Save Huge Money using the Roku® Streaming Player - an Alternative to Cable TV
I have finally found an inexpensive alternative to cable TV by using my existing internet connection and a Roku® streaming media box.
The cost of living just keeps going up and up with no slow down in sight. So, now I have decided to do something about it and find an alternative to satellite and cable TV. I've been a satellite TV subscriber for years now and have also subscribed to cable TV as well. Both services offer many TV show options but for a premium price. The thought of paying $100.00 month or better for TV is insane. I barely watch it! The extent of my TV viewing is usually local TV channels, some ocassional informational shows and a movie or two. In a years time I will spend approximately $1200.00 for an enormous number of TV channels that I never watch. I'm sure all of us could use $1200.00 on something else like a vacation or paying off our homes.
Back in 2009 I bought a Blu-Ray DVD player and found it had capabilities of streaming media wirelessly through a router over the internet. It included internet sources such as Netflix and YouTube. Pretty cool for watching short videos and movies but didn't quite provide a all around alternative to cable TV.
Skip forward to 2013...
With the advances in internet service and streaming media services available today, the TV viewing options almost endless. A whole slew of FREE TV is available over the internet - legally! I started doing some more research and came across the Roku® Streaming Player . The Roku® is a small yet very functional device that streams media content from an internet connection either wirelessly or wired. Roku® provides several different streaming options depending on your personal preference and needs.

It's easy to watch hundreds of free TV channels and have no more nagging cable TV bills.
Here's how I eliminated my cable TV bill.
- Stop your Satellite or Cable TV subscriptions
- Purchase the Roku® Streaming Player
- Get a digital TV antenna
That's it! With the Roku® and a digital TV antenna you will have access to local digital TV stations and with the Roku® you will have access to hundreds of free TV channels just like you would if you had satellite or cable TV. See the video below
