3 New Choices For Saving Money On Television

how to get rid of your cable billCable television is quickly becoming obsolete. You can watch just about everything you want to watch on the internet. Even live shows are being streamed from the network websites. Everyone is opting for one or more streaming services and the good news is there are now even more affordable choices to choose from. They are:


This new streaming TV service is from Bell and will cost you $7.99 per month. If you have Bell services already, you might already have an account with CraveTV. It’s very similar to the Netflix model in that it has a directory of shows and movies which you can watch on demand. Crave offers many shows not available on Netflix, such as the hilarious Canadian comedy Letterkenny. You get your one-month free trial here as well, and you can cancel anytime to avoid the $7.99 fee for your second month. Check out Crave TV here.

Pluto TV

Pluto is an app that you can download to your desktop, smart TV or Handheld device. It’s absolutely free and has 75+ channels of live broadcast television. You have absolutely free access to sports channels, weather channels, news channels, and music channels. You’re not going to get your well-known television networks here but there is enough television on this free app to keep you entertained for hours on end. Right now the Smart TV app is not available on LG Smart TVs but updates to Pluto are coming out pretty quickly and one should be expected soon. Check out Pluto TV here.

YouTube TV

This new service has just started in the US, and should hopefully make its way to Canada fairly soon. It's currently offering a deal for US customers of $35/month, which gives you six accounts with access to streaming all the big television networks, live. ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX and more. You also get unlimited storage for your recorded shows using the built-in DVR. Like Netflix, you can watch on your television, your handheld device, or your computer. Once this service hits Canada, it will truly enable you to cut the cable cord for good. Check out YouTube TV here.

Last year around this time I was declined for vehicle financing. I was making more than I am now and had better stability in my job and address yet I was declined. I had no borrowing history. Credit cards sure but no installment payments showing on my report. Its next to impossible to get experience without having experience. Then I learnt about The Refresh Program. I signed up for a $2300.00 loan because in 3 years I want to get my own piece of land and $2300.00 will go a long way towards a down payment.

So not only am I saving for a house but I am building my credit too.

This year I was approved for financing through for auto financing and now I have a shiny new ride to cruise around in and an interest rate I can afford.

So I just wanted to say thank you. I would still be driving my ’92 saturn if it wasnt for the effect Refresh Financial has had on my credit report. ”
