One website that’s perfect for endless entertainment is YouTube. Besides cute cat videos bad cover songs on ukulele, you can find thousands of hours of shows, movies, and helpful information. In fact, you could almost completely replace cable TV with just YouTube.
Youtube as Cable TV Alternative
Today I’m going to show you how to you use YouTube as a cable TV alternative.
The first thing you have to remember is that if it’s free, it’s probably on YouTube. YouTube has become a staple of the online video market and you would be a fool to ignore the value it offers.
TV Shows & Movies on Youtube
YouTube has a very convenient section where you can browse new and classic television uploaded to the website. There is also an equivalent section for movies as well! Granted, many of the videos require purchase; but at the very least this option takes the cable company out of the equation.
I mean, would you rather pay $30 for one season of your favorite TV show or would you rather pay $150 a month for your favorite show and a lot of other crap you don’t watch? I don’t know about you, but the choice seems clear to me.
