Saving a $ Buck Part 3 on Cable

on Entertainment.....

Well when it comes to movie or tv watching I must say I pay for  (this...much...) ($0.00)...
Instead of using cable I cancelled it and I watch tv online or view my local channels.  My mom was at work a few days ago and a co-worker mentioned he cancelled his cable and using the Internet as his alternative.  Mom was so intrigued that she was ready to try it herself. 

Here's an example:

Mom pays $73 a month for cable and $50 for Internet on the go...  She loves watching Hgtv, her soaps, the news and other various shows.. 

1. Cancel the cable
2. Obtain home Internet and PC
    A.  There are a variety of providers that offer Internet service for as low as $19.99 a month (such as
Now that you have Internet and pc you are able to watch many shows online or on your local tv channels for a little of nothing... the pc can connect to your Lcd or Plasma tv plus you're able to watch dvd movies via the pc without needing a dvd player.

Money saving Internet sites (the ones I use most are bolded):

     You can watch 1,000's of shows and movies online for FREE! No
     downloading or subscriptions   

     With Neflix you can also watch 1,000's of movies instantly to your TV via PC or gaming console     
     Xbox, Wii, PS3 with prices starting at $4.99 a month.  There is no limit to how many movies you  
     can watch a month.

3.  There are a variety of other Internet sites that allow you to watch movies for free, with or 
     without subscribing  or just for a low rental fee such as: ---  --- and many others....

You can also buy Blu-Players that will allow you to watch

via wifi reception...

4.   Just by using your Internet connection to watch tv or movies is a great alternative than cable!   
      Many of the shows I like to watch on cable I can view directly from the website. 
my favorites I like to watch             Can be viewed On:

Leverage, Charmed, Dark Blue, The Closer

Secrets of a Stylist, Colorsplash, Design Star

Starz Movies                                           

Meet the Browns, House of Payne, R We There Yet

*If I miss an episode of my fav local shows like Or
The Event, Fringe, No Ordinary Family            their broadcasting channel

 5.  And finally you can always rent a movie from Redbox or the Blockbuster kiosks that are all over town.  You can find these bad boys everywhere McDonald's, Cvs, Walgreen's, Walmart, Gas fueling stations and more.  The best part I like about them is the price 1 whole buckeroo for 1 night... gotta love that!!

They also have free rentals too....for Redbox  try breakroom & Blockbuster try Monday (good on Monday's only)

I would love to hear what you are doing to reduce your TV entertainment?
