Just a curious poll
As we talk about streaming vs cable or satellite, I'm always curious about the demographics on the board. Viewing habits of young people have changed compared to the 30+ crowd. So was just curious of what makes up this board.

I dumped Satellite TV over a year ago. Paying $100 month for the 5 channels that I actually watched was crazy. ESPN is struggling with declining subscription viewers and escalating programming costs. Sling TV and individual subscription viewing is the future.

We do this along with Amazon Firestick and put up an antenna for over the air.
Sling - $35
Netflix - $9.99
Antenna - 1 time cost of $45

I'd love to dump TWC, but the wife it technically challenged and hates any type of change.

I have DirecTV, Netflix and Amazon (Roku and Chromecast), and an antenna.I get Direct for less than $50 a month because when I threatened to leave they gave me a $50 credit for 12 months.

I have cable (I'm three months from age 30), but I'm about to get rid of it for internet only and possibly get a few streaming services here and there. I will save me about $100 a month at first, but I have a feeling as time goes on, shows and movies will be more spread out among the different services and I will be paying the same as before.

I'm 58. I cut the cord years back. Set up my own media library, hooked up an antenna and subscribe to Netflix and Amazon Prime (more for shipping than content).

My great nephew came over and set up our Firestick. We weren't using it because we didn't know how. Still trying to figure it out.
