Ronny in Grand Saline, Texas listens on KTBB and asked us: “I’m a cord-cutter. In 2015 I got rid of satellite TV. I wasn’t happy with their service or their packages. However, I do miss watching CNN and Fox News. Is there any way to get those programs without having to get satellite again. I live in the country, so I do not have Internet”
Ronny, your channel have to come from somewhere, you already know that you can’t see them over the air, so your choices are internet and that satellite service you canceled.
If you are able to get internet access, there are services like YouTube TV and Hulu Live that will give you access to those channels for less than a typical satellite TV subscription, but you need to access those particular channels through some kind of paid service, and it will be delivered by means other than free over-the-air TV.
Having said that, if you happen to have a smartphone and decent signal where you live, you can probably pay for a subscription and watch on it.
