We cut the cord last year. And it has been ok. Amazon Prime and a Roku streaming player give us lots of viewing options. We also have a Channel Master DVR+ digital DVR with which we can record shows from over-the-air (OTA) channels, which is what we do 95% of the time. It downloads schedule info for 2 weeks for each channel via a wifi connection to your home network, so you have a nice channel guide to browse what’s coming up. There are a surprising number of OTA channels which we can get at our house, the majority of them are HD. You can enter your location at antennaweb.org and they’ll tell you what OTA channels you might be able to get where you live.
I can get my Seahawks fix by paying for Tune-in Premium month-to-month during the football season for live game audio broadcasts.
It’s all good.
But today we buried our TV. It died a slow death. I wonder how long it will take to fill this space. 🙂

Congratulations. I wanted hear more. Did you scream, “I’m TV free?”
🙂 as of tonight we are back on business! Watching Purdue play in the sweet 16.
Do you just watch on your laptop screen or a monitor?
Hi Teri! We watch on our tv usually, but it stopped working recently. We have a new one now and are back in business. I learned that most new tvs are “smart” and bundle their own version of streaming software in the tv. So we don’t need our old Roku streaming box in our new setup. We could watch streamed content on our laptops as well, though, via Amazon prime video.
