Sling TV – You may know it as A La Carte TV
Early in our cord-cutting journey, we were skeptical about losing certain cable channels. The 150+ channels we never watched? We weren’t going to lose any sleep over those…but, the ~10 or so we DID watch?? That was another story. Enter Sling TV to the rescue! Our Sling subscription definitely made the transition easier and gave our family access to live TV channels they felt they couldn’t live without.

If the options are a bit staggering for you, Decider.com may be worth a look.
