Glad to be here! I've recently been overcome with an OCD-like urge to cut the cord. Initial research shows progress but simplifying the system so my wife can watch it is my ultimate goal. So, in that AVS appears to be the best resource available. I hope to read up some more now that I've joined and start asking intelligent questions in the near future.
Welcome to AVS! If you are a sports fan, don't cut the cord, options are limited. That said, I cut the cord and I am getting along great. I use some of the money I used to spend on cable TV for faster broadband, which is the key to watching glitch-free, 1080p streaming content. The quality and availability of online content has expanded tremendously in the past couple of years.
