If you have an iPad, at least most of the work is done for you. With help from a few subscription services and accessories, you may never feel like having cable again.
All you need to get started is a television with an HDMI port.
Get a Hulu Plus subscription.
If you're most concerned with making sure you have access to current television shows, you need Hulu Plus. It costs $7.99 per month and you can sign up right here.
Netflix, of course.
One of the go-to names in streaming media, Netflix has loads of movies and television ready and waiting for you to stream to your iPad and mirror onto your television. Unlimited streaming costs $7.99 per month.
Your favorite media player app.
You can load up your iPad with movie files and play them on your television via any number of media-player apps. We recommend GoodPlayer, which is available here for $2.99.
