You need to talk to your broadband ISP and every once in awhile — you may be due a free broadband upgrade!
As newly minted cord cutter, Sean Gallagher discovered, it pays to keep a close eye on your cable provider — you may be due free broadband upgrade.

I don't think it's going away any time soon, though it is definitely getting a big deemphasis. I imagine we still have a couple more years

I've never dealt with Comcast.But I'd say to +Brian Brushwood​​ and +Tom Merritt​​ . NOW YOU CAN SAY MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! :)

Comcast admits cord-cutting is here to stay.

It may be, but I'm still of the opinion that they're thinking they'll 'control' streaming in the mobile market and use key channels to keep cable in the home; thus preserving their dual stream of income (and possibly even a pipe dream of somehow creating a third revenue stream out of charging for streaming on top of internet connectivity).

Despite a slowdown in subscriber growth, the Internet is still propelling Comcast. The country's largest cable company added 180,000 Internet customers in the April-June quarter, the smallest gain in at least two years.

It looks like that phone call I made a few days ago to cut my cable TV service was just in my imagination. According to this article anyway.
Television executives argue the threat of cord-cutting has been greatly exaggerated.

Yes, please tell us more about cord-cutting being a myth and how in-demand your video service is, now that Comcast broadband users now officially outnumber cable subscribers: http://consumerist.com/2015/07/23/comcasts-broadband-customers-officially-outnumber-its-cable-subscribers/

Saying that cord cutting is overblown is like saying that human technology doesn't contribute to climate change.
Cord-cutting’s impact on ESPN has attracted a lot of attention over the past few weeks. With a contrarian opinion, Allen Kenney asserts it’s a bit overblown.  If you’ve been following the news lately, you’ve probably read a story or two about the cable industry that goes something like this: A staggeringly large number of U.S. households …

To be clear. I don't hate ESPN. But this an example of why arguing to pay by the channel for cable does not work out for the consumer or cable channels.

Lower viewed channels rely on higher viewed channels to survive. If people could only pay by the channel, lower viewed channels would go out of business as their revenue stream would disappear as not enough people would ever pay for all the channels individually.

I am a cord cutter. But like +Brian Brushwood​, I will not argue for paying ala carte for cable as it will not save consumers money.

Responding to the threat of online streamers hollowing out its customer base, Comcast Corp. announced on Monday that it will launch a $15-a-month "skinny bundle" of online streamed entertainment and broadcast TV networks.

You Can Now Add Showtime to Your Hulu Subscription for $9. Not Bad!

http://gizmodo.com/you-can-now-add-showtime-to-your-hulu-subscription-for-1713391677
The a la carte TV options are expanding. If you’re a Hulu subscriber paying $8 per month, you can add Showtime for another $9 now, which is cheaper than Showtime’s recently announced $11 standalone option.

+Jason Muffenbier Yeah, that stinks. But Ive gotten use to it. Without too many options to see current TV, its what I got! Still sounds decent on my system even on 2 channel.

FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler has another good idea!
 
#TV #FCC #MVPD If you love cord cutting, you should be for MVPD classification!
The FCC plans to use MVPD classification to make all cable, satellite and OTT streaming providers play by the same rules and that will drive innovation

+Chris Eckeard Yes, every day with Wheeler seems to be a revelation! I wish he had quashed the AT&T/Dish deal, but that was hardly the worst thing that could have happened. The Tittle II and, now, proposed MVPD reclassification are both very welcome.

Seems likes a natural step from Can I Stream It. Thoughts?
iOS/Android: When cable television first got so unwieldy it was hard to know what was on, we invented the TV guide to make sense of it all. Now that streaming services are so huge, it’s hard to know what’s new. JustWatch helps cut through the noise.

Don’t let your Old TV company push you around. Switch to Sling and Take Back TV.

Just one more after-thought. Direct TV charges for every set top box a home or apartment uses.

While everyone is directing attention at Dish internet television service, most seem to forget Dish traditional satellite service.

Their first set top box is a dual tuner. The second remote is UHF and works anywhere in the home.

It's something to consider if your renting 2 set top boxes from Direct TV.

It would be a 2 year commitment to sign up for Dish satellite and maybe Sling TV will come up with a dual stream service.But it's something to consider if your not subscribing to the NFL ticket with Direct TV and wish to cut back on expenses.

C'mon Google Fiber and deliver us from these Cable companies!
I can't help but wondering what the cap will be - and the overage charges.
I can see Comcast seeing it as a golden goose... sure you can download a movie in seconds...  and hit your cap that much sooner, too...

Yes, boys and girls, cord cutting is very much a thing — even Comcast admits it. Yet, their streaming play, Comcast Stream, is remarkably tone deaf

Comcast was spoiled when cable internet developed a second unexpected windfall stream of revenue for them.  Comcast is a solid business model of a business perpetually staying three steps behind the rest of the world.  They're a monopoly, they don't have to keep up.

They 'get' streaming and cord cutting; they're not stupid.

They are, however, simply greedy and want their cake and eat it, too... or in this case provide entertainment via streaming in the vain belief they can sew up the mobile streaming market while at the same time forcing customers to keep cable on in their homes.

Cutting edge thinking in 2004...

Streaming video will make more money than cable TV by 2017

In a study from IAB, it is estimated that digital media like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Instant will make more money than cable TV by 2017. This is a dramatic shift from 2013 when cable television made $75 billion and digital media only $43 billion. There was also a report from eMarketer that 26% of all calls to cable companies for new service ask for Internet-only service. According to advertising technology company Marchex of those who want Internet-only service about 60% end up with just Internet. So, cable companies are still doing great keeping people in the fold.

Sadly, I'm in the Comcast monopoly, and their first steps have been in placing caps on internet and slowdowns... which of course are denied but cannot be explained as to why they always happen in the last week of the month.  It's obviously geared towards keeping the majority of entertainment in cable, imho

If you're a fan of South Korean Anime, then you may like Pororo The Little Penguin, Tayo The Little Bus and Chiro.

Pororo is probably the most famous of the trio of programs. Pororo follows the exploits of the little penguin and his friends. Tayo and Chiro are also from the same South Korean production company. Stories are short and entertaining while music Is catchy. Great for kids of all ages.

The full seasons of Pororo, Tayo and Chiro are available on Hulu on variety of devices. Channels with content are also available for free on YouTube Kids App for iOS and Android.
