ANTENNA VERSES CABLE OR STREAMING
A few days ago I had an antenna installed on my house. I am now able to view TV for free! This does come with some limitations. However, I can tell you that the picture quality is outstanding. The limitations are that you "only" have 50 channels - for free. Yes, you do have to buy the antenna and you need to install it. I had a local company that specializes in that - Mr. Antenna- do mine. But overall, I am impressed.
I also have a ROKU 3 and subscriptions to HULU and Sling TV. That allows me to see a ton of shows including CNN live watch current series the next day. The one channel I cannot get that I really like is MSNBC. So there will be trade-offs.
My Cable bill for TV is over $120 a month. Like many people I have no choice as to what channels I get - they are all "IN THE BUNDLE!" If I eliminate Direct TV and go with the antenna the ROKU 3 with all of its channels and my two subscriptions, the total monthly cost is $24. So roughly I will save about $100 a month. The antenna and installation was $264. After three months I break even and I do not have to pay for all those channels I do not want.
Is it right for you? That is something you have to decide. If you have questions, post them below and I will try to answer them. But now I want to see which one of the many movies and shows that I can get for free will be on my viewing tonight!!
