Once you cut the cord to your cable or satellite tv company, you will want to take full advantage of your freedom. This list is up to date right now, but you’ll want to ask around, and also keep abreast of the latest and greatest free (or almost free) streaming services. I am very wary of questionable sites, so my list is pretty tame.
Pluto TV – We use this service daily at our house. It’s completely free (you do watch ads) and has some pretty neat shows and movies that you probably forgot existed. It also boasts LIVE TV channels, which is pretty cool.
Sony Crackle – Crackle gets amazing reviews. It allows the viewer to watch high quality tv and movies. It has ads, but they are pretty quick. Check it out.
tubi TV – tubi offers a lot for free – once again, you will need to watch their ads, but they are brief. Pretty cool site with no sign-in required.
Hulu (Basic) – Hulu has several subscription plans. One is Live, which includes access to live tv. However, if you are on a budget, or already have other paid subscriptions and just want options, the basic Hulu is pretty darn cool. It is currently only $1.99/month for the first year, then $5.99/month thereafter. Hard to beat.
YouTube – We can’t ever forget the site that started it all. YouTube has a lot of free content – and you just have to watch (or suffer quietly) through their ads. Take another look at YouTube if you haven’t lately. Here’s a video that outlines the top nine free movies.
