Cord cutting can come with a bit of a start-up cost; the biggest one is buying streaming players for your TVs. The good news is in the long run you will save money. On average the typical cable subscriber pays $120 a year renting a DVR. Over three years that equals $360.
However, you can get a free streaming player from several different services.
The following is our guide to finding a free streaming player from many popular services.
Free Roku Express from Sling TV
Sling TV is offering a free Roku Express if you prepay for two months of Sling TV. Not a bad deal if you already plan to get Sling TV.
Free Roku Express from Hulu
Hulu has a great deal for new subscribers. For $29.99 you will get four months of Hulu and a free Roku Express. Considering a Roku Express costs $29.99 normally, this deal will give you four months of Hulu for free.
Free Roku Premiere from DIRECTV NOW
The Roku Premiere is a great 4K streaming player that typically costs $69.99. Now if you prepay for two months of DIRECTV NOW you can get the Roku Premiere for free.
Other Streaming Deals
Although the following deals are not for a free device, they are still a great deal.
Half Off Roku Premiere+ from Sling
If you prepay for three months of Sling TV, you can get half off a Roku Premiere+. A great deal on a powerful streaming player.
Half Off Air TV from Sling
The Air TV is Sling TV’s streaming player that combines Sling TV with your antenna and Netflix all in one interface. Now if you repay for three months of Sling TV, you can get the Air TV for half off.
