I enjoy occasionally watching quality content and sports on television but I’ve been without traditional cable for many years. I also happen to enjoy technology and I have owned and tested almost every type of set top device that exist (Apple TV, Roku, FireTV). I’m constantly perfecting and tweaking my setup so feel free to come back as I still update this post regularly. It is possible get almost all content in full HD, including live TV and sports for free or much less than you are currently paying for cable!
Also, check out the updated 2014 version of the post!
The first two Questions you need to ask yourself are:
- What content is most important to me?
- How much do I want to spend on content?
- (And Maybe) Do I even have enough time to watch all the free content out there?
To get access to the best content you need:
- Digital Television w/ Tuner
- High Speed Internet Connection (5Mbs+ Recommended)
Streaming Box of Some Kind (see bottom for detailed list and more info):
My updated suggestions only include three steaming boxes. Why? Because they are the best. They have everything we need. I always suggest buying used if possible and amazon “more buying choices” because buying used ‘like new’ can often save you a few bucks!
