I am NOT endorsed or paid by anyone for this YouTube Video! I just wanted to let everyone know what we did to save money on our cable bill or satellite bill.
About 3 or so years ago, I decided to cut the cord & cancel our satellite for good. We had satellite bc since we were so rural, that cable was not an option here, but either way, I decided to cut out satellite/cable & go a different route, bc we were paying $175 per month for satellite. Now that was for 2 places bc we have a mother-in-law suite here, where my wife's mom lives, so we were paying for 2 households, but regardless that is just so crazy to pay that kind of money for something, when you honestly think about it, you do not or really use.
The main thing that was holding me back was the fact that I am a college football & basketball fan, but once I broke it down & realized I could buy season tickets cheaper than I was paying for cable, I knew i had to just cut the cord & figure out another option, & that is what I did.
My first step was that I bought a big external HD antenna & mounted it to my chimney. Which was really easy to do. I just bought all the antenna mounting hardware & had to get 2 boosters bc we had 2 households feeding off the HD antenna, & it all cost me around $350-400 dollars for the setup. Which was just a 2 month cable bill. And with the outside antenna, we get all our local channels like CBS, ABC, NBC, PBS, FOX, etc...all in HD & all for FREE.
Then my next step was I purchased a Roku for each TV. And what Roku is, it is basically like your cable box. The Roku is the hub that allows you to watch internet TV. And there are several of these devices out there now, like AppleTV, Google ChromeCast, Amazon Fire TV Stick, etc, but at the the time, Roku was about the only option out there. And we have absolutely no complaints at all with Roku.
Now with the Roku, you can subscribe to all your favorite internet streaming service or channels, like Netflix or Hulu. And watch them on your TV. The one we general subscribe to is really just Netflix, which is basically $10 a month, & from time to time, we subscribe to Hulu, which is around the same price as Netflix. Plus there are so many FREE channels on the Roku, I mean tons of free channels there, that you do not have to subscribe to, you just watch for free! Also now there so many options now, like HBO, Showtime, Flix, Crackle, etc...you can subscribe to all these streaming services now & still save so much more money than you did paying for cable or paying for satellite. So you Game of Thrones Fans can subscribe to HBO for &15 a month, binge watch & then cancel.
Now another channel we get is Amazon Prime channel. If you are an Amazon Prime member, you get their channel for FREE & get to watch all the Amazon Prime movies & TV Shows from their library for absolutely FREE!
The gamechanger & the way you can watch sports is with the service called SlingTV. Sling TV, with the sports package, runs $25 a month & you got all the ESPN channels, FoxSports channel, & some others sports channels that I have no idea what they even are. Plus you also get channels like Food Network, HGTV, history, A&E, etc., but if you are sports fan, like me, this is the way to go. And this ESPN package includes the SEC network, the PAC12 network & the ACC network, & I'm sure there were more ESPN affiliates as well. And after the season is over with, I just cancel it & go back to paying $10 a month for TV. So the most we pay is $35 a month, & that is only during college football season & basketball season.
I hope this, How To Save Money On Your Cable, video was helpful & I hope y'all have a wonderful day!

We were Paying $175 for Dish Network & $45 for Internet=$220 a month. We now have Netflix $10 plus Internet $45=$55 per month now. I will take $55 vs $220 any day ;)
Thanks for watching & hope you have the BEST day ever!
We use a local company here, Pinebelt wireless..since we are sos rural, i do not have many options at all. It is 6mgb & we have some buffering at times, but for the most part, we have no issues streaming at all.
+Cog Hill Family Farm oh ok lol it's just funny how people alway say I'm cutting the cord and not using satalite or cable anymore and won't pay them anymore yet they go out and do this get something like sling TV who is owned by a satilite company like dish your still paying these companies they just found another bway to take your money lol
It's not called free TV people it's the way it used to be back in the 70s 50s and the 60s so get off your butt turn the channel that's how we used to watch TV Lawrence Welk Hee Haw Star Trek that's how I was brought up
Thanks for sharing, my cost went up to $212 after being $71 a month for a year. When I asked Century Link why the price went up so high they told me the "Everything" promo was over. I told them to cut everything except internet, now its $55 a month. Going to get an antenna and follow your lead. Thanks for your posting!
