7 Ways to Help You Kick the Cable to the Curb

Not long ago, having a television in your home was almost a requirement for every American family. Now, many households are giving up the TV (or just the cable) for various reasons. Some want to save money, some are unhappy with the quality of programming, and still others want to avoid the constant barrage of commercial advertisements.

If you are interested in giving up your TV (or your cable subscription) but you have a few shows that you just can’t stand to miss, there are several options for you. Some are free, some are not, but all are legal alternative ways to enjoy TV.


1. Netflix. Yes, it seems cliche to put Netflix at the top of the list. The fact is, though, that their services are affordable, reliable, and now provide streaming video from the site.

2. Worldwide Media Project. A site providing streaming video stations from around the world. It gives users the ability to suggest new stations. The selection is somewhat limited at this point, but the site has great potential.

3. Fancast. A great site that offers full-length TV shows, movie clips, and trailers.

4. MyEasyTV. Over 3000 internet TV channels.

5. Surf The Channel. A website that scours the internet to bring you the best in internet TV. The best part: they refer all would-be donations to Cancer Research because “they need the cash.” Aww.

6. Network TV websites. Many networks offer online versions of their first-run shows right after they air on TV.

7. Joost. Ah, Joost. The internet community is at odds over this free TV site - you either love it or you hate it. Joost is the lovechild of Kazaa and Skype, and will soon be bringing you shows from several major networks.

There are many more out there, so let us know - how do you get your free TV fix?
