Final Thoughts

A Quick Summary

  • Cord-cutting simply means switching out your high-priced cable TV subscription to less expensive digital content sources, such as free to air channels and online video streaming platforms.
  • In many cases, cutting the cord allows you to save money while getting access to an even better selection of content, so it can indeed be a win-win. However, certain content types may be exclusive to cable TV, such as some series or live sports broadcasts.
  • You’ll typically need a pretty fast internet connection and a smart TV or a laptop and an HDMI cable to cut the cord.
  • Although cord-cutting will usually save you money, it can sometimes work out more expensive than just paying for cable TV, so you should do your research before making the switch.
  • Some of the best video streaming platforms available in the US are Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video.
