Although cutting the cord gives you greater freedom and is far less expensive than cable you also lose the comfort of certain services and devices; like the channel guide and DVR.
Even the fiercest of cord cutters have to admit that being able to record live TV is pretty darn convenience. But what most cord cutters are not aware of is that there are a ton of third party DVRs and channel guides on the market that don’t require a cable television subscription.

Flying Under the Radar, Netflix is Producing some of the Best Shows on TV
Whether you know it or not, the face of television is changing. Entertainment has become much more fragmented and decentralized; and the success of a new television is no longer dependent on being placed in a “prime time” spot.

So what I’m going to do for you today is introduce you to some Netflix originals you may have missed the first time and give you a heads up on some great ones that will be coming out this year. Let’s take a look! Continue reading Netflix Originals You May Have Missed … Part I→
Why Cord Cutters and Internet Lovers alike need to Fight for Net Neutrality
An issue in the news recently that I think bears addressing is Net Neutrality. If you’re a little confused about what that term means; don’t feel bad.

Essentially, Net Neutrality is the concept that all information shared over the internet deserves to be treated equally and that no corporation or government has the right to deliberately slow down that data.
