Picking the wrong live streaming service

If you're new to cord cutting, or thinking about cutting the cord, there are some decisions you have to make regarding what streaming services to use. However, since that decision is something with which you don't have a lot of experience, how do you know if you made the right decision?

There are two answers to this, and they both apply:

  1. You won't know if you made the right decision.
  2. It doesn't really matter.

What? It doesn't matter? Of course it matters! Except, really, it doesn't. Well, as long as  you subscribed for a month, it doesn't really matter.

You see, with streaming, if you don't get it right the first time, so what? You still get streaming content, so it's not like you spent money and can't watch TV. Rather, if you picked a live streaming service that isn't quite what you wanted, you can change it. The service is only for 30 days at a time. If during those 30 days, you decide the service isn't all that, then cancel at the end of the term -- be sure you know the renewal date and cancel ahead of time -- and subscribe to a different service.

Streaming isn't like watching cable. No long-term contracts. It's easy to switch. And you have several choices when it comes to services.

Oh, and of course I'm going to throw out my usual nonsense: Do you really need a live streaming service? Can you find what you want on a free ad-supported television (FAST) service?

Don't feel pressured to get it right first time when you pick a live streaming service. If you find you don't like the service, it's easy to change to a different service. Having a Streaming Life give you options you never had before. I enjoy mine. You should enjoy yours as well.
