    Here are some tips for handling television access in Hudson County. Rising cable bills, as high as $200+ a month, can make you wonder if it's time to cut the cord? I recently tested the waters myself and have now cut the cord - no more $245 monthly cable bill for me!

    First, you need to note what channels/shows/sports you want to watch. Since we are close to New York City, we can get basic channels, 2,4,5,7,9,11 & 13 with a Mohu antenna. The cost of the Mohu starts at $20 and its yours! I was able to get all the channels above with a Mohu mini in addition to about 50 other channels, including Cozzi, Decades, Ion, Telemundo and more with no monthly fee.

    Second, I bought a Roku for $30 (and again, it's yours) and was able to get additional channels such as, ESPN, HGTV, TBS, and more, again with no monthly fee. There is also a Firestick, Amazon TV, Playstation Vue and more, although I did not give them a test run.
    Available through the Roku was a Sling TV 7 day free trial, starting at $20 per month with a discount for Tmobile customers at $14 per month for the first 12 months. I used the free trial while I still had cable, just to make sure I could get all the channels and shows I wanted to watch. There are many other APPS available, but do your research.

    There was also a Hulu, two month free trial available on the Roku which I am currently testing through March, thereafter it would be $7 per month. I will probably not add Hulu, but will use the trial period. To be clear, with the Roku, Firestick or other devices, you need WiFi. So I have Wifi service at $50 per month. I need the Wifi anyway for laptop and other devices. Both the Mohu and Roku took about five minutes each to plug into the tv. This all ended up being a $181 per month savings for me ($2,172 a year)! I would rather use this "found money" on a vacation.

    So, if you live in Hudson County, save yourself some money! Do your research on each of the available devices. Determine which channels you can view for free on each, do your test run and free trials while you still have the comfort of cable and maybe you can cut the cord too!
