Deciding to “cut the cord” does not necessarily require doing without some of your favorite networks and programming.
The Viewing Options page provides you with information about your programming options. These options include installing an antenna to receive your local broadcast stations. Digital technology allows a station to carry multiple sub-channels in its broadcast stream, providing you with additional available channels.
You may also view the content from an online provider as an alternative to a cable or satellite subscription, be used to supplement the channels already in your cable/satellite package or complement the local stations you currently receive through your antenna.
Most modern televisions are designed to easily accept inputs from multiple sources (for example, through coax, cable and satellite systems, game consoles, and more). Choosing a different programming source simply requires choosing a different input source in the TV’s menu then viewing the programming available on that source.
The sites below also examine the wide range of programming alternatives options that are available from online providers and advise you on the approximate cost of these services. Use the real-world information these links provide to become a more fully informed consumer.
