To @tycory27 - Depending on which channels you want, you may or may not be able to achieve this goal.
Cable-type channels want to be paid. When you have a paid subscription to a provider service, like Dish, that carries these channels, they receive their pay out of the subscription fees you pay that provider. When you don't have a subscription to such a provider you are not paying for those channels.
Many cable-type channels only make their programming available for streaming to those paying for them through a provider as mentioned above. That service doesn't have to be a bloated cable or satellite service however. There are several you can subscribe to and run on a Roku that may carry the channels you are interested in. Ones that come to mind to check out for any particular channel would include YouTube TV (which you can access from the regular YouTube channel app on Roku), Hulu plus Live TV, Sling, philo, and AT&T TV -- there may be others.
Savings in cord cutting usually come from picking and choosing which of the offerings you wish to pay for instead of paying for full blown cable or satellite services with scores of channels you never watch.
