If there is one thing I hate it’s cable. We “Cut the Cable” years ago. However, if you’re anything like me then I am sure there are still TV shows and movies you want to watch.
Luckily for you, I have a few tricks up my sleeve. You can watch ALL of your favorite TV shows for free, and safely. Many of these services work on advertising. They show ads on the side or top of the home page. I will advise you when going through this list do NOT download anything. These are not services where you have to download the movie or TV show. If you are asked to download the movie or show then you probably clicked on something wrong.
