The Secret Sites Cord Cutters Use to Stream Pay TV and Movies for Free

Piracy is a tricky subject, especially when it comes to pay TV. On one hand, there is little question that stealing is wrong, and streaming pay TV channels without paying for them is, without question, stealing.

At this point, cutting the cord is the only way consumers can fight back, but it obviously comes at a cost — most programming is no longer available as it airs. Beyond that, the networks might feel the sting but pay TV providers still win, since they also supply the country with high-speed Internet service.

Following comments from three cable company executives made during a panel at CES 2013, however, it appears as though an a la carte option will remain a dream for years to come. More →