I just got rid of Comcast and I was paying about $260 a month so I said it's time for them to go so I got YouTube T.V. and they give u 66 channels plus live local T.V. channels NBC, CBS, ESPN and ABC and you could add Showtime for $11 a month you can also add Starz for $9 a month, this is just as good as Netflix and Hulu but better and this is wireless cable T.V. now come on u know u can't find nothing that can beat this for just $40 a month, if you do find something that can compare to this give me a call 📞 or tell them to come and s👀 me 😏
I had a ROKU and it sucks. Outdated garbage! Better than nothing but no replacement for cable. I have Netflix and it has crap on it too! Kids pay for the Netflix so I don't. You still have to pay for internet. I now have an Amazon Fire stick and had Kodi to watch movies but it is not that reliable. I might give Amazon Prime a try. I can't live without internet no matter what. Cable companies are a rip off!
what comes around goes around.. I watched all TV for free until cable was invented.. Being in Athens GA... My concern is: When I moved here fro SC.. nothing with anteanna.. digital antenna's won't even pick up anything.. closest tower is Stone Mountain.. I like sports too but refuse to pay the ESPN fees
You're funny dude.. 1st you need a Wi-Fi connection in order for rupee to work.. Then with the Netflix the ESPN and everything else your paying for your right backup the over a $100 to watch TV.. not sounding so free to me
I mean does it really save money? We need WiFi to run these (Roku Hulu. Netflix) and I haven’t found anything under than 60 bucks for WiFi alone. We literally watch only a handful of Chanels....... Discovery. History. Animals planet. ID. AMC. I’m paying 150 a month.
Cog Hill Family Farm oh thanks for the info. I can’t decide if I want to cancel my television service because it’s bundled with my internet and it’s actually all in one piece of equipment. Altice one they really make you not want to get rid of cable. I don’t own my own modem or router tho so you wind up paying $20 a month just for equipment. Ahh a rip-off
chocolatewheelchair yep, bought my own modem....we are so rural the only option I have is DSL from AT&T($75 3mgb & is not unlimited), Or satellite internet like Hughs Net(which is horrible), or a local provider(Pinebelt Wireless 6mgb $45 & is unlimited) and that’s who we have it with. I just had to spend @ $250 for the equipment
OK, thanks. The power company is working on fiber optic which will 100 mbps, but they're not sure when it will be available. I can watch youtube with the 3 mbps without much buffering, it just takes a little bit to download initially.
I do...we just recently got upgraded to 6Mgps about 2 months ago, & we were 3 prior to that. As long as there is not 2 or more things streaming or using bandwidth while you are trying to watch TV, you should be fine. Now, I will say this, you still might get a pause or buffering every now & then, but it never bothers us really.
Hi Jason. We live in rural Muscle Shoals, AL. We have tried for years to keep our costs lower for TV and Internet. This last year, we have stopped all satellite services. Verizon works really well here and we use them. At first we had Roku, then DirecTV now. We were only allowed 15gb/month of hotspot use. Then we decided to add an iPhone to our account. Apple has a lightning digital AV adapter. We connect it to the phone, then to the HDMI cable. Anything we watch on the phone is transferred to the tv screen. From personal videos to YouTube, Amazon prime, Hulu etc. Resolution is great and we get to save all of our hotspot use for our computers.
I pay 145-155 a month for a triple bundle. If I just get WiFi - it’s 60 or 70 bucks.. plus the 10 a month for Netflix. Hulu. Amazon. I mean it’s practically the same. Plus some shows that we watch aren’t on those apps so I’d have to pay those separately. Idk.
I like books but too far from a library so doing audible and kindle also free Hoopla. I also have both a Roku TV and a YouTube TV subscription to see sports. I also read the web and YouTube TV came with Google Play Music so I can hear albums. I am currently getting internet thru UVerse that is AT&T. But only because my apartment will not allow me to get another company besides the cable system's service. I am searching for a good antenna to get PBS and a free movie channel This TV.
$11 Amazon Prime
$25 Sling tv
$75 avg cost Internet service
Free OTA tv
$131 plus taxes
You where paying $175 for cable
So all that work and you saved about $40. Question is was it worth it?
I have a fire stick and an antenna in my room. I use the spectrum app to watch power rangers live. I watched yesterday's episode a second time on the dvr in the living room. My mom has a non dvr cable box in her room. My dad has an antenna in his room. we have an antenna in the kitchen.
