NBC, CBS, ABC, UHF, and PBS were our choices when I was a kid. Today we have a hundreds of channels, most not worth spending time on. ESPN has five or so different channels, if you watched sports you have a lot of options. But, for the rest of us, we have a plethora of channels that will entice you to buy, and sometimes you’ll land on a program that will captivate your interest. Alas, they’re hard to find.

There’s a new way to watch television, streaming on the Internet. In December 2013 we called DirecTV and told them to go fly a kite. They raised our rates of super basic to $80 a month. My husband was perfectly happy to go back to watching broadcast TV. I petitioned for a Roku. I didn’t know how it worked, but I was willing to try and I’m loving how we watch TV now. We use Chrome Cast ($35 one time) in the kitchen, and the Roku ($100 one time) in the bedroom. Now we’re deciding between streaming netflix or Hulu Plus (each at $8 a month). 

No sports, no infomercials. Ta da!
