It's been 3 years, so I'll create a new Cord Cutting thread. Suggestions are welcome
What are some things you'd like to see?

I'll go over the main topics again with updated information. Streaming services, set top boxes/devices, antenna information, etc.

The state of smart TVs and if they're good enough now or not. I assume most are still bad and outdated but many include Roku/Fire now.

I don't think these will ever be good enough. Streaming boxes/devices are so much cheaper and easier to update/modify.

Streaming Devices
Streaming Services
Home Media sharing services
DVR Options for Live TV

I’d recommend not creating a dedicated thread (IMO). It’s hard to cover it all and it gets buried. I’d do like the Money Board and Outdoor Board and simply create a FAQ type thread with links to various other threads. It allows it to be updated and maintained and evolve. Maybe a new cord cutting update is necessary, but as part of a bigger FAQ initiative.

Please ban that CAD dude from responding in this. He’ll type 7 paragraphs and argue with everyone for 23 pages who doesn’t agree with him

channel comparison on the different services(someone has a spreadsheet on this)
Internet speeds needed
Top Apps to use in different devices
Not sure if allowed, but maybe a list/links of other helpful forums on the matter as well.

Don't worry. None of his shite will be in the OP. I can't stop him from posting, though

Most basic and cheap setup for sports, local channels and DVR.

I still would like to know what I can do to get all three.

Agreed. One sticky thread to serve as an index would be much more manageable and useful.

Right now I'm using older fire TV boxes. Is anyone familiar with electricalMD?

VPN choices, pros and cons and personal experiences.

Your cord cutting threads have been extremely helpful.

How can I save this Google Doc into my Google Drive? Typically there is a Google Drive button that says add to my Google Drive but there's nothing on this one.

edit: here's a link that allows you to add to your google drive if you want. LINK

It would be good to talk about emerging technologies like 5G and when it could be deployed and when. This has the potential to be a huge disruptor and finally allow us to truly "cut the cord".

Not sure if this spreadsheet is broken down by zip code for the local channels, but this site does that, along with a bunch of other stuff. Just click the channels you want, and it lists out the best services for your desires.
