We cut the cord. Finally.

This morning we made it official. We cut the cord. We finally pulled the plug on our cable and ditched Spectrum/Time Warner. This morning a service technician hooked us up to Cincinnati Bell Fioptics in an installation process that was not nearly as simple as I thought it would be. But after watching him work all morning to get us up and running, we’re experiencing Fioptics and it’s so far so good. Everything works just fine. We didn’t really watch our cable all that much. We usually watched Netflix or Hulu (free with Sprint!) or Amazon Prime Video in the evenings while we also streamed whatever sports were on that evening on a tablet. We’ve also been testing Sling TV for the last couple of weeks and found that Sling has almost everything we watched on cable and then some.

This isn’t a comprehensive review of Sling TV. Just a declaration of independence from Spectrum that feels incredibly liberating. Sling works great through our Amazon Fire TV sticks or our Google Chromecasts. We can also stream all of our channels anywhere we go through our mobile devices. We get all of my soccer and all of Reds games. And we have 50 hours of DVR space. The only downside so far is a lack of local channels. We didn’t really watch local tv at all except for weekend sporting events. And I figure that won’t really be much of a problem until around football season. But there seems to be a pretty easy fix to that problem though with the AirTV Player that is said to integrate seamlessly with Sling TV. We’ll look into adding that option soonish.

The best part of cutting the cord and ditching cable is that we’ll save about $70 a month. You can’t beat that. Getting to say, Bye Felicia to Spectrum isn’t bad either.
