December General Meeting: Cord Cutting

  • Yesterday · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This should prove to be a very popular topic for those many of us that use cable TV to watch television. Our cable TV bills are so expensive, with packages that include many channels that we don’t watch. And the price keeps going up each year.

DACS member Bill Saturno will explain all about “cord cutting”—stopping your cable TV subscription—and possibly saving over $1000 every year. The discussion will allow you to better understand how you can do this by adopting the lifestyle of a “cord cutter.” Learn about all the alternatives to an expensive cable subscription and be informed before leaping into this ever changing new media consumption trend.

    We had dropped cable last year when I was out of work, and needed to cut expenses. Needed to keep internet (otherwise how would I job hunt) and weren't about to drop Netflix (besides, Netflix was under $10/mo, cableTV was $80/mo). I had already been considering reducing our cable subscription to the absolute minimum, realizing a lot of our TV viewing was more a matter of turning on the TV and seeing if there was anything worthwhile to watch. The two or three shows we specifically watched were simply not worth the cost. And some shows, once you've stopped watching them, you really don't miss (since you can find equivalent shows on streaming).
    We *may* add a Hulu subscription later; I had considered a paid Hulu subscription (the commercial-free option), but when they decided to cut-back or drop their free (commercial-supported) option, I didn't like the idea I was being *forced* into the choice. So no Hulu for now.

      Speaking of other money saving ideas, depending no your household requirements, you may be able to whittle down your service costs. Im at $40/mo. pricepoint access with DSL with little service interruption.

      A lot of options were covered. It's nice to know I can at least be a cord shaver if not a cord cutter. Thanks Bill.
