How I Cut the Cord with Tablo - by Stacy, the Cold Turkey Cord Cutter

Stacy How I Cut the Cord with TabloWhy did you cut the cord? How much money are you saving each month?
My name is Stacy and I'm a cable addict. I'm here to share my story in the hopes that other cable addicts will follow my lead.

Earlier this year, with our cable services increasing in price yet again and our pocket book getting stretched even thinner we decided it was time to either stop watching television or find an alternative. I went to a number of review websites and the name that popped up again and again was Tablo. When one of my closest friends brought the product up in conversation and said he was going to use Tablo to cut the cord, I knew it was a sign!

How I Cut the Cord with Tablo – By Tom, the Dish Ditching Cordcutter

Why did you cut the cord? How much money are you saving each month?
One day it dawned on me that the only TV I watched through my cable provider were channels that I could get free with an Over-The-Air (OTA) HDTV antenna. I was paying $98 a month for Dish Network and realized that as much as it pleased me to just pay money for something I didn’t use (haha), I was done with pay TV.

How I Cut the Cord with Tablo – by Brett, the Smugly Superior Cord Cutter

Why did you cut the cord? How much money are you saving each month?
Brett Tablo Cord CutterI recently moved and decided I didn't want to pay anyone anything for TV anymore. I didn't plan to stop watching TV - I just wanted to stop paying for it. I was spending close to $150 a month to get programming from a mid-tier satellite package to four TVs. Now I spend $0 a month. I get so excited whenever I think about this that a little pee comes out.

How I Cut the Cord with Tablo – By John, the On-Demand TV Watching Cord Cutter

Why did you cut the cord? How much money are you saving each month?

John Tablo cordcutterI was paying $200 per month with Cox Cable. We were spending all that money to spend most of our time channel surfing for something worthwhile to watch. I started cord cutting with a Roku to watch Netflix, Amazon, & Hulu.  After researching OTA DVRs (Tablo and TiVo), I chose to add Tablo for its technology and money saving features.

Specifically, Tablo allows me to upgrade the replaceable hard drive to any size. The Live TV grid guide looks so advanced and polished compared to any cable provider. Access to all of Tablo’s features isn’t free but in comparison to pay TV it’s a great deal. I paid less than $50 for a yearly subscription.

How I Cut the Cord with Tablo – By Russ, the Family Time Cord Cutter

Why did you cut the cord? How much money are you saving each month?
Russ Tablo cord cutterI'm the kind of guy who likes to have control over my lifestyle. I know that a good company needs a plan for recurring revenue, but I was just sick and tired of sacrificing my money to the visual entertainment overlords who had me shackled by a contract.

So I went on a ’techno-diet‘! By that I mean, I resisted the urge to get new gear from the satellite company just because I could at the cost of 2 more years’ worth of billable chains. After 6 long months, my contract finally expired and I kicked the DirecTV habit!

How I Cut the Cord with Tablo – By Nick, the Cord Cutting Gadget Guru

Why did you cut the cord? How much money are you saving each month?
The writing on the wall has been there for years: the cable and satellite companies run an inflexible, poorly reliable, and expensive service to provide what should be the opposite of what they provide. It should be of reasonable cost, flexible, and extraordinarily reliable!

How I Cut the Cord with Tablo – By Ross, the Escaping from Pay TV Cord Cutter

Why did you cut the cord? How much money are you saving each month?
I’ve been a customer of all of the major cable/satellite providers. Over and over again I was duped by their introductory pricing only to see my bills skyrocket to close to $100 per month for pretty basic TV services. For 5 years prior to cutting the cord, I had annual negotiations with my satellite provider to try to get my monthly costs down again. It became a huge pain to make those calls and still end up with minimal savings. When a friend of mine talked about how his family had moved to an HDTV antenna and cut the cord, I immediately began to plan my escape from pay TV. After installing everything, I'm saving about $65 per month and I still get to watch everything I did before I switched. I should've done this years ago.

How I Cut the Cord with Tablo – By Andy, the Saving for College Cord Cutter

Andy FamilyWhy did you cut the cord? How much money are you saving each month? 
The retention department dance with the cable company every 6-12 months was getting really old. Over the last three promotional periods, our rate for internet/cable had risen from $99 to $160/month. I did a little research and just about everything we watched was available Over-the-Air. After cutting the cord we pay just $34.98/month.

How I Cut the Cord with Tablo – By Tom, the Sports-Loving Cord Cutter

Why did you cut the cord? How much money are you saving each month?
Cord Cutter TomI was sick of paying for what I didn't need or use. It’s now becoming cool not to pay for bloated cable subscriptions. The internet is making cable obsolete and cable companies know this. My cable bill was $280 per month and now I pay $62 (not including the subscription services, some of which I was paying for already). If you can save an amount that makes a difference in your life and you can meet your home entertainment needs, then why not give it a try?

How I Cut the Cord with Tablo – By Di, The Cruising Cord Cutter

Di Tablo Cord CutterWhy did you cut the cord? How much money are you saving each month?
There was a posting on a friend’s facebook page, that she had done away with her cable TV and replaced it with Roku, due to poor customer support from her cable provider. I too had frustration and angst when dealing with this same provider.

My interest was piqued by this Roku device that she was using to replace cable TV, so my sweetie Paul and I started our cord cutting home project.
