What do you watch on TV? Cable stations? Satellite TV? Pay services? Antenna TV?
When I was young we just watched TV. We didn’t have all these choices and we certainly didn’t call it Antenna TV!! In fact it wasn’t even High Definition (HD), it was analog. Amazing we could even stand to watch it – LOL.
In 2015 I freed myself from high monthly TV bills, I went to Antenna TV. WOW!! I know in this day and age that’s a revolution, but you can do the same. How many times have you been watching your cable TV complaining that there’s nothing on? I know I did. Now if there’s nothing on, at least I didn’t pay for it!
I am saving over $100 a month in cable costs. That’s $1200+ per year back in my pocket! I am already an Amazon Prime member so when I want to watch a movie or something different that what’s offered on Antenna TV I can always find something on Amazon. And Prime membership is only $99 annually.
What about those TV series I like to watch on Cable or Satellite TV? Some of the stations you can actually purchase outside of Cable, like HBO Go. And the monthly fee is way less than what you’d pay for Cable with stations you don’t watch anyway. Another option is Hulu, a pay for TV service that again is way cheaper than cable/satellite TV. Perhaps your local library has a copy of the season you want to watch – a great resource!
What about Movies? If I can’t find the movie I want to watch on Amazon or Antenna TV I will either rent it from Redbox or most likely find it on Vudu, a movie purchasing app. I can find almost any movie I want on there, some for as little as $1.99. And I don’t have to pay for a membership – I can rent movies on demand. Another option is to get it from your local library, for FREE!! My library let’s me keep DVD’s for a week. WOW!
How do you get Hulu or Vudu or Amazon Prime on your TV? I personally use a Roku device, but there are many options available; Apple TV, DVD player with Apps, TV with built in Apps, Amazon Fire, Google Chromecast. I like my Roku because it also gives me YouTube and some shows on Network TV that I may miss. For example I like to watch 60 Minutes, but I don’t always get to sit down on Sunday nights to do this. So…I go to my Roku, queue up CBS and find 60 Minutes on there. Voilà! I can watch it when I have time, not when it is broadcast.
I love the fact that we have options over our TV watching, and we do. Maybe you want to exercise those options and your freedom to choose, while saving money. Win/WIN! Let me know what you think about all this. I’ll get back to you when I’m done watching my FREE TV!
