We have Fire TV, DTVN, Tablo and OTA antenna. Saving $115/mo. But is there a better alternative in Baton Rouge-Central area to Cox for internet? And is our router terribly out of date? I think it was provided by Cox, it’s a Cisco DPQ3925.

I have ATT and have wished I had Cox back for awhile now. It wasn't until I just switched to the gigabit with ATT I've been actually been happy with it. That's the only thing I would switch from Cox for.

The provided equipment sucks. I got my own modem/router and it was a world of difference.

Ok so i am getting serious about getting rid of cable. I am anywhere from vaguely familiar to highly proficient with using many of the services mentioned through the course of this thread.

Does anyone use actual satellite tv anymore? If so, what are your experiences with it? I’ve linked one that i am looking pretty hard at. And suggestions for others? Or suggestions to convince me this isn’t a good idea? I honestly haven’t really dig deep enough to know whether this is a good idea. What i definitely want is the live tv channels. One thing that will drive me away from this satellite is if I’ll have to spend 20 min figuring out where to point it every time i wanna watch a game.

Currently i use RTC cable, and i have amazon prime and fire tv and i use terrarium as well. I’m willing to either add on, or dump it all and start over.

Well, you can now kiss Terrarium bye. Morpheus is a good replacement, but not sure how much longer that one will work.

Also, a lot of people do not realize this, but if you have AT&T cell phone service, you do get HBOGo for free. On your phone, smarttv, firetv... it isn't live tv, but it has every episode of every HBO show made and the episodes are usually up and running right when the show starts on live tv. I think you get Hulu free if you have Sprint.

Other option, like a few of us did, and this is just an example, you pay for netflix, another friend pays for Hulu, another pays for Espn, another pays for whatever..and then just all exchange the usernames and passwords. Works well so far for us, though ESPN gets testy if you are watching in one city and another person is in another city watching using the same account. But, as long as these services allow streaming from a few different devices at the same time, why not?

I just noticed Mobdro added the SEC Channel to their line-up. Watching it now.. That's not saying it will be there when it really counts.

There's some IPTV services that have me interested. You pretty much have to have an VPN for safety and reducing potential throttling. But I tried a month, and it was pretty legit for $5/month. Not sure if I should list the particular service. But it had about 1600+ channels, with a ton in HD. Though I've heard during big events, some can get clogged with too much traffic. A lot of people have 2 of them as a backup. Getting 2 with a VPN is under $20. I've heard to stay away from ones with 5-6,000 channels, because most won't work worth a damn.

Mobro just has terrible quality and buffering issues on any decent channel.

Ttv is dying, and quicker than Morpheus because of the developer. But a few of the mods still works great if you have a subscription scraper. I think they've changed the API key so the developer doesn't have access. There's worth it, imo. A few features have died, but nothing major.

People are working on new apps to replace ttv. There's some talk of them becoming open source, so one person won't be able to shut it down like with ttv. I think some are trying to mod ttv, to keep it alive. I'm sure parts of the code will be integrated. But you've gotta have sources to find things.

But right now, teatv night be the best option. I can't get the new South Park on ttv. Apparently there's been an update. So it might be better than it was before

My setup is below and i love it.

Showbox for movies/tv(best IMO by far, even better than terrarium), NoSleep(IPTV) for live tv.

Backups are TeaTV for movies/tv and mobdro for live tv.
Also use a browser for sportshd.me for back up on live sports.

Is there some free apps or other sources to watch some basic cable channels? Just moved out of my house to a temp location while my new house is being finished up. Got the over the air digital antenna which works out great for local channels. I don't want to spend anything really and I know you crazy kids are on the tip of technology. I miss my Fox News, TLC, Discovery and ESPN for college football. I've tried Hulu and it's not live TV. That's ultimately what I'm looking for. I don't need much.

Get Mobdro, it's free and reliable. Just bad quality.

Haven't had a chance to read the whole thread but looking to make a jump, currently have DirecTV

Current hardware
5 TV's(2 main TVs that need all content, a third that needs the main networks(ABC, CBS, etc.), SECn and ESPN. Two remaining TVs can get by with access to Netflix, Amazon, HBO, and PBS.
I have a Roku 4k from last year. 2017 Fire Stick and old original Chromecast
Use Google Home in house as well

The main cable/network channels needed are
A&E, ABC, Bravo, CBS, Comedy Central, ESPN, Fox, FX, HBO, HGTV, Hist, MTV, NBC, PBS, SECn, TBS, TLC, TNT

We dont really stream much at this point, just Amazon and Netflix

Currently we have 2 service providers in my hood, Xfinity (up to 150 mbps) and AT&T (up to 1.5mbps). So Xfinity is the better option. They also offer a bundle package with cable 140 channels for similar prices for 24 months 79.99 or no contract 89.99. However once you add a box and HD/DVR service that goes to 109.99 prior to any other fees they might hide and that is for one TV($10 per box after).


I dont mind spending some money on good hardware to get setup if needed.

Lead me in the direction I need to go

In case anyone hasn't heard, networks on Youtube TV besides CBS have removed their DVR restrictions that temporarily replaced many newly recorded shows with shitty VOD copies having unskippable commercials. Now, they're providing the recorded shows with skippable broadcast commercials. This is like putting three bullets in the gun. Now we got a game!

I’ve been happy with my set up so far. I’m running Roku on a Tcl tv. Charter 100 meg internet. I think sling blue with an adder pack so my wife can have Bravo and shite like that. I’m still logging into espn/ nbc/ fox apps on the roku with my charter log in. If I need cbs I pay then cancel. I swap between Netflix and Hulu depending on what I feel like watching. Paying about.$120 a month but can still get it down a bit I think. Still better than $200 + with charter tv.

Does playstation vue have a cloud service to tape and watch stuff later? And is it HD quality?

I've messed with roku and did not like the quality of most of the stuff. I really didn't search for channels on the net, so i'm sure there is stuff in HD, i didn't find it, and it was several years ago.

Also, if yall don't know yet.

For PPV and Sports i use SportsHD.Me for my backup when my IPTV is down. It's actually more reliable than IPTV. Less buffering and always up, just less user friendly.

I use it using Silk Browser on Fire TV
