You can easily save money and cut out cable charges with a few easy steps. First, you need a Smart TV, which you probably already have. Second, you need internet access, which you also already have. So far, so good!


Next, you may want to enlist the help of one or more of these apps to get all your favorite TV and shows.


YouTube TV

Get live TV, sports and DVR capabilities with unlimited storage. You can share this streaming service on up to six accounts at a time, including your tablet, mobile phone and anything else you might think of. You can stream on three devices at a time, so in a house with roommates you can watch together or divide and conquer. The YouTube TV network is $40 a month and channels vary by location.


Sling TV

With Sling TV, users can curate their own live-stream lineup, with three channel options: Sling Orange, Sling Blue or a combination. Check out channel options in your area and see what matters most. Packages range $15–25, depending on the offer and number of channels.


Amazon Prime

For a couple annual payments, students can register here for a discounted rate, but everyone else can enjoy Amazon movies, shows and prime benefits with the Amazon Firestick and app. Having free two-day shipping isn’t a bad perk either.


If you’re still not seeing your favorite shows listed, a few other options include Tubi, Netflix, Hulu and Vudu.

Visiting Madeira

When someone mentions travel to Portugal, they probably mean visiting Lisbon or Porto. Southwest of Portugal proper, however, is an autonomous Portuguese archipelago filled with great wine, beautiful botanical gardens and a wonderful climate.

Pastel de Nata in Portugal

While it’s unlikely you’d go all the way to Lisbon, Portugal, for just one dish, there’s certainly one bite you must have while you’re there: the egg tart. Pastel de nata (cream pastry) is a national obsession that has become a bucket-list bite for nearly every traveler to the country’s seaside capital. Fortunately for tourists, the city’s most iconic landmark, Belém Tower, is located just across the street and down the shoreline from the city’s undisputed powerhouse of pastel, Pastéis de Bélem. Unfortunately for visitors, the line leading to Pastéis de Bélem’s bakery counter may be the longest line found anywhere in the city, as salivating hordes wait their turn to taste the original, secret recipe invented by the monks of the nearby Jerónimos Monastery in Santa Maria de Bélem, itself an architecture masterpiece that places it at the top of any Lisbon must-list.
