Hi everyone,
I would like to share something that sounds funny, actually when I was a school going girl and don't study just for watching TV my mother use to say the same sentence that I am thinking to cut the cable. So that I should start studying without wasting anymore time on watching TV.

we bought a flat antenna from walmart and pick up free tv. we have about 25 channels local with older movies and westerns plus local news,weather channel,and unc, we use netflixs for newer movies at 8.50 per month. works great for us.

Netflix is one of the best option in that case

Get rid of the t.v. altogether and get yourself a short wave radio, its easier on the eyes and brain and you get a lot better news too.

I put my DISH on vacation but still got lots of channels and movies and sitcoms. I shouldn't have had it turned back on, went to Wilkes telecommunications with my other computer and phone. It cost me $5 a month on vacation. If you get a ROKU stick you can get lots and lots of movies for free. But no news.

get a ROKU stream tons of channels from it on your TV. We have one for each TV and can watch pretty much anything we want. They sell them at Walmart. Hulu $7.99 Netflix 12.99 per month. Drop cable and satellite

Dish recently offered a new streaming service that does not require the installation of a satellite receiver. Content is provided over your ISP (internet service provider). Basic package $20 mo. Look for other providers to offer similar packages soon, i.e. Google, Apple, Yahoo, among others...

Sling TV

I've cut the cord. Won't be going back.

An antenna for local live / sports
Roku for Netflix and Hulu
Redbox for new movies

Way cheaper.

Thanks ,when they change too Digital it open the door for Cable and Satellite too charge what they want,or to add any kind of charge they want too ,[Like you where on a 12 Month Special or you pay for every TV in your house. ]

I turned in my box a few months ago. Just need 20 meg of internet and stream what you want.

My blue ray player runs my Netfilcks and Hulu.

Netflicks has a lot of content ($8). Hulu has some good next day showings ($9). Have not heard much on Amazon Prime ($8 I think).

Anyone having luck on boosters for antenna signal?

News - pull it off any website.

I haven't had cable in so many years... I forget how long it's been..
I just recently got an antenna. It's ok. But it cuts in and out a lot... Gets on my nerves.
I just stick to Netflix, Hulu or stream it online.


Posted 9:09 pm, 01/26/2015

So let me see if I have this right...if you use anything other than cable or satellite, you can't get local channels like WXII12..I watch more of the programs on local channels than anything else.


Posted 8:38 pm, 01/26/2015

I just use Netflix and Hulu and stream news from the news sites


Posted 8:20 pm, 01/26/2015

If you have netflix, a roku and an hd antenna for wxii12 you'll have all you need.


Posted 8:14 pm, 01/26/2015

Roku provides the simplest way to stream entertainment to your TV. On your terms. With more channels than any other streaming player. We bought it at Walmart.
It is better if you google it , it will provide you with all the information.


Posted 7:47 pm, 01/26/2015

We too have roku and love it, only way to go!


Posted 7:43 pm, 01/26/2015

Posted 6:55 pm, 01/26/2015

Roku is the way to go . We love it.
