Savvy cord cutters know that there’s no ‘deal’ from a cable or satellite company that could ever offer the same freedom and cost savings as cutting the cord on cable TV.
This week we’re celebrating our cord cutting customers’ independence from the top five evils of cable and satellite TV.
Why did you cut the cord?
We cut the cord for several reasons, but the rising cost was the primary one.
We’ve had Dish Network, DirecTV and, most recently, cable TV. Each seems to find reasons to implement a price increase.
I retired 5 years ago, and my wife retired last year. Our income has changed.
When our cable bill went over $200 a month I knew we had to do… something.

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.
While cordcutting articles tend to focus on users getting rid of cable, there are just as many people anxious to ditch their satellite dishes. Folks new to the concept of Over-the-Air TV may wonder if they can reuse their dish for something other than creating a birdbath.
