    Thanks for that. Have wanted to check out this cord cutting but didn't know how to start.

    I did a search for broadcaster antennas expecting to see 3, 6 & 12 out of Shreveport. To my surprise the map showed no broadcasters reaching Minden. I guess either they don't broadcast that way any more or push a lot less signal. I like to get the local news & thats been a deterrent to cutting the cord. But recently I noticed ksla saying they are available on Roku. If ktbs will follow suit maybe cord cutting is possible.

    KSLA is on roku. They are also on PS Vue. Abc, nbc & fox are on demand- no local news.

    Here's a good breakdown of services available: 1) What device is each service available? 2) What channels?

    http://cordcuttersnews.com/fubo-tv-v...tube-tv-break/

    If you are looking to cut the cord, my advice is try a free trial first.

    Is their HSI even available here locally? I know some businesses have it, but how do residential customers get it?

    Edit: They are not the ISP. The cost is over and above any current cost customers pay for internet service.

    Might be good for folks with unlimited phone data.

    I found this, FuboTV, that is more sports oriented. This is the first I've heard of it and the reviews are that it is still limited in its offering.

    Re: Getting Rid of Cable Just got EASIER!

    Comcast has a new service in BETA for Comcast Internet users only http://cordcuttersnews.com/comcast-a...ting-18-month/

    Looks a lot like crappy cable to me - $18 + 30 + 15 + 10= 73. I get the same stuff (except Discovery's channels and Viacom) for $45 with PS Vue.

    The service starts with a $18 a month core package that includes locals like ABC, FOX, and NBC. You will also find C-Span, QVC, and HSN. From there you can add additional packages on top of the $18 a month core package to get more channels.
    Here are all the add-ons Comcast currently offers:
    • Sports and News ($30 per month): CNBC, CNN, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN News, ESPNU, Fox Business, Fox News, Fox Sports 1, Golf Channel, MSNBC, NBC Sports, NFL Network and regional sports networks based on market.
    • Entertainment ($15 per month): A&E, AMC, Animal Planet, BET, Bravo, Comedy Central, Discovery Channel, E!, Food Network, FX, FXX, Hallmark Channel, History, HGTV, Lifetime, OWN, Syfy, TBS, TNT, TV One, USA, VH1.
    • Kids and Family ($10 per month): Cartoon Network, Disney Channel, Disney Junior, Disney XD, Freeform, MTV, National Geographic Channel, Nick Jr., Nickelodeon, NickToons, Universal Kids, TeenNick, TLC.
    • Latino ($5 per month): BabyFirst, CNN en Español,Cine Dinamita, Cine Latino, Cine Mexicano, Cine Sony Television, Discovery Familia, Discovery en Español, Galavisión, History en Español, Pasiones, Viendo Movies, Vme Kids.
    • Deportes ($7 per month): beIN, beINñ, ESPN Deportes, Fox Deportes, LAS, NBCUniverso, Univision tDN. (Telemundo, Unimas and Univision are provided when not included in the broadcast tier)
    So if you want ESPN the Comcast package will cost you $48 a month plus taxes.
