Disclosure: I am a member of the Netflix Canada Stream Team and will occasionally receive product and perks. All opinions are my own.
Very early on when Netflix originally came to Canada, I took out a trial membership. Over the years since, I have found that more and more of our family’s TV time was taken up by using Netflix over traditional cable channels. After a while, I found I was the only one using traditional cable at all. I was actually PVRing far more then I was watching and even still was often on Netflix instead.
About a year and a half ago, my wife and I took a look at our cable closely. We decided that in reality, the only thing I would miss if I cut out the cable was sports. Since I rarely ever watched sports any more anyway, it made sense to simply “cut the cord”
The reality is that I quickly realized that I did not lose anything by cutting the cord. In fact, I feel like I gained as I had a chance to check out some shows that I had not previously gotten around to watching.
My kids have not skipped a beat since they already had mostly switched. The kids often are more up-to-date then I am on exactly what new shows are coming for kids. They tend to know what new seasons will be released and they know when.
A few weeks ago, out of nowhere, I received an email offering me a spot on Netflix Canada’s Stream Team. It did not take me long to take up the opportunity as it gave me a chance to share about some shows I truly enjoy.
