Cutting the cord is indeed a popular method to save money, but this doesn’t mean that have to give up TV completely – as long as you have an internet connection.
With a little imagination, you can still watch TV episodes online for free (and maybe a generous neighbour). Without paying for cable, here are seven alternatives to watch the big game or even the trendiest new series.
1. Take advantage of free trials.
The majority of big streaming providers offer free trials to new customers. Netflix and Hulu, for example, are free for a month, while HBO Now, Sling TV, and DirecTV Now are free for seven days.
Sure, a trial period is only brief, but that’s a good method to see which programs you enjoy in case your decision to switch from cable to another subscription. To prevent any costs, remember to terminate your membership at the conclusion of the trial time.
You always have alternatives if you would not want to waste your time with such a free trial and therefore aren’t willing to commit to a premium membership. Free TV programmes may be found on websites such as PlutoTV and Sony Crackle. However, be expected to face through advertisements.
You may watch free episodes of current as well as popular series on network sites and apps, such as NBC and Fox’s.
Because television, as well as cell phones, have grown increasingly interwoven, it’s no surprise that several big mobile carriers are now including streaming services as a perk for users. For example, Verizon is presently giving away a year of Disney+ for free with it’s own unlimited plans. Select T-Mobile plans to include a normal Netflix membership, while select AT&T unlimited plans have included an HBO subscription.
A digital antenna can help you cope with the loss of cable by providing live TV, including sports as well as local news, without the need for an internet connection. For less than $20, you can get a top-rated high-definition antenna.
