New Post on MakeUseOf: Ditch Your Cable Company With Free, Legal Alternatives



I started writing for MakeUseOf, which is a blog for web application and other free, useful programs! I just posted an article on Ditching your cable company with free, legal alternatives.

Summary:

Ditching your cable company has never been more viable than it is today. The rise of online, streaming TV shows allows you to save on one of the most expensive household bills if you are willing to sacrifice a bit of the convenience of having either a cable box or DVR. The main question you will need to ask yourself is what shows you actually enjoy watching. Several name brand shows are now available online in free, ad supported formats; if your particular shows are not available then you may be stuck with your cable company, at least for now. More and more shows are always coming online, so keep checking back to see if your favorite show is available.

  • This’ll be great if I can find an alternative ISP that’s as good (man, it’s painful to say that) as my cable company. Comcast makes it so that you pretty much have to have cable to use their internet service. Well, you don’t HAVE to, but it’s more expensive if you don’t. Getting the internet service by itself costs about $10 more than if you get it with the basic cable package.
    Well played, Comcast.
