Who's a Cord Cutter?
I am.

Dropped DirecTV at $150/mth and picked up PS Vue for $35/mth.

RE: Who's a Cord Cutter?
I cut the cord, reattached the cord and cut the cord again.

Both have their pros and cons.

We've not had cable for a decade. We spend on Netflix and then Hulu when shows are running.

After each bill I pay I swear to myself I'm cutting the cord.

RE: Who's a Cord Cutter?
If you're paying $150 for DTV, you're doing it wrong. Call in and threaten to cancel, and they'll cut it in half, and give you all the movie channels and NFL Sunday Ticket for free.

With that said, I'm close to cutting, though it isn't about the cost, but more about the principle of giving money to media outlets that I despise. You can stream pretty much anything you want these days anyway.

Had Sling the Playstation vue now Hulu.
Need Hulu for SEC and Big Ten networks best sports mix also wife watches GH on Hulu.
I liked Playstation Vue's set up but upgrading and paying extra for B1G network made Hulu better.
Add Pluto because it is free especially if you pull for a Big Sky school or a conference on Stadium.
Four BSC games were on at once on Pluto Saturday. Looks like every home game if the school want to stream it.

I had 5 HD DVR receivers. I had the package just above their lower tier.

With PS Vue I get 5 profiles. It has a streaming equivalent of DVR. Not actually recording anything. It gets added to My Shows. No limit on how many simultaneous "recordings".

Oh, and when I called to cancel DirecTV they asked if they could make it worth my while to stay.

I told the agent if they could match or beat $35 / month I'd listen.

He laughed and said they couldn't.
