Posted on

Icon_thesaver_12Movies, music, books, TV — the cost of keeping oneself entertained can add up, especially heading into blockbuster-heavy months of the summer. Fear not! We’ve got your budget covered. Every day this week we put up posts on how to find the best in cheap — and free! — options. Click here to browse through all our thrifty tips.

You’re considering giving cable TV the ol’ heave-ho, but you winder if and where you can still watch your favorite shows. Here’s a guide to get you started:

Greek Two weeks after the episodes air, they post permanently to ABC Family’s site. Free!

Mad Men Episodes only occasionally post to AMC’s website, so buy the season pass on iTunes (season 2 ran $23).

Burn Notice USA posts the most recent episode a week after it airs, and episodes are available for five weeks.

The Daily Show Full episodes are posted the next day, and the archives have eps spanning the show’s full history.

The Hills All episodes get posted to MTV. Yes, Spencer is just as annoying online.
