How To Cancel Your Cable And Still Get Free Premium TV Using The Roku Player And The PlayOn App





Looking to cut the cable company cord and save money? Become a cord cutter by getting the PlayOn app for the Roku Streaming Player. This awesome app transcodes streams that are not fully compatible with the Roku (flash streams) into the Roku player to make a playable and watchable format. PlayOn has tons of free content that is not found on any other Roku channel. Therefore the PlayOn app for the Roku and Roku 3 make it ideal to use this type of device and service to completely cancel your expensive cable bill. This is a total “no brainer” as spending $70 to $200 dollars every month to watch mind numbing reality shows makes NO sense to us. We asked ourselves “Why are we paying hard earned dollars to watch drug commercials intertwined with bad TV shows that were only created to contain in content advertising?” (Hint: American Idol = Coca-Cola commercial) To us, this seems like an insult, so we took the time and killed our cable once and for all. We now save $2500 a year and we are happier as we have a better choice when it comes to what we really want to watch. Full details on the available channels for PlayOn here.

Most of the app channels require a subscription. Hulu again, only U.S. citizens can get and not canadians or anyone else. VPN’s are detected by Hulu and you cannot join and plus you still need to sign up for Hulu to get the channel working which if using a VPN, Hulu will not allow anyone to join. Other main channels like HBO and others will acquire a service provider to activate it. There is a monthly subscription to PlayOn and it isn’t free. If I left anything out please continue to inform others.
