What does it take to cut the cord?
There are three traditional cable companies in English Canada: Rogers, Shaw and Telus (I think).
There are also companies that provide cable services and cable prices using other technology, like Bell’s Fibe TV.
All of these require you to pay a lot for service you don’t need.
What are the alternatives?
