We cut the cord once for about a year. We had sling, Netflix, wife got hbo, we have amazon prime....I..gave in and got cable back again and ditched the sling. The cable was just simpler to navigate.

All I need is Fox News 80% of the time. Sling now has an a la cart for many channels, but Fox News seems to be the issue. Any ideas?

You about covered the usuals for cord cutting. I cut the cord 6 years ago and just do Netflix. I get all my news from the internet, Drudge, Fox, Daily Mail, Reuters, AP and a few others. Rather read about it than listen to some overpaid talking head that doesn't know their a$$ from their elbow. My guess is when you add up all your subscriptions plus internet bill you were about the same price as cable? I believe Dish owns Sling so they get their cut either way. Agreed to navigate none cable TV options can be tiresome.

We do Netflix, PLAYSTATION VUE for the cable channel fix, and Amazon prime. You can get Fox on the basic VUE package.

We cut the cord about 5 years ago. Took all the money I was spending monthly and funneled it into an IRA. If I showed you the IRA balance after just 5 years, you wouldn’t need any more motivation for cutting the cord. We got Netflix 2 months ago and I honestly have not even watched anything on it yet but my kids love it.

I can't cut the cord. It's the only way I can get Kentucky Basketball and I can't live without it.

Heck, when BB season is over I use Netflix more nights than I do Dish.

No pro ball here, zero.

If you're going to cut the cord, then just cut the cord and be done with it.

Check YouTube tv. $35/month as well and in the Nashville area that includes the 4 major network broadcasts, Fox news and tons of sports channels. Unlimited dvr also. I'm strongly considering it after the first of the year.

Interesting....never even heard of it.

Great idea. Just not available in Knoxville.....like a college football coach.
