There are big advantages to cord cutting. Not having to wait a week for the next episode (able to binge watch), not having to reach for the remote to fast forward/skip (no commercials), being able to watch on a number of different devices without a hassle, and being able to go to http://www.imdb.com to determine if a series is worth watching. Also, Netflix is very good about remembering where you left off, even when you switch devices. Not everyone cuts the cord to save money. And maybe it's an age thing, but I have become extremely intolerant of commercials (and crap phone calls).
