My family and I founded Cable Free Lifestyle, Inc. (CFL) in 2016 in response to our frustration with the costs of cable TV, and our curiosity about viewing alternatives. Looking at the viewing habits of my wife and I, and our 9 and 10 year old daughters, I discovered that our family rarely watches live TV. Instead, we watch what’s on our DVR or On Demand. Because, who has time for commercials?!
So, with my 20 years managing and working in the IT field, including a stint providing technical support for Verizon FIOS, my B.S. Degree in Business Administration and my computer industry certifications, securing suitable cable alternatives for my family would be a piece of cake; right? Not so much. I found the process a bit chaotic and more challenging than I thought, even for this self-proclaimed computer geek; I had to put the options on a spread sheet to figure it all out! I surveyed my wife – an employment lawyer by day and a pop-culture, sports documentary junkie by night, and my kids – lovers of YouTube, Teen Nick and Disney, about their favorite shows and must haves. I realized that of the 500+ channels we paid for, our family only watched 14 of them. That’s only 4% of the channels we paid for each month. After thoroughly researching and trying out the current streaming services, HD television antennas, and devices on the market today I discovered that I could save my family a significant amount of money each month if we took the plunge and cut the cord.
From there, my wife and I began to think about the people who don’t have their own computer geek to lead them through the process; thus Cable Free Lifestyle, Inc. was born. Our company provides you with assistance in making sense of all of the many cable alternatives on the market today. Our mission is to use our knowledge, experience and expertise to help households big and small, take advantage of technology to achieve a customized cable free lifestyle. Enjoy the freedom to pay for what you want and nothing extra.
