Cord Cutters: Can You Entertain Your Kids Sans Cable?

Screen shot 2010-12-21 at 11.21.27 AM

There’s always some reason people have for holding onto their cable subscriptions, and one of the more common excuses is this: Parents are afraid of cutting the cord to their kids’ favorite shows. But Janko has been there and done that, and in our tenth episode of Cord Cutters, he’s got plenty of tips for parents interested in cable-free options for children’s programming.


In addition, Ryan explores the streaming capabilities of the PlayStation3, where access to Netflix, Hulu Plus and VUDU means more than enough content to keep TV junkies happy. And I review the series Merry Holidays, Please Hold, a comedic take on customer service and the Christmas season.

As always, we actively seek your tales of dropping your cable, potentially for featuring in our new series of Cord Cutters Survival Stories. So please reach out to us via email or Twitter to tell us how the cable-free life is treating you!
