Smart TVs are a cord cutter’s dream at CES

roku

While at CES, we saw a lot of amazing smart tech, but what really stood out most for us was the range of Smart TVs for cord cutters from manufacturers old and new. Because they are just as powerful as streaming set top boxes, Smart TVs can be a great option and a possible gateway for cord cutting newbies.

This week, we take a look at the two hottest categories for Smart TVs in 2016.

The holidays are almost here, and for many people that means entertaining in their home. Televisions have become a focal point in many homes, and when you’re entertaining guests, they are often powered off.

Gizmodo gives props to startup ISPs

Gizmodo wants you to know about the 6 Best Things That Happened to the Internet This Year and we’re thrilled to be featured in one of them!

While calling out independent ISPs in general, they ran our On Location fiber lighting video to illustrate the point. Though the video was shot in Westminster, MD, the point absolutely applies here, too. They also referenced an article they published earlier this year, which talked a bit about Ting’s efforts toward building a better Internet.

Gizmodo says, “for once, it feels like the little guys have a chance.”

And on that, we’ll agree to agree.

College football for cord cutters

Previously, college football fans who cut the cord were left with only two legal options to watch bowl games: go to a friend’s house to watch the game, or agree to a 2-year contract with cable TV. At an average cost of $100 per month, the latter was an expensive way to watch just a few weeks of football.

Although there were a few cord cutters whose ISP gave them access to ESPN 3 with a sky cam or other feed, the vast majority of cord cutters were left out in the cold when it came to watching the Bowl Season. Similarly, even though using an antenna allowed cord cutters to watch HD sports for free over the air from networks like ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC, none of them offered access to all of the bowl games.

Now, things are very different.

Over the weekend, Riverside Village, a new neighborhood just off of Route 20 North, invited the public to visit some of their brand new homes. These are no ordinary homes because, as you may have guessed, they have been lit up with Ting’s crazy fast fiber Internet. Guests who visit the model homes can experience the speed for themselves and marvel over the benefits of accessing their Internet, phone and TV all via high-speed fiber Internet.

Volunteering for Habitat for Humanity

Last Wednesday, Ting joined up with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville to prepare Burnet Commons homes for their final inspections. We specifically requested to work on the Burnet Commons III (BCIII) project because Ting, in partnership with Southern Development, will be bringing crazy fast fiber Internet to this new neighborhood. With this third phase of development, BCIII will consist of 18 Habitat and 26 Southern Development homes. Additionally, Ting will be donating the $399 installation fee for all 18 Habitat homes.
