Digital cable is nice--it looks great and sounds even better. Digital cable is, however, quite expensive, and it seems that the cost of it is rising all the time. Digital cable from Comcast, for example, can cost up to $60 as of 2010--and more if you want to watch Showtime, HBO or other premium channel options. Getting free digital cable is possible, and many people are making the switch to save money without turning off the cable.
Things You'll Need
- Broadband Internet Service (DSL or cable)
Get a free TVU network. This is the only website out there that is offering a way to watch digital cable television for free. It has live television from all over the world.
