Roku and Netflix–Cable Company Destruction?
If there’s one thing I love–positively LOVE!–about gadgets, it’s their great potential to make my life better, easier, and more entertaining. And now that I’ve found a possible way to shatter a cable bill by the judicious use of Netflix, DSL and a Roku video device, I’m more inclined to express my love of gadgetry.
Here’s the rundown: a DSL subscription can run about twenty three bucks a month, depending on where you live and what plans are available. A subscription to Netflix that includes unlimited downloads starts at a measly nine bucks. The Roku? Another ninety nine.
So for a hundred bucks to open and thirty two bucks a month, I can essentially get access to a wide-open commercial free library of movies and television shows. Why would I get cable when this is a possibility?
And now, thanks to this coalition of gadgets, you can overthrow the cable company. Sounds like a plan to me.
