Myth 2: I won’t save money.

Fact: You’ll probably save a lot.

Cable providers make you sign up for all sorts of channels you don’t care about and pay for bundled services you don’t use. Instead, make a list of channels you watch and then find the right streaming services.

Yes! 

Yes. Several streaming providers offer live TV, and a few also include local TV stations. Some popular options are Hulu + Live TV, YouTube TV, and DirecTV Stream.

Streaming depends less on the age of your TV and has more to do with the types of connections it has. If your TV has an available HDMI port, most streaming devices will work with it.

Many providers, like Netflix and Hulu, require a paid subscription for unlimited access to newer movies and tv shows.

Some ad-supported providers like Tubi TV and IMDB allow free on-demand streaming of movies and shows that include advertising.

There are also apps that provide on-demand movie rentals. Rather than a monthly subscription, you rent à la carte.

The best part about streaming is that you can pick and choose from all these streaming options to get exactly what you want, when you want it, without paying for bundled services you don’t want.
