Just how many people in the U.S. have had enough with traditional cable television and all the strings it comes attached with? According to a June 2017 Forbes article, 20 million households. In the first quarter of this year alone, 782,000 cable subscribers cut the cord with their cable TV provider. That’s a record-setting total, according to the report, which adds that the “skinny” bundles of channels that cable companies are offering have yet to catch on.
At the heart of this is consumer preference and affordability. Do Americans really need hundreds of channels in exchange for paying an average of $100 per month? Survey says… no, they don’t, and nothing quite grabs the attention of multi-million dollar companies like a hurting bottom line.
“…consumer dissatisfaction with their cable companies has been simmering for quite some time,” a senior electronics editor with Consumer Reports told Forbes, who went on to add, “The good news is that there are now more alternatives, so it’s possible for consumers to get the shows and movies they want.”
For those still on the fence about cutting the cord that links their television set to the cable company they are paying $1,200 annually to, we’ve got a solution to propose: the Clear TV Key. This antenna connects to every modern television and allows for improved signal reception of broadcast channels. That means local and national news, sporting events, kids programs, Spanish-language channels, classic movies and more are within your reach. Here’s the kicker: There’s no monthly bill. Buying a digital TV antenna is a one-time purchase that improves signal reception and allows your television set to better draw in broadcast signals from national stations like ABC, NBC, CBS and Fox.
Per the Forbes report, cable customers were most upset about the amount they pay to subscriptions companies and the customer service rendered by said companies. Are you really willing to spend in excess of $1,000 a year for services that can be readily replaced – and rarely missed – thanks to a digital TV antenna? If the answer is no, we can’t blame you.
