Cost Comparison: Old-fashioned Cable TV vs. Streaming

It’s true that you get what you pay for most of the time. But is that always what you want?

With old-fashioned cable TV, you get hundreds of channels. More channels than you could ever watch. Twenty years ago, showing off your never-ending lineup of channels was a big deal. But now? Not so much.

You see – traditional cable doesn’t give you all those channels for free. You pay (a lot) for them. In fact, you keep paying more for them as rates continue to rise due to increased programming costs (traditional cable companies raise rates as much as twice per year). And why? If you’re not into home improvement, baseball, professional wrestling or true crime, why pay for channels that specialize in that type of programming?

With streaming, there’s a better way. You’re able to pay for the channels you actually WANT to watch – not the ones that come in a one-size-fits-all package. That saves you money and gives you a better experience.

Plus, as the cost of programming increases, you can bet that the cost to watch that programming will increase as well. Having hundreds of channels you never watch can make your bill spike before you know it.

If you’re ready to cut the cable and move to streaming, Point Broadband has a tool to help you figure out which service is right for you. You can even sign up for multiple services and STILL pay less than you’re paying for old-fashioned cable.

With streaming, you get what you WANT to pay for.
