Such as today WBTV and WSOC-TV had the most comprehensive coverage of the Carolina Panthers/Jerry Richardson story, and WSB had detailed coverage of the shutdown at the Atlanta airport. Locally I normally watch WYFF for news, and sometimes WSPA.
Yes, that's what I meant to say You can watch any news which is nice too. You can watch it anytime as well.

My TV is in the living room. Who's isn't? I don't sit out there but it has one of those "mouse pad" antenna's attached to it. It's a smart tv so it gets youtube, netflix, hulu, etc. I pay for hulu to watch current TV shows and netflix and amazon prime for movies, but I prefer to sit on my bed watching on my laptop. So much for the tv! It's really there for the grandkids and for my son's PS4.

This is all great, but you still need an internet provider, so I assume most of you still haven't truly 'cut the cable'. We have internet only through Spectrum, and it was a good deal until they jacked up the rate after a year. I nearly cut the cable then. We tried Hulu, but it kept hanging up, and it got too frustrating. Are any of the other ones better?

Most people already had an internet connection in their home long before these streaming services came along. Its pretty much a necessity these days, so no... I guess technically you can say we haven't "cut the cord" completely. However, if you can add TV to it through the use of these streaming services - WHILE saving money at the same time then semantics aside, it's still a win-win situation.

Can you explain what you mean when you say it kept hanging up? Do you mean it's lagging? My dh is the one who watches TV and he prefers Sling over all the other ones. And yes, most people already have internet so as mentioned, it's a big savings and win-win situation.

If I cut "that" cord, I won't have an income. Internet is more important than cable TV which is what most are referring to when they say they cut the cord!

We tried to watch 'Designated Survivor' on Hulu. It would make it to the first commercial, then quit. We tried it over and over, and eventually got that episode to play. On the very next episode, it did the same thing, at the same point! Other shows streamed OK, so it was something peculiar to that show. Later, it started freezing on other shows, and then it had to be rebooted periodically as if our TV hadn't been set up. Too frustrating for older, non-technical folks like us.

If you contact hulu they are likely to give you a credit and might even look in to your problem.

We have ATT DSL which is pretty slow but we use Netflix, Hulu and Amazon prime on multiple TVs at once and have very few problems. We also have a cheap antenna for live sports.
