Do you still need cable? | The Tylt
A new streaming service seems to pop up every day, so it's a wonder that folks are still paying for cable. Streaming services like Hulu, Netflix and Philo have changed the way we consume our favorite shows. Netflix has us hooked on binging, and Philo allows viewers to catch some of their favorites in real-time. Even so, some say these services don't hold a candle to good, old-fashioned cable. Do you still need cable?
Do you still need cable?
There are a few reasons cable-lovers refuse to pull the plug. Streaming services are great, until your internet is down and you are left with the "attempting to reconnect" notification during the "Game of Thrones" finale. And sports-lovers may also be at a disadvantage, considering most streaming services struggle with the ability to offer live sports coverage.
If you are looking to save coins, cutting the cord seems like an obvious choice. Netflix and Hulu have you covered on the movie front while services like Philo allow you to watch live TV for only $20 a month. This way, you don't have to wait until the next day for that "Real Housewives" finale!
