HOW TO CUT THE CORD: How We Cut Out Cable & Satellite & Still Watch Everything - Including SPORTS!

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. $55 vs $220 Other Options We sue to do: SlingTv $25 Hulu $10 Even with those 2 services. it is cheaper than cable or satellite -Peaches Tee Shirts https://thecoghillfarm.com/shop/ Cog Hill Farm PO Box 2204 Selma, AL 36701 ---------- Purchase -Roku Premiere - HD & 4K UHD Streaming Media Player: http://amzn.to/2iKmwPZ -Roku Express: http://amzn.to/2vHRudT ---------- 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.

Yeah, you're about like me, live in the Southeast and love my college football, but I'm a fanatic. I not only like SEC, but I gotta have my PAC, Big Ten, ACC, Conference USA, but I'll watch Ivy League games. This has stopped me from cutting the cord or in my case the Satellite. I see this video is from a year ago and I'm hoping Sling is the way to go for us football nuts. Let me ask you does this sling work on just the one tv or gotta get a sling device for all tv's used? do I have to pay monthly fee for each device? I appreciate any feedback and like other posters in here 'F" mainstream anything, it's all a brainwashing. I love my podcast and I still love my shortwave radio and I listen to that often. Outside antenna where I'm at is lucky to get NBC and thats it except for PBS. Thanks, for this video Brother

Wow! I don’t know how you deal with people asking the same crap, over and over, just because they can’t read a little bit. As I was going through these comments, I must have seen at least 30 people ask the exact same question about still needing to have internet, and I didn’t go through all the comments. No way I could deal with that. You must have the patience of a saint. READ THE COMMENTS, PEOPLE!!!

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 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 😏
What Fred Said (2 months ago)
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!

Wait a second. How much do you pay for internet
chocolatewheelchair (3 months ago)
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
Cog Hill Family Farm (3 months ago)
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

We live in a rural area also, and our internet is only 3 mbps, advertised. It's not really that much, according to speed tests. Is this fast enough for watching internet tv?
John AKA (3 months ago)
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.
Cog Hill Family Farm (3 months ago)
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.
Becky Gant Burns (3 months ago)
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.

The only thing not mentioned is the internet cost to stream Hulu, Netflix, SlingTV. So he’s probably paying about half of what he use to...not bad.
DaniKStylez (3 months ago)
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.

You haven’t cut the cable because you still need internet from them. If I could find a cheap wireless internet I would cut the cable and tell them to shove it.

+Scott Wiggins With comcast TV & internet I was paying $143/mo (no phone) My best friend had the bundle of TV, internet & phone & was paying LESS. I just couldn't get the phone service because a wee little town has a phone company which services this area & comcast said as long as they are in business they can't give us phone service, so hey Comcast, why not lower my bill, it's not my fault about the phone. I cut cable TV this morning, 12/23 to save $80/mont but have to have the internet service @ $81/month (still high) but what 'am I to do. Pluto TV & YT is fine on my Vizo Roku TV.
Scott Wiggins (1 month ago)
I cut the cable and went with a roku.  Best thing I've done in terms of tv viewing in twenty five years or really ever as I grew up with cable.  I still have Comcast for internet but only until there is an alternative in my area, then Comcast is gone for good.  You can cut your bill by 2/3 by just dropping the cable bundling.  In a couple of years we can probably stream over the air wirelessly.

Sharon Allen (3 months ago)
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

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!

Hi mr Jeff
Cog Hill Family Farm (6 months ago)
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.

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.....

How do you get your internet connection?
chessdude67 (10 months ago)
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.
MuckeyDuck Duck (11 months ago)
I don't mind boosting the signal TO the mother-in-law, It's the signal, particularly the audio coming from there that I'm look to filter out.

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.
MuckeyDuck Duck (11 months ago)
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

Just get a Android tv box with Kodi... that will get everything you will ever need or want.
Tmanqz (11 months ago)
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

Do you have to have internet for took? If so how much do you pay for internet?
Tmanqz (11 months ago)
Comcast/infinity is like 50 a month.. however a new customer is 20 the first year then jumps to 50 the second year.. not a bad deal. Buy the modem...don't pay 10 rental , save more MONEY.
Cog Hill Family Farm (11 months ago)
Do have to have internet and ours is DSL through at&t and it’s $65 a month...but we were already paying that on top of our cable
CLETUS7813 (11 months ago)
What do you pay for internet? You gotta figure that in right?
Tmanqz (11 months ago)
Comcast/infinity new customers get $20.00 the first year then $50 the second year...good deal. buy your own modem , don't pay the rental fee...save money.

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.
biff322 (11 months ago)
You get all your locals, but how far away are your broadcast towers? I'm like 50 miles from mine and have lots of trees in the way. I haven't tried an antenna cause I just figure it wouldn't work.
biff322 (11 months ago)
Thanks that gives me hope, I'll give it try.
Cog Hill Family Farm (11 months ago)
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.
Great job

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!!!!

You will need an internet connection. Thanks & good luck!!! Best decision we made
Juan Winner (1 year ago)
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.

Hard Truth (1 year ago)
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.
