How to save money as a cord cutter

Saving money

Three ways to save money as a cord cutter

Recently, there have been new rumblings and rumors on the Internet that cord cutting doesn’t really save you money. This is an old misconception that has been around since people first began ditching cable TV.

Now, critics are trying a new tactic. Instead of denying cable fees have become exorbitant, they purport that cord cutting is equally expensive because of the subscription fees for streaming services. Not true. With a little self-control, cord cutting can save you a significant amount of money.   

Another tactic critics use is to claim cord cutting costs are rising. However, a recent report by Park Associates found the average $8 cost of subscription streaming services has remained unchanged for the last three years, and what’s more, 30% of cord cutters don’t subscribe to any streaming services.

So what can you do to save money as a cord cutter? Here are three things.

  1. Swap streaming services you no longer use for new ones.
  2. Don’t subscribe to every service that catches your attention.
  3. Do your research and you will save significant amounts of money while still watching what you want.

Build your own home TV antenna with a paperclip or clothes hanger

tv antenna

A TV antenna is a great way to get a multitude of HD channels including, in many areas, ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC for free. While you can buy an antenna for under $50 at stores such as Walmart or Target, you can also build your own antenna with items you likely already have in your house.

Here are two ways to make a cheap and easy antenna for your TV.

One note before we get started: if you have a smart TV you will need to use its menu to scan for channels after you install the antenna. To do this, go to settings on your TV. There you will find a channels menu with an option to scan for local channels. Without this step, your TV will not show all the available channels.
