Bad news. The TV landscape is changing unlike anything since cable took over from broadcast. Virtually every cable network is now producing “original content”, which is only available to subscribers. Yeah, HBO has been doing that for 50 years, but now EVERYONE is doing it – Amazon, Netflix, Hulu, etc. Unless you’re willing to pay $300 a month to subscribe to all these various $5-15 per month networks, you will be missing many shows – some of the very good.
Good news – there are several FREE streaming services out there. These are places that give you shows for free. Yes, you do have to have WiFi to get most of them, but you can watch the shows on your TV, computer, or mobile phone. Not the best selections in the world, but, hey, what do you expect for free. And there’s actually some pretty good stuff available. OK, it’s mostly old TV series and old movies, but still better than most stuff on free broadcast TV.
A couple of these are available from your local library. Yes, folk, most larger city libraries offer a free streaming video service to anyone who has a library card. And almost no one even knows this exists! TV addicts everywhere rejoice! 8->
