Tips on Getting Great Entertainment without Cable

In most cases, you have access to high-quality broadcast programming with just the use of an antenna. This programming, often referred to as over-the-air (OTA) programming, is completely free.

The easiest way to watch TV without cable is simply by buying only the shows you want to see through an online source such as iTunes, Amazon, Netflix or Hulu. You will see the programming in its highest available quality, and you may purchase single episodes or entire seasons.

Update: Similar to the Xbox. Playstation now has their own streaming option: Playstation Vue. Choose from three different packages to watch your favorite shows without being tied down to a cable provided.  You can stream through your Playstation or download the app to stream on other devices.

The Xbox is now your best option to completely cut the cable cord.  The Hauppauge Digital TV Tuner for Xbox One may be more expensive than other streaming devices, but it now gives you a single interface and remote to watch both over the air networks like CBS and ABC, and streaming video from Netflix, Hulu, and SlingTV. You can get those 3 streaming services plus free HD broadcast TV for about $35/mo. That’s a lot of content at a great price!
