Video: ‘I’m still a cable TV man’
Posted On July 14, 2021
A man from New Jersey is not only still a cord-cutter, but also one who makes a living by providing cable news to his cable subscribers.
In an interview with Crain’s New York Business, Michael Nachman, who owns a small cable news network called Cable TV Guide, said he has seen more than 100,000 cord-cutting households in the U.S. in recent years.
His network is one of a handful of news outlets that offer viewers access to cable news channels like CNN, Fox News and MSNBC without paying for them.
In fact, he said, the average cable TV viewer spends about $20 per month to subscribe to cable TV.
Nachman said he is willing to pay his cable bills, and he does it with his own money, because he is a cord cutter.
“I’m a cable tv man,” Nachmann said.
“I’m the guy who goes through the whole thing.
I’m a little bit of an odd duck.”
Nachmann, who was born and raised in New Jersey, has been a cable news watcher for nearly 20 years.
His cable TV experience began with his father who had access to local and regional news in the 1970s.NACHMAN’S MOMENTUMAT THE TIME He is not alone in his devotion to cable.
According to a study by the Pew Research Center, about 1.3 billion people in the United States now have access to online video.
That figure could be much higher because many people watch television for entertainment and not as a source of news.
Cord-cutting has become so common in the past few years that even the most loyal cable news viewers are finding it hard to keep up.
In recent months, some TV stations have gone after advertisers with online ads that target cord-Cutters and call them “scam artists.”NACHMANS WATCHING TV ONCE A DAYNachmans mother, Barbara Nachmans, said she has tried to help her son stay on the right side of the industry.
“My son was a cord cutter.
He was going to do it the old-fashioned way, which was cable TV,” Barbara Natchmans said.
Natchmans has been trying to find a way to help his son stay connected to his favorite news channel.
She said she knows her son is not the only one who is struggling to stay connected.
“It’s like everyone is on their phone all the time, and I don’t know how he does that,” Natchman said.
Barbara Nachmans is an avid sports fan.
She watches a lot of sports and likes to watch cable TV news.
She also likes to make sure that her son gets his news on time, but it is not always easy.
“If he’s not getting it out, I’m watching it on TV,” Nichman said of his father.
“He is the one who gets me,” Nuchmans said, laughing.
“He doesn’t care about the cost.”
Barbara and her husband, Michael, have also watched their son become a better person.
They know it’s not easy for someone with the same background as their son to get a degree and become a successful entrepreneur.
“But it’s been good,” Nchmans said of the cord-shaving.
“It’s been nice to be able to help him do that.”
