A cable subscription is the most straightforward way to watch live TV, and it’s typically the only way to get access to streaming content from cable networks. But you never get to choose which channels you actually want, and having to use all of their separate streaming services is a pain. Ultimately, you're paying a premium for stuff you just don't really use.
Instead of trying to figure out which online service has the biggest cross-section of your favorite shows, SelectTV offers up the largest content library in the world, aggregating over 300,000 TV episodes, 200,000 movies, along with 2,000 curated live TV channels so you can access whatever you want to watch. This deal also includes trial access to streaming services like Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon Prime Video. Plus, the included HDTV antenna lets you watch live local channels so you don't have to sacrifice network TV when you cut the cord.
SelectTV has apps for all major mobile and desktop platforms, and offers an extensive amount of free and paid content that will ultimately help you save big on the content bill. The Ultimate Cord Cutting Kit lets you get the content you want at a price that works for you. Plans start at $19.99 for one year of access in the Boing Boing Store.

Most tech-media takes on the iPhone’s 10th anniversary are bland and self-congratulatory, but I like Tom Warren’s at The Verge. He laments how Apple’s pocket computer killed his inner nerd. As a youngster, he’d be constantly tearing down and building computers, even in the sweltering heat of summer. But now… …All of that tinkering and […]
