How do you save money cutting cable? These days there are so many ways to cut expenses, especially when it comes to tv and general entertainment. One of the easiest ways to save money each month is to cut your cable bill. I’m guessing you probably don’t watch all 100+ channels, if you do we have bigger problems to worry about.
There are so many options available for you to entertain yourself, even with your TV or computer.
Let’s start with the free options.
Pluto.tv is a free video platform that hosts over 100 channels of online video that has been hand curated by the creators. It is free. F-R-E-E. And it’s really good too. It’s too good to pass up on your Apple TV or Roku. The Stand-up TV channel is hilarious and full of great comedians so I highly recommend that as a starting point. You just can’t go wrong.
I know these are your basic tube sites but hear me out for a moment. There are so many great content creators on these sites and you can watch many indie movies and web series for free. There’s that free word again. YouTube even has many live streaming channels that you can find here Live – YouTube.
Man, YouTube is on fire right now with their streaming options. YouTube TV is basically a live streaming platform for cable networks. It costs around $35 a month but it gets you all of your basic network needs. Save money cutting cable and swing for a cheap option like this if you need live streaming networks.
YouTube Red is more for premium YouTube access with first access to new content from creators and YouTube original shows. All ad-free and comes with free access to their music app. $10 a month.
Ah, the basic staples of a cord-cutter’s life. Netflix and Hulu are both commonplace when it comes to ditching the satellite dish or cable company. An almost limitless supply of TV shows and movies in a cheap, wrapped up monthly option. Around $10 a month for either.
50+ channels for around $40 a month. A little steeper but it’s a similar network streaming package like Youtube TV but it also includes access to the standard Hulu library. Just recently Twitter announced it is going to be launching a system to watch live streaming sports and news through their app. The tv world is getting more and more competitive each day.
This is not an exhaustive list by any means but it should certainly help if you are looking to move away from the cable guy. Or maybe just save money cutting cable in general.
