If you bought a 4K TV recently (and it’s a good time to start looking at one), you’re going to need a way to get your 4K-compatible shows onto that screen. Today, we’re breaking down three of the best set-top boxes that can offer 4K (or UHD) streaming.

The CW just made it a whole lot easier to watch new seasons of The Flash, Arrow, Legends, and Supergirl.

After moving to an area that our Dish satellite doesn't work (the Dish technician said there are too many trees around the house), and having to settle for Comcast (Verizon being on strike at the time), my wife and I have found that we hate Comcast! Can anyone please post suggestions/links to how we should go about Cutting The Cord?

chances are, if you can connect your computer to your TV, then it's like a monitor.  So you will need to look at the back of your Tv and tell us whether or not you can connect a computer to it.

If it has an HDMI port, DVI or VGA port, then yes you can stream YouTube over the tv.  Essentially your TV becomes the monitor.

Otherwise, you will need to get a Roku, AppleTV or Chromecast to do that.

WIll two OTA antennas (each oriented differently) help my situation?

I currently use a Mohu Leaf 50, and with the best orientation I can get 4 of the 5 major channels, but not CBS consistently. If I orient the antenna differently, I can get CBS just fine, but then lose one or two of the other channels.

Does it sound reasonable that if added a second OTA antenna (with each oriented appropriately), and then combined their outputs via a two-to-one coax splitter/combiner, that I'd then get all 5 channels delivered to my Tivo?

Add'l info: I can get the 2nd indoor antenna free. I'm reluctant to invest in better/more expensive outdoor antennas for a lot of reasons.

I'm not an NFL fan but this is good stuff for us cord cutters! 
Are you ready for some football? We are! Starting today, NFL Network will launch nationwide on PlayStation Vue, so you can access NFL coverage 24/7 using PlayStation Vue’s unique streaming features. Also starting today, users who subscribe to a PlayStation Vue plan that includes NFL Network can also subscribe to NFL RedZone.

yeah it's great news, cut out my cable service several months ago from my ISP/Cable TV company and don't miss the Cable TV, what I was paying was ridiculous anyhow, and this PS Vue service is much better offering than what I was getting from Mediacom, I would of had to pay extra sports package on top of what I already was paying which was nuts just to get this, and PS Vue just adds NFL Network anyhow without any price increase, love that about the service, get stuff added off and on without any upcharge, it's great! and no stupid contract......

A good explanation of cord-cutters problems with NBC's handling of the Olympics

Bloomberg and NBC want to blame the audience for not participating in their content the way they expected them to. But if the results were…

+Orion Thrower But on that point it's not the commercials that are the issue, at least not directly. Yeah I definitely like not having them if I have the option, but I accept them where they exist. Like on YouTube, I'm ok with not having the ad blocker turned on and seeing a few ads play before the video or in a sidebar (privacy concerns aside). I think NBC's handling of it by not posting online with ads as other companies in other countries have done is troublesome. I'm not against them letting you sign in with a cable provider of you have that, provided that it maybe gives you a better experience.

After using Sling for half a football game, my decision is made. I will stick with psvue as the service is far superior in almost every way except for a better choice of packages. Although the $50 psvue price is very affordable.

Sling has issues where the video stalls but the sound keeps playing than the video speeds up to catch up and re sync. Also on the xb1 it has completely shut down on me and returned to the dashboard.
 
Now I have to decide. I have the trial for sling to watch nfl network (ps vue is supposed to have the channel Inbound) and still have ps vue. The other factor is the vue has an awesome cloud dvr and sling has nothing.

So let's see what a week brings

yeah stick with VUE, I've given sling plenty opportunity to take my money as tried 3 months or so and can say it never got better, would work fine for like a week out of 4 and the rest of the time there was problems, various kinds.........ps vue not perfect either, but at least I only have problems maybe once a week or so, not 3 or 4 times a day like sling.....

It combines it with an antenna, and if they improve the UI it could be awesome. Tablo's UI is slow and leaves a lot to be desired.

Let’s breakdown a few of the hidden cost that many of these companies hide. First, there are taxes, and there are a …

Well I for one wont go back until they offer al le carte programming. That's what I want and that's the reason I left them. I got tired of paying for 200 channels of which I only watched 20 of them. So until that happens, I wont be going back.

Started a podcast to spread the word on cord cutting. The latest episode discusses the trials and tribulations of Municipal Internet.
Municipal Internet in the United States has the potential to save many from the tyranny of ISPs. Find out how some areas of the country use municipal internet to provide affordable high speed internet access to the public. Also find out who is trying to stop these efforts for their own financial gain.

Here's another example. I lived in a nice neighborhood in unincorporated Orange County CA. One day the City of Aliso Viejo proclaimed their desire to annex capture our neighborhood, to place it under their rule. I spoke with many neighbors, finding none in favor of joining the city. A vote was held including many residents of various neighborhoods being annexed. Apparently the measure passed and without the consent of any person I personally know we were now part of the Incorporated City of Aliso Viejo.

As a result property taxes and assessments increased, though as far as anyone could tell we received no additional services for that money. The brought nothing to the table. The city was just seeking to increase its revenue base. Soon the city declared we could no longer park our cars on the street in front of our residences. We has two cars, both too tall to fit in our garage so we had to park nearly 1/2 a mile away now. We ended up moving because it was just too difficult to remain there under their tyrannical rule.

Tried out PS Vue this morning for some live sports... Quality is good, and no issues with the programming at all. However, turns out you can't really pause live TV for very long, which I discovered after having to take the dog out for a few minutes. Lost a little bit of action there, but the fix to that is easy. Either a) the dog will have to wait, or b) someone else will have to take the dog out...

If you're using a PC, I'd like to recommend SelectTV. For just $2.99 it's a service that puts all of the online media out there in one place; if it's available to be streamed online, SelectTV has it! This includes free ad-supported content, that which you can access via a subscription service you may have (e.g. Netflix), and options to rent or buy episodes and movies with price comparisons. I can even give you a code that will let you sign up at a discounted rate. Just visit http://selecttv.com/offer and use the promo code GOOGLE. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions.

Has there been anymore information or announcement from Hulu about the proposed streaming service? The last information from May, 2016 is it would be available late fall 2016. It is getting close to fall and nothing.

I want to see what they will offer before I test Sling (pretty much a no for now) and PS Vue.

So Cord Cutters News started to dig around for more details. So let’s take a look …
