How to Ditch Your Satellite Company
At the time of this article, the average household spent roughly $100 a month on satellite services. That’s $1200 a year, which could pay for a vacation. Do you really want to spend that money on TV? Don’t worry. You’re not being asked to give up TV completely. This article is just going to teach you how to ditch your satellite company so you can watch TV for less.
- Find an Online TV Viewing Service
There are so many ways to watch TV online for a fraction of what you’re paying for satellite. For example, you can get Hulu for only $7.99 a month plus tax. That’s a huge savings over the cost of satellite. Many channels even offer full-length episodes for free on their website. Another option is to watch TV shows through Netflix or Amazon Prime. If you already have Amazon Prime, you can watch hundreds of TV shows and movies for free. If you can’t give up certain channels, consider Playstation Vue. You’ll pay $29.99 to $44.99 a month for the same channels and there’s no contract or hidden fees.
- Get Your Movie Channels From Another Company
If you have satellite because you love watching movies, get your channels from companies like Amazon, Playstation, Hulu, or another TV viewing service. You don’t have to have cable or satellite to get these channels. Many companies are offering these channels ala carte.
- Watch YouTube
Did you know you can watch a number of shows on YouTube for free? Just search for your favorite show and see what’s available. Not only are you getting to watch the shows for free, but you can watch them from anywhere you have an internet connection.
- Take Advantage of Free TV
Some cities offer free TV service. The channels are limited, but it’s still free. Why pay to watch your local channels? Another option is to get an HD antenna to watch your local channels. These antennas can be purchased rather inexpensively.
- Pay to Watch What You Want
Last, but not least, if you only watch one or two shows, pay to watch by the episode. On Amazon Prime, you’ll pay around $2.99 per episode. That’s only $12 a month to watch one show that has a new episode each week. Combine this with the free options and you’ll get everything you want for very little money.
You don’t have to spend a fortune to watch TV. There are so many great ways to cut your TV costs so that you can watch TV and not worry about the cost each month. Take the plunge that so many other Americans have already taken and ditch your satellite company.
