Default How I rooted Android to eliminate a cable internet and TV bill

Hi

I thought I would share this experience: Hacking an Android phone for $8 monthly broadband and TV

My girlfriend has been transferred to San Antonio. She wanted television and broadband but not the $80 a month cable/interent bill.

She has T-Mobile's unlimited data plan so I rooted her phone and installed WiFi Tether Router on it and bought her Aereo live television for $8 a month and saved a truckload of money.

Aereo rebroadcasts over the air television over the internet delivering crystal clear HD.

DONATE TO ME
Nice article its indeed a interesting point of view but there's so many other things to consider. The location on america could be ok but even here in london i have a lot of connection problems and i am also a gamer i wouldnt like to have my connection delaying my game experience

However ya.. it could be a good oppurtunity who doesnt spend to much time at home or dont mind fail an episode here and then..

Also for those who may not know.. yet... which i find impossible lol. London's three operator is a low cost Unlimited Data and also others are following their step such Phone Houses and Orange (which is on promotion Sims right now)
