Confessions of a Cable-Free TV Addict

By Just Heather |

I have been counting down to this day for months! I’ve been sitting here for hours, watching the Olympics Opening Ceremony. For the next 16 days, I will eat, sleep, and breathe Olympic coverage.

Without cable.

Since the best of the Olympics is on network television, it’s especially easy to watch without paying for cable. But, I have to admit to being completely addicted to a lot of cable shows, too. I watch sports, dramas, comedies, DIY shows — Hi, my name is Heather, and I’m addicted to television.

Here are 7 simple (and mostly free!) ways to watch TV without cable:

      Ooh, good catch! I should have said free and cheap – editing now! The full Netflix service isn’t free, but they do offer free trials. The streaming service is less than $10 per month.
