Like fax machines, cable service is a technology from another era. You have to sit there and be told what you’re going to watch, and when. Your only control involves watching something else altogether by switching channels, and if there’s nothing on, well, tough luck. Cord cutters realized this a long time ago, and to help you take that plunge, services like SelectTV exist.
More and more people are cutting the cable cord and looking to alternative TV and movie viewing methods. Netflix and Hulu are cool, but only one service offers all the perks of both cable and web-based streaming–while simultaneously dwarfing any other library. That’s SelectTV, where you can access over 300,000 TV episodes, 200,000 movies, 50,000 radio stations, and 5,000 live channels all from the same, simple browser interface. There are many reasons to cut the cord, but none are as convincing as SelectTV.

In case anyone gets interested in SelectTV and is interested here is some information that will save you the trouble of trying the service.
SelectTV aggregates links from Youtube and other free video sources so do not expect to get access to shows like Hulu and Netflix gives you access to. The SelectTV service finds freely available shows from various online services and puts them in an interface with categories so you can narrow down comedies that are from the 80’s or 70’s etc but by no means does it give you access to the library of Hulu or Netflix or any other paid service content that licenses the shows for use. Sure you could say that the interface helps you narrow down shows to watch by category so that you don’t have to try and look through all the available uploaded shows to youtube but they also miss the mark as they go by the title of an uploaded youtube video and don’t actually check if the video is what they think it is. For instance if you happened to go to the “Family and Kids Channels” section and go to the “Hot Wheels” section you see a video link for “Hot Wheels Angry Birds vs the Toys Crash and Smash” and one would think it is a Hot wheel cartoon that you’d see on Saturday mornings but it’s some person’s home video of them using hot wheels cars on a plastic track that they push by hand and crash into one another…..I highly doubt they is what was intended for people to see. Anyway try the service if you’d like but know that this does not provide the same licensed shows like Hulu, Netlix or Amazon video provides….it’s all just categorized content of freely available online shows available on YouTube and possibly other free online video channels.
I found this service pretty useful. Gone are the days when Netflix alone has you covered. Now there’s a dozen different sites and apps that do what Netflix does, and frankly it’s a hassle to keep track of if you’re a cord-cutter and try to get all of your TV that way. SelectTV just makes that a little easier. And considering I could find the change in my couch cushions to cover its monthly cost, I’d say it’s worth it.
