    Default Who has cut the cable cord ? Is it worth it?

    Thinking of ditching DirecTV for a Roku and an antenna. Who else has done this and is it worth it? And who has NHL game center ? How does thathat Work?

    We have no cable/satellite.. any of that, we use boxee box and love it, we also have a digital antenna we use to get all the local stations HD. We don't do NHL game center, but we do uh.. find the games to watch.. Not the best quality, but at least we still get to watch.

    I have thought of it. But it would include a android box with xbmchub. Have it on my galaxy tab and love it.

    We cut the cable but have xfinity for internets. Promo deal came up with super basic cable and internet for cheaper than our internet so we went back. Turned out to be a good thing our area doesn't get local channels without cable (we get only the local channels and discovery. weird package).

    Anyhow between netflix and amazon prime we are covered for everything we need. Been this way for 2 years. Our promo ran out and they are still charging us the same so we aren't messing with it.

    I do miss some espn content, and i have a friend who helps me out with nbcsports live. Otherwise you find that other things fill the time.

    I have thought about cutting the cord but can't do it until my contract is up in August. I can't think of anything I really need to watch with the exception of the Kings. If anything, I will reduce to a lower priced package if I don't cut the cord.

    There are a couple of guys that talk about cutting the cord on their podcast. They have been doing it for a couple of years but recently broke off on their own so that is why it is episode one. It may be of interest to you.

    I would absolutely cut cable if it wasn't for sports. If it wasn't for blackout rules, I would definitely just buy gamecenter and watch all my "tv" online.

    I cut the cord a few months after the Kings won the Stanley Cup and couldn't be happier about it. Stream everything I want to watch and most of what I watch is available on hulu the next day or at most a few weeks later. Don't have the NHL package so I find other ways or listen to the radio broadcast. There are a few shows I miss but the money savings more than makes up for it and eventually it all shows up on netflix/hulu/whatever. Unless you are a big sports watcher paying for cable isn't worth it, imo.

    I haven't cut the cord and really the only reason is the Kings. If I didn't live in LA, I probably would have by now.
