Want to Cut the Cord?

 

Mohu Channels – an innovative new device from Mohu – ┬áis a product that just make cord cutting, that much easier!

 

Launched this week after a successful Kickstarter campaign last year, Mohu Channels offers up something that hasn’t previously been available. The small device takes your over air TV channels obtained by an over air HDTV antenna (my preference is the Mohu Leaf 50 Amplified Indoor HDTV Antenna or Curve 50 Designer HDTV Antenna at my location), your streaming media subscriptions (Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon, Sling TV, Prime Instant Video), and any webpages (Google, Amazon, GoMohu, etc…), and puts them into an onscreen menu as seen with satellite and cable services.

 

Be set FREE with FREE HDTV - Save $1,200 per year! Click to buy a Mohu antenna!

 

There’s no subscription fee for this all-in-one channel guide. Once you buy the device, you’re set!

 

Mohu Channels and it can be connected to any TV that has an HDMI port. In addition, there’s a USB 2.0 port on the device that allows you to add an external USB drive (flash drive or larger) to store apps and media.

 

Currently available only on the Mohu website, Mohu Channels is $149.99 – a one time purchase for this great cord cutting tool! Watch for my video review of it very soon.

Sling TV Subscription Invitations Going Out Now

slingtv-invitation

If you’re excited to try the new Sling TV subscription service available from Dish TV, you’re in luck! Those who requested invitations to try Sling TV are receiving invites by email as I type.

I received mine and I’m looking forward to trying it via the FREE 7 Day Trial. They ask for a credit card to keep on file, as once the trial period is over, users are automatically billed for a 30 day time period.

There’s no contract for Sling TV and you can cancel your Sling TV subscription at any time.

In the FAQ on their site I found contact info and how to download the Sling TV app to my Roku 3. They have an email: [email protected] and a phone number 1-888-893-9069 if you want to ask questions before you subscribe.

There are additional channel packages that you can add for $5 per month related to sports, kids and news programming. I’m going to start with the basic channel offering from TBS, TNT, ESPN, ESPN2, Food Network, HGTV, Disney and more.

I’m a bit bummed that currently you can only watch Sling TV on your tablets (Android and iOS – iPad), smartphones (Android and iOS – iPhone & iPod touch), PC, Mac and Roku devices (boxes and stick), but the service plans to add channels on Amazon Fire TV and Amazon Fire TV Stick devices, Xbox One and Google Nexus (and others I would imagine…) very soon.

At only $20 per month after a Free 7 Day Trial, the Sling TV experience may well be the best deal in streaming entertainment for cord cutters who crave live sports TV. But for those who aren’t into sports, it may end up being just another way to pay more for less.

The question remains…

Will Sling TV be a streaming media trend to dominate the internet TV landscape, or just a repackaging of the same old thing – charging for every ‘extra’ including channels and screens – ultimately boosting your TV bill once more?

Time will tell.

XBMC KODI Excellent Cordcutter Resource

Buy VPN

XBMC can seem complicated to setup and use, but there are a lot of great tutorials on YouTube with folks who really know their stuff!

When I got started using XBMC I was terrified of the interface. It seemed overwhelming. Admittedly there is a learning curve to it, and it does take time to get comfortable using it, but once you do, a whole new world in entertainment opens up.

I talk a little bit about it in my book: Simple Guide to Over-the-Air Free TV, but to learn how to setup and use XBMC (recently renamed KODI) YouTube really is the place to learn.

If you want to download KODI, you can get it here for PC or Mac, Android, iOS, Raspberry Pi, Linux and KodiBuntu.

Here are a few XBMC/KODI videos I recommend to get you started.

This one is a 42 minute ‘how to install’, that is helpful if you’re not yet using XBMC.

These are from a channel which also has an active Facebook group worth joining to help you learn even more. You have to request an invite, but once approved you’ll get the scoop!

Add-ons are what make XBMC Kodi a personalized, streaming entertainment solution for cordcutters. Paired with a Mohu HDTV Antenna, it can’t be beat!
