a few weeks ago i wrote this blog called
cut the cord
in which i described how we would cut the cord
from cable and satellite tv

i had wanted to do this for a long time
was hampered by living in a rural area
dependent on satellite for our tv service

now that we are in a cable town
i cut the cord

i read online and in consumer reports on how to do it
clip with the scissors i went

we got an antenna
to me it looks like one of those stingrays with a long
white cord tail
it picked up all our local stations except
no nbc

so on nbc are two of my favorite shows
the voice and americas got talent
now thats a problem

so on to hula live tv
yep theres nbc
click on it
nope its not live
you can get those shows sort of on delay
real delay like a few days

i like to watch nbc nightly news with lester holt for
my news along with other sources like npr and pbs
nope no lester either
not live anyway
yep thats a problem

the feed from the local stations were sketchy frequently
mainly because we are situated against the mountains and
the beach
nice place to be situated
but not good for free tv reception

some  of my pleasures in life are
my tv
my dvr

so my our priority ok me was
certain shows

half of those werent being met

i we i mean me
decided to sort of do a splice of the cord
only sort of spice it a little

we added netflix
a world that we have been missing from country living
for years
we added amazon prime
free shipping plus access to a lot of tv and movies
some original
i picked a cost effective cable tv plan that captures those
shows that we were missing
added dvr

although thats not what i we i mean me
wanted to do
its close enough to sort of feel like we are beating
the cable system
our cost is about what we would be paying had we not
spliced the cord back

i plan to keep a close eye on hula live tv and sling tv etc
as i know that eventually as they get more coverage
then i we i mean me
can get out those orange scissors again
cut the cord again
all the way through
