It's the most wonderful time of the year for television fans. As the days start to get cooler and kids head back to school that also means a slew of brand new TV shows are about to hit the airwaves. This is both exciting and thrilling! Who doesn't love making a brand new Fall TV schedule to adhere to every day of the week? The only thing is — what happens if you no longer actually have cable?

Cutting out cable in favor of streaming subscriptions is very much on the rise, and if you're thinking about pulling the plug (literally), there are ways to get rid of cable and still keep watching all your favorite shows.

It might require juggling a few different streaming services, but here's how you can keep up with all the new fall shows sans a silly expensive cable package. Also, don't worry if some of your favorite shows are suspiciously missing — they'll be back at midseason or another TBD time!
