The last six months have been a roller-coaster ride for the cord cutting community. HBO announced it would unbundle from cable, so did Showtime, and everyone was rocked at the announcement of Sling TV at Consumer Electronics Show this year. With all the fuss that’s been made, it has been really easy to not notice that CBS also announced its very own streaming service; and unlike HBO, it’s already on the market.
Why Cord Cutters have fallen in love with Amazon Prime
Everyone knows about Netflix and Hulu, two game-changing streaming goliaths, but not a lot of people talk about Amazon Prime. When you think of Amazon, you think of a “one-stop shop”, “buy anything” website. Even if you’ve heard of Amazon Prime, you might think it’s just some overpriced plan for free shipping.
Believe it or not, Amazon Prime Benefits include a wide variety of services that give you unparalleled access to online media like never before. Today we’re going to take a look at Amazon Prime, its features, and how it can be the missing piece of your cord cutting puzzle.
Let’s Look at the March Madness Schedule, and What Channel March Madness is on.
Then our March Madness streaming options
Spring is in the air and college basketball is everywhere. Yes, that’s right, March Madness is finally here! Over the next two weeks, millions of Americans will watch dozens of teams square off in one of the greatest sporting events of our time. However, if you’ve decided to kill the cable bill and cut the cord, you might be feeling a little left out of all the hype.
In these modern times money often means more than love of the game, so naturally cable companies and sports organizations often like to black out big events to anyone that doesn’t have cable; and March Madness is no different.
The vast majority of March Madness will air on cable television; but luckily for us, and unfortunately for Big Cable, you don’t have to miss out on all the action. While cable executives may try to keep you from streaming every game in one convenient location, there are still plenty of ways to watch March Madness without cable and today I’ll tell you how.

As the List of Channels Grows, Sling TV Keeps Getting Better and Better
And by adding just one more device, we may have the Complete Solution we have been waiting for
The one topic the cord cutting community cannot stop talking about is Sling TV. An over-the-top service produced by Dish Network that offers 14 live television channels (and growing) for $20 a month; with the option of adding on additional channel packages for $5 each. Launched February 9th 2015.
To many, this is the service that cord cutters have been waiting for; a cable TV alternative that makes companies like Comcast obsolete.
But is it really?
Don’t get me wrong, I think Sling TV is amazing, and it will definitely help change the way we view television; but I don’t think Sling represent the end all cable TV alternative we’ve all been waiting for. But with one or two companion devices – it could be. Allow me to explain.
