Canceling Sling TV just too many issues. Tried to watch the game tonight and got nothing but the orange circle. Try to watch ESPN and it buffers a lot. Sports are the only reason, I care for live TV.

I'm gonna go ahead and try PsVue.

Hey, I'm a recent cord cutter (going on a month now). My only connection to xfinity is my high speed Internet and basic local channels as PSVue doesn't offer them in my area... Is there a cheap alternative to paying for basic cable? I need Fox, CBS, NBC and ABC.

I cut the cord once. Much to my pride and astonishment, I lasted a year! However, I had to go back to DirecTV because the TWO isp's around wizened up and started placing very real caps on data streaming. 250 or 300 GB's a month. I am far right on the political spectrum, very much in favor of free market capitalism. But I can't for the life of me understand why such monopolies are allowed to exist.

History channel really a subscription service for $4.99/month. I don't subscribe to many services and I have subscription fatigue. That being said, this looks like more of the traditional history channel. Less about Aliens and pawn shops.

+Rob Hoerning Netflix: 12.99 + Hulu w/no commercials: 11.99 + Amazon Prime: 8.25 + CBS All Access: 5.99 = $39.22 per month. Dish cost us $119 per month for America's 250 plan, 1 Hopper, & 1 Joey. The difference is $79.78 per month or about $950 per year.

It's official 
Slated for 2017, the new subscription service would stream network and cable TV shows live instead of a day later. It's yet another way cable-cutters can view live content.

+Robert Grimm I agree with you that one of the main reasons for cutting the cord should be to get rid of the schedule but many cut the cord simply as a price reduction and still want to have exactly what they had before. Most of the time this is not easy to achieve. Add buffering of video to the mix and the reasons for cutting the cord are not as obvious as they were in the beginning.

Is Roku kissing Comast's ass now that we'll see the xfinity app on Roku. Seems like it. Time to ditch the Roku?

This is a few days old but something worth noteing
YouTube is working on a plan to launch online TV service in 2017. They will provide the service by the subscription-based streaming service called “Unplugged.” YouTube has set the high priority on this project and this project might come in to live in the coming year. As of now YouTube is the best video services

Can anyone recommend and HD antenna with HDMi cable, rather than coaxial, or is there such a thing?

The Tablo is decent. It requires an external USB hard drive and I had initially hooked one up that I had salvaged from a PC and placed in a drive enclosure. That was a mistake and I was resetting it a lot. Once I put a newer external drive that was an actual USB drive, it has worked pretty well and I have rarely needed to reset. There are a number of different devices you can stream to. I've streamed it to Roku, FireTV, PC (browser), and Android. There are other devices that are supported as well. https://www.tablotv.com/

Now this looks very interesting. I encourage you to read the article about what uploaders can do.
Amazon is already battling Netflix and Spotify and plenty of content providers, but it wants an even bigger challenge.

+Mike W I agree with you about the "red tape" argument. It's impossible to use Amazon services without becoming entangled in Amazon selling. Just using a Fire stick to connect with Amazon Prime Video immediately entangles you with for-sale items in addition to Prime items. I'm assuming that is intentional but when you are navigating via a limited remote unit it quickly becomes confusing and very frustrating. I have to think that an Amazon video service would also involve crossover entanglement within the Amazon selling infrastructure.

Ordered these from Amazon the same day I ordered a new tivo Ota. Now that I have them I'm reading online that tivo does not recommend using these for the tivo mini. I have no way of getting ethernet cables to my mini or tivo Ota. Has anyone tried using powerline adapters like these with tivo mini? (my tivo should be delivered to me by Monday... Super excited to call charter and tell them to cancel my service 😀☺️🙃🙆)

Not quite cutting the cord, but a step in that direction.

Here in Canada, the broadcast regulator, the CRTC, has mandated all cable companies to provide a basic TV subscription plan capped at $25/month. The order took effect March 1. While the adoption figure so far, 66,000, is not exactly indicative of an avalanche of support, it is significant given that the telcos have completely resisted promotion of the new plan, and are in fact overtly discouraging their uptake.

The CRTC has spelled out what such a plan must offer and has allowed a small option: the carriers may provide the five American channels in the package, that is ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox, PBS. So far, here in the west, only one telco, Shaw Communications, has elected to carry these channels.

Effective December 1 the telcos must also offer complete a la carte channel pricing and stop tying a particular channel to a bundle.

Mind you the sports channels make these high-priced bundles work I suppose. Yes, it will be a bit of a mess and I assume there will be channels that fall by the wayside.
