From Streaming Mini PCs to Subscription-Free Media Boxes

 - Feb 10, 2015
These affordable TV streaming devices range from video-compatible mini PCs to subscription-free media boxes that make cutting the cord easy. With the growing popularity of subscription-free TV services and TV streaming USBs, products like Amazon's FIRE TV offer similar capabilities to Google's more expensive Chromecast product at a fraction of the price.

In addition, Channel Master's DVR+ says goodbye to programming costs that come with a monthly channel subscription. The product allows one to enjoy all their favorite shows without the hassle of a contract that will end up costing them more than they bargained for.

Affordable TV streaming is no longer a rarity as more and more cable companies begin to base their businesses around a subscription-free model. This model is all about cutting costs and offering consumer convenience on-the-go.
