Content for cord cutters
Cutting the cord doesn’t have to mean giving up all of your favorite TV shows and sporting events.
Most cord cutters focus on two ways to replace their content.
The content you crave is also available in other ways, and this section is your guide to choosing the right solutions.
The first is “over-the-top” content. This refers to streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, as well as to skinny bundles like Sling TV and PlayStation Vue. Basically, anything that comes in over the internet is OTT.
The second big way to get content as a cord cutter is free over-the-air TV, often abbreviated to “OTA.” These are the local broadcasts that you can get with an antenna.
In this part, we’ll cover both OTT and OTA solutions. We’ll include a glossary of some of the best-known services, and we’ll touch on strategies for replacing hard-to-find content like live sports and local news.
