When we founded CordCutting.com in 2013, ditching cable for streaming television was still a relatively new idea. But as early adopters, we saw the future in customized, more affordable home entertainment. It then became our mission to help newcomers cut the cord by showing them just how simple (and money-saving!) it could be. From our very first article on “How to Cut the Cord,” we soon began reviewing every streaming service and device by using them the same way that consumers do: from our own living rooms.
Today, 80 percent of American households stream four or more services on their TVs. As cord cutting exploded into new areas, so did our website. In addition to streaming, we now cover internet service and VPNs in more than 100 product and service reviews. We also publish independent research referenced by outlets like TechCrunch, PC Mag, and Gizmodo.
But as the world of streaming keeps changing, our commitment remains the same as it was on day one: to personally test every product from our TVs, laptops, and mobile phones, with a thorough analysis that now comes from almost 10 years in the industry. And while we'll keep adapting, we’ll never stop providing real-talk recommendations, from the couch with a remote.
