Cutting the cord

Hey, cable companies, want to know why we are cutting the cord. 

It is because your ondemand service is clunky and almost unusable.  You give us just a few shows and charge for the remainder. 

It is because you charge extra for a box that records knowing good and well that Netflix/Hulu offer streaming services that allow you to watch whenever you want at no additional cost.

It is because you charge us for a box, the only purpose of which is to keep us from stealing from you, so you are charging us for your security system. The honest customer pays $12-$25 a month extra because you don't want dishonest ones stealing. 

Your technology is outdated and you did not evolve.  You didn't even try to see the writing on the wall or put money into R&D. You sat on your cash cow until it died.  Unfortunately you are taking tons of networks with you.

That's why we ditched cable years ago although soon Direct TV will be just as bad.
