It's Not Me, It's You: Breaking Up With Cable appeared in the San Diego Union Tribune on 10-19-15.


  1. I broke away from cable about 2 years back and the experience has been good so far. I have used Roku to stream various channels and it has been cost effective. The only issue I think could be (with some folks) the video quality as streaming may not always give you HD quality videos.

  2. Thanks for sharing your experience. I went with the Amazon Fire Stick which works great and use an antenna for local stations. However, I wasn't able to pick up CBS and the Charger games in San Diego with the antenna. Since the Chargers left to LA, that's no longer a problem.
