A few years back, my wife and I canceled satellite service at the house. Internet streaming, at a fraction of the cost, replaced the traditional broadcast format for our television viewing. After cutting the traditional TV cord, we never looked back or missed a commercial. We aren't alone pulling the plug on cable/satellite service.
What had started as a good value then witnessed “mission creep” as options and price escalated, with viewing pleasure diminishing. Years rolled by until the realization that the boob tube had become a money pit and I was the boob shoveling cash into the hole. Paying for hundreds of channels with little to watch serves as a segue to the concept of less is more.
