Frustrated by paying for television channels you don’t watch?
More and more people are “cutting the cord” these days—meaning they are letting their traditional cable or satellite service go and using other, more convenient, streaming options. Are you ready to cut the cord, but you’re not sure what your other options are? Read on!
The good news is that a powerful Internet connection—like what we will provide with Consolidated Fiber—is your key to a world of entertainment options. Here’s an easy guide to getting the entertainment you want, without using cable:
- Get a good Internet connection. Not all connections are equal. A single user streaming HD-quality video may need a connection speed of around 10Mbps, whereas a typical family of four using multiple devices at once may need higher speeds, like 50Mbps, 100Mbps, or even 1 Gigabit per second (1,000Mbps). Once available, Consolidated Fiber will have you covered. We’ll have different packages you can choose from, and we won’t limit the amount of data you can use.
- Connect your TV to a streaming device -or- invest in a smart TV. If you have a smart TV you do not need a streaming device. If you don’t have a smart TV, a streaming device will be the bridge between your Internet connection and TV. Popular streaming devices include Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Apple TV, PlayStation, and Xbox.
- Find the services that will give you the entertainment options you want. The most popular streaming services, Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu, provide great film options, have fantastic original content, and cost less per month than a couple of lattes. Not sure where to find the shows you want? Visit justwatch.com, enter the show or movie you want to watch, and find out on which streaming services it is available.
- Pay less, get what you want, and ENJOY! This isn’t really a step—it’s the end result of cutting the cord. You’ll be paying less than you would for traditional cable!
Consolidated Fiber is committed to delivering the high-speed Internet you need, so you can tackle step 1 of the list above!
