Have You Cut The Cord on your Cable TV?

As the price of cable TV seems to keep going up, more people are cutting the cord all together.

Between streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, rental services like RedBox and Amazon Instant Video, it almost feels pointless to spend $100+ on cable service each month.

But I’m still a slave to my instant gratification.

Especially in this business, I feel like it’s important to keep up to date with what’s going on in entertainment. Sure, I could wait a day and find out who got kicked off of American Idol by watching the next day online. But in the meantime, what would I tell you on the radio?

I’m also a big fan of a lot of premium channel shows. I really enjoy Nurse Jackie on Showtime, Game of Thrones on HBO, and a number of the other original series that are only available to customers.

Another thing to take into consideration – if you’re going to cancel your cable TV service and watch shows after they first run, you do still need internet access which, most likely, you’ll have to get from a cable company anyway.

And of course most cable companies will charge you more when you only subscribe to a single, stand alone service in order to get you to “bundle” and subscribe to multiple services.

It seems like, with something like this, if you want to keep access to TV entertainment, you’re going to have to pay either way. In that case though, you might as well make the best of it and try to negotiate the best price possible. Hey, it never hurts to make the phone call and see what they’ll give you in order to stay a customer!

So have you cancelled your cable TV service you, or would you? Let us know in the comments section!
