    This is where Spectrum uses the "package" leverage
    YouTube Tv has the SEC channel in their lineup. MG

    YouTube TV includes the SEC Network and ACC Network. For streaming services, YouTube TV and Hulu Live can't be beat from a sports perspective.

    You might be interested that CNET just did a new review comparing SLing with YouTube TV. Here is the matrix and the link to the full article is below. I am one week in and I am very impressed. True 1080 performance (Spectrum is 720 HD for their cable boxes) and really enjoying having my DVR back and included. MG

    Trying out Youtube TV, seems ok so far. I’ve got a smart TV in the den, but for my other 2 TVs, will need to get something else to watch it with. What are others using - chrome cast- Roku???? What’s the best alternative for a non- smart tv. ?

    Tired of the new ATT directv. I’ve been a customer for 18 years , they used to work with you when a promo ended to lower your bill, but now they won’t budge.

    I've only ever used Roku, and it's worked great. We got ours free when we got our Sling TV subscription. The Roku outlasted Sling TV by years.

    All you need is Roku, plug it into HDMI on your older TV
    The Ultra model has better remote and hardware performance.

    I cut the cord so to speak this week after receiving terrible customer service from Verizon; riding ourselves of a bill for roughly $180 per month.

    I signed up for internet service through Comcast which costs $54 per month plus fees. So I got a Firestick and installed Smart IPTV on it https://www.firesticktricks.com/smart-iptv.html . Honestly, it was a very smart and cost effective decision

    Iíve been with Hulu for 6-9 months and like it. Their recent update with regard to the channel guide isnít as good as it could be, but Iím sure itís a work in progress. I was just notified that next month the bill is going up $10 to $55.

    I switched from Sling to Youtube TV and have been pleased. I switched mainly for the Local channels.

    I started this thread and since then.
    Told Spectrum to stick their over priced TV up their ass and I now have just their high priced internet at the moment.
    I picked up YouTube TV for $49 and still have my Netflix
    Impressed w/ YouTubeTV
    Just about have exactly what I had paying Spectrum $180/mo.
    Now I just need to find internet less than $75 a month......I think that is what these crooks are charging me.
    Haven't had time to explore the wireless providers

    Spectrum has been throwing deals at me like an ex with midnight booty calls since I cut the cord. I’m spectrum internet, YouTube TV, and Netflix. I also have Amazon Prime Video but I consider it free since I would have prime anyway. I am at $130. But the same thing with spectrum was $200 including DVR AND I can take my YouTube tv with me anywhere I go. Win, win, win. MG
