No cable? That's not a problem. We're learning that being money conscious (remember, we're trying not to get over the spirit of broke) is more about how to keep more of your money as opposed to completely cutting out what you enjoy. One of the first slashes we may usually falls in line with entertainment, but we've found a way to watch our new favorite shows. We're HYPE for Love Is___ premiering on OWN TV this Tuesday, June 19th at 9pm. Fromaward-winning, legendary producers Mara Brock Akil (Girlfriends,BeingMaryJane,TheGame) and Salim Akil(BlackLightning), this series is set primarily in 1990s LosAngeles against the backdrop of BlackHollywood and follows Nuri (MicheleWeaver) and Yasir (Will Catlett),a couple from seemingly opposite worlds, as they chase their dreams and learn to follow their hearts. Watch the trailer below.
Even if you don't have the OWN Network (or even a TV), we're watching the show with Philo - a live-TV streaming service. All you need is a high-speed internet connection, an SMS-enabled mobile phone number, and a cell phone, TV or computer as the service works on desktop and through their mobile app. This streaming service has been one of the few services we've found that streams OWN so when we need our Queen Sugar or Super Soul Sunday fix, this is where we head.
