you have to keep in mind what devices on your home network might be running updates while idle and browsing the Web while watching videos isn’t much of an option (unless you limit your videos to so called “standard definition” — “old standard” is a better name now).

          If you’re looking for local news, try seeing if any of your local stations have joined NewsOn or have their own Roku channel or FireTV app. Otherwise, you’ll have to pay to get access to that.

          I recommend you check out what DVDs your local public libraries have; they’re often great for free DVD “rentals”. And it may be worth watching deal sites for free Redbox rental codes, if there’s any convenient locations near you. Also you might want to consider using Netflix’s DVD-by-mail rental service to access more content without streaming it. Renting Blu-ray discs probably still costs extra though (and you might not have a Blu-ray player).

    I was trying to cut the cord back in 2012. I was watching more and more and more content online. The only reason that I had DirecTV was because of my dear old dad living with me. In his 90s, he could figure out the remote for the DVR tuner, but just barely. When he died in 2014, I finished out the month and went to basic until the contract ran out. At one time, we were paying $170/month for sat tv. I like things the way they are, with Over The Air Broadcast TV for FREE and watching stuff online. YAY!!

    The last 2 apartments I rented did not have cable hookups in the bedrooms, only in the living room. Easiest way to get TV in all the bedrooms was cutting the cord. If I do move into an apartment with cable hookups in other rooms, I’ll still use my PSVue, cheaper and better than cable for sure!

    I just can’t justify paying what I do for cable. I feel like it is a total rip off for what I receive, and I could be spending my money on better things! So many of my friends and family members are cutting the cord, which inspired me to do the same!

    I’ve never had satellite or cable tv – so technically I’m not a cord cutter I guess – but once we got dsl (just enough to watch things) we we able to access Amazon and Google Play, etc so for us it’s more not less.

    I love the savings and better quality that I receive from cord cutting. I have plenty of my favorite content to watch an enjoy the flexibility of watching on any device. I love being cable free and will never go back! I am kinda bummed about PSV increasing their prices. I just hope that it isn’t a trend to put my bill back where it was.

    Although cable is expensive, cord cutting would result in a loss of content and would require access to multiple streaming services and a reliable internet connection.

      I would challenge you to give it a try. I think you will find with services like Sling, PS Vue, and DIRECTV NOW you will get all the content cable has to offer cheaper. Add it services like Netflix and Hulu to get even more content than what cable could ever offer.

      Also internet is really not a issue.

    After Charter finished off its acquisition of TWC, the quality of the TV service went down the toilet. My DVR didn’t record about half of the shows it should have. Many other people in the are also began having similar issues. They tried to say that it was due to equipment, but when all devices throughout the house and the neighborhood have the same issue, I tend to call BS on that. I got tired of it and canceled TV service (which was much more expensive under “Spectrum”) and switched to VUE.

    I hated paying for channels I didn’t want just to get the ones I did want. And then flipping through 100+ channels to find there was never anything good on! And then the cable box would reboot in the middle of me watching a show, or lose my recordings. The box would go out in bad weather, like it thought it was satellite or something! Ridiculous! One box shorted out and killed my tv. I got reimbursement for it, but it was a ridiculous hassle. That’s all over now! Saving $90 a month and I get most everything over the air. What I don’t get from my antenna, I find in apps. I’m happy now. But I want a TiVo Romeo!

    We have cut the cord because the price just keep rising, the price rose within 2 months of getting our bundle package, then again a few more times, then when Spectrum bought out TWC our price raised another 25 dollars and when I called to inquire about it, the lady said there was nothing cheaper that in fact in two months my price would jump another $100 dollars when the contract run out..

That being said, I live in a place now where I can pretty much pick up any station I want, unless I wanted to upgrade to their new Mohu Leaf Glide, which I am considering but I am NOT holding my breath that I’ll be winning one of the 10 they’re giving away.

    Cutting the cord was really the best option. I don’t care about the majority of cable channels. If you really want to see something that is not OTA, you can temporarily subscribe to the service that offers it and binge watch, or simple buy it outright from Google or Amazon.
