Thought I'd start a thread that allows cord cutters to introduce themselves and give a brief history of their cord cutting.
I cut the cord in May of 2014 and haven't looked back since. I have Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, UFC Fight Pass, and HBO Now on my Chromecast and Apple TVs. Unfortunately, I'm still tethered to the evil Comcast as an ISP, hoping to have more high speed options in the future.
I have personally gotten 3 - 4 family and friends to cut the cord as well.
