Cord-cutting is such a smart move. But if you’re really looking to cut costs, think about this: Why pay for a streaming service with a live option when broadcast channels are literally free?
If you’re content with live streaming The Bachelorette or sports on CBS or ABC, there’s another option for you. The Fire TV Recast is a DVR (yes, those are still a thing) that lets you watch or record live over-the-air TV with no monthly fees, and Prime members can get it for $100 off today.
The Fire TV Recast lets you make the most of those broadcast channels that everyone can access for free. But you’ll need a signal to receive those channels, which comes in the form of an HD antenna (don’t worry, they’re like $20). It can be set up anywhere in your home, preferably on a window near the TV.
To access your content and enable Alexa, you’ll also need a Fire TV device. Ask Alexa to change the channel, search for shows, schedule recordings, and more. If you’re not at home but simply can’t miss that baseball game, you can watch your shows or live TV even from anywhere via the Fire TV app.
Regularly $229.99 (and still that price for non-Prime members), you can save $100 and get it for $129.99.
