Googling how to do something is a lot of effort?!?! Searching a TV guide or reading what is on at what time takes just as much effort, if not more.
Honny - If the tv you're using has "built-in" FIRE, try an external FireTV device (if you have one). There have been several upgrades to the Fire device and so you may get better connectivity if you use a newer version. I got my newest one for $14.99 on a special I saw on FB Marketplace.
I cut the cord several years ago and finally convinced my sports fanatic husband to also. it was the WWII/Hitler content, along with sports, he had to have. There was a bit of a learning curve for him, and he had to get used to a different way to search for something to watch, but so far so good. He has even started to try to convince our parents to do it! I just roll my eyes as he was auto NO for eons!
We both have Roku on our respective TV, and 'free tv' as he calls it (read antenna). He has Sling (a skinny bundle) to accommodate the sports and history stuff. I was hoping to go to Hulu live, but Sling added MLB and that caboshed that. Even with Sling we cut our tv bill from $170 a month to $40. A good site to learn or keep up with trends is: [www.cordcuttersnews.com] . I read it daily.
We also cut the cord with Ma Bell. $45 a month for basic phone was entirely to much! We still have the kitchen wall phone with the LONG cord! I went with OOMA, a VOIP. Bought a used device from eBay and have been very happy with it. You pay only taxes for the service. Ours is about $4. We haven't had any call clarity issues with the phone, computers, tablets and Roku all running at the same time on the internet. I have Xfinity 60mpbs. Since we have their internet, I'm about ready to try their cell service for him. He also is a Neanderthal as he doesn't have a cell phone. It's also taxes, unless you use more than 100gb of data, which I doubt he would, then it's $12 gb. Even at $12 that's not bad. It uses Xfinity WiFi hotspots and Verizon. You have to already have their internet.
