18.Oct.2013 You Can Cancel Cable and Still Get Television
For those looking to cut costs, just get a vhf/uhf antenna for ten bucks and digital converter (if your tv is old). If you’re near an urban area, you’ll get 12 to 100 channels for free.
Just wanted to give a heads up since I recently did this. I canceled TV two years ago and didn’t miss it at all, but I couldn’t find mlb playoffs anywhere online, so I decided to try antenna. Sure enough I got Fox and could watch the game. Since I wouldn’t get Pac-12 network even with cable, going to an antenna hasn’t effected me in any way. Fewer channels means less time getting sucked in by brain-dead television, fewer horrible ads that make me wanna smash the set, heavier wallet, more time outdoors, etc.
I’m sure many of you guys stream content online, but this is an alternative if you want to sit on the couch and watch the old fashion way. Consider this a public service announcement, and you can go off topic all you want.
