Moving Out, and Moving On. Relocating is Expensive Enough, why Sign Up for an Unnecessary Cable TV Bill?
How Moving Day is Perfectly Aligned with Cord Cutting

Now Spanish Speaking Cord Cutters have even more Cable TV Alternatives
It’s no secret that the Latino population is one of the fastest growing in the United States. There are approximately 54 million Latino Americans, and that number will only continue to grow over the coming decades.
