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.

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.
