I’d like to help you save money by canceling cable TV and replacing it with free and cheap alternatives. It’s called “cord cutting” and the techniques I present in this site are completely legal!
The average cable customer spends $100 a month on cable. That’s $1,200 per year for the rest of your life or about $60,000 in your lifetime! Why pay when you can watch many of the same shows for much less or free?
The solution to the ridiculous cost of cable and satellite TV is to switch to a FREE broadcast digital TV using an antenna like one of the ones below. If you live near or in a decent-sized metropolitan area, this can get you the network channels (ABC, CBS, NBS, Fox, WB) plus PBS and local stations with an inexpensive indoor antenna.
If you have an Internet connection, you can connect your TV to a device like Google Chromecast, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, or Apple TV box to get additional free and subscription TV and movie services. I explain all of this on DisableMyCable™.
Start with Free Broadcast Digital TV
Did you know that people in or near big cities can receive the major network channels (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, CW), plus PBS and local stations in Hi-Def for free? It’s called broadcast digital TV. I was able to get thirty channels total in Providence, RI and over 100 in Los Angeles, CA. It takes a little leg work to set it up, but I’ll guide you through it.
To see which channels YOU can get using an antenna, click the text below and enter your zip code.
You will see a map of your area. Wait a few seconds for the colored list of stations to appear on the left. You should be able to pick up the green and yellow channels with a good indoor flat antenna. The ones in orange will probably require an outdoor antenna. The list is not exact but will give you a ballpark idea of the number of channels you should be able to get.
If the stations you want are available, then keep going! If not, skip down to other options.
