Ready to stream? Now is the perfect time to cut the cord

If you’ve been hesitating to cut the cord and start streaming, now’s the time to jump in. Deals from streaming services such as DIRECTV NOW, YouTube TV, Hulu and Amazon Prime, in addition to stable Internet service from providers like us, means it’s the perfect time to make the switch.

“Cutting the cord,” the process of getting rid of traditional cable TV services and switching to watching television by streaming it via the Internet, is a concept that has existed for some time. However, for people who live in rural areas where internet services were either too slow or not available at all, cutting the cord has been out of reach. Until now.

Internet service providers, like us, who offer fast and reliable internet connections for homes and businesses in rural areas, have made it possible for a great number of people to finally move forward with their cost-cutting dreams.

If your cable bills just keep climbing, and you feel ready to try out this streaming thing everyone’s talking about, deals from leading streaming services make it a great time to jump in. For instance, DIRECTV NOW is offering a special promotion offering a free Apple TV 4K to new subscribers who sign up and prepay for three months of their service. Their service plans range from $35 to $70 per month, depending on how many channels you want. And they offer access to premier cable channels such as HBO that can be added on for very low rates as well.

Compare those numbers to your current cable bills and you can see the attraction most people have for cutting the cord and switching to streaming. And if you feel like you’re the last one cutting the cord, you’re not. Check out this fun video where a fellow first-time cord-cutter shares his experiences.

Here at Softcom, we provide high-speed internet access to communities throughout Sacramento and San Joaquin Counties that support high-bandwidth applications, no matter how remote your home or place of business may be.
