Late last year, my family was looking for ways to
cut back on our monthly expenses.
After going through everything, we decided that
getting rid of cable was going to work the best.
Luckily we were able to find some ways to help up be able to watch tv still.
We all love watching some mindless tv shows and were not willing to give that up!
We already had Netflix and were pretty happy with it.
Netflix has entire seasons of tv and some movies.The only problem is that it didn't have the latest episodes of certain shows we liked.
Like Grey's Anatomy. (Mer and Der sniff forever!)
So we added Hulu,
which gave us the ability to watch TV show episodes that aired the previous day.
Between Netflix and Hulu, we were pretty happy. Mostly
everything we wanted to see was on one of the two.
And the best part of all is that we saved almost $80 per month.
But then the Olympics were getting ready to come on.
We needed live tv.
After doing a little research, I realized that basic tv channels are still broadcast
(like when I was a kid) and can be picked up for free, with an antennae.
I went to Antenna Web to see what kind of channels were broadcast in my area.
That way we could get an antennae that would pick up the stations we wanted.
We tried 1 antennae but were still missing a few of the channels.
So we found another one and are very happy with it.
We have the Mohu Leaf indoor TV antennae. (amazon afiiliate link)
It is about as thick as a piece of cardstock.
It hangs on our wall with command velcro, above the tv.
So now between Netflix, Hulu and our antennae, we can pretty much watch
everything and we save lots of money every month!
