For those just thinking about becoming a cord cuter here is another incentive as all the black Friday/Cyber Monday specials roll out. The math is pretty simple:
Average cable bill $80 x 12 months = $960 per year.
Cut the cable bill and immediately put the money towards a new HDTV. A typical 42″ HDTV is only around $500 at the time of this writing. That means you’ll pay for your TV in 6 months! Use the leftover funds to install a high quality TV antenna for broadcast or a Roku box or a subscription to Netflix.
Are you planning to cut the cable cord next year as part of your new year’s resolution to save money? Leave your thoughts and ideas in the comments below. And as always don’t forget to check out the cordcutterguide website and enter our Kindle Fire giveaway contest this month.
