During the series of lockdowns across the world, even the people who never watched TV got plenty of time. We all have seen people sharing the lists of must-watch, IMDB, and/or Top 100 shows of all times. Some people were generous enough to create and spread Google drives for all the people across the world because regardless of the location and time zones everybody was in the same boat.
One of the most asked questions to stay sane was to ask around what are the best streaming services, free streaming services, and movie/show suggestions. When it comes to cable service providers, we all are pretty familiar with some leading providers in the US and that includes Mediacom cable, Spectrum, Xfinity, Cox, and Frontier cable to mention a few.
