Who doesn't want to cut that cable cord? Certainly, anyone who has paid their fair share of cable bills and sat in front of their television with little to no true entertainment value knows just how much they want to end their tumultuous and rather expensive run with cable.
The real issue and problems with cable television is its lack of pure value. The average cable bill is around $200 per month, which is costing you $2400 per year, and that's a nice chunk of change when you consider what that could buy if you cut the cord over the course of 5 years.
That's well over $10,000 in cash that has gotten you, what exactly?
I've tried to argue that cable is a necessary evil, but that argument gets thinner and harder to justify with every monthly bill paid or hours of flipping through channels and realizing there isn't much on to watch, if anything, and when you want to watch a movie, it had better be on cable or you'll be paying that much more for a pay channel such as HBO or Starz.
Comcast and even the large scale satellite dish providers are battling for dollars and customers given the fact that the rise of the streaming service has chipped away at disgruntled consumers who are burnt out and broke on the pricing that cable and dish to some degree have delivered in recent years.
