Default Cut the Cord

It’s earnings season, and we are slowly getting a look at the number of TV subscribers each traditional pay-TV service is losing every month. So far, Comcast, AT&T, Spectrum, and Verizon Fios have reported losses totaling 669,000.
According to the earning reports, Verizon Fios lost 151,000 subscribers, Comcast lost 106,000 subscribers, Spectrum lost 66,000 subscribers, and AT&T lost 346,000 subscribers totaling 669,000 subscribers in the third quarter of 2018. This works out to 233,000 Americans canceling traditional pay-TV every month or about 7,700 people canceling cable TV every day. At this rate, just these four pay-TV providers will lose almost 2.8 million subscribers over the next year.

This link to Cord Cutters News is excellent. I have only just started reading through it, but I am amazed at the amount of easy to understand info it contains. I am into cutting the Cord, however I am running into some real hesitation from the person who shares my life! He needs to turn on the box and have what he wants to watch right in front of him! It is hard to wrap your head around technology if you are not really into it. I shall persevere.

For Comcast, 106,000 cable customers reprsents only 1 in 200 customers. Also, during the same period, they added 363,000 Internet customers. So, I wouldn't count them out just yet. Also, the streaming service companies are providing essentially the same product as the cable companies. The only real difference is the cost. So, the changes noted are just a result of price competition.

Default Xfinity aka Comcast GONE

I just removed my xfinity and replaced it with Century Link fiber 1gb internet service. They gave free install, free modem and router, and $65 per month. I subscribe to Direct TV Now, Netflix, and Prime video. I stream them with an Apple Tv, Amazon Firestick, and a Roku Ultra. Wonderful performance and more than 70 live channels including all locals. The $65 per month is guaranteed to NEVER increase. No contract. Total cost to install $65.

Very happy speeds are somewhere about 300 mbps. I play video games, watch TV, use Alexa, listen to Amazon Music and Pandora, surf the web, get email, etc. No problem buffering or having plenty of bandwidth speed.

I have three TVs, two Xboxes, Alexa, Google Home, wifi light bulbs and switches, two MacBooks, and an iPad.

Direct TV Now is a streaming service with 65 channels costing $40/month plus Netflix and I am an Amazon Prime customer.
