Faux Cable TV : Where do you watch?
Several years ago we turned off our cable tv for a savings of over $800 a year! Haven’t missed it a single day since its been gone mostly because for the most part I have found pretty much everything I used to watch on cable on the internet. So since people ask me all the time where I find shows I thought I would pass along some of my favorite links.
http://Netflix.com *family favorite
Rarely but http://hulu.com
Most TV shows offer websites also that let you view video directly. Live is rare to find online but I found that http://lifetvcafe.com has the best selection that I have found so far. I am a crime junkie and a news junkie so much of the urls I have hook me up with my favorite crime shows and the news. Oh don’t forget that a lot of your local news channels are now online streaming too! At least ours is and we are podunk for sure! LOL
As a warning here. Its been my experience to never NEVER ever EVER download “software” that says it will let you view tv on your computer. There is no need for it since most everything is loaded via your browser. Most of those are just spyware. If you do have something you love feel free to share it but again not my recommendation to download anything to view video on your computer. Apps are a bit different but again make sure you know who and where you are getting them from. Kindle makes it easy since you can view flash but I don’t know what the options are on the ipad. I know its limited for my ipod touch. So basically I avoid any website that has me add any plugins or download anything. Just sayin!
Don’t forget there is also http://youtube.com *family favorite and http://ustream.com and http://lifestream.com Really you can find just about anything online if you look for it. I found full movies and TV episodes on youtube that I couldn’t find anywhere else too! LOL Gotta love youtube.
So that is a few of my favs. How about you? Where do you watch your favorite tv shows and movies online?
