We are always looking for new story ideas, tips about changing trends, rumors, and more that allow us to make sense of this fast-changing industry.

HotDog.com has been in business since 2011 but until recently we were called KillTheCableBill.com. Like many websites, it started as a single guy just trying to make sense of the world.
At the time, there was a lot of information about cutting the cord — too much information — with most of it wrong or incomplete. The website was meant to make sense of all of this. And it seemed to work because it not only became very popular, it also spawned its own community.
Over the years, the industry changed. In 2011, Netflix was still two years away from producing its first original show. It was just months after Hulu started charging for its service. Most important, it wasn’t until 2015 that the era of live TV streaming started with Sling TV. We were here through it all.
With all that change in the industry has come change to HotDog. It’s not a question of how to watch major TV events without cable. No one wonders if you need cable to watch The Bachelor (although if you want to know how, we explain it). Now people want to know how to navigate a diverse and expanding selection of content that is poorly served by cable and satellite when it is served at all.
HotDog.com explains how to stream everything from speech tournaments at your local high school to cricket matches in rural India. It is an amazing time for streaming entertainment. But as a result, viewers need more guidance than ever to find out what they want to watch and how they can watch it.
We are constantly producing new reviews, background content, tutorials, data studies, analysis, and news content about all aspects of the streaming experience. And we have been expanding into other fields beyond stream that are related. This includes hardware as well as technologies like VPNs that help cord-cutters make the best use of their resources.

We are all thrilled to hear from our readers as well as others in the streaming industry with questions, thoughts, rumors, story ideas, and anything else.
Frank is our Content Editor. He oversees the creation and maintenance of the material on HotDog.com as well as related products like our newsletter. His primary interest is in the explosion of previously difficult-to-obtain content that is available online if you know where to look. It doesn’t matter if that’s all but forgotten TV shows from childhood, under-covered sporting events, or his own obsession, low-budget gems from the past that never got the attention they deserve.
