FYI: My Why ~ Roku Devices

In February, 2019, I "cut the cord" by dropping my cable TV subscription and began using an Internet streaming device.
  • All TV broadcasts use digital signals, anyway
  • Video quality is the same whether decoded  by a cable box or a streaming device
  • Streaming devices are available from familiar names 
    • Roku (stick, premier)
    • Amazon (Fire: stick & cube))
    • Google (Chromecast)
    • Apple TV 
  • They all have HDMI connections/cables

FYI: I Dropped Cable TV ~ AKA "Cutting the cord"

Here is my story about dropping Spectrum Cable TV!


I cut the cable but I can still watch more TV than I have time for.

And... I'm saving over $100 per month!!!

Here is what I am now paying:
  • $51/mo for 100mps Internet
    • I have over 50% more Internet speed
    • The hardware (modem/router) is included.
  • $23/mo for Spectrum TV app
    • I have my BayNews9 channel.
    • I have local broadcast stations with no need for an external antenna.
