We Sure Don't Miss Cable


With the high prices we were paying for cable, we finally just threw up our hands and said, "Forget it! No more!" We LOVE Amazon Prime! I do have to tell you that I am an Amazon Associate and I will make a small commission if you sign up through my link. But that is totally up to you! (Although I would appreciate it! LOL)

Anyway, our cable bill was over $100 and it just kept going up and finally, back in January, we said forget it - no more. We currently use Amazon Prime and Netflix. (I am not an affiliate for Netflix, but I do want you to be able to click on the links and get there if you are interested) For the most part, I think we use our Amazon Prime more, but I know there are some shows that I do watch on Netflix too.

With the money that we save each month, we do buy a show or two each month on Amazon Instant Video. We probably spend about $50 on Amazon. Below you will find a sample of some of the shows that we watch regularly. Plus, I use Swagbucks, Perk TV and Bing Rewards to GET some FREE Amazon Gift Cards! How cool is that? (I will tell you all about them on another day.)

How do we connect? All different ways! Sometimes we use the Amazon Fire TV Stick, sometimes we use the Amazon Fire TV (that includes a game controller). We also use the Wii, XBox, XBox One, Cell phones, Tablet - all different ways! My favorite is the Amazon Fire TV Stick.



What do we watch? Again, there is a wide variety of what we watch. I am going to share some of the series that we watch below, with some information on where you can find them. Netflix is free with your streaming membership, Amazon Prime is free with your Amazon Prime Membership, Amazon Instant Video is a digital license for the show. When we are watching a current season, the latest episode becomes available the following morning (without commercials - so nice LOL)
