The biggest advantage of cutting cable is cutting that cable bill. The cost of cable has become high due to monopolies by the big name companies. Purchasing a streaming device and even multiple streaming services averages to around $350 a year. That is compared to an average cable bill of $150 a month, totaling to $1,800 a year.
Streaming also crosses a wider variety of devices, making TV viewing truly mobile. Since most services can be used on mulitple devices, the services can be used in multiple places by multiple people.
