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.

OTA + OTT Streaming Makes Sense (and Cents!) for Cordcutters

Since the beginning of 2015, we’ve seen a wave of HBONOW game of thronesannouncements for new television streaming services and TV a-la-carte offerings. There’s been Sling TV, CBS All Access, HBO Now and Playstation Vue. NBC is also rumored to be planning a comedy-focused streaming service and others are saying Apple is planning a service including content from both broadcast and cable channels.

There’s never been more choice for consumers which is great news. However, some news reports have been focusing on how adding these services to get the equivalent of cable isn't really a good bargain...
