When I cut the cable cord in 2009, I saved over $100 a month and still got to watch all my shows. Ten years later, my internet video streaming bills are closing in on cable TV-level bills.
What happened was internet streaming is copying over the tired, old cable models. Sure, the delivery technology is different, but to get the most from today’s net-based television shows, you need a streaming device. That’s changing, too, as full-featured streaming gets built into newer TVs with built-in Roku.
