TV used to be so easy here in Roseville CA and beyond. Now? Not so much! Many are looking for a “cutting the cord guide” in Roseville CA and beyond, including ME!
Remember the good old days? You bought a TV, took it home and plugged it in, and voila – it worked. THEN cable came on the scene. We started having choices. When we moved to Roseville in 1994, I think we only had one choice? Though I could be wrong. Bottom line tho, once we had computers and internet, we went with Consolidated, which back then was Surewest (which originally was Roseville Telephone). We loved them – both for the TV options and the internet options. My sweet husband was awesome with computers and, because of his job at the time, we were among the first to get certain technical goodies that I barely understood but he LOVED. 😀
A few years later, one of my daughters moved to a house in older Roseville CA and ended up with Comcast Cable – and we liked that too.
Searching for a Cutting The Cord Guide in Roseville CA!
Now, I have the choice between those two options, and a few others like AT&T and Dish and….. Not to mention Smart TVs! And it totally confuses me at times. And it is even more confusing for some of my sweet real estate clients when they move to the area as each city can vary. We do have a couple more options than Lincoln CA has, as one client and I recently discovered. It took them a bit but they are quite happy with their options as well. And I have handy lists to share with my real estate clients depending on where they move that I keep adding to as I learn of even MORE interesting options.
Last night, I discovered even MORE possibilities thanks to some fun Christmas movies. 😀🎄 I was reading an article about how family favorite Candace Cameron Bure is sharing that her new network, Great American Family, had started their Christmas Movie Lineup – and I have to say, it sounds delightful. My whole family loved her in Full House and I have continued to enjoy watching her in a variety of shows and movies throughout the years. My senior mom and I LOVED watching her fun mysteries together.
But I have now officially “cut the cord,” here in Roseville, as have all my kids (they were actually way ahead of me on this one – partly because the cable option was the easiest for my sweet mom, so we didn’t make any changes at the time.) Now, though, I just have internet and a small (well – big to ME, but small at 44 inches compared to family members with HUGE TVs 😊) and Samsung Smart TV.
Can you tell, I rarely watch TV? I mostly just love having YouTube on my phone – tho not the YouTube TV channel – to listen to when I walk 😀 and the TV to share cute kid shows when my local grandkids come to visit.
So I wondered, is there a way I can watch a couple of those Christmas movies, if I wanted to? If you are wondering that as well, you will be happy to hear what I found out! YES – I found one “cutting the cord” guide followed by a few more! Happy Dance Time!

While I was looking up a show for my grandkids on Amazon. and was searching for a specific show, I was delighted to spot “Great American Pure Flix.” I immediately signed up for a 1 week trial to give me time to research it. If I’m not mistaken, it does look like it is, indeed, the Great American channel. Apparently, they merged together with Pure Flix a while back and Amazon offers it for $7.99 a month subscription fee. I don’t believe it works the same as it does on the direct channel. I couldn’t find any of the Christmas shows that are coming up. However I then picked one from November – A Hot Cocoa Christmas – and there it was. So i think I will be keeping this subscription – at least for a while. 😊
So I will be doing more research on all this and I’m curious – do y’all have either of these? Do you have another cutting the cord guide in Roseville CA or the surrounding area that you recommend? Do you have any pros, cons, or reviews to share with me, about these or other options, and possibly to have them added to a future follow-up post? I’d love to hear!
