So its only been, what, 48 hours since we broke from cable and I'm not even seeing very small differences in my daily TV habits. Which is evidence that we should have done this a long time ago:)
I've been thumbing through articles today about cord cutting and there is inevitable fear mongering about how its not all its cracked up to be. Most of these articles highlight the fact that there is almost too many available options with different features, capabilities, etc, Or if you use all of them, you are financially right back where you started. So the takeaway is its not worth it, which I say is hogwash.
Streaming isn't cable, so you shouldn't go into it acting like it is. What you CAN do is embrace it for what it is and the flex it offers. Too many options? Worried about the costs ballooning? To start research the areas of overlap between the apps and stick to two or three until you get used to the cord cutting life. That helps manage the technical adoption and your savings while you get adjusted to streaming. If you view it the same way you do the apps on your phone, you will feel more confident in your ability to manage between all of your options. No one says today that its waaaaay too much to have 20 apps on your smartphone, it just took time to adopt to something new.
Don't rule out a new cost saving strategy because a naysayer believes it is too complicated for you to learn. That fear is why many of us stuck with cable so long in the first place. Trust your ability to learn, grow, and customize your OWN needs. Happy streaming!
