Cutting the cable

Yo,

Looking to drop Comcast as we never watch it, with the only exception of football. Thinking the rest of fudge we sometimes watch, I can find on-line the day after it airs or will eventually find on netflix.

Anyone have ideas as to being able to watch sports without comcast? I often hear about roku or fudge like that...

thanks

We do Roku w/ Slingbox. NFL Network, Redzone is standard, ESPN is extra. Then just get an antenna for local TV - won't be going back to DirecTV or Comcast ever again.

We just dropped DirecTV a couple of weeks ago for PS Vue. So far, so good. For NFL, they have the local games and a $10 Red Zone add on option.

I ditched cable with Cox and got YouTube TV and some Chromecasts for $35 bucks/month. Unlimited DVR and I can add 5 people to my plan. Plus, Google will send you a free Chromecast after the first bill cycle.

Works great for me. All I really need is Sportscenter and FS1. Only bummer is no NFL Network for TNF, but heard some games will be on Amazon Prime/CBS/NBC in the coming weeks.

Until they raise the price of internet to what the cable/internet bundle costs now, and include cable for free.

Scott,

our Comcast for internet is like $65 a month. I went to the store after they raised it to see whats up. Needless to say we have internet and now like 50 channels for $72 a month.

I didn't want cable, but essentially we need the internet to access anything like Netflix, etc. So we use an amazon fire stick with it. No complaints here.

Same here, but the sports (nfl) streams can be so choppy at times.
