OT: Raining for days ... so I joined the "cable cutter" ranks ...
Been raining for days, and raining off and on for months.
Don't want to drive the SL's or work on them ... and bored, so I decide to save some
money by cutting the Cable TV cord. Monthly cost had gotten to $200
per month and a lot of the channels I surf thru I can't view - "Call to Upgrade".
Crap. Paying $200/month and a lot of non-premium channels are not
viewable!! Come on.
So, I took some equipment to the cable company (Spectrum) and dropped
kick my two DVRs, TV subscription, and Phone -- keeping just my
100mbps Internet at $66.00 that I started using to "stream" video content.
I have to pay $66.00 but Spectrum advertises the same service for $44.95 with free WiFi.
That sorta erks me that that price is for new customers only.
Guys, there is a proverbial "shit load" of video content out there ... a lot for free.
I already had a Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime subscription, so I added Sling Blue for $25. I've installed a Digital Antenna picking up 22 stations over the air. I found the Pluto app to be great, along with Popcorn and My Retro Flix. There are about 10-15 other apps having a lot of interesting content.
The wife and I are in information overload on what to view.
So, do you "stream"?
Any interesting apps you like? Legal ones that is :-)
Your thoughts on the legality of streaming? I see where Viacom has purchased Pluto - they must see something about the future of TV.
