So it seems like a lot of yall use some sort of "other" source to get your streaming service. I was coming in here to see what were the best of the commercial ones but this shite seems too smart for me.

I guess I will just try the trials and see what I like. The only thing is during baseball season I like to have ATTSportsnet here in the HOuston area to get Astros games. Seems like, Other than another streaming source, my only options are Fubo and DirecTV stream. Any of yall use a regular streaming service and stream your games on something else like sportseast?

Nah man. It’s not hard if the provider walks you through it. The guys I use walk you through it, and if you don’t like it, they give you your money back.

I am thinking about just going easy and rolling with sling then at some point get the HD antenna or whatever for the local channels. The local news I watch streams from their own app so that isnt much of an issue but it will be when more sports come back around. Then at some point I will more than likely do the Hulu live thing.

my cox bill just went up again this month. 399/mo and its f'ing ridiculous. vampires.

im long overdue. ive watched a few summary vids and what not and think i know what i need to do. it sounds like "cable 2.0" is the route for easiest transition. right now im not sure if hulu live or youtube tv is better. wouldn't mind some input on their current state.

is there another option thats popular here with the TD group?

There are free trials for all the big ones. Just give each a shot and cancel after a week. Don’t let us make this decision for you

We're 24 hours into a post-corded life. Still haven't formally canceled Directv and will once we record what we want off the DVRs.

We are trying Fubo and I'm trying hard to see any downside to it. 4K? Check, Local channels? Check, "moving" locals to wherever my VPN has servers? Double big check.

Am I missing something? The only downfall is that I routinely captured video through a PVR off the satellite box. It's there a stream capturing program out there that works well on PC? Not having 5.1 audio is also up there but that's why we have the traditional OTT services. (I give zero f*cks about TBS/TNT/Tru and only give a few f*cks about History and A&E.)

Do I still need to buy a digital antenna?


Decide what local channels you want to receive and see if YTTV carries them. I am with YTTV and they have my locals in the basic plan I have. However, I do have a digital antennae for backup just in case my internet were to be down.

Any one have experience with Apollo Group TV? It's an IPTV provider. I was recently told about it and have been longing of cutting the cord. My issue is terribly slow internet service.

If you have slow internet, don’t waste your time. No IPTV service can over come that.

How do you even watch porn with that kind of speed?

In other news, I am looking for a new IPTV as my old one got shut down. Any recommendations out there? Don't need movies, TV shows, etc, just need it for live sports (College Football, Soccer, NFL, College Basketball).

Terribly slow for sure. You could maybe get by with 15-25 down.

Have been waiting for Starlink to become available in my area since 2021. I recently got an email about them offer Best-effort type service. Have a friend who upgrade to best effort from waiting list and is apparently running 50-60mbps at peak times (Which is when they supposedly slow you down as you aren't a TRUE member yet) and 115-150 during normal hours. Id like to end my DirecTV marriage but am hesitant until I am sure I can stream without issue.

50-60 should work fine. Can likely easily stream on multiple devices. Of course higher is always better.

I have DirectTV streaming right now. No NBC and now no FOX, I am switching this week. Want to be set before football starts. I've done some comparing, and for what my family watches, I am between Hulu and Youtube tv. For what i want its looking like Hulu, with the Sports and unlimited streaming packages. That would be about $90 a month. Youtube for similar would be $93. with the identical add ons, Hulu just gives me more of the channels we watch. The only isues i have is with youtube you can get 4K, with Hulu its mostly HD with some things in 4K. Wanted to see if anyone else has had experience with either or both and their Pros and Cons to each.
