Cutting the cord may not be for you then I cut the cord when my ex and I split 4 years ago and I moved into my own place. I don't really watch much TV – there are a few shows I make a point to watch and other than that, it's background while I'm doing other stuff around the house. I'll rent a newer movie once or twice a month. I have a Hulu subscription for $7.99 per month. I've got an HD antenna that gets me local channels for news (and Patriots games!). Someone special in my life has been generous enough to add me as a "family member" on his YouTube TV subscription so I have some DVR capability for other shows and movies not available on Hulu. When I get a hankering to watch a newer movie, I rent from iTunes or Amazon. I do have Comcast for internet only since I need it for work anyway.
