Many people think that when moving into an apartment, they have to set up cable, or they’ll miss out on all of their favorite TV shows. But guess what? It’s possible to survive without cable. You can still keep up with your beloved characters without spending money each month. Here are a few ways to save money and watch TV for free:


With Hulu, you can stream almost any movie or TV show that you would like right to your laptop or television screen. And the best part is, there’s no monthly subscription. (Unless you would like to upgrade to Hulu Plus). It has all of the popular TV shows you could ever want, including “Grey’s Anatomy,” “The Mindy Project,” Golden Globe winner “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “Law & Order Special Victims Unit,” “Family Guy,” and so many more. With Hulu, you also get webisodes, trailers, documentaries, clips and behind-the-scenes footage.

To make your TV and movie watching experience even more convenient, you can add your favorite shows and videos to your queue so you can easily access them whenever you want.

Network Websites

Did you miss out on the latest episode of “Modern Family” or “How I Met Your Mother?” Don’t sweat it–you can head to the network’s website where they’re streaming all of the newest episodes of most of their shows just one day after they air on TV. Most of the major networks have full episodes right online for your convenient entertainment.
