If you are like me you have kids who watch TV. With cable TV that means kids seeing ads for toys and other services and, consequently, kids begging for the latest toys or to see the latest movies.
It also often means kids getting access to shows you may not want them to see. Even if the shows are meant for kids, they may not be shows you want your kids to watch.
Here is where cord cutting can save parents money and hours of saying no. With great services like Amazon Video, Netflix, and now Hulu being ad-free kids no longer see ads for stuff they just don’t need to see.
You can also gain more control over what your kids watch. It could be as simple as using services like Amazon Video and only purchasing content you have pre-screened or using Fire TVs parental controls to limit viewing time. Now parents have more control than ever.
While this is far from the best reason to cancel cable, if you are a parent you will know how annoying TV ads can be. This is just one more benefit on top of saving money, having a bigger selection of content, and freedom from long-term contracts.
No matter what your reasons are to cancel cable TV, the benefits are many and ever-growing.
