I know that a stellar deal on an HDMI cable is slightly random, but I was so excited to get this 6 foot HDMI cable shipped to my house for $1.75 that I have to share. This offer is on Amazon, but sold by DVI Gear; DVI Gear has a 4.5 star rating after more than 4,200 reviews.
I bought one of these cables so I can connect my laptop into our TV. From there we can watch shows and movies streamed via our Netflix subscription. For those that don’t have a $7.99 per month Netflix subscription, you can stream content via Amazon with their pay-per-view model. (Side note: I am a huge fan of this $8/month Netflix plan with a one-month free trial after having lived without cable for y-e-a-r-s because we hesitated to spend the money.).
I’ve hesitated to spend $50+ on a Roku box, which connects the TV to the internet, but won’t need to now. For less than 2 bucks my problem is solved. I hope someone else who has been waiting for a low-cost solution to the net streaming problem is as happy about this cord as I am.
If the idea of watching shows and movies from the internet on your TV is new to you, then read the post I wrote last fall about how to reduce your cable bill.
Your turn: How do you watch content streamed from the internet on your TV? Or do you stick to watching it on a computer or iPad?
