10 Reasons to Dump Cable Tv

10 Reasons to Dump Cable Tv

1. You can save over $1,400 a year!

Enough said here… If you can save over $1,400 a year, there is absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t consider dropping cable today.

2. Most of your cable bill is likely from “leasing” their hardware.

I am being charged $15 a month for my DVR and $10 a month for the little contraptions needed for my other 2 TVs. Before you know it, my cable bill is double what the advertised price was because of these damn “lease” charges.

3. Your TV most likely already accepts OTA TV.

Aside from a DTV antenna, your TV most likely will need nothing else to watch free over-the-air TV. TVs made before 2007 need a cheap device called a digital converter.

4. Netflix, Hulu & Amazon have great original shows.

All major streaming services actually commission their own original shows now. No longer do you need cable channels for great original programming.

5. It just feels good!

Between the ever-rising bills and shitty customer service… you know it will just feel good to call Comcast up and say “I’m Done!”.

6. Sports, TV Guide and DVR are no longer hurdles.

The MLB.tv, NHL.tv, NoCable TV Guide and Hulu services take care of all that for you. Hulu allows you to watch TV shows the next day. All national sports leagues have their own streaming service and we replace your “TV guide”.

7. Cable degrades your service!

This one blew my mind when I learned about it. Cable companies are actually ALLOWED to degrade the service they send you to help them save on transmission costs! Seriously… They charge you on average $123 a month for channels you don’t want and give you worse quality than if you just put up your own antenna. Wow.

8. 90% of all cable channels go unwatched.

Yeah, you knew this one. You page through your Guide and 10-channel page by 10-channel page you see absolutely nothing you want to watch. Most channels aren’t put there because the cable companies think you might like them… it’s because they have to.

9. You already have the Internet.

You already have the internet. When you dump cable and switch to streaming Hulu, Netflix or Amazon Prime Video, a good Internet package is all you really need. At least you will use 100% of that bill (unlike with cable because…).

10. DTV Antennas are cheap (and small)!

Our top-rated50-mile (and by far the most popular) DTV antenna is around $40 on Amazon. That is about half of the typical US household’s monthly cable bill. It is also small and light enough that it could probably be shipped in a manila envelope (but it’s not).
