Cutting the Cord on Cable TV
the average cable subscriber pays nearly 3 times as muchnow as they did in 2001
Back in January we did a show about the cable industry and how it works. We found a lot of people ready to “cut the cord.”
Why are so many ready to dump cable? Well, we learned that the average cable subscriber pays nearly 3 times as much now as they did in 2001. The average household now spends $86 a month, and that cost is expected to climb to $200 by 2020! Okay, those are some good reasons.
And when these “post-cable” DIY enthusiasts get talking, they’re full of ideas about new ways to get the TV shows, movies and news they rely on.
So, today we’re diving in to the world of Hulu, Roku, Netflix and Apple to try to see if we’re still hung up by cable...or if its time to break free!
