I cut the cord a bunch of months ago. My cable bill had reached 210 bucks a month with just cable and internet. I didn't watch 90 percent of the channels anyway so I figured it was the smart thing to do. Now I just pay 80 bucks for high-speed internet and rely on Streaming services and a personal server. I figured I would share some of the things I did so others might also give cable the boot. I have been a Netflix member since they first started and love them. I remember when they started switching to a streaming service and away from DVDs in the mail. I thought they were nuts, but they were not. Now I never rent DVDs and only stream. I also have been an Amazon Prime member since the beginning. I love the Free 2 day shipping. Then they also started adding a streaming service and it was an even bigger win. I have been big into downloading things via BitTorrent since that became a thing as well. With those 3 things in place, it wasn't until I got into Plex and their free software that cutting the cord became a viable option. With Plex, you can create your own personal server that can stream things to your Smart TV's, Video Game consoles, and other smart devices like most Home theatre systems, DVD and Bluray Players etc. I started out using Plex on my main PC and streamed things from the Hard Drive. That worked well but not great at times. Then I found out about Home Servers and got a 2 port from QNAP. That and a 4 TB Hard Drive gave me a personal server that could not only stream Movies, TV, Music, and Photos but it also serves as a Home surveillance Recorder. For the casual user just using Plex on your home PC will do. The Home Server thing is not needed. I figured I would share some of the things I learned with others in case they to wanted to lower their cable bill. I can't promise that I can answer any and all questions but I can tell you what I did. Some links to things you may need.

If you don't you risk getting copyright warnings from your IPN Provider. Once everything is in place you pretty much have your own personal Netflix. If you still feel the need for certain cable channels you can use a streaming service like PSvue, Sling TV, Hulu, etc.
