Anyone else make the switch to streaming only yet?
I would like to, but I haven't for the reasons Bobby stated.....
Seems like a lot of shuffling.
What’s wrong with cable? I like to get all of my stuff in one spot. Always there (occasionally have to replace the box but the place is right down the street,) lots of channels, convenient...
<$20 a month for IPTV is great, but I don't want to keep hunting for the next one every couple months when my current service gets shut down. As far as the more "legitimate" services, I have looked into PS Vue, DirecTV Now, Sling, etc. and they seem fine, but for the channels I want, it's barely cheaper than my cable package once you factor in the price for internet.
I have an "unlocked" Firestick (two of them actually) but don't use them much simply because I can't find a reliable source for anything. Kodi has always been a glitchy POS for me. TerrariumTV was great for movies and TV shows but now it's gone, and I've never found a decent live sports streaming option outside of an IPTV provider or a paid cable subscription app.
Cable just can't be beat when it comes to reliability and convenience. Sucks to say, but it's true. There are other options out there I want to look into (Hulu Live?) so I'm not giving up just yet. I have 6 TV's, two Firesticks, two Roku devices....so when the time comes and I finally decide to cut the cord, I'll already be good to go.
