The quality and quantity of shows on streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu, has increased exponentially over the last few years. This improvement of content has prompted many of our clients to consider “cutting the cord” and completely move away from traditional cable. While there is an appeal to tossing your cable bill into the bin, the drawback is the overwhelming number of streaming options out there, which can make your decision confusing.
What to Consider When Cutting the Cord
First address your viewing preferences, such as how important watching live sports is to you; how often you watch movies; if you prefer to maintain your subscription to live local channels; or if you frequently use gaming systems. If channel and service options aren’t complex enough, there are also multiple types of streaming devices to choose from— Amazon Fire, Nintendo Switch, Roku, Apple TV, Xbox One, Chromecast, Sony Smart TV, and more. To further complicate things: Not all streaming services work on every device.
