Cord Cutting Myth

I've always felt cord cutting was a bit of myth. By the time you sign up for all different services to get the same content are you really saving much, if any money.

Also, each service has a limit to how many simultaneous streams you are allowed. This is where I've noted that most people who write articles about the benefits of cord cutting rarely mention children. Most seem to be either single or fairly newly married. A family of 4 or 5 can easily be watching 4 or 5 things at the same time. If the children are small, simply tuning the Disney channel is easier than setting up playlists from a streaming provider. A live feed is critical.

If you end up subscribing to Netflix, Hulu, CBS, etc. Aren't you still ultimately paying for...

I dropped my cable last December. I pay $35 for Internet and $35 for PlayStation Vue. I'm saving $65 a month. No Netflix or Hula for me either. Most people don't know that all the major channels have free apps where you can watch on demand. I have a Roku and Chromecast to view those apps. Plus PlayStation has a DVR. So you can save money.

I use a Mohu Leaf to get local channels OTA for free. There are 2 Cartoon channels that broadcast 24 hours a day where I live that I get with my antenna.
