We are cutting the cord. After years of having one cable monopoly to choose from, waiting for someone to show between 8 and 4 for service, paying for channels I don't watch but come in the "package deal" and most recently threats of a network with my fav shows being dropped... we are dropping cable and looking at alternatives.
Aaron has been ready to do this for years but I wasn't. Getting rid of cable felt like a step backwards. I loved our DVR and watching shows when I wanted to watch them. With all the new alternatives now however, this feels like a step into the future. There are blogs and tweets and articles all about cutting the cord.
The big eye opener was streaming Netflix through our Wii. It all became so much more doable. Over the past few days we have looked at Google TV, Apple TV, Vudu, Amazon Video, Hulu Plus, Boxee and Roku. We are down to choosing between Boxee and Roku. We'll see how it goes.
