A World of FREE TV

For years, broadcast television was supported only by advertising as we all received the signals with rooftop antennas and sometimes with rabbit ears. When cable came along and started making money off of providing a tv signal, broadcasters were mum at first and then demanded a piece of the action and cable bills starting going up. Cable added many channels and monthly bills often were sizeable. Streaming video over the internet was once thought of as a novelty, but became a real business when internet bandwidth improved. Now, anything you can get on cable is available online through a computer, smartphone, or a streaming player. FREE options are almost endless, quality is generally excellent, and the programming is ad supported.
