    view movies The timing of the power surge was unfortunate because the whole family was all set for movie night My husband descended into the basement and hastily searched through his big bag of transformers and what not that he s saved from every appliance we ve ever owned Luckily he found a power adapter that worked even though it wasn t an exact match To the delight of the kids and myself movie night continued This was a couple of months ago and instead of calling for a new power adapter we continued to use the temporary fix The only problem was that it was causing the Roku to need rebooting every couple of days which it never needed before My husband appointed our 7 year old to be in charge of this and that actually worked pretty well until now Technically the Roku unit s still working but I think using the wrong power adapter has taken its toll on it so we ve finally decided to buy a new one The good news is it looks like they are cheaper than the 99 one we bought several years ago The bad news is there are now three different units to choose from so we ll need to do some research To be continued Filed Under Uncategorized 11 Comments December 2010 Update Posted on December 15 2010 by admin It s been way too long since out last post but we ve blocked off some time and have a lot of new things to blog about Due to a few new cool services and devices its even easier for us to watch free Internet based content on our TV and even our phone And with just about every other bill rising it feels great not to pay 150 month for cable As we blogged about last year we used the money we saved to buy a flatscreen TV and a Nintendo Wii This year we decided to improve our cable free setup by subscribing to HuluPlus and purchasing an Ipad We re also about to upgrade our trusty original model Roku with one of the new models that are currently being discounted for the holidays Over the next week or two we ll post more about our current setup and answer some of the more common questions that we receive If you have any questions or comments please feel free to post them below and we ll do our best to answer them Filed Under Cable alternatives digital broadcast tv Intro Technology Television 19 Comments Canceling Cable March 2010 update Posted on March 16 2010 by admin It s been over a year and a half since we originally canceled cable Here s a quick update on what s new On July of 2008 we wrote a blog post comparing the costs of keeping cable with buying a 50 TV each year and tossing it in a dumpster and created a simple calculator to see how much cable TV really costs We also launched a free showfinder tool which shows how to watch your favorite shows without cable TV A lot has changed since we started this blog The digital transition has taken place Hulu com is on it s way to becoming a household word And we ve found even more ways to watch our favorite shows without cable We re amazed at all of the attention our site has been receiving and appreciate all the recommendations Here s what s new since our last post Our current setup Main TV We took some of the money we saved by canceling cable and purchased a 50 flatscreen TV for our family room It was a good feeling since it cost less than what we would have paid for about 7 months of cable Best of all it has a built in over the air tuner so we now receive free broadcast HD programming with a picture quality that is superior to our old cable signal For movies We re using a Roku player in combination with a basic Netflix account This lets us watch thousands of movies and shows for free using Netflix s free streaming service kind of like zero cost pay per view If a very recent movie isn t available we usually get it by DVD via Netflix Another nice thing about the Roku is that it lets us rent current movies from Amazon s Video on Demand Service typically 3 99 and watch them on our TV We ended up canceling our Tivo service and instead we connected our laptop to the TV using a HDMI cable and watch our favorite shows on Hulu com The only downside is that we can t fast forward through commercials but the nice thing about Hulu is most commercial breaks are 30 seconds vs 2 minutes or more on broadcast TV Bedroom We pulled the TV out of our bedroom and use our widescreen laptop an old 15 HP to watch TV in bed via Hulu com Portable In addition to the widescreen laptop we have an inexpensive Netbook which weighs about 3 pounds and lets us watch Hulu com Netflix Instant and Itunes anyplace in the house We also take this with us on vacations and use it instead of a portable DVD player What we are working on In the next few posts we ll try to answer some of the most common questions we re asked How to watch Hulu programming on a TV Watching sports coverage without cable TV New devices which let you watch movies and TV over the Internet We re also in the process of updating our Showfinder tool to reflect the new programming which is now available If you have any questions or suggestions for future articles please leave a comment for us Thanks Filed Under Uncategorized 19 Comments Cable TV alternatives one year update Posted on August 28 2009 by admin

    the sum of 28 00 to 32 00 in December of 91 and then raised it again to 35 00 in January of 92 I called to cancel my service and the cable company tried to convince me to keep my service and complained that due to re regulation of cable they had to do this I asked them what their excuse was for December 91 because it was un regulated back then No response They gave me a grace period until April which gave me two more months of Mystery Science Theatre 3000 and when that ended I cancelled Cable rate increase problem SOLVED I took the money I saved went to Radio Shack and bought a standard set of VHF rabbit ears and a bow tie stack antenna for UHF and they worked great even when TV was just analog I will now let you in on a dirty secret the cable company won t tell you I am a ham radio operator and one day I was talking to another ham over my mobile radio He was a broadcast engineer and he told me how the cable company manipulates the color balance and as a result the picture quality suffers in comparison to over the air TV I don t know for sure but I suspect it may be that the cable company does this so that they can squeeze more channels into the limited bandwidth of their cable runs Well enough of that I really didn t miss very much because most of the best programming is still on over the air TV Accepting perhaps The Sopranos and the occasional good made for cable movie Still those are now available from Netflix and Hulu It s important to note here that free TV is not really free If you buy any marketed product you are already paying for free TV when you go shopping So you might as well take advantage of what you have already paid for Paying twice for the same over the air programming because you have cable makes no sense at all unless you live far out from the city where you can t receive the signal This was the original reason cable companies came into being They did not offer any better service Today there are translators devices that repeat the signal so that people in places to remote to receive the original signal can receive them Translator stations in the U S are given call signs which begin with a W or K respectively east or west of the Mississippi River as with regular stations followed by a channel number and two serial letters for each channel The first stations on that channel are AA AB AC and so on Television channels are always two digit from 02 to 67 Today I use my UHF bow tie antenna exclusively for my widescreen digital LCD HDTV The reception is perfect and all the major stations get full bars It s like
