O-TA My! Cord-Cutting with George Takei

Cord Cutting George TakeiWho doesn’t love George Takei? You may remember him from Star Trek, but the guy is also an author, internet superstar, campaigner for human rights, flogger of a fragrance (called Eau My – ha!) and now hosts his own web series on YouTube called Takei’s Take.

Takei’s Take has covered topics from online dating to the future of journalism but yesterday they chatted about our favourite topic – cord cutting!

The one thing George gets wrong though is a common cord-cutting myth: that you can’t get local news and sports.

That’s not true because local TV stations ‘beam’ programming directly to you with HDTV Over-The-Air broadcasts. This means you can watch local news and sports as well as basic network sitcoms and dramas live, as they happen. And with Tablo you can browse, stream and record all of that great programming.

If you’d like to ‘make it so’ and still access great HDTV content without a cable subscription, check out our store to buy Tablo, the DVR for cord-cutters.
