Keeping Up With With Television

The older I get, the more resigned I am to change. Television is just one example. Programming changes all the time, of course, and so does the hardware. Many new flat screen TV’s come with a USB port, which opens all sorts of possibilities.

It isn’t only the hardware and the programming that are changing. We now have a lot more ways to access the content we want, and in most cases, with a lot less expense. Hulu is just one possibility, (free), NetFlix lets you watch unlimited movies and content for just $7.99 a month, and with MLB TV, you can watch just about every major league baseball game for just $80 a year — streamed live, directly to your computer.

If you don’t want to watch TV on your computer, there are ways to get that content onto that giant flat screen of yours. You’ll need to read the full article online for specific, and seemingly easy directions, so I’ll just quote a summary of money-savings here.

Let’s say you…

  • Pay $7.99 a month to Netflix for your movies.
  • Buy three full seasons worth of your favorite cable series — about 13 episodes a season — at 99 cents a pop and $99 for an Apple TV box.
  • Watch your network shows for free on Hulu.
  • And for $80 a year, throw MLB.tv into the mix, so that that your husband can watch sports to his heart’s content.

That’s about $315 per year for a wide range of viewing.

That annual $1,300 cable bill is starting to sound pretty high about now, huh?
