There are drawbacks to cutting cable. If you want to watch sports or certain channels live, cable may still be the best choice. Streaming services, and even Aereo, don’t offer premium cable channels, such as The Food Network, sports package channels, or anything beyond basic cable. And with the exception of Aereo, basic cable shows can’t be viewed in real time either.
If you like watching local programming and sports, you should consider putting up an antenna.
