Cancel Cable, Keep your Sanity: How Tablo Works for Cord Cutters with Kids

Kermit Sesame StreetWhen you’ve got a young family, any kind of savings in the monthly budget is very much appreciated. This is why many couples with kids are choosing to cut the cord on cable or satellite subscriptions, especially since they’re usually too busy with everyday life to watch much of their favorite shows live anyway.

That being said, saving money on TV to put towards more critical budget items (like groceries and diapers) doesn’t mean parents need to give up those 20 minute slices of freedom that a kids’ program can provide. Tablo is the perfect balance of immediate and on-demand access to quality kids’ TV programming for cord-cutting parents, allowing them to cancel their cable bill while still keeping their sanity.