I really am wasteful and I'm ashamed of it. Spectrum cable, internet, 2 premium channels, a sports package and home phone (293. a month). Add to that a cell phone and Netflix. About $340. total a month. And what do I mostly do? Watch youtube! I'm thinking of going over to youtube's movie/tv program, moving the internet to my electric company, keeping the cell phone and letting all the rest go bye-bye - total around 130. a month. I could do lots with an extra $210. a month. Why haven't I done it? Because I don't understand about all this Roku and antennae stuff and I'v never heard of Sling in my life. Maybe this is one of those times I pick an unfortunate son and task him with figuring out what to do. Thanks, Mr. Smith. At least I think I've learned enough to tell my son what I want done. Ahh, one of the joys of having adult children - someone to delegate chores to! ~Sherrie from South Carolina
Great video! I live in a town home so I can’t have the large outdoor antenna. Any recommendations for things I can do inside for better reception? I do have Roku. I have basic cable so my bill is only around $45 a month. But I actually can’t afford that anymore. Any ideas would be great!
I'm getting my Internet back on after a 3-4 month hiatus. I have zero interest in cable. I'm already watching more YouTube than TV, even though I use a TV antenna. It's great for important stuff like local news and weather. Also I want my Netflix back!
Take a look at Mobdro. It can be installed on Roku and Android. You can watch tons of TV channels on it, like HGTV, Nick, ABC, NBC, TBS, CBC, TNT, CBS, A&E, Disney, the list goes on! They are all FREE. It's honestly amazing.
Here's the problem with this and other similar YouTube revenue sharing channels (notice you get advertisements when you log on to watch) and the real "net" savings. It's not saving the $175.00 +/- referenced in this vid. Why? Because in order to stream using a Roku box or Amazon Prime, you've got to have Internet and in the case of Amazon Prime, send now $110.00 to the richest man on the planet, Jeff Bezos/Amazon.
I have what Spectrum refers to as an "legacy" service meaning they no longer offer this. It just went up to $161.00 per month which includes a zilion channels we never watch, no xtra premium movie show channels other than the included FX and the Internet speed is at 200 Mps.
So going to just Internet at 100 Mps would cost $64.99 (200 Mps not available apparently) and next up is 400 MPS at $89.99 month.
So for $65.00 bucks we could get 1/2 the Internet speed and with a hi-tech antenna- about $75.00 - $100.00 at Costco- can't put up old school antennas here where we live nor would I want to, we could get various local channels out of Wilmington, NC.
What we'd lose is twice the Internet speed- sometimes problematic at certain hours of the day when streaming and we'd lose the premium channels we do watch- Fox News (not the weak local Fox), Fox Business, HGTV and Hallmark.
We'd have to bump up to the higher speed Internet (doubling the current speed) and so our "net" savings would be $71.00 per month.
Bottom line: Are the news (non Fake News) and entertainment channels we watch daily and want to keep worth the extra $71.00 per month i.e., $2.36 per day? For now the answer is still yes. We do enjoy the entertainment viewing and frankly can no longer stomach the vitriol and deceptions spewing from channels we use to watch regularly for news and information.
I would love to cut the cable!!! No love lost for Spectrum ... but for the moment our preferred viewing choices are jut not available for "free".
And no disrespect for Cog Hill Farm - The Dancing Farmer. All good information in terms of a option for you to eliminate a portion of your monthly Internet/TV bill. You'll still need Internet at whatever cost you can secure it at and then add one version or another of an antenna. Good luck!
TFS...We are not offered Spectrum in our area, the only Option for internet we have is AT&T(6MPS) or a local company(15MPS), which is who we use. AT&T in our area charges $65.95 for 6MPS, Any is only for 150GB. Anything over that we get charged $10 per 50GB over. So we use a local company & it is $49.95 a month & is unlimited data.
I have no cable company option whatsoever. The only option we have is dish network or direct TV, so which means I have to pay for internet plus pay for Dish Network. We were paying $175 a month for Dish Network PLUS $65 for at&t, totaling $240 a month, not including any overage charges from at&t bc we went over 150GB. So when we dropped Dish & and switch away from at&t internet, we went from paying $240 a month to $60.00(Internet + NetFlix)..that is how we save $175 a month. Hope that makes sense-Thanks
The fcc made it legal for any Internet company to block or slow down hulu, netflix, and sling tv. Most people get there Internet from the cable company. The cable company does not want you to use any of these apps.
I cut my cable bill in half
I tried this for free and decided to keep it. I was able to cancel my cable service and send back all the boxes they were charging me for. See what Obama says about cable TV monopolies.
There is a more efficient/cheaper way.
We just recently got the Roku, and it’s amazing! If there wasn’t so many shows on cable tv we liked, we’d cut the cord on cable! I have ditched the cable in my room though. All i have is Roku in there.
SO... With all those paid apps, (Sling, Prime, etc) you are not really getting anything for FREE...... We had Amazon Prime once and most movies STILL charged you to watch them......... We got rid of it....
