Anything and everything about cutting the cord and streaming all the video you could possibly stream.
The Multiverse of Disney+
Android Central writer and Disney super-fan, Ara Wagoner, is here to give us the skinny on everything Disney+ that was unveiled by the company this week. It launches November 12 for $7 per month and will offer an extremely deep back catalog along with new content.
Phil and Are also talk about the recent price increase of YouTube TV and the value it adds for subscribers.
Just As Bad In Icon Form
This week Phil and Russell try to make some sense out of the latest Apple event, with a new Apple TV app that looks a lot like the current one, and Apple TV+ channel thing that might be good — or not — and all the ramifications that come with it.
013: DirecTV Now Implodes; Apple's Show Time
Timing, folks, is everything. As soon as we recorded Episode 12, news dropped that required an update. So here we are, with Tablo TV changing the change it's made to its on-screen guide subscriptions. Plus we go over all the changes that are coming to DirecTV Now — hint, you'll be paying more and potentially getting less for it.
And Phil chats with Rene Ritchie about what to expect from Apple's new streaming TV service, which is expected to finally debut >at an event on March 25.
012: Captain Marvel and Disney Plus
Captain Marvel is in theaters. Disney+ — the massive streaming service that will comprise all of the company's offerings, along with Marvel and Star Wars and a million other things you probably didn't realize Disney owns — is waiting in the wings and will be available later this year. So Phil sat down with two of the biggest Marvel and Disney brains he knows to suss it all out.
NOTE: Between the time we recorded this podcast and the time it was published, Tablo has changed its plans for guide subscriptions yet again. Important update, folks!
011: Making the Switch with Jon Rettinger
We're back after a little break for a super exciting interview — Jon Rettinger, and old friend of the pod (and friend in general). Jon and Phil talk up cord-cutting and how they introduced it to their families, what worked and what doesn't, and what's good on TV these days.
If somehow you haven't seen Jon's work on YouTube, definitely check it out, and also be sure to swing by his new channel, The Apple Circle.
What it is and where to get it The CordCutters.com Podcast is a bi-weekly (that is, ever two weeks) venture from Phil Nickinson (ye olde @mdrndad on Twitter, and Modern Dad on YouTube), and whomever else happens to join that week.

10: Did Apple Win CES?
CES — the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas — is a mess. More TVs and gadgets than should be allowed by law. But the real surprise came from someone who usually sits out CES: Apple. Rene Ritchie from iMore and Vector hopped on the line to hash it all out, and frame what's to come.
Phil is the best
Glad to see you're back at it I really looked forward to Android Central podcast when you were there and to be honest I don't listen to the other guys on a regular basis anymore, I really feel you have that indescribable thing you need to stand out for a podcast to work. Again your the best Phil!
