Cable vs Competition
Nowadays, cable TV has a pretty bad reputation, but it’s not all terrible. Here are some of the main advantages to sticking with or choosing cable over streaming services:
- Have everything in one place. There’s nothing easier than switching your television on and having immediate access to all the channels and shows you want. When streaming, you often need to switch between different platforms, which can be a challenge for some, especially those who have difficulty navigating evermore complicated television sets.
- Bundled packages. Cable TV allows you to have your phone, internet, and cable all in one place, which can be helpful when something goes wrong and you need some support.
- Cable-specific channels. Because of licensing agreements, there are still some channels that you can only get through paid cable TV. This includes some premium subscriptions as well as 24-hour news networks, but local channels also have restrictions too. Some streaming services give you access to these, but not all.
