I’ve noticed quite a few satellite TV deals in my area. Two of the biggest providers are DirecTV and Dish.
Prices vary by location, but I saw some advertised packages with over 100 channels available for $20-$30/month.
They typically require a 2 year contract and the promotional rate if for the first year.
Please check with each provider to make sure you’re getting the best deal for you.
Even though we have no cable TV, we still like to watch shows and movies. We got the Roku last year and really enjoy it.
It’s an easy way to access our entertainment and there is no subscription fee for it. We bought the Roku 3 on Amazon (sometimes you can get a refurbished one really cheap).
While the Roku has some great and wonderful free channels you can grab, there are some additional services you can pick to enhance and tailor it to your own needs.
If you want to catch current shows, Hulu Plus can be a cheap option.Plus members can access their content on their electronics such as computers, iPod Touch, Roku, and TV. Hulu offers less ads for their shows, but they are still included with a paid subscription.
Like Amazon Prime and Netflix, Hulu offers some wonderful original content you might to catch.
Sling works by streaming your favorite television shows through the internet. They have packages with channels such as ESPN, HGTV, and Disney.
You can grab them starting at $20/month and there is no contract. You grab a package based on what you want to watch, instead of shelling out money on TV you won’t use.
Besides the Roku, you can pick up Sling TV on your Amazon Fire, Xbox One, and Nexus Player.
I think this can be a practical option for couples who don’t want to completely cut out their favorite shows.
