If you went with Verizon for Internet, you could use rabbit ears to get local channels if that would suffice for TV. In my area I can get 17 channels with rabbit ears. I live in a sizable metropolitan area. Of course you wouldn't get any of the cable-only channels that way, but given your budget, it would seem like a possibility. You can buy rabbit ears for $40 to $50, and of course it's just a one time deal with no monthly fee.
I hope I'm in the right forum. Please bear with me. I live in a highrise building where the realtors have a contract with Comcast Cable. We are STUCK with using them. Verizon Fios is not available here, (would not pay to have cables put in), nor are we allowed to have the little satellite dishes set up by or outside our windows for Dish TV. Many here are seniors or disabled on fixed income. I am homebound disabled and can not afford to pay for cable and constantly behind long enough to keep paying something on my bill to barely keep from my services being disconnected. I need my internet so I can pay my bills by selling items on eBay and Etsy. (Can't make a living, but the extra $ barely get me by month to month.
I can get internet services using Verizon, but then no TV, if I stop using Comcast. Can anyone suggest alternatives where I can get cable another way? I have been trolling Google trying to find answers and it's just a confusing mess at this point for me to put together a way around this without paying a lot of money.
Any suggestions? Wish there would be dishless satellite TV now. I have a Blue Ray box given to me. Or would a monthly subscription to NetFlix for example with a plug in for my TV maybe? I need help! Anything would be better than what my monthly Comcast bill is. I can afford the internet, but anything else would have to be a rock bottom cost. Thanks for helping, sorry about the long post.
