Oops.) So I looked around and landed on the highly rated Sony BDP-S5100 3D Blu-ray that had built in Wi-Fi for .03 – on sale from 9.99 which it’s currently at. Not because it’s a bad product or anything (the reviews are great! ) and rocks HDTV surprisingly enough, but it never occurred to me that it had long met it’s prime w/ technology.I of course knew it was ancient, but who looks at the ports in the back when buying this stuff?So just like with our cell phones last month, and car insurance and home phone service this month, we set out to tackle the TV portion of this outrageous bill all in the spirit of challenging everything. Well, I’ll let my wife answer that part: That’s reason #1 :) Obviously outside of my control, unless I fancy myself a divorce.

” But I quickly notice the “plugs into the HDMI port” part again, ugh… Why can’t I just be like everyone else and splurge on a huge (new) flat screen?? :) I once again tried attaching it to my frankenstein concoction of cords I’ve since built in the hopes of capturing that miracle all gamblers hold on to, but yet again no dice (see what I did there? I ran upstairs to our master bedroom where it sits all alone waiting for action (we never use it), plugged it in to that sexy HDMI port that I’d never had the pleasure of seeing before, downloaded the app onto my smartphone (Android Moto X) And BAM! And you can pick it up in all sorts of stores including directly from Google, and of course The Amazon.

I was watching episode after episode of Elmo’s World with my baby boy in no time. I had the internet in the palm of my hand/TV, baby! Where it’s been reviewed over 20,000 times and has a total of 4 out of 5 stars.

We could move our smaller TV down into our main room if we wanted to have access to everything, but that kinda sucks (first world problems, right? Orrrrr we can cave in and pick up a new sexy TV to then stream everything to and slowly de-tach ourselves from Cable, but pending a change in the Mrs’ seas, that’s pretty out of the equation right now too.

Though, I must admit it would be nice to free up some space up in here and replace that honkin’ thing right up on the wall a la Cribs style! Almost as worse as our Ask J$ Anything Day, which was actually pretty fun!

Last article we went over how to get home phone service for practically free by using Ooma, and this time around we’re tackling the heated Cable/TV part of the telecom trifecta. It’s large, paid off, 10 years old and absolutely beautiful.

And just like with our home phone line, I unfortunately screwed myself multiple ways in this department too – one of which out of frugality itself! Except when it’s not and your hacking attempts go to $hit.

Then there was mistake #3: waiting two months to open it up and try connecting everything.

Meaning, I didn’t realize it wasn’t compatible until it was way too late to return it, thereby losing a cool on the spot, ugh…

Of course, I can still hawk it and probably recoup most of that money since it retails for 0 again, but still. But wait for mistakes #4, #5, #6, and #7 first: I thought I could outwhit myself and find a way to jigger around different cords and contraptions to see if that would save this debacle.

So first bought a coaxial cable to see if that would do the trick (the Blu-ray and my TV both had slots for it) but of course that didn’t work – you need HDMI! I should have stopped there and ate the loss, but unfortunately I went on…

Anyways, the point is we’re not ready to get rid of TV’s luxuries all the way yet, but we are wanting to scale back and save some dough in the process.
