During difficult times when budgets are stretched to their limits, it's important not to trim entertainment out of this monetary equation. Trusted sources share entertainment brings us happiness which is a fundamental and powerful medicine that aids with overall health and wellbeing. It's been said, "when you're happy, you have everything" and happiness also helps to reduce stress and tension. 

Simply put, movies and television series create joy in people's lives. When watching and listening, members of this viewing audience tend to forget their problems, worries, and difficulties in their own lives. That being said, what are some free and inexpensive ways we can expand our entertainment experience with cable without breaking the bank?

Consider Adding Affordable Premium Channels

Think about the average cost of taking a family of four or the ticket prices for a couple to go out to see a film at their favorite theater. Compare that cost to adding a premium channel to your current lineup with options that include:

  • HBO® includes 7 digital channels at $23.70/mo
  • Cinemax® includes 5 digital channels at $14.70/mo
  • Showtime / The Movie Channel / Flix includes 11 digital channels of Showtime and TMC at $10.00/mo
  • Starz / Encore includes 14 digital channels at $20.70 per month
  • EPIX with 5 digital channels at $5.99 per month

Many cable customers are already familiar with premium platforms like HBO®, Cinemax®, Showtime, and The Movie Channel, but some aren't aware of the other less expensive options. With retro being all the rage these days, channels like Encore are excellent ways to view blast-from-the-past favorites again or for the first time.     

While EPIX is the least expensive option, don't let the small price of this selection sell this channel short. Similar to the more well-known platforms previously mentioned, on EPIX you'll also find current blockbuster movies, classic films from the past, new original series, exclusive programming, and more. You'll see all your favorite genres from action-adventure movies to films for the whole family, thrilling horror flicks, side-splitting comedies, intriguing dramas, science fiction favorites, engaging romances, and so much more.
