Try Playstation Vue, Hulu, Youtube TV. There are others, and all have
multiple choices. They tend to have the same channels in their basic
service, and as you go up in pricing you should be able to find
everything you want, or you can just add specific channels to the
basic service. And I like Vudu for movies on demand. Amazon Prime also
has its uses, especially if you order lots of stuff online - they give
you free shipping.
All you need is a streaming box, Roku or something. And an OTA
antenna, if one will work where you live. On-topic: I think Roku has a
DLNA service built in now, so you can look at your photos and videos
on your TV.
