Although I’m not a fan of the Sling TV app for Android, I think the concept of Sling TV is great. In fact, I’d be glad to give Sling TV another try if they fix their app. And for those who want cable without all the cost, Sling TV is still a good way to go (as long as you’re willing to use a crappy app until they fix it); and the way cable companies are complaining about cable alternatives instead of changing with the times shows what a good idea it is to get rid of cable.
My most recent cable alternative has been HBO Now and Hulu+. Both apps are well designed, play well with Chromecast and offer an array of shows and movies to watch. Between HBO Now and Hulu+ (along with the occasional Red Box and Play store rentals) I feel like I’m not missing out on anything. Also keep in mind that you can cast anything from the Chrome browser to your Chromecast.
What are you waiting for? Get rid of your cable company and save some money.
