cutting the cord

shortly i will be cutting the cord. good bye directv.

we now watch the majority of our television via Netflix, Amazon and sometimes Hulu. what little we do watch that isn’t available the antenna on our roof we’ll save money buying them than paying for directv. even after buying 2 TiVo’s AND a slingbox (to throw on my mom’s tv just in case I need to watch Chris Hayes or a Twins game) we’ll still come out ahead on the money side.

the slingbox seems like a bit of a cop out but we had decided to do this prior to the boston bombings. it was then i realized that the next time something was happening in the world i wouldn’t be able to get my 24hr news fix. so hello slingbox.
