    this was bad advice. I watched fox news via directv, and it was on all day. I took your advice and cancelled my directv contract and subscribed to wifi streaming service. While the monthly rate was lower, I had to increase my internet bandwidth as I was exceeding my monthly allocation. Bottom line- I’m now paying MORE for the same content. Wish I would not have read this article.

      We apologize for your frustration Roberto, but we did not make the decision for you. Our site is filled with articles that discuss the importance of doing the math before you cut the cord. You are the only one that can make the decision to do so. This is why doing your due diligence is important, not passing the buck.
