Cutting the Cord
Being the intelligent Burlingtonian you are, you’re probably asking yourself…why on earth would the people who provide me “the cord” be telling me about cutting it?
Well, our primary motivation at BT is to keep our customers happy. We get that you still want to watch TV, just differently! And what better way to showcase our super-fast internet speeds than to help you figure it all out.
What is cord-cutting exactly?
Put down the scissors. You won’t actually be cutting anything. “Cutting the cord” means canceling a cable television subscription in favor of getting video over the internet from an “over the top” provider like Netflix, among others. A related term, “cord shaving” involves moving to a lower tier of services to save money.
But, is it right for me?
The short answer is… it’s complicated. It depends a lot on what you like to watch. If you enjoy a lot of live sports, on-demand movies, and live/primetime television, subscribing to cable TV might be right choice for you.
If you’re still not sure, we suggest you check out our OTT Test Lab. We host recurring sessions at our new location at the Ethan Allen Shopping Center in the New North End.
