Media Center>Cutting Cable.
Dunit35 01:17 PM 12-19-2018
I know there are already several threads but Im adding to it.

Our DTV bill is about to go up $60 a month to $133. Were looking at cutting cable. Wed like to add Hulu live TV, netflix, and MLB.TV. I know I can stream all three through my Xbox. It looks like I wont have AMC, NFL Network or NBC. NFL Network I can stream the Thursday night games through my xbox.

How is the quality? We have to upgrade our internet to unlimited for an extra $20/month. Provider said wed also get faster speeds.
Does anyone have MLB.Tv and use it through your Xbox?
What about DVR services?

It looks like I can get all three for around $64 a month.

Again, no youtube tv on that stick. And then one for my daughter's tv. Any suggestions?

Here is what I'm looking at currently:

Have you tested 5Ghz to make sure you have adequate signal everywhere you need it? 2.4Ghz is crowded by has a much farther effective range.

If 5Ghz works in all of the locations you need, you want to use it for sure.

I have decided to cut the cord. Does anyone have Fubo TV?

I cut the cord today. DTV couldn’t come close to matching Hulu Live TV $45/month. Our DTV bill was going to be $99/month. Not worth it for the 15-20 channels we do watch.

We still have DTV until March 1st, then I’ll make the switch to Hulu.

I sure hope Reddit shows a lot of the Royals games (in KC broadcast) or I’m going to have to go back to DTV.

Dunit look at mlb tv it a good deal i was smart enough to get a deal where i could get just the royals games for 21 dollar last year and pay 21 dollars this year. So my days off work and west coast night game swing will be me watching the royals.

reddit.com/r/mlbstreams will have all your games. I watched most every Braves game last season with no issues.

I cant get mlbtv. We are considered in their region so its blacked out. Makes no sense.

Yes, 5Ghz works fine everywhere in my house. My 3 Rokus are working well. Also, I realize now that I don't need that Amazon Firestick that I just bought last November or December. I have a 4th TV (spare room/man room/music room) but I can get all the apps I need on my Xbox One that is connected to that tv.

One other thing that I found and just started a trial on yesterday is Philo tv. It is $16/mo. and gives me those other channels such as Food Network, ID, Science, AXS, and several others.

So right now I'm just rolling with Youtube tv and Philo tv. That's $56 total plus tax. Not bad. I get pretty much all of the channels I wanted except NFL Network. But I can still catch all the Chiefs games that are on that so I'm fine with that.

I looked at that one. It seems that service is geared toward sports programming, amongst other things. The problem is that they charge an additional $10/mo. for DVR. Only 2 devices are allowed to stream at the same time unless you add the Family Share for $6/mo, then you can do 3 at a time.

Edit: It seems that you get 30 hours cloud DVR with any basic package. You have to pay $10/mo. for 500 hours cloud DVR.

Antenna, Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon prime are all I really need. Tubi has had a few decent surprises for a free service.

Understand that. Only problem with antenna for us is that there will be no DVR for locals. We watch a few shows on the major networks but not always able to watch at broadcast time.

Technically, you could get a device like HDHomerun, which connects to the antenna and provides a network-based DVR for over the air programming like that. It's not anywhere close to being as easy and intuitive as YoutubeTV makes it. But it works.

TiVo makes an antenna friendly DVR. That's what we use and love it.