Our cable is cheap, because it isn't a monster company.... BUT... we cannot sign in to a cable provider because of being a mom and pop company, so we cannot use the Roku like everyone else... stinks.....
Our cable bill just went from $222.00 per month to $399.00 with Spectrum!! So, I'm cutting the cord this month! I'm doing my home work now...that's how I came across your video. Thank you for your help. We also have Netflix $ Prime, but we have never even check out the Prime! Thank you again. We are in Ohio.
I think cable news is destroying America and the world, regardless of a persons political affiliation. All it does is breed anger and false outrage. In 24 hours of a day, there is about 5 MINUTES of Real actual News - and 23 hours/55 minutes of conjecture and “panels of experts.” Life improves when you cut that hate out.
Howdie Mr. SlingbladeTV, I was hoping a video labeled, "How to......: How we....." would actually show some "how" parts. You tell "why" with details, motivations, and difficulties. You tell "what" the result is and viewing options available to you now. You tell the "when" you made the move, and you even through in the "who" Mother-n-Law and all. You talk about the "where", but there ain't no mention of any "How".
Please excuse my howling criticisms, however I don't understand howbeit that you did not actually tell the "How" part.
New subscriber here... We do not homestead and live in a subdivision which does not allow us to have any outdoor antennae on our property so we have a dish which is always losing signal. Good thing I am not a tv watcher other than college football.
Raven, are you so far away from broadcast station that the type antenna that one places in the window would not work? My brother lives 35-50 miles from station and he says he gets a pretty good picture.
There once was a girl named Raven
Who was good when not misbehavin
She was willing and able
After cutting the cable
To have fun with what she was savin
Between Amazon, Sling...and Kodi (which we don't talk about)....I get everything. 20 internet, 8 amazon, 20 sling = 48 a month...next year cable internet goes up 30 ...= 78 a month...was paying direct TV 136 with no internet per month... saving 1752 over the next 2 years and getting any and everything, unbelievable the amount of things to watch 24/7...(no fucking infomercials).....+ internet. Now cut your cable.
I have never had cable TV because I couldn't justify that much money for channels I wouldn't want my children to watch. I've always had antenna TV. Amazing to think that this generation didn't grow up with antenna TV and it's foreign to them. When it's too cold to go outside I watch YouTube, that's better than TV ever was. ';D
get the watchespn app for roku & activate with someone elses current tv subscription. i use a friend/neighbor's & it works great. u can then stream any sports event on espn 1,2,3 or abc. i cant believe it's free but it is.
I’m in the woods, down in a Valley & the closest tower to me is @ 50 miles(give or take) & it works very well. We do have like a pause or glitch every now & then, and sometimes if it’s bad weather, some of the further away stations go in and out, but for the most part, no issues really. I thought the same exact thing as you too & what I did was I went and bought an inside antenna that goes next to your TV and see if I could get anything & I picked up 2 stations, so you may try that first. Good luck! Thanks
You should just get Nitro on Roku. You can cast (I DO NOT mean screen mirroring) Terrarium or teatv to the roku to watch any movie or tv show with an android device (cell phone, tablet, etc) Get nitro on your roku with the free preview that end 22 JAN.
there are apps for your roku that you dont have to pay for why pay if you dont have to ? mobdro has a lot of sports and alot of channels, you can get showbox for your movies, free flix is another tv and movies. i dont pay for sling or amazon or hulu or netflex. great job with antenna? i have an indoor antenna works great.i have a tablet for all my other apps thats free to watch movies and tv.
so we are rural too and now if we cut the cable we have to figure out a better way to do internet. Satellite is our only option too. What sort of data package do you have roughly and also ballpark what you pay for it would be awesome. We are a family of 2 adults and 2 10yr old boys who have tablets and no other gaming equip. (yet) so I didn't think we were heavy users but our pkg is bigger than our city friends yet we still run out of data each month?? I think we may be getting ripped off. :-(
Yes!! Cut the cord. Playstation Vue here with Fire TV from Amazon....saving $85 a month!! But the net neutrality stuff is making me nervous....but if it is jacks up and runs slow... 2, 4, 5, 9, 11, and 30 will be our channels...and won't be paying anything! Some people don't realize that they are paying for free channels!!!!
Here is a tip just in case you are just not ready yet to cut the cable line. Call your cable company and talk to the department that handles DISCONNECTIONS. Dont try it with customer service because they will not have the flexibility like their Disconnection department to offer deals. This department is the last line of defense for the cable company to keep you as a customer and will try their best to keep you on. You probably will get a significant cut on your bill and probably get offered better services. The reason for this is because no matter what that cable will always be at your home. They would rather get something for it then nothing.
