Cord Cutting, Binge Watching and Streaming… Oh My!

Netflix has announced the date for the debut of Marco Polo, season two! As I count the days, I’m reminded of the benefits of streaming, binge watching, TV antennas, and free HDTV.

Marco Polo was a huge hit at my house last year. My wife and I enjoyed binge watching the entire season in one weekend. After waiting on pins and needles for some word about season two, Netflix announced it airs on July 1, 2016. It’s safe to say that my wife and I will binge watch season two, as well. This just one of the benefits of streaming. Choosing your shows without commercial interruption is another reason so many people are streaming.

Speaking of streaming devices, Solid Signal offers the MyGica Android. It’s perfect for cord cutters who want to watch their favorite Netflix or Hulu programs. Kids will love MyGica, too. Most are already streaming shows to their tablets. This makes MyGica a great streaming option for the entire family!

While streaming with a MyGica Android box is great, don’t forget about your TV antenna!

After binge watching the second season of Marco Polo, my wife and I won’t jump into another series. We’ll migrate back to our favorite over-the-air TV shows instead. How do I know this? Because this is what happened after we binge watched season two of Orange is the New Black. This is why it’s important to see streaming as a complement to your free HDTV.

Remember, 10 of the top 10 TV shows shown over the air for free. A TV antenna is the way to enjoy these without the costly cable bills. Your antenna also delivers local news, sports, weather, and entertainment to your home. When combined with streaming, this creates the perfect home theater experience.

Are you a cord cutter who enjoys Netflix’s original programming? The second season of Marco Polo begins July 1, as well as these programs, series, and Netflix movies:

Happy Streaming! Happy Cord Cutting!
We cut the cord for important reasons – the freedom to watch what we want without a costly cable bill. Streaming is fun, but the cord-cutting experience is based upon free HDTV from a TV antenna. Your OTA TV antenna always will be there for you, bringing you all your local news, sports, weather. It’s the best way to get TV for free!
