I cut the cord and instead of replacing the TV with alternatives like netflix, hulu and HBOgo I became more active. Started going to the gym doing volunteer work etc. Not only did I save money but I am a much better person than I used to be. Thank you greedy Cable/media companies for helpinh me curb my addiction to the boobtube. I never would have gotten off the horse if it was not for your greed.

I know many in my area who use uverse internet and subscribe to satellite service for TV because it came out cheaper for them.

I have DISH and Netflix. I cannot get UHD programming from Netflix because, although my JVC500 projector would accept the UHD I don't have sufficient broadband width. I can't see any way around this. The only solution I can see is to purchase a UHD player when it's specs. are acceptable to me and then buy ultra blu-ray discs.

No. Likely never will cut the 'cord'. But looking at my college aged kids, they have no interest in cable or satellite and do not subscribe away at school. Even though our Comcast bills are just over $300/ month (cable, DVR all TVs, phone, Internet), it's part of our lifestyle. A single bill is nice as well.

Basically I think cable / sat is more popular in older generations rather than kids / adults in their 20s or 30s.

Goodbye to a great audio and video genius and writer... JOHN GANNON. I enjoyed your friendship, wit and a nice long run we took around Indianapolis at CEDIA years back... and for buying my Runco 980 Ultra years back... you saved my ass! Rest in peace.

That's fine but people like me don't have that option.

Nope. Watch wayyyy too much sports and websites like VIPBox and firstrowsports are delayed, have horrific resolution, and you might as well google 'all the ads in the world' because that's what it feels like when trying to watch on ANY of those sites. That's the biggest reason I can't cut the cord. Too many sports to follow. I'm also a huge soccer fan, so, having BeIn and NBCSN at my fingertips is too crucial.

This is where the MLS, NCAA, NFL, MLB, NHL, FIFA etc should really take over their own sport and offer a way to stream every game even if you are in the market for that team. No black outs because you live close to a major city and some cable network has the rights, that is total BS. Should be able to subscribe to a plan and pay the league directly to see the games you want to see.

A lot of Netflix and Amazon. Gave up on Comcast xfinity two years ago and have not looked back since. Only reason I'd get TV again would be if my city got google fiber.

Cut the cord this month.
I've had Dish Network for 6 years, cable before that.
I've wanted to cut the cord for years, but my wife really likes to just turn on DIY, Cooking channel, Travel Channel, Food Network and the like. Until the last year, there was no real way to do that.
But Dish cannibalized their own users by introducing SlingTV. SlingTV just happens to have exactly the channels we watched, without the other 1000 channels we didn't care about.
We've had Netflix for years. I will have to get an HDHomeRun to get all of the current superhero shows, which is most of what I watch (I used WinXP MCE with a tuner card before the dish dvr so I've still got a large HDTV antenna in the attic to hook up to). Then we'll have to buy one or two shows on Google Play that we don't get through Sling or Netflix.
Overall, we will be saving $900 per year by dropping Dish for SlingTV according to my calculations.

I'm going to be getting a ShieldTV in the next week to become our new video hub. After much research, I think it will offer the best interface for using Sling, Netflix, Google Play TV/Movies, and with Kodi it can even do Bluray rips with Lossless HD audio bitstreaming, so it may be replacing the HTPC entirely as our new entertainment hub, with the HTPC being relegated to BD ripping and file serving duties.

A week ago I dumped Cox Cable after being their customer (and their predecessors in this market) since the 80's. Bought an OTA Tivo Roamio and signed up for PlayStation Vue and HBO Now (via Amazon Fire Stick). Saving about $70 a month and getting pretty much everything we had before. (Lacking WGN and MLB Network.) What put me over the top was PlayStation Vue having DVR and Fox Sports Arizona. Already had Netflix, Amazon Prime and MLB.tv. Not quite as reliable as cable and not nearly as user friendly, although the Tivo is way cool. Working well so far.

Have not had cable for 15 years. OTA all the way. With a rotor I can watch different areas around Houston, Bryan-College Station, Beaumont. Some of these local news channels are great. Especially the Farm and Ranch report in Bryan. I've learned a lot about cows and crops. Have internet but we have really slow speeds as we have no Comcast, AT&T, Fios or TW. Suddenlink and Consolidated are the only game in town.

Yeah, I got rid of my CableOne home internet & cable package years ago because I never got the 50mbps speeds I was promised. We were lucky to get 5mbps up during peak hours, and 7-10 off peak. Even though I have free WiFi at my apt complex, I've been running my Firestick & most recently FireTv device off my 4G Hotspot (with my Verizon grandfathered unlimited data plan) and it's worked great for the past few years. During peak hours it may occasionally drop to 10-12up, but usually stays anywhere between 25-35 mbps up.
Once you commit to cutting the cord, there's just no going back.

