Ready To Cut The Cord?

satellite TV iconA growing number of homes are getting rid of cable and opting for streaming media. But with all the options out there, which combination is most cost-effective and gets you the programming you want? Join us as we deep dive into the world of streaming video and our “plan B,” satellite TV (yes, believe it or not, satellite has features, especially when it comes to recording and playback, that the streaming world hasn’t caught up to yet). And in some instances, buying half a dozen individual streaming services will end up costing you more than simply getting a bundled satellite subscription with promotions.

Whatever you choose, we bring you the latest gadgets to smartly display your content in the highest quality (and at the best price) possible. Check out our satellite and cable TV area for the scoop.

If you do end up going with video streaming, you’ll want to make sure your internet is up to par with the required streaming speeds and equipment. Learn about what you’ll need in our internet space.
