Do you have it in you to cut the cord?If you have an iPad, at least most of the work is done for you. With help from a few subscription services and accessories, you may never feel like having cable again.
All you need to get started is a television with an HDMI port.
One of the go-to names in streaming media, Netflix has loads of movies and television ready and waiting for you to stream to your iPad and mirror onto your television. Unlimited streaming costs $7.99 per month.
The Amazon Instant Video app offers Netflix-like functionality, getting you access to thousands of your favourite movies and television shows. If you're an Amazon Prime member, then you have free access to a majority of the content!
Aereo is a service that lets you watch live over-the-air TV on your iPad and lets you record shows as well. This is all possible by 'renting' one of several small HD antennas connected to a data centre for $12 per month.
The service is expanding and will soon be available in other cities.
