Good Morning America aired a great segment “Cancel Your Cable Bill, Still Watch Great TV” on getting all of your TV content through your computer rather than a cable service in order to save money. Click here to read the piece and watch the segment.
Windows Media Center was featured as one of the options out that Debra and Mervin James (“the pioneers of Home entertainment”) use to get their TV content they love.
One thing we want to emphasize is that the majority of the 180 million Windows Vista licenses include Windows Media Center, which gives you the capability to get all of your TV content from your PC. No need to buy a new computer!
Like Debra and Mervin, you can also buy a TV tuner to receive digital broadcast channels, this turns your computer on a powerful DVR. You can record programs up to two weeks in advance.
With more people trying to find ways to pinch their pennies, this is an easy to way get your TV content and quickly save on cable bills.
