I pay $40 a month for Internet plus $13/month for Hulu, $8/month for Amazon Prime, and Netflix is free.
How is Netflix free?

Crap.... LOL - but it's what I find entertaining. TLC, Bravo, FYI - for example, Sister Wives (current season, I've seen all the old ones that are on Hulu, Married at First Sight (new season started last night and I missed it). It's new/currently running stuff on cable channels that I'm missing - I found a GREAT antenna at Walmart for $15 and I have Prime, Netflix, Hulu and I just got Kodi (on my Fire Stick) - but I can't find some shows I'm missing.

You can get live Bravo and TLC channels through Playstation Vue using your Fire TV stick for $29.99/month for their cheapest package. That comes with a cloud DVR. They have a 7 day free trial to check it out.

https://www.playstation.com/en-us/network/vue/

Getting PlayStation™Vue on Amazon Fire TV is easy. Once you’ve set up a PlayStation™Vue subscription - either online at www.psvue.com/plans or from a PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 3 console - download the application from the Amazon app store on your Fire TV device, and sign in using your PlayStation Network* account info. You’ll have instant access to your favorite content and PlayStation™Vue interface.
Don’t have a PlayStation™Vue subscription set up yet? Subscribe through your PlayStation®4 or PlayStation®3 system, or visit www.psvue.com/plans to set up a subscription online.

This may be my answer! Thank you for taking the time to help me. Would I see the shows "live" or repeat next day or so like Hulu? I'll look into it when I get home to my tv/Fire Stick.

Cord cutting news- DISH lost 321,000 subscribers, April-June qtr. Biggest loss ever reported.
Too many channels lost due to locals wanting more money for re-transmission rights and DISH won't pay.
Newsmax contract not renewed. NFL channel off air for over a month, another NFL wants more money dispute.

Live. The only Live streaming services out there at this time are SFN TV, Playstation VUE, and Sling TV.

Glad this got bumped, I was going to start my own thread.
I just cut the cord a month or so ago.

Previous Cable TV + Internet bill: $165
Current bill: Internet $70 + Netflix $9 + Hulu $8 + Amazon around $9 + HBO Now $16 = $112
=More content then I have time to watch.
Probably dump HBO after watching GoT and save even more...
