Wink Death, Taxes and Rising Cord Cut Prices

Hi All: I ran across an interesting article linked below. It offers good advice regarding cord cutting verses cable/satellite prices. Look before you leap as it stands now with increased cord cutting prices.

However, for me they will have to pry my OTA antennas from my cold, dead fingers before I give them up! One time initial cost and no monthly fees to boot!!

I question the moniker "cord cutting" when people use it to mean cutting your cable cord and using an internet connection instead for TV. In many cases, it's over the same piece of coax, no?

To me true "cord cutters" are using antennas only, which have ZERO monthly fees.

Part, if not all, of the problem with rising "subscription"
television pricing is that most people refuse to give up
their favorite program(s) or channels. I use the word
"subscription" to include satellite, cable and paid streaming.
Are there programs and channels I would like to have,
SURE, you bet! I refuse to pay for any television and
use antennas and free Roku. With the two, I have
hundreds, if not thousands of program options, 24 hours
a day. Pluto Tv, Tubi, Crackle are all good examples of
free streaming options. If they eventually move to
subscription, they will lose me as a viewer!

The cool thing about Pluto is that it is a programming grid of free streaming services. They have no programming rights expense.
