So I've recently dumped my service with DirecTV, I was tired of being raped on pricing. I want to go to the new school (live streaming)

Have any all of y'all tried streaming services? Pros, Cons ETC? I want to make the switch but I would like to get some feedback on different options be I dive in head first.

Thanks in advance!

And, Happy New Year!

I'm using Youtube TV. It has an app built in to my TV, but the XBOX app works just as well. It works well with a chromecast too, but the phone app doesn't give you the "guide" view that lets you see a channel/time grid like the native Tv and XBOX apps. For $35 a month I get unlimited DVR and all the basic and local channels and I can share it with 5 family members through Google's family share.

Sites like that your browser / antivirus might block by agenda. You'll need Tor browser.

Some just live by torrents. A lot of the "tracker" sites need Tor now too. You also need a "client" app to load the .torrent files from the "tracker" sites.

And the KODI appliance (dont get in the UK). Its sort of streaming torrents / those other stream sites, in an appliance box. No monthly fee.

Then there's netflix/hulu/etc appliances. Roku I played with during Irma it was sleek simple and loaded with many 'proper' services.

Then Apple TV, but I cant speak much to it other than you can network you computer video music files in the house with a setup I saw years ago, and it does the services I guess.

I've used Roku and stream Slingbox, Hulu, Netflix, Hbo and am very happy. I chose to get ATT small business internet as my family are gamers and I didn't want to pay for overages in internet bandwidth.

I cut the cord about two years ago. Roku offers many different selections for streaming; many free.

I pay about $55/mo for unlimited internet.

I love my roku device.
Amazon prime sucks.
Netflix is good.
Hulu is ok but upgrade to no commercials.

Sling tv is 20 bucks and has nice options but it was always buffering even with fast dsl.

Kodi box with a VPN. The OS looks great and you can stream live sport in HD as well as watching everything else. VPN is a must and you need a good ISP.

Aside from the HBO, this is my setup exactly. In addition to the other above mentioned paid services, the Roku offers many other free "channels".

Best thing I ever did was "cutting the cord"

Family members went with Hulu, apple TV and netflix from Xfinity and haven't looked back. I can say I have no clue, but their TV works just fine, no buffering.

Being a idjit I'm just using netflix and youtubes with a internet connection on the laptop. Been off regular cable for 5 years an don't miss it. OK...I miss the western channel, but will live.
