Thinking of ditching your cable provider? Good idea. Right now, every penny counts, and paying for channels you barely watch doesn’t make sense (or, cents!).
We’ve talked about streaming TV is the best option for Ting Internet customers but here are our top three reasons to cancel your cable and switch to streaming TV if you’re still on the fence.
It’s probably cheaper
The average US cable bill is $217.42 per month which is obscene. Streaming services like YouTube TV and Sling TV provide up to 85+ channels, full DVR capability, channel guides and all the cable stuff you love for well under $100 per month. And you won’t be stuck with the contracts or hefty, complex bills that drain your wallet. Pair one of these services with Crazy Fast Fiber Internet® from Ting Internet and you’ve got the very best of both worlds.
With streaming TV, you can add or remove services as needed to save money or accommodate seasonal viewing (maybe you don’t watch a lot of TV over the summer or only want to watch NCAA Football in the fall). You can better determine how and where you spend your money and still be able to watch your favorite shows, movies, and news channels including CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, and more.
The best part? No more promotional rates, hidden fees or price creep, all of which add up over time. Your bills won’t change month to month and you won’t be at the mercy of a cable company.
Freedom of choice
Cable companies love contracts and introductory offers that see your bill jump up after the promotional price expires. Upgrading to streaming TV means never signing another long-term contract again. You’ll have the freedom to only sign up for the services and content you want and you can cancel at any time.
You’ll lso have more options that cater to your specific viewing preferences while accessing great local, national and exclusive content from a wide variety of publishers including Netflix, Amazon, Disney, Hulu and many, many more. All you need is a streaming device.
Most streaming services will let you start with free trials to access a wealth of free content. You can try out a bunch of services and see what you want before you pay.
It’s convenient… and reliable!
Watching TV exclusively in the living room or den is a thing of the past. Today, our screens come with us and we can watch videos, movies and yes, TV channels whether we’re cooking in the kitchen, chilling in the back yard or lounging in bed.
With a streaming device, which can be anything from a smart TV to a smartphone, you can access your channels anywhere in the house on whatever device you choose. With a super-fast fiber Internet connection, you won’t even notice others streaming over the same connection at the same time.
No matter your living arrangement, whether living with your partner or multiple family members, there’s bound to numerous viewing habits and preferences in your home. However, with a great streaming service or two, you can watch your favorite local channels, live sports or choose to only stream cartoons, documentaries and shows. Or all of it at once, on any device you choose anywhere in the house!
And if you’re streaming with Ting Crazy Fast Fiber Internet®, you’ll be watching over a reliable connection, completely uninterrupted. If you’re ready to switch over to streaming TV, we’ve got the next steps outlined for you and even put together a technical guide to get you started.
