How to Cut Cable

In this article we will help you figure out how to cut your cable using the SkystreamX Android TV Box. While cutting your cable and looking for ways to get free cable or free TV might seem intimidating, it is really very simple and we are going to show you how. The first thing you need to figure out if you need to cut your cable. So let’s start off with a few questions to see if you qualify as a candidate to cut your cable. Do you like giving $80+ a month to your cable provider? Do you have no use for an extra $1,000 a year? Are you happy with your current cable company’s customer service? Do you enjoy being nickel and dimed each month for things like DVR service, HD packages, Premium channels and cable box rental fees? Do you enjoy paying extra for on demand movies? If you answered no to any of the questions listed above then you are a prime candidate for someone who is ready to cut their cable. So let’s look at some of the reasons you want to cut your cable and get free TV, free movies and free cable.

Cost Let’s face it. Times have been tough in the United States and all around the world for the past years. Companies aren’t hiring and aren’t giving raises like they used to. If you’re like most people your budget has been stretched a little thin lately with higher costs and lower pay. You may have started cutting coupons and looking for other ways to save money each month. But you have been scared to cut your cable off because you are used to it and are worried that if you switch to a service like Netflix or Hulu you will get limited content. So you have just continued to pay the ridiculous cost that your cable provider charges you each month. Convenience Let’s face it. You have become complacent with you cable provider. You give them $80+ each month for TV and they give you the convenience of turning on your TV and scrolling through there guide to find something to watch. Maybe you feel like they value your business and…
