Frank, aka PCGuy, has published another one of his Truthful Tuesday posts, and this week Frank wants to know…
How do you watch TV? Do you just watch whatever local channels your digital antenna can pick out of the air, or do you subscribe to cable or satellite, or have you jumped on the streaming bandwagon? Perhaps it’s some combination thereof, or perhaps you don’t even watch TV. Whatever the case, please enlighten us!
According to my WordPress stats, my blog has more than 4,600 followers, but it seems that there is only a small fraction of those “followers” who actually read my blog on a regular basis. Cable TV is like WordPress followers. There are hundreds of cable TV channels, but most of us regularly watch only a small fraction of the channels available. And because cable providers bundle so many channels into packages or tiers, you end up paying for channels you rarely, if ever, watch.
Earlier this year, I cut the cord. I dumped my cable provider, Xfinity/Comcast, in favor of steaming. I bought a Roku Streaming Stick and subscribed to a handful of streaming services plus local broadcast TV stations. And I essentially get everything that I had been watching on cable TV for less than half the cost.
