Cord-cutting is happening.  Those fed up with the yearly increases in monthly cable bills are ditching cable providers and moving to video streaming services.  In response to the changing viewing habits, low-cost media streamers from Roku, Google and Amazon are more popular than ever.

Subscribing to apps can exceed the cost of cable.  FREE apps do exist.  However, finding the good ones offering a good streaming experience can be time consuming.

OUR Cut-Cable (Streaming Only) Checklist

Streaming media player – Roku, Chromecast, or Amazon Fire TV

Netflix – Hulu – Amazon for low cost HQ movies/episodes

PlayOn or Plex for additional local file and legal streaming content

Over-the-Air antenna for your local channels (ie. ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox)

Currently, streaming devices are considered an on-demand alternative rather than a direct cable replacement.  While not the perfect solution, a streaming device isn’t a $120 a month cable bill.  One solution for your LIVE broadcasts of ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, CW and PBS is an OTA (over-the-air) antenna.  Since June 12, 2009, all over-the-air TV broadcasts are broadcasting in digital.  The reception can be better than that of cable.  Check the interactive reception maps for what is available by zipcode at or  Further resources on reception maps and antenna options can be found in our OTA post.

At, we are not interested in the illegal “how-tos” of channel development.  Free does not mean ripping live sporting streams, Pay-Per-View events, or other copyrighted content without authorization. We respect all 3rd party Terms of Service.
