As part of DIRECTV’s “Quit Cable” campaign, I created and wrote an Alexa skill that will directly connect you to a cable representative and coach you through the quitting process. Simply say, “Alexa, help me quit cable” and the skill will gather your information so you don’t even have to navigate their phone tree. It’ll also guide you through meditative breathing and remind you of all the reasons you’ve wanted to quit cable for years.
Cable Cutter is available on the Amazon Skill Store and can be enabled on Echo’s everywhere, even in my parents’ home. They’ll never quit cable, though, but this isn’t for them!
