cable cutting

Can I cut the cable?

I would like to get rid of cable and hear abt all kinds of providers out there over the internet. I would like your option/direction and am happy to schedule an appt if that is best.

Yes there are many choices. More and more people are cutting the cable these days. I cut off my satellite plan 10 years ago and have ben living within the App ecosystem for years now. So there are several different paths depending on what you are interested In.

First you want to look at the financial equiviance. How much you're paying for tv now vs. what you will convert to. Say your tv package is around $150 not including internet access. Consider that access to individual apps is usually close to $10 a month. Each app (or company) specializes in it's own content for the most part. In other words, CBS All Access has its own shows, Netflix has it's own, Disney+ has it's on and so forth. For live TV I suggest just buying a digital antenna (about $30 or less). This gives you access to all the live TV channels you grew up with like NBC, CBS, ABC, Fox, etc…. You could also buy a package sort of plan that includes many of these channels along with ESPN, food channels, etc…. Here are two of the most popular:

Disney+, Hulu,ESPN

Youtube TV

It all comes down to what you want to watch. I personally don't care about sports so I don't have a plan like the links above. I just have several apps a-la-cart. Keep in mind a few things:

1. Every company is taking back possession of its own content. In other words, ABC is pulling its old shows from Netflix, CBS is pulling it's shows from Amazon Prime Video, etc…
2. Disney owns just about everything including Fox and ESPN so they are a monopoly in content. (Side note: they generated about 80% of the revenue at the box office this year alone)
3. ATT owns everything else including HBO and Warner Bros so they are coming out with their own service soon called HBOmax.

It's all confusing.

Hope this helps a little.
