Sharing is caring!

If you are looking for ways to save money – one of the easiest ways to save money is to shut off your cable. Pretty much anything you want to watch on TV can be found through an online service. Here are some of the options you have available to help save you money on your cable bill. Plus you shouldn’t miss many of your favorite shows!

  • Check out the network’s website – Check out the network’s website of your favorite shows. You will probably be surprised at all the free shows the networks have online.
  • Amazon Prime  – they have tons of shows and movies you can watch for free when you have Amazon Prime.
  • Hulu Plus – Get a 7 day free trial and it’s just $8 per month after that. There are  a ton of current shows available. You can even watch One Life to Live and All My children.
