Data shows that satisfaction with cable is lower than it’s ever been before. But the threat of endless phone trees, long hold times and persistent retention specialists stop many people from even attempting to call their cable company to begin the process of quitting.
In order to make breaking up with cable a little easier (and infinitely more entertaining), we partnered with North Kingdom to enlist Amazon’s Alexa to do the heavy lifting for you. With DIRECTV’s Cable Cutter skill, Alexa will now call your cable company for you, navigate the automated phone trees, soothe your frayed nerves via a guided meditation, and provide moral support throughout the entire quitting process. Simply say “Alexa, help me quit cable” to begin your journey towards emancipation.
Cable Cutter was a 2019 Webby Awards nominee in the Apps, Mobile and Voice category.
