What do I need to watch TV without a TV subscription?

You easily use all apps on your TV without having to use your smartphone or laptop ever again. Moreover, you only need to install these apps once. 

You own a smart TV: via your TV's menu you search for the VRT MAX, VTM GO and GoPLAY apps and install these. You log in once and you watch all your favourite programs for free anytime you want.

You don't own a smart TV: not an issue at all, a casting device will turn any TV into a smart TV in seconds. We recommend a device that supports Google TV or Android TV. This would allow installation of the apps directly on the device, plus the menu is extremely userfriendly. And last but not least, you'll have a remote. ;-)

Recommendation then? That would be the Google Chromecast with Google TV. So, a small, one-time investment as compared to all the money you'll be saving by getting rid of your TV subscription and TV decoder.
