I stream got me a nice 2gb Android box off Ebay and out a build on it. I see all the movies in theaters, live TV, and so much more!! I only pay for Wireless internet.

Sorry to sound behind the times but when you say antenna, is it one on the roof or one of the little ones inside your home attached to your tv.....sorry....a little non-technical over here.

Buy a Android box, put Kodi on it then a build. If you don't know how I can do it if you got the box for 20.00. I watch everything free just need internet.

For anyone interested in saving $$$ Switching from Cable to Streaming is very simple. Great website that will compare services, streaming options and will teach one how to make the switch. Have been 100% streaming since 2016. Previously paying $166 for cable. Streaming cost now $52. Huge advantage there are no service contracts!!! I use Directv Now, Netflix and Acorn.

Bought a $20 RCA flat antenna from Family Dollar and can pick up 25+ stations. AcornTV and Netflix for movies and British programmes.

Make sure I got this what is a hdml is that the hookup on the back of the tv?


Posted 9:48 pm, 08/19/2017

I bought a box from Morris Ullom for 60$. I get so many channels I cant watch them all. You have to have good internet and a HDMI hookup and you will love it....Well worth the money.

I'm with the ROKO bunch. never had better TV,even with dish net......just type in what you want to see...

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.


Posted 7:52 pm, 04/20/2015

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


Posted 9:55 am, 03/09/2015

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.
