    If you been thinking of cutting the cord, but don't know what streaming service to pick, here is a great site https://www.suppose.tv

    You can use different filters to determine what service(s) is(are) the best fit for you and the monthly cost.

    Filter Options - Devices - DVR - Channels, etc

    sportdawg, I have three "streaming" devices - a Sumsung Blue Ray Player, a Sony Blue Ray Player and a Phillips TV. At least they all have WiFi which lets me get HULU, Netflix etc. I am thinking about HULU live for about $50/mo which includes the regular HULU, too. Do you have any experience with them? Especially the sports channels.

    My in-laws just signed up for Hulu w/ Live TV. I haven't played around with it much. But here are my quick thoughts (All of this was on a ROKU, so I don't know if the format is different onyour setup) - it doesn't have a traditional "TV Guide" if you need that type of thing. It has a list of channels and underneath shows what's on.

    We watch the Michigan/Loyola Chicago game on Hulu and everything was fine.

    In Houston, it looks like you get all of your locals.
    For Tech Sports - it comes with CBS Sports Net & SEC Network (which we'll probably have 2 games there next year). It does not have beIN sports if we play there - but you can get a free Sling Trial to watch. It does not have AT&T Sportsnet SW if you're a Astros/Rockets fan, but it does have Fox Sports SW if you're a Rangers fan.

    Thanks. I also see you can watch on two devices at one time. I find Netflix funny. If the Sony device is on first I can watch on my Samsung, but not vice versa.
    My wife has a lot of recorded on U-verse right now so we are kind of waiting until she's seen all she wants. I see that HULU has some free Cloud recording but I am thinking about a TiVO. I already have one antenna and it gets super reception HD because we're only about 2-3 miles from the transmitters. We have bout 60 or 70 HD channels but I can't figure out what's on them. A lot of Indian and other ethnic groups - of course Hispanic.

    Getting ready to pull the trigger and need to see about internet options in Shreveport. AT&T says they don't service my address with DSL in Shreve Island. I've got Comcast now and could stay with them for high speed, but is anyone familiar with any other services?

    Do you not have access AT&T Fiber (U-Verse) yet? I'd stick with comcast. Call them and tell them your switching to AT&T and they may reduce your bill.

    I don't think we have access to any other providers.

    I'm paying $70 for AT&T.

    Re: Getting Rid of Cable Just got EASIER!

    Question for the tech wizards. I've got a 10 yr old Sony 52" with a matched Sony theater system. The interface to the internet is cumbersome but I'm use to it so it's been fine. The picture and sound are excellent. With all these different streaming option I'm wondering if it's time to update and get new equipment? Are the new TV/internet interfaces truly easier to use? Or maybe there are things on the horizon that would make waiting a little longer the thing to do.

    (Not an Apple guy and too invested in Android to swap over, so Apple TV isn't an option)

    Thanks in advance.

    I use ROKU on all my TVs. I love it. Pretty easy to learn how to use and LOTS of channel options (they don't call them apps).

    Here are some how to use videos https://support.roku.com/category/20...etting-started

    Just found out KTBS will be rolling out their Roku app in about 2 weeks. Think it may be time to cut that cord.

    A huge part of cutting the cord is buying a decent antenna. If you go to Antenna Web, you can put in your address to determine what type of antenna you need. You can usually get ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, PBS and CW in your area, plus all the subchannels of those.

    Yeah, checked that out a while back. Even with a 30' tower I get no signal from any station anywhere. That's why I've been waiting for the Roku app for KTBS. I didn't want to be limited to just KSLA.

    I expect I'll pick up a Roku Ultra in the next week or two.
