At, we believe that everyone should have free access to cord cutting resources. So our experts are constantly researching new technology and sharing the latest news, tips, and trends in the industry. We see it as a privilege and great responsibility to keep our readers informed. That’s why we adhere to strict editorial guidelines in all that we do. These guidelines are buttressed by our fact-based, objective, and unbiased reporting.

Our Approach

The rich resources we create are the result of hands-on testing of products and services, countless hours of research, and a deep-dive into industry data and trends. We then publish helpful how-to guides, product breakdowns, industry reports, buying guides, news briefs, and more. It’s all centered on new and exciting ways to cut the cord, and it’s communicated in a way that engages and inspires our readers.


We are not beholden to outside interests. In fact, we only cover topics that we believe will help our growing online community find real solutions and enhance their cord-cutting journey. With this in mind, the research we conduct and the resources we create put people on the path to a more enjoyable and affordable experience. Our mission is to help folks snip the cord in a way that makes sense for their budget and lifestyle.

If we wish to continue on with a clear conscience (and we do), we must remain committed to the following code of ethics.
