Cable replacements are typically less expensive than traditional cable packages, and some other streaming services are even free! This can lead to significant cost savings over time. In fact, the average household can save $600-$1200 when they cut out cable.1
And yes—that includes live TV. With cable replacements like YouTube TV and fuboTV, you can watch live TV, which means you don’t have to miss out on breaking news, major sports events, or award shows. Plus, many on-demand services provide top-of-the-line original programming—the very shows that are perfect for epic binge sessions.
Skip the cable box and complicated wiring when you’re streaming at home, or watch on-the-go by streaming to your laptop, phone, or tablet wherever you are. Miss a live TV show? You may be able to record it and watch it later. Some cable replacements, like YouTube TV, come with generous DVR storage space in the Cloud.
When you’re not tied to cable, you are able to access hundreds of streaming services with all different types of programming. Think of it this way: You can create your own custom, super-flexible “package” by only purchasing subscriptions to streaming services you like.

Streaming is when whatever you’re watching is delivered through the internet as opposed to traditional cable or satellite methods.
While slower internet connections can support limited streaming, gigabit internet makes it even better. When you watch with Google Fiber’s gigabit internet, you’ll get to watch in 4K Ultra HD without buffering, interruptions, and with top-notch picture quality. You’ll also be able to watch on multiple screens throughout your house at the same time without compromising your viewing experience.
And with all the bandwidth you get with gigabit internet, everyone can watch on multiple devices at the same time. You won’t ever have to miss the finale of your favorite series because it’s on at the same time as the big game—or vice versa.
A smart TV is a TV that connects to the internet. It will have an ethernet jack to connect to the internet or a menu will pop up asking you for the Wi-Fi password. If your TV hasn’t given you some option to connect to the internet, it’s probably not a smart TV. Don’t worry, though—you can use a device to connect your TV to the internet.
Yes! No need to miss out on breaking news, sports, award shows, or your favorite reality shows. There are several ways to watch live TV without cable, including watching with a cable-replacement like YouTube TV, Hulu + Live TV, or fuboTV, watching on broadcast networks’ websites, or watching over the air with a digital antenna. (That one’s not streaming, but it is a way to catch your favorite live programming without cable.)
You can stream on any device that can connect to the internet! One of the benefits of streaming is that you can watch on a Smart TV, computer, tablet, or mobile phone. You can also watch on a regular TV—all you have to do is connect your TV to the internet by using a device like an Apple TV, Chromecast, or a Roku player.
