    Let me get straight to the point. We're living in an age where more and more people are cutting their cable cords, as streaming services continue to rise. This is a step in a good direction, but many popular channels on television refuse to allow these streaming services to host their shows. Due to this, many of the things we actually recognize and want to watch on the streaming services are limited.

    But that shouldn't be a problem, just have the channels create their own streaming services and host their shows there, right? Well, that would be great, in theory. But unfortunately, that's not how it's working right now. See, Cartoon Network had the idea to make their own streaming service, and that would be a good idea, except for one thing: It requires you provide your cable provider to actually watch the shows on the app; otherwise all you get is previews.

    And for many of the popular and upcoming shows on the channel, this isn't exactly increasing their views. In my case, I wanted to watch Infinity Train, but without cable, those episodes are locked to me. And now, with the release of the epilogue series to Steven Universe, Steven Universe: Future, this is even more of a problem. We cannot watch the newest episodes without choosing our cable provider. What, I ask you, is the point of cutting cable and moving to a streaming service, if it requires cable to use in the first place?

    You could always watch the episodes illegally, of course, but not only is that, you know, illegal, it also does not support the creators behind the series, who pour hours and hours of effort into making a good show. That's why I created this petition: we should encourage Cartoon Network to offer their streaming service with no cords attached, allowing us to watch the episodes and shows we want, anywhere, anytime.

    Not to mention, having such a streaming service benefits both the network and the creators, as easier access to your favorite shows means more views, and more interest. Not only that, but it might even entice new people to start watching, who have always wanted to watch these shows but don't want to pay for cable.

    Sign the petition, and help us hurry the cord-cutting along. It's time for the way we watch our shows to change.
