I work full time to help millions of Americans break free from high cable TV bills by staying on top of the latest cord cutting news to bringing you my tips; however, sometimes the best tips come from your fellow cord cutters.
Yesterday we asked our readers for their top cord cutting tips and this is what they sent us:
Research, research, research…using sites like this. Also, use the free trials for whatever service you are interested in.
Have everything up and running and try for a month before cancelling your cable.
Gregory J Blajian:
My best tip would be to analyze your viewing habits and assess what you really can’t live without. It’s amazing how little you miss a channel when you realize how little you watched it. People get connected to “I have 140 channels” but don’t realize that they only watch 10–20 on a regular basis.
Don’t expect to know everything on day one. With evolving technology things are constantly changing. Utilize free trials to determine the right option for your household.
Take an inventory of what you ACTUALLY watch and not just what is available to you. You’ll most likely find that your needs are far narrower than you think.
That was the #1 thing that led us to cut the cord.
These are great tips every new cord cutter should consider. Remember I always recommend taking your time to set up everything before you become a cord cutter. No need to rush into cord cutting. That often results in overpaying and frustration.
