Several years ago we decided to say goodbye to cable. Yes it was a sad day but we needed to adjust our budget and cable was so expensive. Local channels were the only thing we had for a year until we decided it was time to bring back our favorite shows that we’ve missed. But there was one problem we didn’t want that hefty cable bill to show up again so we had to come up with an affordable solution.
After researching we came across the Google Chromecast Streaming Media Player. There were so many great reviews and features we loved about it and guess what? It was in our budget!! After setting it up and trying it out we could not get enough from movies, shows, live TV, YouTube and even our favorites photos streaming right from our TV. So we finally ditched cable for good and our wallet has thanked us. Wondering why you should cut cable and stream check out the reasons below.
