I am a cord cutter. I only pay for internet then use a Roku to watch whatever individual channels I need. (I’ve got some cable login’s that allow me to get passed that part of the channel thing)
One of the channels I have on Roku is YouTube. It’s a scaled up version of what you see on the web but with some important differences. There are no comments, no full descriptions and importantly…. NO LINKS.
I have subscribed to about, I don’t know, 50 YouTube channels and those channels deliver enough content to me.
I browse YouTube the same way I would channel surf on a television.
Sure, on occasion I’ll search for something specific, but mostly its replaced my desire for browsing shows.
As a cord cutter, you lose the option to surf. You have to know what you want to watch and that is a different way to process television.
I’m happy YouTube has provide me a chance to surf again.
