So, you’d rather binge watch the new season of Orange Is The New Black on Netflix than tune into the premiere of the new summer season of America’s Got Talent? Not to worry, you’re not alone.
Millennials everywhere are “cutting the cord” to cable subscriptions, hoping to save a little extra cash. The Simple Dollar explains, “Cord cutters are people – mostly young people – who cancel a traditional cable package in favor of services like Netflix, Hulu, and others that stream over the Internet.”
And, everyone seems to be doing it. “One in four millennials doesn’t subscribe to cable, and 11% of them never have,” says The Simple Dollar.
So, whether you’ve clicked “yes” for the fifth time today when Netflix asks if you’re still watching, or are feeling that sense of accomplishment as you finish a full TV season on Hulu in 24 hours, know that you’re not the only one! There are plenty of other streaming junkies doing the same thing, trying to save some money.
If you haven’t yet, will you cancel your cable now?
