Before the invention of streaming services like Netflix, cable was pretty necessary. How else would you watch Survivor? But now, if you’re still paying for a cable plan, you’re totally getting scammed. Why on earth would you pay $100 or more to watch shows and movies you can access … pretty much anywhere else on the internet? If you have Amazon Prime, Netflix, or Hulu, your TV viewing is covered. You already pay for internet, so there’s no sense in paying more for cable. Even sports fans who think they need cable to watch the game can get cheaper subscription plans through ESPN. Not only are you paying for cable, but you’re getting served commercials — which basically means your cable provider is getting paid double (1X from you 1X from the advertiser) to keep your eyes on the screen.  Cut the (cable) cord, you absolutely don’t need it.
