Don't Have Cable? Watch These New Web Shows
Yes, the excitement of new fall network TV premieres is just around the corner. But not everyone has cable, or a Hulu Plus subscription, or HBO GO, or even someone else's Netflix account to bum off of. But never fear, cable-less ones, the Internet solves all problems. There are new shows premiering online this fall that anyone can watch for free, and unlike shows on network cable, they won't take up more than a few minutes of your time. Web shows also often feature new talent before it hits the big(ger) screen, and you'll never have to illegally download shows and/or get an obnoxious computer virus. So go ahead — watch 12 episodes of a show that you won't actually feel bad about binging on.