One thing to consider with watching streaming tv shows and movies over the internet via roku, Amazon, Netflix and so on is your bandwidth limits with you internet providers. We have AT&T and with just the internet package we have a bandwidth cap of 150 gigabyte. If we use more than 150 gigabyte we get charged $10 for each additional 10 gigabyte that we use. You may think that 150 gigabyte is a lot but with everything in HD it can add up quick. Plus this includes computer internet bandwidth as well.
If you get the AT&T U-verse cable package your internet bandwidth cap jumps to 350 gigabyte. So if you have this problem and use more that 150 gigabyte of bandwidth think about getting the cheapest cable channel package. It may be cheaper to do that in the long run than to pay the upcharge for a few extra 10 gigabyte chunks every month.
As soon as we find better option that AT&T we are cutting our cords as well.
Can you do an update on this video and talk about how you listen to podcasts please? Also, are you able to "record" shows with sling tv? If you have a show you want to watch but can't be there how do you watch it?
Cannot record but you can go back and watch just like Netflix, & I think that is with most shows. They do offer a 7 day free trial, & it is super easy to cancel...just login to your account and cancel..no hassle at all. I sure will do a vid on podcast. I have several people ask me about that. Thanks!-Jason
So we have cable in our house and basically only 2 out of 5 people watch tv and not even a lot at that. Usually it's always sports related stuff, what's the best option for sports channels like fox, fox sports, espn and all that stuff?
We use SlingTV for sports, & have been completely satisfied with it! Here is the list of sports channels you get from them: https://www.sling.com/programming/sports Now as for your normal network TV stations like NBC, CBS, ABC, Fox, etc...we have an antenna mounted outside & get all of those channels for free. Hope this helps-thanks!
So if you are using all these apps and Roku boxes how are you getting Internet? Over the air is a dead spot where im at along with thousands of others in the high desert north of Los Angeles. Im on a Facebook page with almost 2k people living in the area and we all post new purchases of antennas and if they work or not and none have been found to work. So there is only one price for internet up here which is $44/mo plus 10/mo for the internet/router box rental and then I was looking at like PS Vue or Sling and those add another $50 roughly for a package of channels of sorts and if I add sports its another $20-30 so thats putting me at $134/mo and for $129/mo they offer all channels (including premium channels) as well as the $10 rental for the Cable DVR box as well as a home phone (same price that is part of the deal so im stuck with it). Id love to get rid of cable but for the prices of these apps and when you add on Hulu and Netflix thats another $10 each... geesh, its so freaking expensive
I do have internet, it's DSL from AT&T. & The roku is the hub that lets me stream the internet to my TV, it's kinda works like a cable box, & the only thing we sub to is Netflix($10), Hulu($10 Sometimes) & then during college football season, SlingTV($25), & that is it. Now I do have to pay for internet, which is roughly $50, but I was paying for internet anyway, even when I had DirectTV($175). So I when I canceled the DirectTV, I went from $175 to, no more than $45(Netflix, Hulu, & SlingTV)...hope that makes sense.
The SlingTV sports package should only be $25 a month...but I do get what you are saying. And if you do go with cable, Just be sure there is no introductory price, & say in 6-12 months from now, they raise your rate! Good luck, & if you have any questions, I will try my best to help.-Jason

Bricolajul a ajuns in Romania in urma cu aproximativ 10 ani, insa in Statele Unite si in statele occidentale acest concept este mai vechi, si isi are originile la inceputul anilor ’50. Bricolajul se refera la capacitatea oamenilor de a crea sau repara diverse obiecte fara a apela la ajutor specializat.
Primul catalog de bricolaj pentru renovarea locuintei a aparut in 1968. Acesta a nascut conceptul de bricolaj care sta la baza lanturilor de magazine din zilele noastre. De la covoare si perdele, pana la mobilier si prefabricate, bricolajul se refera la tot ce inseamna renovarea unei locuinte in aceasta acceptiune.
Pe orlo.ro gasesti toate cataloagele de bricolaj, de la cei mai importanti comercianti. Catalog Dedeman, Catalog Praktiker, Catalog Baumax, Catalog Bricostore, Catalog Ambient si altii.
In Romania retelele de magazine pentru bricolaj sau extins rapid, cel mai important comerciant din acest segment este Dedeman, care a pornit din orasul Bacau si a ajuns sa detina magazine in cele mai importante orase din tara.
