TV EXPERT OUT THERE?

I pay Charter/Spectrum about $165 per month for tv, internet and phone, with tv being the biggest cost. Anyone have a better solution for tv? I want to receive the major networks, the oldies local stations, the ESPN’s, Fox Sports, Golf Channel at a minimum.

I would probably stay with Charter/Spectrum for internet and phone unless there is a better alternative.

Thanks for the help.

    TV with a tuner or an HD antenna will cover a lot of your needs. Then Hulu at $45/month covers everything else. Only pay months you want. I get in the fall for football and basic outside of that.

    Phone? Why do you even need a landline/voip? cell phone doesn't cover what you need?

    then just use them for internet. probably $65-70/month for 100mbps or better?

    Do you actually need thebhouse phone this dayband age with cell phones? (Something my younger coworkers enlightened me on)

    As for TV. Youtube TV is $40 a month and covers the basics you want. If yiu have a Playstation then Playstation Vue is a great deal. Both have live stream and DVR.

    Got rid of Comcast last year.  Went with AT&T fiber internet, Hulu Live, and Netflix.  Never looked back.  If you have Amazon Prime, you get all their programming by default as well.

    I cut the cord a year ago. My setup begins with a Roku streaming stick--$50 at Sam's Club. Roku has a lot of free TV content. No football though. YouTube TV for $40/mo has SEC Network, and all the sports channels I need to see every Georgia game. Major broadcast networks and my local channels included. For me, that's all I need.

    My wife, however, watches other stuff. So we added Netflix streaming service for approx $20/mo. I have a membership with Amazon Prime because I shop there so much. AmazonPrime offers a video and music service as well, with a large amount of free content and stuff you can rent.

    The beauty is I can pick and choose for my needs. There are other TV streaming services like Sling, DirectTV, and Hulu. I've found YouTube TV to be perfect. I can even set it to DVR our games and that is free too. It is not offered in every market, however.

    Thank you all. Now I have some choices to make.

    I have sling and have the blue account when football isn’t on. Get food network hgtv bunch of movie channels local news and shows on bravo and E for the wife and that’s 30 a month. I upgrade the account once football starts and it’s just a extra 25 for a few months. I keep the cbs app on apple and that’s 6 dollars a month. 

    Great thing about cutting the cord is no contract pay for what you want when you want.
