Cut the cord. I’m sure you’ve heard this reference before. It’s been used to reference all sorts of things, but when I say it I mean cut the cable cord. Have you looked at your cable bill recently? I mean really looked at it?
The last time we had cable it was $92 per month and we had 120 channels. At least half of those were infomercial channels where the salesperson was selling some newfound itch cream or bad breath cure. You know what I’m talking about! Chances are you are in the same boat.
There isn’t a point to maintaining that cable package if it isn’t being utilized. I bet you don’t buy groceries then bring them home and throw them away do you? No, I didn’t think so.
There are so many other options for television these days there is no reason to stick with a high priced cable package that forces you to pay for infomercial channels. If I had to guess I would say that millennials are changing the way we watch TV and it’s been the best thing since sliced cheese.

Cutting The Cord
That’s why we cut the cord and signed up for Sling TV. It had AMC which was vital for my husband’s love for The Walking Dead.
With Sling TV you get you get the best of TV while not getting locked into a nasty contract with price increases every year.
You can choose from Sling Orange and Sling Blue.
Sling Orange is $20 per month and you get 30 channels.
Some of those include:
Then there is Sling Blue for $25 per month and you get 45 channels.
You get all of the above-mentioned channels as well as these:
- Nat GEO
- National Geographic
When Sling TV first start 2 years ago they had one package option for $20 per month and limited add-ons. They didn’t offer many extras at the time. However, in the last year, they’ve added some amazing extras.
A few of those extras include:
- Cloud DVR for $5 extra (hello 50 hours of recorded TV!)
OR you can choose the 4 extras package for $10 more per month and get 4 extras for the price of 2! Those include Kids, Comedy, News & Lifestyle extras all for $10 per month.
They have seriously changed the game when it comes to watching TV and not requiring you to sign your life away for 2 years.
How Do I Watch Sling TV
Well, I’m so glad you asked! You can watch Sling TV on so many devices now it’s kind of mind-blowing. You can find the full list here but the following are some of the heavy hitters that everyone knows about:
- Apple TV
- Amazon Fire TV
- Xbox One
We bought a Roku to watch Sling TV on and we have loved it. It’s so small we’ve even packed it away in our carry-on for road trips so when we get where we are going we can just plug it in and as long as we have the internet then we have TV!
Plus if you sign up for Sling TV they will give you 50% off of a Roku 3 or Amazon Fire TV! Check it out here.
What If I Hate Sling TV
Well, you can cancel anytime during your service and they will let you continue to watch their service until your payment date is due. Then it will just expire. Wonderful, right?
When we cut the cord it was an easy decision to make. Especially since we saved over $800 per year & we still got to watch amazing TV!
