People who want to end their TV subscriptions — otherwise known as cutting the cable cord — have multiple different streaming services and numerous streaming gadgets from which to choose. From time to time, the LMLP will provide links on this page to material explaining ways to access television content over the Internet — sometime referred to as “over the top.”
The New York Times teamed up with the Wirecutter, the product recommendations website, to compile the definitive guide to cord-cutting. The Wirecutter tested multiple services, streaming devices and antennas to come up with cord-cutter bundles for different types of people in 2016: movie buffs, sports addicts, fans of premium TV shows, binge watchers and families with children. What they found was there is no one-size-fits-all solution because each streaming service carries a different catalog of content, and each gadget has access to different services.
