I just bot a TCL-Roku TV and so far only have my OTA antenna hooked up to it. Have close to 30 channels for FREE.

What do you have and what does it cost a month?

I have really basic cable($20) coupled to my $80/month really high speed internet for my 100% telecommute job.

My mother in law likes cable news and watches my children so well worth it.

I'm in transition myself. My last check to DirecTV got lost in the mail, and they cut off my service after otherwise not missing any payments in 14 years. So I said F U DirecTV. Going to try out Charter Spectrum TV Choice for $22/month for a while, plus YouTube Red that I already have. It will be nice to save ~$100 a month after kicking the DirecTV habit.

We have the cheapest satellite package and netflix. I find I rarely use the TV anyways, and just watch the odd netflix movie or show on my computer.

I have Netflix and Amazon Prime.

I take full advantage of family's vacation home/rental with every channel. I get every premium channel from that with a trick of logging in on cell network to the TV provider who knows your internet location does not have it but then hooking to wifi and using a Chromecast to watch all those apps.

Jail Broken Firestick and Netflix paired with my high speed internet for the living room --$70.00 a month. HD antenna on the roof for bedrooms -- bought it 3 years ago for $37.00 -- with it I get about 52 channels on a good day.

Even FREE OTA TV is mostly junk these days. I'm too old for most of it.

Had cable TV shut off over 4 years ago. Have antenna for local channels. They are in HD. Use a Roku with apps like Pluto TV, Tubi TV, etc. Local internet company offers 50 Mbps for $29.99 with a 2 year contract or $39.99 without it. They have started offering 100 Mbps now for $39.99 - 2 year contract.

Have several free channels on the Roku.

Plenty of content. Only thing I pay for the the ad free version of Hulu.
