I have installed Crackle, Popcorn Flix, and Tubi. They are all free and have some movies that I have never seen.
I also plan on trying Sling TV on their free 14 day test plan. $20 a month might not be too bad. I will give it a try.
Being retired, I was trying to keep costs down. I did buy an antenna, DVD and Roku3 for my TV watching. These so far have been one-time-costs.
My Verizon internet connection is costing about $33 a month. Most people forget about that cost when talking about TV stuff. So right now that is my ONLY monthly cost. For $47 additional a month, Verizon will provide me with 200+ cable channels, but I have not signed up for that. Oh, I occasionally rent DVD's from Red Box. Mostly in the winter time. I think they are a pretty good deal.
That's a good price on Internet. At least, compared to many locations.
Sling brings me sports, but nothing else. I can find much of the other content I want cheaper elsewhere, outside of college football season.
I'm a fan of Hulu. While not free, it's a bargain as a replacement for cable. For what it would cost me to put up an antenna and tower (I'm far from stations) Hulu allows me to not deal with that one-time large expense.
I used to use the Red Box app on my phone to find a kiosk that had what I wanted and order it. I've now dropped DVDs entirely, but it was useful for a while.
I enjoy Pub-D-Hub for older movies, shorts, and TV shows and other old-time content. It usually brings a smile to my face, seeing Rice Krispies or Coke commercials from my childhood.
