Streaming Service Free Trials

Complete List of Free Trials Available to Cord Cutters

When searching out a cable TV alternative, what streaming service you pick is critical. The ideal situation for a cord cutter is to get all the great content they had before quitting cable but with few commitments and fees. Because everyone is different, it can sometimes be hard (and expensive if you’re not careful) to find that perfect cable TV alternative.

To help make that search for the right streaming service a little easier, I’ve compiled list of online streaming services with free trial periods. More will be added in the future, so be sure to check back later.

Now, let’s get to our list: Continue reading Streaming Service Free Trials

Netflix Original Series – Part III

Netflix Orignal Series Fuller House

2016 Netflix Premiers and Reboots you May have Missed

My favorite part of the New Year is that a lot of my favorite shows start returning. If you have cable, odds are you have to wait until the fall to see your favorite shows; but luckily for cord cutters, we don’t. Instead of waiting, many of our favorite titles premier throughout the year; that way you’re never too far away from the next new episode.

Taking a look back at 2016, Netflix had a ton of original shows return for another season and today we’re going do a breakdown of some of the best shows that premiered in 2016.

What is better than finding a show that you love? Finding it a few seasons in. Are you ready to start binging? Then let’s get started! Continue reading Netflix Original Series – Part III

In the below article I will explain why at $3 a month (or $24 a year), SelectTV this is one of the most valuable tools online; and why all cord cutters need to at the very least, take it for a test drive.

Sling vs Vue – 2017 Review

Which Cordcutting Service is Better, Comes Down to What you Value the Most!

When Sling TV first launched in 2015, they were the only kids on the block that allowed you to live stream dozens of television channels without a cable subscription. It was great because there were no contracts, no commitments, and at $20 a month it was dirt cheap compared to the cable alternative.

Not to mention Sling TV gave us ESPN without cable, which is a huge boon to people that love watching sports but hate paying for cable.

But with the launch of PlayStation Vue, Sling TV is no longer the only player in town and now the upstart service is hoping to give Sling TV a run for its money. The question for cord cutters now is which service should they go with, and today we’re going to take a look at each one to see how they compare against one another.

Let’s get started! Continue reading Sling vs Vue – 2017 Review

Sling TV vs Amazon Instant Video

sling_tv vs amazon_instant_video

The Choice often Comes Down to if you Prefer to Pay for Channels or Shows

For Cord Cutter, the holy grail of television is being able to pick and choose what channels you get every month. In early 2015, cord cutters got their wish with Sling TV, an online streaming service that offered a base channel  subscription with a whole host of add-on packages for $5.

At first, Sling TV was the only kid on the block offering ala carte style television to the masses seeking a better cable TV alternative. But now Amazon’s streaming service, Amazon Instant Video, has come out with their own set of cord cutting add-ons; which begs the question of which one is better?

Today we’ll find out as we take a look at what both services have to offer. Let’s get started! Continue reading Sling TV vs Amazon Instant Video

Cord Cutter’s Guide to Watching College Football Online and Over-the-Air

Pop the tailgates and fire up the marching band, because it’s time for College Football to make it’s return. College football may not have the glamour and glitz of the NFL; but what they lack in pomp and player compensation, they more than make up for it in grit, determination, and school spirit.

For those of you wanting to cut the cord this football season, you may feel a little sad at first glance.

But you will be delighted to know that that assumption is not necessarily true.
