Top 5 Reasons to Cancel Cable Today

Are you tired of paying a small fortune for your cable package, only to pay for hundreds of channels you don’t watch and to be charged extra for many of the ones that you do?  If so, you are not alone. In 2010, for the first time, cable subscription rates actually declined. Today, we will give you five great reasons why you may want to follow suit and cut the cable.

#1 Save Money

With streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu Plus, you can pay a fraction of your monthly cable bill and still watch your favorite shows plus a whole lot more.

#2 Watch What You Want, When You Want It

Enjoy access to the shows you love, regardless of the time or the day of week. All of the alternatives to cable offer content on-demand, so that you can watch whatever you want, when you want to. You don’t have to limit yourself to what’s currently on the air either. There’s no need to remember to DVR your favorite shows or worry about having space to record your favorite shows. Think about how many times you been flipping through channels you’ve never even heard of looking for something good to watch… and now imagine just deciding what you want to watch and then putting it on.

#3 Watch Anywhere

You don’t have to be at home in front of your TV to watch your favorite shows. Streaming services enable you to watch almost anywhere—on your computer, smart phone, tablet on the go, or use an ultra-portable device to access your content on TVs in hotels or anywhere else you’re staying away from home. It’s like always traveling with a huge library of entertainment choices.

#4 True HD

Did you know that your cable company compresses even your local HD channels in order to make room for more content?  If you opt instead to watch the over the air version through an antennae or to stream HD content, you give up that compression and the result is a higher quality picture.

#5 Less Hardware

Services like Netflix and Hulu Plus make use of your existing hardware, whether it is a game console, computer, DVD player, or even your TV.  This means that there is no need to pay for a cable box or other unnecessary hardware to watch the shows that you love.

Looking at the facts, it is easy to understand why so many people are cutting the cord on cable providers these days!
