    We still have cable. We have a very modest package. I did, however, just turn in our cable boxes and remotes to save some cash on our monthly bill. It was connected on a secondary TV that no one was watching. It’s interesting to see my three teenagers and their viewing habits. They rarely watch content on a TV, but often on some other type of device. Cable will die a slow death as our children get older, and shift to what it’s all about – high-speed data.

      “Cable will die a slow death…” – I think so too, Brian. The kids and I were just talking last night about how much technology has changed since you and I were kids. I still remember the first family in our major metropolitan city to get cable. It was a big feature on the evening news. 🙂

    My wife and I aren’t interested in sports, so we just use Hulu, Netflix, & Amazon Prime. I also have CBS All Access, but that is just for the new Star Trek.

      We aren’t big sports fans either, so that probably makes a difference. We’ve been very happy with Netflix, but I could see us adding Prime Video one day. Thanks for the comment, Joe!

    I haven’t had cable since I graduated from high school in 2004 and moved away from home. It was a treat to watch when I used to travel for work and stay in a hotel, but my wife and I are too cheap to pay for cable since we only like to watch two shows that air on local channels. We stream those online after the children go to sleep. If there’s something we want to watch on cable, we either pay to stream that single episode or we have a “watch party” at a friend’s house.

    I watch only business channels and Fox News. How can I cut the cord?

      You can read the news online for free and see quite a few video clips on their websites too. Don’t forget, you can also use antennas to get local news channels.

    Thanks for all the info! You are so right! Right now is a great time to find alternatives to cable or satellite! There are many great offers out there! Thanks for sharing!

    This sounds great, but there are none that I have seen that give the shows we watch: Fox News, movie channel, SCI, cooking, and a few more.

      I understand. Unfortunately, it’s sometimes hard to find a cheap way to get all of the ones you want. To get it cheap, you might have to make sacrifices.
