Cutting the cable (tv)

Has anyone switched from using cable to streaming online? Comparing the costs, is it even worth bothering?

If your looking for streaming TV from the USA ....

Arguing that you don't care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don't care about free speech because you have nothing to say.

I do only watch streaming TV from Germany, Italy and the USA. Better choice, more series available, and you can watch a complete season whenever you want to in their original language.

Internet speed sometimes could be an issue, in this case I download and can watch without hiccups.

If you want ad free watching and a wider choice $10 a month does not seem expensive.
