Still bullshit. The cable companies still won't let me see the one team I care about (just because I live in the area).

+Wulgreth Theonly I assume you are referring to using Kodi add-ons like Fusion? A relative of mine uses Kodi exclusively through a Raspberry Pi 3, and it is absolutely rock-solid. But I personally have two reservations with this setup:

1. While Kodi does provide excellent choice, (stunning, really) the overall user experience is often marginal compared to something like Netflix or Hulu+ on a Roku box. He experiences delays and buffering issues regularly (despite a solid, 60Mbps cable connection.) It's just not quite as "appliance-like" as Roku is.

2. I'm still not convinced of the legality of using Kodi with add-ons that provide current content for free. Isn't the whole infrastructure (especially add-ons like Fusion) dependent on an independent community to provide the links? Are aren't the links simply part of a torrent-style distributed network? I just have a hard time believing that the available content is in any way legally hosted.

Gripe
I logged into Hulu to find that my regular programming was switched to what is called the watch list.
Offensively, shows I had like 'I love Lucy' and a 3 part Jimi Hendrix documentary, were replaced by the bathroom humors of 'South Park' and 'Family Guy', which I hadn't watched in years.
i don't know why they thought they could get away with replacing my own choices with theirs, but it is a metaphor for bad!
My Hulu subscription is now cancelled.

Sling TV and NBCSports Question

This came to mind now because Sling TV is in the news. Anyway, the only thing I miss about having cable is being able to easily watch any English Premier League match. Every match is available streaming on the NBCSports website, but you have to log in via your cable provider. Sling TV does not appear to be on their list of valid providers to log in with.

Anyway, are these streams available on Sling TV, or does it only carry what is actually broadcast on the NBCSports cable channel?

The war is on.
Sling is adding several new networks to its streaming-video roster, but restrictions remain for households that want to watch many channels at once.

+Stan Gosnell​ They introduced a blue and orange combo package. There are channels in both orange and blue that I want, and they are not available as add ons. Also, the add ons changes between the two packages too. Look at the kids lineup for example.

This is the reason I won't be continuing my netflix subscription as well. The first few years of netflix streaming were great. So many hard to find/cult/older classic movies were available. Those are gone now. And I honestly couldn't care less about netflix originals or all of the straight-to-video shit they have on there now.
It used to be impossible to choose something to watch on Netflix because there were so many great movies and TV shows. But now, it feels like it can be

I like the control that these two gives you. There's no need to call the cable company to connect or disconnect, just hit subscribe or unsubscribe.
Why Sling TV and PlayStation Vue are more than just an old channel bundle with a new delivery mechanism.

+Tony Freels Hulu and Netflix are more established services so they come preloaded on my Sony Smart TV.

I'm not sure if SlingTV or PS Vue are available through Android TV.

As I was re-watching NBC's Heroes Reborn, I saw an ad for new show called Timeless.

NBC's Timeless follows the adventures of three time travelers as they back to 1937 to stop criminals from changing the past. The show's tone seems to fall somewhere in between the campy, comedic CW's Legends of Tomorrow and the dark, somber SyFy's 12 Monkeys.

I'm looking forward to seeing (yet another) time traveling adventure show in the fall.

NBC's Timeless will start Over-The-Air on October 3rd. Episodes will be able to stream the day after from NBC's Website and App without credentials.

Curious as to whether the community sees any value in Hulu if they have a Tivo? Do you really get anything compelling to justify having both? Already have PS Vue, Amazon Prime, Netflix and several movies on UV/Vudu. We canx'd Hulu when we went to PS Vue and while I liked the commercial free part I don't feel as if I lost anything. Just curious as to whether I am missing something truly compelling that is exclusively on Hulu.

It really does depend on how you watch TV. Hulu, much like Netflix, and Amazon Prime Video, is a complementary service to your existing cable or cable like service. I subscribe to a bunch of services, mainly because I'm just a freak for this stuff, but every service has a few things the other doesn't have and they are all pretty cheap. It probably is a little bit wasteful to keep them all. Not being a cable subscriber frees up some funds and any of it can be turned off at any time with a few clicks of a mouse.

Hmmmm, wonder does this mean my multi-stream bill will go up $5 per month? Wonder when this will go into effect for current users.

Update: Just looked at their blog. Looks like subscribers to the beta will continue to be locked into the multi-stream (Sling Blue) for $20 per month. Great!

Yeah, Sling is supposedly working with them to alter that. ESPN can be streamed on multiple devices on other services such as Playstation VUE. Doesn't make much sense why they're holding off with Sling.
