Cord Cutting Front and Center on a Busy Cyber Monday

Cord Cutting Front and Center on a Busy Cyber Monday

America’s big discount weekend is coming to a close. It was a big one for cord cutters, with big markdowns on streaming services, streaming devices, and other cord cutter-friendly buys from Black Friday through today’s Cyber Monday.

Traditionally a day for chaos in big box stores and other brick-and-mortar retailers, Black Friday has increasingly become an online phenomenon — good news for Amazon, which pushed its own Fire TV devices hard all weekend and continues to do so at the time of this writing (actually, all Amazon devices — including Echo devices and Fire tablets, as well as those aforementioned Fire TV devices — are on sale). Amazon also offered discounts on other cord cutting products, even giving consumers a deep discount on Fire TV competitor Roku at one point over the weekend.

E-retailers like Amazon were active on Black Friday, so it’s no surprise that traditionally brick-and-mortar retailers like Walmart are now making a push on Cyber Monday. Walmart has some great streaming deals active right now, including a big discount on the Nvidia Shield.

But the most jaw-dropping deal of the weekend might be Hulu’s huge offer. They’re offering new (and eligible returning) customers 12 months of Hulu for 99 cents a month.

That’s Hulu’s streaming video on demand (SVOD) subscription, of course, not the Hulu with Live TV skinny bundle — but the price is amazing all the same. If you are looking for a Cyber Monday deal on a live TV skinny bundle, though, you can get your fix from PlayStation Vue (half off the “Core” plan for one month) or fuboTV ($15 off your first month of the “fubo Extra” plan).

If you prefer your live TV free, then you’ll want to check out the over-the-air TV antenna deals available right now from Mohu.
