A lot of people say they feel like cutting the cord and ditching cable. A few years ago, my husband and I felt the same and we did break up with our cable company. We made the switch to using only internet. We streamed from popular free and low-cost services, and we were happy that way. I think the key is knowing what apps best fit your family’s needs.
I recently shared that I was adding Comcast’s new Xfinity Instant TV for our family to review. I’m really excited to share with my readers how, where and when this app impact our viewing experience.
For our Instant TV subscription, we chose to add the HBO and Starz channel packs. The service was quick and easy to add. The only issue we had in the beginning was with our Roku – if you are planning to add Instant TV, and use a Roku for home viewing, just be sure that the device you are using has the latest upgrades. The app played perfectly on our tablet, phones and computers, and Roku stick. We were also able to stream on our laptop and computer.
This month was a busy one for our family, and not a healthy one, as I ended up with the flu for over a week. The bed, warm tea and my laptop became my best friends while I was sick. Our daughter was not far behind me, only her flu like systems included a trip to the ER. There we sat for hours in the waiting room, and then I sat and watched her sleep for another couple of hours after being called back. These are just two examples of when I used Instant TV to help pass the time or help myself feel better. Sometimes entertainment can be the trick. There is nothing like getting lost inside a well-written movie or seasons of a good series. It sure helped me while I was down. I watched three movies that I really wanted to see.
Is it worth it?
Yes, I think so. Instant TV lets you expand your channel lineup without over stretching your budget or making a long-term commitment. I would definitely recommend this service to cord cutters, and families looking for more variety to stream.

Yes, I think so. XFINITY Instant TV lets you expand your channel line up without over stretching your budget. I would definitely recommend this service to cord cutters, and families looking for more variety to stream. I know our granddaughter likes to watch shows on her mom’s phone while they grocery shop. With Sesame Street now being on HBO, this would be a great benefit for her without any long term commitments.
