Cutting the cord is an excellent way to cut out some needless spending from your monthly budget. If you’ve been thinking about taking the plunge into a world without cable, there’s never been a better time than now. With a variety of streaming services that cover nearly all of today’s cable and broadcast programming (and then some), plus countless streaming media devices that give you access to those services, it’s easier than ever to watch all of your favorite programs without a cable subscription.
Are you sure you want to save money, but not so sure about what all of those other terms mean? Well, you’re in luck. We’ve laid out everything you need to know about cutting the cord in the following video, from making sure your internet connection is fast enough to deciding on whether you should go with Netflix or Hulu—or both. The second video explores today’s best streaming media players, and which one will work best for your needs.
