There’s a lot of talk these days about how people are cutting the proverbial cable cord, but before you break-up with your cable or satellite partner you’ll want to do some research to make sure it’s the right decision for you and your family.
What kind of programming do you watch? An antenna will get you access to the major networks (ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX). If you forego the antenna, shows are fairly accessible on the network’s website for free and through streaming subscriptions for a small fee. Sports programming is a different story and tough to find without a cable or satellite connection, especially for any game on ESPN.
How important is it that you watch it “real time” or “live?” If you can’t wait a few hours or maybe even a few days for your favorite show to become available online, cutting the cord may not be for you. Is watching your favorite team “live” a must? You might want to think twice then.
What kind of equipment is needed to get started? It depends on what kind of content you want and how you want to access it.
