Then, maybe, just maybe, my wife would be singing a new tune with those dollars in her pockets? I looked on Amazon for ways to hook up my TV to the internet, and came across Name Your Link" target="_blank"a slew of options.
There was Roku, Sungale, Apple TV, Amazon Fire and a ton more which I eventually got inundated with until I noticed that many Blu-ray DVD players now come with built-in wifi? I had never heard of this as we never watch DVDs, but if you can stream the internet on it at the same time while saving that money I was ’bout it ’bout it.
Of course, I can still hawk it and probably recoup most of that money since it retails for 0 again, but still. But wait for mistakes #4, #5, #6, and #7 first: I thought I could outwhit myself and find a way to jigger around different cords and contraptions to see if that would save this debacle.
So first bought a coaxial cable to see if that would do the trick (the Blu-ray and my TV both had slots for it) but of course that didn’t work – you need HDMI! I should have stopped there and ate the loss, but unfortunately I went on…
The second step – call up Verizon and simply ask them to cut channels out and lower our bill (Hah! We figured if we could find a way to substitute our shows/movies over time by using the internet instead of Verizon, we’d save a nice stash of cash like many of you are already doing and have the best of both worlds going on.
I can live without them no doubt about it, but I’d be lying if I said I don’t enjoy my reality shows and HBO/Showtimes to catch some of my favorite series.
Shows like Game of Thrones, Homeland, True Detective, The Leftovers, and more recently Ray Donovan.
