    Cutting the Cord and TV Entertainment Freedom with Luke Bouma | #197


    Is your cable or satellite bill becoming a sore point for your wallet? Is that top-tier bundle causing spousal-budget arguments? Well, get out of the 2000s and into the modern age – cut the cord! Owner of Cord Cord Cutters News, Luke Bouma, gives us tips on ditching our cable bills and replacing it with streaming services at a much reduced cost, or even terrestrial broadcast antennas for free! You’d be surprised what’s available to those willing to look. Also, we take a look at how the roll out of 5G may break the stranglehold certain companies have on the in-home internet service industry. Break free from high bills and restrictive programming; learn more at Cord Cutters News!
