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?

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.

2017 is going to be an exciting year for cord cutters

2016 was a great year for cord cutters. PlayStation Vue went national, Netflix went worldwide, DirecTV jumped on the cord-cutting movement, and hundreds of other services and announcements made their appearance in 2016.

Traveling for the holidays?

If you are anything like my family, you will be traveling for the holidays and if you are like my family, you still want access to shows and movies while you’re away from home. Now, traveling as a cord cutter can feel just like being a cord cutter at home.

Here is our guide to taking your cord cutting content with you. From downloading your favorite shows to having the right streaming player for your hotel, we have you covered!

Avoid the trap of trying to make cord cutting look like cable TV

I have been helping people become cord cutters for about three years. From day one, I have heard a lot of talk about how cord cutting is not less expensive than cable TV. I could not disagree more because my family saves over $2,000 a year! Also, studies have shown that, on average, cord cutters save over $1,000 a year.

Often, when I talk with people who say they cannot save money by cord cutting I find they are subscribing to five or more services. For example, one person had a very high package of PlayStation Vue, CBS All Access, Netflix, Hulu, HBO Now and Amazon Prime.

This is a major mistake I often see people make. They try to make cord cutting look just like cable by focusing on the number of channels they get, rather than whether they are getting the shows they want. Cord cutting can be a great way to save money and still watch your content, but you need to look at it differently.

So, here are a few guidelines on how you can avoid the trap of trying to make cord cutting just like cable.
