Hello Fellow Cord Cutters!

I recently got an e-mail from Netflix touting all the content available for kids on their service.  SInce I'm the parent of small children, they are preaching the choir as Netflix, Hulu and SlingTV get heavy rotation in our household for the kids.

Here are some things we like to watch with our kids:

Netflix:
Dreamworks' The Adventures of Puss in Boots has new episodes released last week.  If you're a fan of Shrek or Puss in Boots, then you may like this Netflix Original Series.

Hulu:
Doozers is Hulu Original Series from Jim Henson productions.  The series features of the hard-working and industrious Doozers.

Disney Junior:
Live and on-demand content is available for Disney Junior / XD / Channel with SlingTV Kids Package.  My daughter likes Sofia The First and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.

Vipo - The Flying Dog:
This show is available for free as one of Roku's Streaming Channels.  They are supported by ads but they don't seem to have too many.

What are some selections that you and your kids are watching?

Over the air picking up.

There are now more than 12.3 million homes that depend solely on over-the-air broadcasting for their live TV viewing, a net gain of 1 million over the last year, according to audience measurement service Nielsen.
The cable TV industry is setting its sights on consumers who are shunning their business.

Get more internet for less? It's possible!
After seeing my broadband advertising lower prices, I decided to compare my bill with their current offerings — surprise, I was due a "free" upgrade!

Thought I'd share as the "Framerate Chicken Challenge" Community is just a spam depot now a days.

I've re-cut my cable service after close to 3 months of service with Charter Communications. I didn't re-cancel out of anger and possibly not to save money. I did so as my work schedule has not really allowed me to enjoy the cable service and picture quality just was not as good as I was accustomed to with Over the Air content on my 60" Plasma television.

My phone call to cancel cable service and retain internet service only took just 9 minutes and 20 seconds and their was no resistance on Charter's part to allow me to do so. I was surprised that the 60 mbps connection I started with the bundle is their slowest speed of internet as of 2015, so I will not suffer a internet slow down. As I wasn't under contract, I was free to cancel cable service at any time and I chose to do so today.

As a Cordkiller, I like to watch what I want,where I want, on whatever device I want. Unfortunately Charter has not negotiated the streaming rights to Comedy Central,A&E, and History Channel to use their streaming sights on whatever device I want. Maybe in the future that will change. But not being able to use those streaming sights with my cable service was a huge turn off to me and contributed to me cancelling my cable service.

Having one free live news choice is a big improvement.
If you are a cord cutter, your free streamed live news your choices are relatively few. In fact, if you live in the US, there is one free live option, CBSN

+Daniel Luck  You should have a look at Channel Pear -- it will surely run afoul of the lawyers, sooner or later. In the meantime, Channel Pear rocks.

Woody Allen fans may be looking forward to his new original series on Amazon, but the famed director is not happy he agreed to do it.

So I went and saw Mad Max Fury Road. Although it is perhaps the greatest in the franchise, the 25 minutes of adds from Marcus theater and a lint ball floating in front of the projector lense did hinder my enjoyment.

My questions to the community, Do you still go to the theater to see first run films? Do you put up with the previews and adds before the film? Or do you go elsewhere where their aren't as many adds or at all?

It costs over 40$ for the kids, wife and I to go see a film. Then we see ads etc... it's not worth it. The movie will be available soon enough to rent or buy online. Rent: 2-6$ buy: 20$/give or take. Both, really inexpensive options to the theater.
I know there are people that say, "The big screen!","the sound!" and "Get out of the house!"... and I say, "Beer, food, smoking (ECig) and no ads!". I am not saying my way is best for anyone, but it is the best movie viewing experience for me.

The exception is when we take the kids to a Disney-esque movie. once every 6 months or so.

So, the charter technician showed up to disconnect my cable. I had thought with their digital encryption on all channels starting last year,no one needed to do this anymore.

Just out of curiosity, how hard would it be to de-scramble cable tv without their converter box? Not that I had a desire to do so. I would only ask at a Charter share holder meeting why employees still had to do this in 2015 and beyond?

+Stephen Syputa Your right Stephen in the fact cable just feels like an inferior product compaired to all the other options available today.

But Charter still allows the use of cable cards.Just the use of their on demand service will not work with it.

How to fix Google+.

(Read my column: http://goo.gl/TFqqXy )

Through much of its existence, Google's social network has often been criticized as a "ghost town" that's "dead" and about to be shut down. The criticisms always come from non-users.

Google+ fans always chime in to rebut those criticisms, often flooding the story or post with disagreement. With all those passionate users, how can it be a ghost town?

The controversy about Google+ engagement never seems to end.

But whatever the current level of activity on Google+ is, it could be vastly higher if Google itself wasn't holding back users by suppressing public posts, removing comments, hiding amazing content and failing to fully use the technology it has already developed.

Here are 10 ways Google could radically crank up the engagement on Google+:

Your ISP could be the reason your shows keep buffering.
What broadband speed are you paying for and what speed is your Internet Service Provider (ISP) actually giving you? Infamously, broadband ISPs, like Comcast and Time Warner, are best known for slow speeds and crap customer service. Of course, it’s ...

With the recent re-branding of Hulu Plus simply as Hulu, I got to thinking about what subscription services for streaming.

I currently use the following:
Netflix:  Daredevil, Transformers Prime, Mako Mermaids
Hulu Plus:  The Last Ship, Gotham, Last Man on Earth, Weird Loners, Hot in Cleveland
Sling TV:  AMC (Walking Dead), ESPN (Sports Center), H2 (Ancient Aliens), Disney Junior (Most Kids Programs), Disney XD (Star Wars Rebels), BabyTV (Most Kids Programs).

What Streaming Service are you using and why?

Amazon for prime. Netflix for everything else. I have an antenna and tablo for locals. Sickbeard for everything else.  I won't do hulu due to ads and lack of surround sound.

I am apart of Neilsen Digital Voice Program, Signed up, requires you to download the Neilsen application and browser extension and then Neilsen can track your online usage, may include Internet Streaming sites. They occasionally send you Surveys to fill out and have an incentive, a contest to win a monthly money amount.

My feelings exactly
Yes, this really is an invitation from a cable company for you to pay for an online service that plays shows that have already appeared on cable.

Give Mint a try, and send me a message for any help whatsoever. In fact, message me anyway when you;re ready to install, there's some good practice you can do on the install that you'll be glad you did.
