Buy a roku from WalMart. Tons of free channels. And $10 for Netflix, movies.
$10 a month for Hulu plus, for all the TV shows.
We got rid of cable over a year ago and never looked back. You can also buy a modem so you don't have to pay 8-10.00 extra for renting high speed modems from them but we have the added phone with them so we'd have to pay the monthly modem charge. We have Hulu Plus, we use Youtube and my husband has been thinking about Roku. Our bill went from a hundred and 50 a month to around 50.00 or so. I'd like to get rid of the rented modem but that will have to wait.
I think we're going to buy Amazon Prime and use the shows, movies, buying books and getting grocery deals as well as regular deals throughout the year with them. I'm hoping another 60.00 deal will come around for the membership. it's 99.00 but with tax around 108.00 If I can get everything ...books, FREE shipping on things we'd normally buy, streaming, etc. I think it will be an overall better deal than the ala cart we're doing right now.We are still getting basic channels with News 3, 5, 9, PBS stations, WEtv, MEtv and a couple of other oldies stations I'm really liking for free. I don't like spending tons of money on lots of channels that we don't watch. It's ridiculous to pay that much!
