With cable tv bills soaring, there is an ever growing movement across the country to find other ways to watch tv – without cable!! Yes, it is possible for most of us. Some people have started using one of the new digital antennas for over the air transmissions.
Another way, is making use of your internet connection with a Smart TV or streaming device for your non-smart tv. You need a reliable high speed internet connection (at least 100 mbps) for best results.
There are services that will provide you with low cost (compared to cable) streaming of local and cable channels. Packages and prices vary. There are also a number of free services that won't give you local channels but a variety of content. Trial periods are available, and no contracts, so you can start and end services whenever you want.
Come join us in ‘Cutting the (cable) Cord”!!!
