    News — how to get tv without cable

    CUT THE CORD ON YOUR CABLE TV

    CUT THE CORD ON YOUR CABLE TV

    It's no surprise that the average cost for cable TV is on average $85-$150 per month with continued increases happening each year. I suppose the most interesting part about this is that the monopolized cable and satellite TV industry is realizing that people are looking for ways how to lower cable bill and how to get TV without cable. 

    So they've strategically re-targeted everyone who "thinks" their leaving the controlled industry by offering you "mini-me's" or reduced versions of their service as traps to suck you right back in.

    Services such as Hulu, Sling and many other alternatives to directv is out there. But when you compare them with non-commercial companies they really don't compare in terms of value and price.

    Today we will start with: Sling

    Sling

    Cost:  Sling Blue will run for $25. Both packages can be had together for $40 monthly.The price of service has now increased.

    Offers: Orange package that provides 30 channels and offers a Blue package that offers 45 channels. You can get both for $45 but you won't get all the channels and it will cost more money to add only a few more channels that they offer which does not include news channels like CBS or ABC or live sports.

    Works With: Apple TV, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Fire TV Edition and the Echo Show video speaker, Nintendo Switch, Xbox 360 and One, Samsung smart TVs. 

    Owned By: Dish 

    ...

    Next on the list is DirecTV Now...

    ...

    Let's take a look at... HULU

    Works With: Apple TV, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Fire TV Edition and the Echo Show video speaker, Nintendo Switch, Xbox 360 and One, Samsung smart TVs. 

    As you can see, you're getting much of the same reduced services STILL controlled by all the providers you're trying to keep your money away from. They offer you little value and premium pricing so that you become frustrated enough to upgrade your service back to $100 just to get a little bit more.

    So we just looked at all the major players and they own the market yet again. Personally, I would prefer Netflix to any of the above mentioned services. If you have Netflix you'd understand why.

    But I wouldn't stop there. Netflix doesn't provide a live network and that's not what their for so pairing it with a service that provides live sports, additional movies and local network channels would make for the best home entertainment.

     

    Now let's take a look other cable options and the best iptv for sports...

    VIP Stream TV

    Cost: $25 for 5 TV Connections!!!

    Owned By: The little shop around the corner

    Works With: Any android device or Smart TV. Works on Roku and Chromecast via mirroring directly from your phone. Apple products must be unlocked to be capable of downloading 3rd party apps. Mobile app included so it does not cost extra to download and watch your service on your phone or tablet.

    Offers: Over 2,000+ channels, live sports, local news. Includes our bonus app that offers thousands of movies and shows. DVR can be used to record shows but recommend upgrading from a Fire-TV-Stick to Nvidia Shield for more storage capacity if you enjoy recording. But within about 10-15 minutes after show has aired, it's available for viewing. Check out our channel guide for a full understanding.

    *We offer Spanish channels as well*

    I don't know about you but the choice is clear to me. Why continue to pay more for less when there are options for you to pay far less and get so much more without sacrificing quality over price. 

    Most channels come in 1080p and 4K so I don't expect that to be an issue for you. If you're in the market of replacing your current source of entertainment or upgrading it by adding what we provide, come and check us out!
