I'm a huge fan of psvue. And they added my local CBS at no additional cost. 
Sony's live TV streaming service, PlayStation Vue, has several plans, add-ons, and special features. This handy guide will help you understand them all.

I get local Fox, CBS, and ABC. Sucks that my HD antenna doesn't pick up NBC where I live, so I miss out on Sunday night football.

It is tempting... but the lack of an andoridTV amazon video app is a show stopper.

If you're a fan of dystopian sci-fi dramas and tv shows, then you may like SyFy's Incorporated which came out late last year. With Executive Producers Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, Incorporated paints a bleak picture of the future in 2074, but also makes for an exciting drama. The show follows Ben Larson, an up and coming executive for Spiga Corporation.

You can watch the first four (4) episodes on SyFy's website without any credentials. More recent shows require credentials.

http://www.syfy.com/incorporated
Set in a future where companies have seemingly unlimited power, Incorporated centers around Ben Larson, a young executive who risks everything to infiltrate the all-controlling corporate world and save the woman he loves. In the process, he will take on the entire system -- with deadly consequences. Incorporated comes from executive producers Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Ted Humphrey and Jennifer Todd.

Rumours have been around for a couple of years, so I'm not going to get excited over this just yet.
Rumors have been flying about nearly every aspect of Google's entry into over-the-top streaming

Michael, I think if you drop a cable subscription, install an antenna for local channels and use streaming services for additional materiel then you are cutting the cord. The idea is to get from underneath the cable giants that are sucking us dry with fees, box rentals and hundreds of channels we don't watch but still pay for. These internet services (Vue, Sling, Direct) are simply the next step until we reach the platform where we pick/pay what we want to watch.

Word of advice. The hardware seems not the best. 512k or ram and 4 gb of storage is very little. I would recommend the Xioami MiBox for $50 at Walmart. It has better hardware. Just my 2 cents.

I have cut the cord however I would like to buy my router/modem. It appears my router is no longer available new which most likely means it is out dated. I have another wireless router but that one is only 802.11n, not ac certified.

My cable company (Spectrum/Charter/TWC) has me at 300 MBs but I would also like cancel my phone (long story switching to Ooma) since there isn't the same speed with the new company they can only put me on either 100 or 500.

My brother-in-law says he has the cheapest speed (also with TWC) but only pays about $40 a month.

Any help would be appreciated.

Wireless N worked fine in my house though I have switched to AC now because my old router died. There should be a 5GHz channel for N as well. I set the 2.4GHz channel to be backwards compatible with G for older devices and did not check that on the 5GHz channel. I only have a 75Mbps download (UVerse). It's more than enough for HD video. As has been noted, a 720p video stream is only about 5Mbps. Even a 1080p at higher frame rates (for gaming) is only around 12Mbps so unless you have a very large household with large numbers of simultaneous streams, you don't need more than the 100Mbps connection. If you plan stream more than 1 or 2 4K video streams, then you would need to possibly bump up the bandwidth and the router

OTA Antenna - So far so good

Four years ago when my family cut the cord I got an antenna for pulling in local stations Over the Air (OTA). It was a bit of a challenge, because the nearest broadcast tower is 50 miles away. We do live up on a hill, which helps. With a bit of fussing and careful aiming, I got the antenna to work well enough to pull in all the major local stations except one: we could have our choice of either CBS or ABC, but not both. Over time, the signal seemed to get worse. NBC started to cut our frequently as well, depending on the weather.

I finally decided enough is enough, and ordered a new omni-directional antenna. Just spent the afternoon getting it mounted on the rooftop, under the eaves of the second story of our house. So far it's been working great. Every channel comes in crystal clear.

So at this point for those looking for an OTA solution, I'd highly recommend the 1byone. Easy to install and mount, good signal, and good price.

NBC's This Is Us is a relatively highly-rated dramedy (drama/comedy) about several people and how their lives are intertwined together in surprising ways.

The show follows Kate, a pretty plus-sized woman who's dealing with weight issues; Justin, an attractive sitcom star who's dealing with his career choices; and Randall, a successful businessman who's got his own family issues. The show also stars Milo Ventimiglia (Peter Petrilli from Heroes) and Mandy Moore.

The first four (4) episodes of NBC's This Is Us are available to stream for free without credentials on NBC's App and Website. More episodes are available with credentials and also with Hulu subscription (which I'm a subscriber).

If you're a fan of Marvel movies, then you may like Iron Man (2008). This is the one that started it all for Iron Man (and is probably the best).

Robert Downey Jr plays Tony Stark, a playboy millionaire who becomes Iron Man. Gweneth Paltrow plays Pepper Pots, Tony's assistant.

Iron Man (2008) is available for streaming on Hulu with a subscription on variety of devices.

After escaping from kidnappers using makeshift power armor, an ultra rich inventor and weapons maker (Robert Downey Jr.) turns his creation into a force for good by using it to fight crime.

The AirWave only needs power and WiFi to bring OTA signals to your phone, tablet or TV.

Back in the day, I had quite the CD collection. I even bought a 300-disc player to hold them all, making listening to my tunes more convenient. Not long after, online music became all the rage, making all of my compact discs obsolete. Now, I just stream songs and albums using Apple Music.

+Robert Diber Thanks for sharing. That's good to hear that Hulu will be getting more Disney content.

Netflix also has lots of Disney content including Marvel's Captain America: Civil War. I subscribe to both services, so Yay!
