How To Save Money Streaming TV Shows
We don’t have cable.. like at all. I know to some people (people with cable) you’re probably thinking “Oh My God!” but it’s really not that bad… and for us even better than having cable.
We used to have cable. With every possible package you can imagine. We then got Netflix and Hulu (Netflix streams movies and older seasons of shows from the beginning to the last season that was on TV, current seasons aren’t available and Hulu has mainly current season shows with some movies and some complete series).
While I was pregnant, we were going through some financial problems and I kept saying we were going to cancel our cable put kept pushing it off. Finally, about a week before Lily was born I cancelled it and we’re never looking back.
There is a ton of kids shows on Netflix(they just recently stopped streaming Nick jr. shows but have made up for it with Disney shows) and they have tons of seasons of shows and movies for adults.
Hulu is mainly for the current season of shows. You can watch them the say after hey air. And during the summer time you can put your subscription on hold and not be charged because there is no new episodes on.
Hulu doesn’t have all of the network shows but most of the network websites have them online for free the next day too!
