Cutting the cord

For months … nay YEARS … my husband and I agonized over whether to “cut the cord” to cable TV and opt instead for streaming.

When we first started thinking about it, many were touting using rabbit ears to get local channels. I couldn’t bring myself to do that. Rabbit ears, in my mind, were unreliable and being a news junkie I couldn’t risk losing my access to local news. Streaming services at that time were few — Netflix and Hulu. But I couldn’t face living on movies and old series. So we waited. And talked. And waited.
