A blog I keep up with (because its a great blog and coincidentally, I’m related to the dude) called, People helping people. Powerful stuff., has a great article this week on cutting the cable cord. He lays out for those of us that are considering making this change the steps he is going through and the costs associated with removing cable TV from his life and going all-in on digital.
I wonder how many of you have made this change and the challenges that you’ve come across or surprises/lessons you’ve learned. It’s something I think about all the time. The ability to be free of the cost and shackles of the cable TV empire and help start the movement to “Internet TV” is something I want to be a part of.
However, I still think Cuban makes some great points in this debate he had with the founder of Boxee. Mainly, we the people might want this change to occur but creating the content is going to be the tricky part. Also, I beat Avner (Boxee founder) in ping pong once. That has to figure in here somewhere ;)
But this is a good trend to help with that. Kaw-kaw, kaw-kaw…inside joke. Anyone?
And this is a great start to disrupting the cable companies. Please, please, please bring this to Atlanta, Google.
Who else has tried this and what have you learned?
