As I posted in the good morning thread a couple days ago, I cut the cord after 35 years with Spectrum and their predecessors. I returned all the provider equipment and told them I had enough. The powers to be have no problem extending huge discounts to new customers, but refuse to lower the cost to those who have been paying for their outrageous bonuses for years. The representative I dealt with told me that if I come back in 31 days, I would qualify for new customer rates. Well we’ll see about that.
So in the meantime, I signed up for Sling TV. I subscribed to the Orange and Blue packages, which has the bulk of the cable programming that I watch. For an additional $5 each, we added the Lifestyle package, Comedy package and Cloud DVR package. The grand total is $55 plus taxes, which is a $35 savings compared to Spectrum. However we qualified for a 30 day free trial. Yeah Live TV Streaming Services - Online | Sling TV
I have a very stable WIFI network, and the quality has been very good so far. It will take a little getting used to streaming television, but I have yet to experience any buffering. I will in another post, list and explain the different pieces of equipment involved. As of now, I give it thumbs up.
