Cable Without Cable

I figured out a killer way to save on cord cutting. Philo costs $20/mo and offers “basic cable,” a service that Sling provides for $35 (though bit more conveniently – at least on my TV). Neither offer local channels, but if you live in a very few service areas, LoCast is an alternative which asks for donations ($5/mo). It has apps for AppleTV, Roku, Amazon and can be Chromecasted.

If you happen to be with T-Mobile, they’re offering a $10/mo rebate on Philo until the end of April. For a more complete/simpler solution, Youtube TV is great and can be locked in for $55/mo (if you’re with T-Mobile).
