My alternative solution has been Amazon Prime and Netflix.
Prime has really stepped it up. At first it sucked so bad. Now they are actually putting out some good content.
I noticed that too. I am watching more Prime lately.

Do you live near a major city where you can get over the air? Where I Live I get 30 channels over the air. ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, CW, PBS, QVC, etc... And better quality image than cable. They should provide her plenty to watch live.
I use an antenna in my attic for my main house TVs but for a TV I have out in my workshop and upper apartment I have a Mohu Leaf which picks up very well just stuck on a wall or window.
I still have cable but only because with my internet package it worked out cheaper to get the bundle. I rarely watch anything on it though except the news in the background. Like right now I have BBC News on.
I see no reason why your MIL can't learn to use to the Fire or Roku. They aren't difficult. My grandfather uses one.

i use my landline so that i don't microwave my skull with my (padded) cell phone when i'm at home. Chatting for long periods of time is easier on the land line (i wish it had a rotary dial). If i want to avoid random rings i just turn it off.
