Comparison – Cable/Satellite vs. TV with FireStick/NetFlix/Hulu/etc.

After comparing cable/satellite and other choices, I have come to the following conclusion.
So I have done some major investigation into what I’m going to change to.
  • Dish Network
  • America’s Top 120 – $67.99 – I have a discount of $20.00 = $47.99
  • Equipment – $10.00
  • Outdoor Pack – $4.00
  • Total:  $62.03 + all the tax stuff = $66.32


  • FireStick Purchase – One Time Only Cost – $49.99 (Link to buy)
  • Amazon Prime Membership – Get all Prime Movies and TV Shows – $119 / year – (Link to buy)
  • Antenna – For the local channels to be free – $19 one time fee per tv – (Link to buy)


  • Netflix – 2 viewers – $13.87 (actually already pay for this) (Link to buy)
  • My Outdoor Channel – $9.99
  • Hulu – $6.40
  • Total:  $30.26

You can do the Sling service and probably would not need the Netflix and Hulu and it runs about $25 a month. Sling has lots of channels to choose from and you can use it with the Fire Stick as well.

So what do you need to do next?

  1. Go get an Amazon Prime Account by signing up here with a 30 day free trial :  Click Here
  2. Order a Fire Stick for $49.99:  Click Here
  3. You can use the channels you get with the Amazon Prime and the Fire Stick but to add more you would then sign up for either Netflix, Hulu, Sling.

NOTE:  Before changing, I would decide what shows or channels you can not live without. Once you do this, find out how you can watch them. This may be done usually just by googling how to watch “show”.

Now I have a couple of other ways to save money while making money while you are signing up for the above.

More money 💰 , more money 💴 more money 💵!

  1. Sign up for MyPoints. (Click Here)  This is a wonderful place to earn money for shopping online. You go there, type in where you are going to shop, then click on it. You earn money for shopping online. After you get so many points, you redeem points for gift cards. I’m working on getting Amazon Gift Cards to buy Christmas Presents. You can also refer your family and friends and that can help you….

MyPoints actually has a deal now if you sign up your account with them and click Amazon Prime and sign up they will give you a $15 Amazon Gift Card.

Then when you are ready to buy the Fire Stick, go to Mypoints first, type in Amazon and you can earn 8 points per dollar for the Fire Stick.

2. If you do not want to do the MyPoints, download the Ibotta App on your phone. Its a saving site where you can use at thousands of places with coupons without clipping. It’s really easy to click and signup. Please use the following Referral Code: ukkogAt Amazon, you can earn up to 6% cash back. It varies at different places. So you can sign up with Ibotta, then sign up for Amazon Prime.

There are so many ways to save money, sometimes it just takes some time to figure it out. I know time is something some people don’t have, but I make time when it comes to money.


Let me know if you have any questions. I’ll be glad to help you.
