We canceled our TV cable back in 2009 and now use an antenna to get the local channels. We live in central Oklahoma and get channels from both Tulsa and Oklahoma City including ABS, CBS, NBC, 2 PBS stations, local Fox, several Christian channels, 4 channels from ION and several others.
My husband heard about ROKU boxes, they run on the internet so they require either being hooked in your internet source or with wireless, we use wireless internet for ours. The boxes are a one -time purchase, I think ours was about $60 from Amazon, and then you own it. There are no monthly fees unless you have paid channels.
|This is our ROKU box and it's remote, that is a Santa Pez beside it so you can see how small the Roku is.|
|Roku offers lots of channels and most of them are free, a few require monthly subscription.|
|Roku has news channels, quite a few fitness channels and social network channels.|
|One of the free channels is Blip. The offer many independent shows, some are just quirky but many are very good.|
I really like some of the cooking shows.
