When our forefathers drew up their vision for a new nation, they knew there was uncertainty ahead. They could not have predicted some of the battles we would face. What they were certain of, however, was the current way was not working. They were frustrated with feeling like they did not have a choice.
What they did took some bravery, but today we are grateful for their vision – for not being tied to convention.
That same spirit and fortitude of character is present today in what many call the cord-cutting movement. As this Oregonian points out, however, it may take some bravery and soul searching before you make a leap. But in the end, people like Mike Rogoway are shaping the future of television – much the same way our forefathers have shaped democracy.
The point Rogoway proves is this:
You have a choice.
You don’t have to go along with convention.
You get to shape the future of television.
There are practical ways to embrace the uncertainty that comes with cutting the cord. Here are some of the suggestions the Orgeonian makes:
- get an antenna for over-the-air broadcasts (we know a great source for this)
- figure out which shows you can purchase on digital TV (he purchased Mad Men and The Walking Dead)
- supplement the rest of your entertainment with streaming services
We salute patriots like you, Mike Rogoway. Your brand of courage is what we need.
As for the rest of you, the team here at Antennas Direct wishes you a Happy Independence Day. Make it even happier and cut the cord.
