Cable TV keeps getting more expensive, but making sense of your alternatives isn’t easy. Between online video services like Sling TV, DirecTV Now, and Hulu, and streaming devices like Roku, Fire TV, and Apple TV, there’s a lot to decipher before you can start saving money.
Technology journalist Jared Newman has been cable TV-free since 2008, and has documented the rise of cord–cutting through his popular TechHive column and his Cord Cutter Weekly newsletter, which has more than 13,000 subscribers. In this session, Jared will talk through all your cord–cutting options, explain some of the latest devices, and answer your questions. Jared will be joining us via Skype and will simultaneously stream live on YouTube.
