A cord cutter’s look at the Consumer Electronics Show 2017

Consumer Electronics Show

The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is one of the biggest tech trade shows in the world, with over 160,000 people descending on Las Vegas every January to get a look at what will be new, hot, and exciting this year.

For tech lovers, the show is like Disneyland, Cedar Point, Sea World and Busch Gardens all rolled into one giant event.

We were lucky enough to be in attendance this year and we were able to meet with a wide range of representatives from companies like Sling TV, Mohu Antennas, NewsOn, Tablo and many others.

We’re tremendously excited about the following products appearing at CES this year that are specifically for cord cutters.

Showcasing some of our favorite Ting customer stories, whether from an individual, a family, a tech-head or a retiree.

Anissa S lives in Arizona and has been a Ting customer for almost a year, using a Nexus 5X as her daily driver.

Her Ting cell phone bill is significantly cheaper compared to what she was paying with one of the Big Four wireless providers. Anissa realized that by switching to a smaller carrier, she could keep the great nationwide network coverage she needed while receiving a much better overall experience.

“I was using Sprint for the last 13 years and while I liked the service coverage, I didn’t like their plan prices and they did not have great customer service. For my usage, Ting was about 75% cheaper than what I was paying with Sprint.”

Streaming international TV is the way to go

Do you love watching international TV? Are you a fan of British TV, or are you wishing you had access to your home TV online while abroad? In the past, accessing international TV shows meant waiting for them to come out on DVD, or paying for very expensive add-on packages from your cable company — just to get a couple of channels.

Now, fans of international TV have a huge lineup of streaming options for watching their favorite TV shows live, or even on demand.

To assist you, we’ve put together a short guide on watching popular international programming and sports while you’re in the United States.
