Cutting The Cord On Your Cable TV Service? 3 Reasons Not To.

Browsing Movie On Cable TVAre you thinking of cutting the cord on your cable TV service? And subscribing to the latest streaming option in Pembroke Pines? Today, streaming TV and movies is easier than ever, but believe it or not, there are still some positives in retaining your cable TV service. So, before you cut the cord on your cable TV subscription, consider the advantages and disadvantages of doing so.

For some folks, the cost of keeping the cable TV subscription going may be the main concern leading them to cut the cord. But some others will keep their cable TV subscription because they’re getting a good deal on a bundle. Yet others don’t want to miss out on any of the local live sports action, their service provides in Pembroke Pines.

Things to consider before cutting the cord.

  • Viewing habits – For many users who are simply accustomed to their cable TV or enjoy channel flipping, it may be worth keeping cable.
  • Programs – Are your favorite shows only available through a cable TV plan? Or are they available “On Demand”? Or with a TV antenna?
  • Sports – Sports programming is the big one when deciding whether to cut the cord. For many sports fans, keeping your cable TV plan is the best option. Although many streaming services now offer the ability to watch major sports teams play, they may not cover the local games, you currently follow.
  • Price – Will an internet-only plan cost less than what you are paying today?  Or more? Many service providers offer an internet and TV bundle that will save you money. Perhaps, you can negotiate a lower rate or add some other perks to your package to remain a customer?
  • Technology – Let’s face it, modern streaming services do require users to be quite tech-savvy. Not only when using the service, but more so when things break down and a bit of technical troubleshooting is on the cards. This can be a genuine challenge for seniors, who would rather stay with their cable.

The Main benefit of not cutting the cord: Not Relying On The Internet

The first and most obvious benefit of not cutting the cord on your cable TV service is not having to rely on the internet to enjoy TV. With streaming services to watch your favorite shows and movies, you have to rely on your internet connection. This becomes a problem if there are internet outages due to the Florida weather, especially during hurricane season. Or your streaming service provider can face unforeseen technical problems, resulting in outages or connection problems, resulting in slow internet speeds.

Besides, unreliable or downright slow internet speed is a challenge, especially if it’s peak traffic time when internet speeds get the most affected. And, for folks living away from the city centers, speedy network access can become a real issue. Rural areas may not have the best internet infrastructure, and slow speeds and buffering can become an issue.

Another benefit of not cutting the cord: Uninterrupted Live sports

Netflix is good, and its 22 million users will swear by it. But the same users will swear at it too, because they won’t find the Super Bowl or Olympics there! As a sports fan, even the basic cable or satellite TV packages ensure that you can always watch your favorite teams and sports. Streaming services may let you watch the highlights online, or watch the game later, but watching sports live is an altogether different experience.

And Finally: Pay-per-view, New and On Demand titles

Many users think that only streaming services provide users with over-the-top services. And the corresponding freedom to pick and choose what you watch.

Well, guess what? Cable and TV services often give subscribers the same freedom. And then some. Most cable providers offer access to thousands of On Demand titles, which are available when — and where — you want them. Plus, you can also order pay-per-view events such as boxing and MMA matches, or new movie releases, often before they’re available on streaming services.
