Fall is in full swing, and that can mean only one thing: The time to give is upon us! Whether you’re preparing for a late fall birthday or like to get your Christmas presents all squared away before you winter, it’s never too early to shop around and get what you need.


If you’re looking for an entertainment source for a loved one, it’s a good idea to cut the cord to cable and find some alternatives for a good watch.


Here are four cable alternatives you can give as gifts!

1. Digital Antenna Installation

Does a loved one of yours pay an outrageous price for cable when they only watch a handful of channels? You could help them cut the cord by having a digital antenna installed!


A digital antenna gives you access to basic, local channels FOR FREE. On top of that, the channels will come with a crisp, clean, and high-quality picture!

2. Media Streaming Devices

The awful thing about cable has to be paying for hundreds of channels you don’t want and may never use. With cable packaging channels together, you have no choice but to bite the bullet and pay for all channels. However, with media streaming devices, you get the power to choose!


Pick from an almost endless combination of streaming sites such as Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, Curiosity Stream, and Amazon Prime Video. Whoever you get a media streaming device for as a gift, you give them the power of total control over their entertainment!

3. DVR Box

Are you trying to find a gift for someone who always complains they miss their favorite show every week? Consider getting them a DVR box!


Working best with a digital antenna, a DVR box will allow them to record their favorite shows or news segments when they are out of the house.

4. Smart TV

Maybe the person you are getting a gift for already cut the cord and exclusively uses digital antennas and streaming devices. The perfect icing on the cake for their modern entertainment system has to be a smart TV!


Smart TVs already have built-in apps so you can easily watch your streaming devices without a third-party device! All your entertainment is easily integrated with a purchase of a smart TV. So, if you’re looking to simplify someone’s entertainment life, this is the perfect gift!
