Cord cutters can stream classic TV shows and movies

Classic TV shows and movies have traditionally been somewhat hard to find. Sometimes, they would be available on DVD or VHS at your local corner store, or you could get lucky and catch a re-run or special airing on local stations.

Now, they are becoming increasingly easy to stream online. Recently, several new services have launched, which give fans of old classics access to the content they love, without breaking the bank.

Cord cutting has been skyrocketing in popularity as recent studies have found cord cutting can save the consumer over $1,000 a year. Now, what about schools? Can they too benefit from cord cutting? As budgets become tight, many schools are considering cutting their TV bills. However, they are still looking for ways to bring video into the classroom as a teaching tool.

The problem is most streaming services don’t include legal rights to stream their content into a classroom. Technically, showing Netflix or Sling TV in a classroom breaks the terms of service as it does not include an additional fee for a public display license. Streaming Netflix or Sling TV content into classrooms will raise the risk of future legal action.

You’ll be glad to learn that there are several streaming services, both free and subscription-based, that can help make learning more fun. Let’s look at a few of our favorite options built especially with classroom learning in mind.

Free TV guides for cord cutters

We were off to a great start when we canceled cable TV; our new antenna gave us access to an abundant amount of great content. But it wasn’t long before we noticed one unexpected blank spot in our family television entertainment. How would we figure out what was on TV and when it would air? We had become very dependent on our TV channel guide to tell us what was on each day. We felt as if we had gone back to the 1990s when a TV guide popped up every time we changed the channel.

The good news, as we found out, is that you can get a TV channel guide just like, if not better than, the one you had when you paid for cable TV.
