Most of us have a love-hate relationship with cable. We like television. We love a handful of stations. But we don't need hundreds of useless channels, many of them boring, some of them in languages we don't understand. Month after month, we pay our cable bills, yet we use only a small fraction of what we pay for.
It’s no wonder that cutting the cord seems so appealing. The idea of paying for only channels you want to watch, watching them when you want, and paying nominal monthly fees sounds great.Sure, $7 a month for Disney’s much-anticipated streaming channel sounds great, if that’s all you’re subscribing to, but let’s be real: You can’t settle with just one streaming service, and these subscriptions add up.
I'm going to walk you through how these services add up and how it's more than a little misleading when streaming services tout their abilities to save you bundles of money.
An antenna will help you access local channels, but what about favorite cable channels like HGTV, History Channel, A&E and your favorite cable news channels?
You’ll need a live-TV streaming service like AT&T WatchTV, DirecTV Now, FuboTV, Sling, Hulu or any of the myriad streaming services. All of these have various packages and channel offerings, and one isn’t necessarily better than the other; it’s all about personal preference.
You choose a streaming service and opt for the ad-free, live-TV option. You'll get access to about 70 or so channels, most of which you'll never watch, but at least you're not paying for 300+ stations from your cable company.
