Pros of Staying Plugged In with Optimum

While the full list of “cable vs. streaming” pros and cons will vary from person to person, there are some key advantages to keeping your bundle that apply across the board. 
 

Lower Internet Bandwidth Requirements

Whether you live alone, with a roommate or partner, or have a full household, every Internet-enabled device used is pulling from the same pool of available Internet bandwidth. From checking your email, to playing online games, to catching up on social media, every action you take requires available Internet “speed” to accomplish the task at hand. When you add streaming television into the equation, chances are high that you will have to upgrade your current Internet package to accommodate the increased demand. Be sure to consider the cost associated with a higher bandwidth plan when calculating total costs. 


Ready Access to Local News and Sports

While many streaming services have made great strides in offering local sports and news programming to a greater number of their subscribers, this is still an area where cable typically has a clear advantage – particularly for viewers outside major metropolitan areas. Due to a number of considerations, including the associated costs, many streaming services include little to no local channels in their lineup. If that’s something that’s important to you, be sure to research what will be available in your specific area from any streaming provider you’re considering.


Unwavering Reliability

No television connection is perfect 100% of the time; the majority of us have surely experienced the “cable going out” at some point in our lives. But by and large, a hardwired Optimum cable connection is exceedingly reliable, and unaffected by some of the scenarios that can cause streaming hiccups. One of the most common culprits for slow streaming speeds is outside your control altogether – the number of users in your area watching at the same time.
