If you can use a smart phone, you can get rid of cable and start streaming. Streaming TV is a booming industry right now. New alternatives to cable are popping up every day.
I will show you the easiest ways to watch TV without giving up your favorite shows.

Then, you can use this information to make informed decisions for yourself.
