The five biggest cord cutting stories of February, 2017

February was a great month for cord cutters; new services hit the market and we learned more about other services that are already on the market. Here are our top five biggest cord cutting stories of February, 2017.

YouTube TV

Recently, YouTube announced a new service, which delivers live TV from popular television channels to paying customers through YouTube. The service will be called YouTube TV but will not launch for a few months. Also, we do not know at this time which markets will get live local channels.

For $35 a month, starting sometime this spring, subscribers to YouTube TV will be able to watch the top four broadcast networks — ABC, NBC, Fox, and CBS — as well as 35 or so of their affiliated cable channels including ESPN, Disney Channel, MSNBC, National Geographic, and Fox News. Premium channels like Showtime can be added for an additional fee.

Subscribers will receive a DVR to record shows and unlimited storage space in the cloud. The only catch is that shows are automatically deleted after nine months.

YouTube TV subscribers will be able to watch YouTube TV on smartphones, tablets and laptop computers. The mobile apps are designed to easily “cast” from smartphones to larger screens, perhaps even (for we olds) actual TV sets. Sadly, the press release did not list whether it could be used with streaming players like Roku, Fire TV. Yet, since both do allow you to cast YouTube Videos, it is possible that YouTube TV will work on streaming players like the Roku and Fire TV.

Hulu’s new live TV streaming service

Hulu's new live TV streaming service

Hulu has a new live TV streaming service coming and cord cutters should take notice.

Last week, we had the honor to meet with executives from Hulu for a look at their new Hulu Live service. This new service will bring live TV to Hulu’s on-demand services with live channels from companies like CBS, Disney, Fox and more.

We were able to get a full look at the new Hulu Live service and were even able to talk with some of the main people behind it. From what we have seen, Hulu Live is something that will make cord cutters who use other services take note. It will also cause cable subscribers to give cord cutting a second look.

So why were we so impressed with Hulu Live? In short, Hulu has taken great care to re-think how TV should be offered and how to give cord cutters access to their content. From the bottom up, Hulu Live is something new — and better — than what you get with your old cable TV provider.

Here are a few reasons Hulu Live stood out.
