I am looking to ditch my cable TV. I don't want to pay the monthly $90+ for a lousy selection of channels, most of which we either don't watch or that we can stream live online.  I watch a lot of pro sports and I am able to stream them from various websites free.  
 
Can anyone suggest how to best set up our 3 household TVs - and with what equipment so that I can make the transition to getting rid of our cable a reality?  Currently we simply use HDMI lines to connect a laptop or phone to a TV to stream whatever we want on a big screen.  Would it be best to designate 1 device for each TV in order to stream whatever we wish to stream?  Would it be best to buy an Amazon fire stick or cube?  Or what about a Roku?  Apple TV or Google Chromecast?  
 
No idea how to best sort this out.  I do know that there are some very inexpensive Internet cable option available these days.  For example: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
Please advise if you can to assist with this transition.  THANKS!

Good information but seems more geared to the U.S.  Being in Canada it's a little different...

Some Canada related ideas linked below, I found it interesting. Didn't know there was such a difference between Canada and US cable especially when cutting the cord.

 

River TV looked interesting too.
