Why Waste Money on Cable or Satellite?

If you are thinking about dropping cable or satellite service, I highly recommend it.  If you have a new HD television, all you need is an HD antenna to catch local channels for FREE.  I found one that works really well at Big Lots in New Iberia for under $20.  I have old analog TV so I needed a converter box.  I broke down and spent the $50 on one I found at Kmart.  You can probably shop around online and find better deals.  Try searching for HD TV antenna on ebates.com to find deals on indoor  and outdoor antennas!  My next thing will be to buy an outdoor one to pick up more channels and possible use my old Direct TV wires to run it on all TVs. 

So, what am I doing for movies or TV shows that I want to watch?  I am using Amazon Prime.   Amazon Prime offers Free access to Amazon Instant Video (check out all the free movies and TV shows available here), FREE Two-Day shipping for eligible purchases, and the ability to borrow books from the Kindle Owners' Lending Library.  Amazon offers a Free 30 day trial before you pay the $79 per year membership fee.  That is about $6.60 an month.  My laptop does not have a way to connect to my TV screen, so I stream movies on a wifi Roku box.  You can also get an app to run the movies on a tablet or phone.  You can purchase a box on Amazon or through Roku directly.  If you go through ebates.com, you can receive a 3.5% rebate on your purchase from Roku.  You can purchase a Roku box from other sites on ebates that offer a better deal.

I am not just watching Amazon instant videos through my Roku, I am also streaming FREE movie channels like Crackle, Snag Films, Popcorn Flix, Vanguard, Drive-In Classic, and lots more.  Most free movies do have short commercials, but the movies are unedited.  The down side is that I have not figured a way to set parental controls.  Hulu Plus and Netflix can also be run through the Roku box, but there is a monthly fee. I will update ways I am finding free/cheap TV and movies as I find them.

Have fun with the money you are now wasting on cable!
