5 Best Resources for Cord Cutters

If you’re joining the cord cutting movement, you need resources to make the experience even better. The good news is that there are a lot of neat resources that you can use, both on smartphone and the web, to help you put an end to high cable bills.

We’re going to be covering the best resources, and some of them will require you to pay a monthly subscription for streaming.

We still recommend getting the best HD antenna you can find, but you can make cutting the cord even better with:

1. Netflix Party

Netflix Party has been downloaded by over 500,000 people, and it’s an extension for Google Chrome browsers. But it’s an extension that brings a whole new feel to the world of online streaming.

Let me run a scenario by you really quickly.

You’ve been dating this girl for a few months, but she has to go away for several days each month for work. You’re almost in a long distance relationship, so your designated movie night is never going to work out consistently.

Netflix Party can change all of that.

What this amazing extension does is it will synchronize video playback with your “party.” Your party can be more than one person, and it allows you to watch your favorite shows together. There’s no longer the need to have your partner ruin the ending or the next scene because they shout out what happened and you’re a minute or two behind.

But it gets even better.

You’ll also have a group chat feature added, so you can converse in chat while your show or movie is going on.

2. Rocumentaries.com

Are you a big fan of documentaries? If so, I have a surprise for you: rocumentaries.com. When you go to the site, you’ll have the option of signing up for a curated list of all of the best documentaries available.

But you can also just view the best documentaries on the site.

I am on the site as I am writing this, and I see a lot of great content just waiting for me to watch including:

  • Dynasties on BBC
  • Quincy on Netflix
  • The Reasons on Vimeo
  • Silence U: What has Yale become? On YouTube

What you will notice is that some of the documentaries are not on free streaming website. You will have to have Netflix to watch some of these documentaries, or another streaming service. The curated list will provide you with ratings for each documentary and a link where you can go to see the documentary in its entirety.

If you don’t find what you’re looking for on this resource, I highly recommend Documentary Addict.

3. My90s TV

If you want to talk about nostalgic, I recommend going to my90stv.com. Don’t mind the site’s design – it’s meant to look old. When you go to the site, you’ll find an old television screen, checkboxes and categories of shows to watch.

Use your mouse to check off the types of shows you want to watch, click the power button and start changing the channels on the television.

It’s a blast from the past.

You’ll be able to watch television shows from the 90s, music videos, cartoons and even commercials. The commercials add a nice touch because it really feels like you’re watching your favorite shows live.

Most of the shows are streaming off of YouTube.

You’ll have way too much fun on this site. When you start flicking through the channels, you’ll also notice that it will tell you what year the show was on, too. This is a lot like Nick Reboot which was eventually shutdown.

The site has been up for more than four years, so it’s safe to say that you can enjoy your 90s television for years to come.

4. Popcorn Time

Popcorn Time is one of those services that you’ll want to be careful using because you may stream copyrighted content. The service is available as an app, and it is also available for Windows. The company has a built-in VPN version which I highly recommend so that you do not get in trouble for breaking copyright laws.

When you download the app, you’ll be able to find all of your great television shows and movies.

The app will look for torrents and includes a media player inside of the app to make your experience even easier. There are really no restrictions, and this is very similar to using Kodi.

Kodi is a great alternative, but the setup is not as easy. When you use these two options, please keep in mind that I am not responsible for how you use these sites.

The catalog is great, the quality is great and the company has been able to survive for years without being taken down in the process.

5. Can I Stream It

Can I Stream It is a resource when you’re trying to find a television show or movie to stream. I have had times when I really wanted to watch a show, and I wouldn’t even mind paying for the series or movie.

I am saving money on cord cutting, but that doesn’t mean I am not willing to spend money on the content that I actually want to watch.

But with so many streaming options, it can be very difficult to find the content that I want to watch. This is where Can I Stream It really shines. When you go to the site, you’ll have the option to search for:

  • Movies
  • TV

Click on the type of content that you want to search and then type in what you want to find. You’ll also be able to refine the results a little further by choosing:

  • Streaming
  • Digital rental
  • Digital purchase
  • Disc purchase
  • Cable

And the database will help you locate the exact show or movie that you want to find without spending a dime. It’s a great resource when trying to determine which streaming service is right for you because it tells you exactly what service will offer the content that you want to watch.
