6. I have Consumer Cellular for cell phone service. unlimited talk and text plus

a small data package @ $35/month.

Spectrum (formerly Time Warner) internet with 400 mbps (200 wifi) for $50/month. No data caps. You need at least 5 mbps for most streaming services and 10-20 mbps to avoid buffering.

After that choose your streaming services. I have Amazon Prime, Netflix, CBS All Access and a news streaming service. About $30/month. They all offer a week to a month free trials.

I do not own a TV. Everything is streamed through my computer onto a 27 inch monitor and a wireless keyboard is my remote.

If you have a TV with an HDMI port you can get a stick computer for about $100 and a mini keybaard for $15.

With this you can stream a multitude of ad supported services like TUBI for free.

I don't have time to watch all the stuff I want to. Hate live TV. Everything is out there if you know where to look and it plays on YOUR schedule.
