Ditching Cable, Landlines And More
Your cable bill is probably one of your largest utility bills and – even though we’re all watching a lot more TV these days – probably the least necessary one.
Cutting cable could save you thousands of dollars a year.
However, changing your entire entertainment setup can be daunting, especially if you’ve had cable for 40 years.
Navigating “cutting the cord” can seem overwhelming, but with free and inexpensive options available, there’s little reason to keep paying for cable.
Yes, there is a learning curve to figuring out a new way to watch your favorite shows, but once you get used to it, you’ll never miss that cable box.
If you’re not very technical or need help if something stops working, retailer.
Best Buy offers consultations to help you determine which products and gadgets you need,
In addition to services such as Geek Squad for installations and repairs.
During COVID-19, home visits have been replaced with live, virtual consultations.
NOT YOUR FATHER’S RABBIT EARS Depending on your TV watching habits, all you need may be a digital antenna.
This will give you access to local newscasts, tornado warnings and local sports.
To determine what channels you can expect to receive in your area, go to TVFool. com and run a report with your address. Once you have an idea, you can buy a good antenna that matches your needs.
The antenna connects to your TV through a coaxial cable, which you may already have from your cable provider.
For the best reception, place it in a window, on the side of your house facing the nearest tower, on a second-story wall or outside. To find the broadcast tower nearest you, visit AntennaWeb.org.
LIFE IS BUT A STREAM If you already own a Smart TV that is connected to the internet, chances are you already have streaming services installed.
You just need to set up an account by going to your TV’s menu options and finding links to Netflix, Hulu, Sling or Amazon on the screen.
Smart TVs offer internet connectivity and run apps just like a smartphone,
Where a regular TV only receives a signal from an HDTV antenna, cable or another audio-visual (A/V) source.
If you don’t have a Smart TV, you’ll just need a streaming device that plugs into the back of your TV such as a Roku, Amazon Fire Stick or Chromecast.
Subscription streaming video services such as Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime start at less than $10 per month,
With no contracts or extra fees – and if you have an Amazon Prime membership, Prime Video is included.
Newer video streaming services, such as YouTube TV and Sling TV are designed to replace a typical cable TV package.
