Will 2024 be the year to cut the cable TV cord?

Posted By on December 10, 2023

It has been a few years since we entertained the idea of “cutting the cord” when it comes to cable TV. I’m once again inching closer as Altafiber (acquired Cincinnati Bell and Fioptics) has bumped up prices and forced an equipment update on us. It is both good and bad … since I’m not really ready for change.

New TiVo Cloudbased remote

We have moved from a hardware based whole-house DVR with tons of storage that we’ve used for years … to a cloud-based TiVo system (love TiVo systems years ago). After the switch, I can say it is an improvement … so that does half justify the bump up in cost. That said, I’m not sure we really need cable TV, but the convenience is nice?

EDIT: Altafiber “enticed me” with lowering my bill for another 12 Laughing Emojimonths to the 2023 rates … so we’ll stay and pay … and pretend to be happy another year.
