That was my favorite part: Using your cell phone as a remote :) Well, for you guys tons of options if you don’t rock an old-ass TV like we do ;) You can go the Blu-ray route if that’s your bag, the Roku route (didn’t look into much but I know some of you readers use and love them), or the cheaper – and more effective route, in my opinion – the Chromecast way. Then you work yourself away from cable and instant savings!
Then there was mistake #3: waiting two months to open it up and try connecting everything.
Meaning, I didn’t realize it wasn’t compatible until it was way too late to return it, thereby losing a cool $87 on the spot, ugh…
Simply use an Android phone, tablet, i Phone®, i Pad®, Mac or Windows laptop, or Chromebook to cast your favorite entertainment and apps right to the big screen.” “Hell yeah! “I’ve been looking for a new way to stream internet on my TV cuz my dang Blu-ray sucks balls.
Send me one to test and then I’ll give one away too! I actually HAD a newer TV I picked up while pimping out my blogger lair a few years back! It’s 1/10th of the size, but hell – I might actually be able to pull something off for once! A one-time purchase for forever streaming of internet/tv/media etc on your TV w/out any monthly fees – huzzah!
Last article we went over how to get home phone service for practically free by using Ooma, and this time around we’re tackling the heated Cable/TV part of the telecom trifecta. It’s large, paid off, 10 years old and absolutely beautiful.
And just like with our home phone line, I unfortunately screwed myself multiple ways in this department too – one of which out of frugality itself! Except when it’s not and your hacking attempts go to $hit.Anyways, the point is we’re not ready to get rid of TV’s luxuries all the way yet, but we are wanting to scale back and save some dough in the process.First, find a way to get Netflix/internet onto our TV like all other modern rock stars.Oops.) So I looked around and landed on the highly rated Sony BDP-S5100 3D Blu-ray that had built in Wi-Fi for .03 – on sale from 9.99 which it’s currently at. Not because it’s a bad product or anything (the reviews are great! ) and rocks HDTV surprisingly enough, but it never occurred to me that it had long met it’s prime w/ technology.I of course knew it was ancient, but who looks at the ports in the back when buying this stuff?We could move our smaller TV down into our main room if we wanted to have access to everything, but that kinda sucks (first world problems, right? Orrrrr we can cave in and pick up a new sexy TV to then stream everything to and slowly de-tach ourselves from Cable, but pending a change in the Mrs’ seas, that’s pretty out of the equation right now too.
