Pure Flix Streaming


I'm doing a month free trial of Pure Flix right now.  I really like that it's full of family friendly movies and shows that we can all watch together.  I can watch it my Fire Stick, phone, tablet, computer, etc.

The price is increasing for new subscribers on May 1.  It's currently 7.99 a month.  If you are interested in trying it, now would be a good time to try.

I got this e-mail today -

Thank you for being a loyal PureFlix.com member.

Beginning this week, you may notice our advertising indicating a price increase for newcomers as of May 1st.
However, because we highly value your loyalty to PureFlix.comyour price will not change as you continue to enjoy the best in our Faith & Family videos.
In fact, today would be a great time to tell family and friends that they too should start a free trial and lock-in the current low price before the May 1st price increase.

Ways to Save Money on TV


We haven't had cable since we have been married, almost 15 years.  For the most part I haven't missed it, but new technology has made it easier.  We do have an outside antenna so we can get most local channels.

Other ways to watch/stream tv and movies - The big thing to think about is how much data it uses and how fast is your speed.  We have the slowest/cheapest internet Armstrong has.  Only 1 month have we come close to our data usage.  They have since doubled our data & increased our speed.  It really hasn't been an issue for us.  If you have kids that are also streaming then maybe it would be.

Any of the options below can also be streamed on your phone, tablet, or laptop.

Amazon Prime - $99/year.  You can stream movies & get 2 day free shipping.  You can also just steam movies & tv for 8.99 a month or get Prime for 10.99 a month if you don't want to commit for a year.  You can try for a free month.

Netflix - price varies by how many devices you want on at the same time.  Around $9/month. Stream tv & movies.  no commericals.  You can try for free.

Hulu - Around $8/month  Big downfall for me - commericals.  You can also do $12 a month with no commercials.  They don't have a dedicated kids section so you have to pass a lot of questionable shows to find what you want.  You can try for free.  After that they keep sending emails to get another month free so you can usually get a few months free.

Sling - Basically like having cable.  I tried it free for a week & got a lot of the Indians playoff games that weren't on local channels.  They have plans for $20, $25, $40 a month depending on the channels you want.

Pure Flix - I'm doing a month free trial of Pure Flix right now.  I really like that it's full of family friendly movies and shows that we can all watch together.  I can watch it my Fire Stick, phone, tablet, computer, etc.  The price is increasing for new subscribers on May 1.  It's currently 7.99 a month.  If you are interested in trying it, now would be a good time to try.

I got a Amazon Fire Stick for $25 on Thanksgiving a few years ago.  I really like it.  I can stream my Amazon Prime through the stick.  I can also watch cable "app" channels.

My favorites so far DIY Network, Food Network, A&E, History, ESPN (including highlights of Sports Center from the day before), & HGTV.  You can watch older episodes through the tv with the Fire Stick.

You can also watch on a phone, tablet, or computer without subscribing to channel for free.  Not all episodes are available but enough for me for free.  Some of the shows have 60 seconds commercials for other cable shows.

There are also apps for network tv, but I haven't tried them because I typically don't watch network tv.

There are other options out there including Ruku & Apple tv.  I'm just commenting on what I have found to work for us.

What are your favorite ways to save money on tv.