I cut the cord several years ago and haven't looked back. I have an Apple TV 4 and an Apple TV 3 for streaming Netflix, HBO, HULU, etc. and made my own homemade antenna for OTA programming. My in-laws have cable and allow me to use their login information to access programming on the the various apps on the Apple TVs like ESPN, HGTV, Food Network, etc. I spend $0 a month on programming (excluding my internet bill) and couldn't be happier.

very happily cut the chord

yup.. i moved into my new house in october of 2014 and decided then to say goodbye to cable... i miss flipping channels aimlessly, but that's about it.
i have a plex media server setup at my house with 2500 movies, 100 tv shows and 5000 songs (best of the best of the best)... and we watch youtube videos whenever we want to watch something less predictable.
i don't miss it and my internet bill is just $65... save a TON of money because tv, and reality tv and the sorry kardashians (ugh!) can stay far away form this house!

I cut the cord about a year ago. No regrets. I kept Cox high speed internet, but dropped cable and phone service. I attached an Antenna to the side of my house for HD over the air broadcasts ( I can catch about 20 stations, including all major networks and Fox ). I have Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Direct TV Now (about $35/ month).

I went from about a $300.00 bill for Cable/Internet/Phone to about $150 a month for everything.

Much better.

Consuming all entertainment over the air or via on-line apps was the greatest thing we ever did for ourselves concerning TV entertainment. Cable and Satellite is the biggest ripoff in the USA.

Home Theatre and Audio Nut.
Equipment: Marantz SR8002 Receiver, Pioneer Elite Receiver, Sony Turntable, Tascam CD-A500, Pioneer RT-707 Reel to Reel, LG Blu-Ray, LG UHD Blu-Ray, 5 Screens (Samsung 75 Smart, Sharp 50 4K Smart Roku, Changhong 40, JVC 32 and Polaroid 32), 3 additional Roku's.
We cut the cord and consume all entertainment over IP using a TPLink AC1750 Router.

This really depends on where you live. Cutting the chord for me would just cost me more money to get ESPN, BTN, etc. I only pay $98 a month for internet/cable. Without the cable, stand-alone internet is $59. Just can’t beat cable tv for $39. I also get Netflix for free with T-Mobile and my job pays that bill.

We cut the cord a few years ago. Don't regret it at all. Dropped our cable bill from $150/mo to $50/mo for just 100Mbps cable internet. I don't think we'll ever go back unless there becomes a truly a la cart cable option where we could pick the few cable channels we actually watched without all the stupid extra fees they tack on. There is just so much content on Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube that we don't really feel like we're missing out on anything. I do get HBO Go when GOT is on, but cancel it afterwards.

Dumped DirecTV

Dumped DirecTV after 15 years, mostly secondary to their unreliable wifi Genie system. Been very satisfied with Hulu Live with some netflix and AmaPrime. I even have about all the sports I need/want. I've actually been shocked what a small transition it was for a savings of over $100/month.

I came very close to cutting the cord a year ago this month after experimenting with alternatives beforehand. I called my cable company and told them flat out that I wanted to keep my Internet the same as it was and my home phone but that I wanted to cancel my cable television service completely. When they asked me why, I explained that I was already paying as much as I wanted to but was not able to get the level of service that I wanted (I was missing several channels that I used to enjoy when I had more robust service). They then said if they could put me on hold for a couple of moments, they might be able to make me a deal if I was interested. So I agreed and was on hold for about three minutes, and they came back and said that they would up my level of service by giving me four additional theme packs with my cable TV service, double my Internet speed, and add two additional calling features to my phone, all for HALF of what I was already paying for the first year. After the first year, I could keep the new level of service and still pay exactly what I was paying before I made the phone call for the second year. After the second year, the deal would end and I would have to call back and negotiate again. So I agreed to this deal, which saved me over $700 in all and gave me better overall service. Plus, I forgot to mention, they also upgraded my cable box, gave me a second box for the bedroom, and gave me a new Wi-Fi modem for my Internet. I am quite pleased one year into this deal but still not sure if I want to keep the cable TV after this second year ends. For me, the decision might be easier than for most since I am not much into sports.

I recently moved from a place where I had Verizon FIOS, and it was both pretty spectacular and pretty expensive. Right now, we just have "high speed" Internet feeding my Roku. We subscribe to Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu, along with a handful of free channels. I wish I could watch Formula 1 and IndyCar racing, but those seasons are just about over.

I expect we'll be finding a house before the seasons begin, and I'll get a package that allows me to see those sports, and I'll definitely keep the Roku.

I know what I like.

About the same for me, think its been about 10 years since I ditched cable TV. I do not watch sports, news and then found I was watching less and less cable TV when I first subscribed to Netflix. Then I went a month without watching it at all, then another and I decided I could not justify spending $75 a month for my cable package and go that long without watching any of it. I ditched it and replaced it with $8 a month and have never looked back. I currently use Netflix, Amazon Prime but only because it came with my Prime account, I honestly do not watch a lot on there and lastly I have BritBox which gives me a bunch of British shows that I really like or learn I like as I discover. So all in all I am paying around $20 a month for TV I watch opposed to $75 a month for TV I did not watch.

Yep. After a decade of Charter/Spectrum having a monopoly in my area, the local electric company came out with a fairly priced fiber solution a few years ago. I now get 250 Mbps up/down for a flat $45 a month. I use Youtube TV and Netflix for my primary entertainment needs, substituted occasionally by Prime Video.
