Cord cutting is on the rise as more and more people ditch cable to become cord cutters. Almost weekly a new service or device comes out to reach cord cutters.
So what is driving people to become cord cutters? DigitalSmiths, a TiVo-owned research company, took a look at the top reasons people are ditching traditional pay TV such as cable.
Here are the top 5 reasons people cancel cable TV:
#2 It’s cheaper
#3 No commercials or ads
#4 Ability to watch what they want and binge watch
#5 Better selection
Many are likely surprised to see convenience as a more popular option that the price point; however, there is a lot to be said about the ability to have your content when and where you want it. Just this week I took a trip to see family and brought a Roku along. After plugging the Roku Stick into the TV it was like I was right at home. All of my shows on Movies on Amazon and all my Sling TV channels are right there with me.
I do think many will agree the ability to avoid commercials is a major selling point to being a cord cutter.
So does the top 5 reasons to cancel cable TV line up with your reasons? What made you decide to be a cord cutter? Please post your reasons in the comments below.
