I was a cordcutter way before the term was even was coined. I haven’t had cable since the late 90s. I recently tried Sling and then moved to DirectTV over the last couple of years and recently decided after 5-6 months to cancel DirectTV. I only entertained the services because of the sports gap that local and cable channels create for some of the games I want to watch. It was nice at first but after a while started to wonder what I was paying for again. DirectTV had a ton of channels I could care less about and intermingled channels I had to pay for so it was irritating to scroll through. I know there is a favorites function but you had navigate to get there so it was definitely being discouraged. In the end it felt just like cable where it is a waste of money as I was paying for nothing I really wanted to watch. In fact probably ended up being more then just adding cable to my current ISP. I just saved $75/mnth and have not looked back after the 1st 3 weeks.
