Save on TV Subscriptions

The disruption caused by covid-19 has meant that many people have had to review their financial position and deem it prudent to make economies where they can. TV subscriptions are definitely in the optional extra category when it comes to ones expenses, and so are an area where you might be able to make some worthwhile cost savings.

With finer weather on the way, viewing on the small screen will likely go even further down the priority list. But even so, we still want to be entertained at times.

If you do not use it stop paying the subscription for extra TV channels and streaming services. If you only use part of the package can you get the reduced package for less? There are free streaming TV services available. Would these satisfy your requirements? You have to sit through some ads but its a small price to pay for access to some good boxsets.
