Here are a few questions to consider…
What do you watch?
Where is your content available?
Are there alternatives to your current service?
What equipment do you have and what does it support?
Any technology limitations?
Cost of initial investment?
Monthly costs for content?
What are your realistic monthly savings, if any?
Is everyone on board?
Is it worth the hassle?
Common Mistakes • Buying unnecessary gadgets • Spending too much on content • Getting overly complicated • Forgetting to consider the rest of the household
