TV loving people, How to give up cable?


We are dropping cable after only having it for 4 months. We got it because we are avid followers of many tv series. However the cost does not seem rational to me ($70 a month). With netflix and other services is there a way of still getting all the important shows without cable? Are there streaming services which offer same day viewing? Some of the networks our shows are on are basic local channels so those aren't an issue, but AMC and discovery are a must have. Options?

    you can find lots of fun channels for Roku, many are free. They tend to have obscure and classic stuff not current, but still fun to check out.

    If you have android devices and dont particularly care about the not legal aspect of streaming shows and movies, download an app called Showbox by searching it up on Google.
