Have you ever considered cutting the cord, but weren’t sure if you had the strength to do it? You can! It’s easy, will save you money and isn’t that different than not having cable. Our ultimate cord cutting package will get you all the channels you want for a significantly lower price than what you are paying for cable. Follow these steps to become a cord cutter:
Step 1: Cancel Cable
Call your cable provider and tell them you are ready to ditch cable. Once it’s canceled you are officially cable free!
Step 2: Order Sling TV
Sling TV is the top alternative to getting your cable channels “back” without the cost. Sling has three affordable packages to choose from, plus additional add-ons for a few extra dollars every month. Here are your options:
- Sling Orange
- $20 per month
- 25+ channels including ESPN, CNN, HGTV, Lifetime and more
- Sling Blue
- $25 per month
- 40 + channels including Fox, NBC, FX, SyFy and more
- Orange + Blue
- $40 per month
- All the channels in both the orange and blue sling packages
I don’t know about you, but $20 per month for a cable package sounds pretty good to me. All the content is live with many channels having an on demand feature. Love sports? Add 14 sports channels on for an extra $5 per month. Need more news channels? Add seven World News channels to your package for just $5 per month. HBO can also be added to your package for $15 per month. Sling recently added NFL Redzone Network and NBC on demand to the blue package at no cost. Sling is always making improvements and not charging you for them…. how cable should be!
Step 3: Choose your add-ons
Since you have now cut your cable bill in half, if not more, you have some room to play with by adding on additional cord cutting packages. Hulu and Netflix are two of the most popular options. Hulu offers on demand content the day after a show is on live TV. It also has a wide variety of new and old movies to choose from as well as a variety of their own series you can watch. For $7.99 a month you can get Hulu with limited commercials or for $11.99 a month you can have a commercial-free Hulu subscription. Netflix is another great option if you enjoy binge watching TV shows. New seasons of shows are always added to their mix of movies, documentaries and Netflix Original Series. For $9.99 a month Netflix can be yours.
Step 4: Enjoy!
Now it is time to enjoy all the TV you want at a low price. Rounding up, if you choose Sling Orange+Blue, the commercial-free Hulu package and Netflix your new monthly bill is $62. I’m going to take a wild guess and say that’s roughly half of what your current cable bill is. Still too costly? Going with all of the cheapest packages you are still at $38 per month. How is that for the ultimate cord cutter package? Enjoy!
