The NY Times has a short article talking about cutting the cord. No, not about my blog; about what my blog is about. Living life without cable. I like that the survey they talk about used Netflix as a focal point. It’s so true. A lot of what we watch involves Netflix’s watch instantly content. I always look forward to finding new content and refreshing our queue with new things to watch.
Check it out. “When the Diffusion Group surveyed Netflix members in 2010, they found that 16 percent of customers were planning to downgrade or cancel their cable television service.” It’s now 2011. Imagine what that number has jumped to! We originally cut the cord for economic reasons. And we still keep it that way for pretty much the same reason – we save a lot! But we also realized we don’t need cable. Channel flipping is a huge waste of time. We definitely love picking one thing at a time and watching it. The discussion goes something like “what do you want to watch tonight?” “Let’s do a movie” or “Want to continue watching Parenthood?” We’re not tied to a broadcast schedule.
