I would not pay for it but Verizon is paying for the first year of it so I had nothing to lose by trying it out

I think these new platforms can only grow so large because Netflix has already gotten a huge headstart building out its platform and brand across the globe.



No one is forcing you to get every single one. I have Sling TV with cloud DVR, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon (which kind of doesn't count because that's included with your Prime membership, and is just a small taste of all the benefits you get for being one), and Disney+. My overall bill is a million times cheaper than cable. I also have an AirTV box that gets OTA channels and can broadcast them to all TVS in the house, using one antenna. AirTV integrates with Sling, so the OTA channels get meshed into their guide. I also hooked up an external hard drive to the AirTV box so I can record my shows that air on OTA channels.


So between Sling and AirTV, I get 85 channels. Sling is costing me $25/mo, plus an additional $5 for their cloud DVR service. Cable loses this battle.

Our phones are with Verizon and so we have a year of Disney+ free, and I'm enjoying it. About halfway through The Mandalorian which is excellent.

My only gripe is that although we have an LG Smart TV, it's a 2015 model which has WebOS 2 ...and Disney+ is only supported on LG tvs that have WebOS 3 or higher. So the only way we can watch Disney+ content is on the computer which is a much smaller screen. A real shame when watching anything Star Wars, lol. The same tv works with Netflix just fine and so I have no clue why Disney/LG decided not to support a not-that-old smart tv via a workable app. Apparently it's "a firmware thing" because I even tried back-dooring it via the tv's web browser and got an error message saying I was trying to access the service with an unsupported device.

If anyone has figured out how to access Disney+ on a WebOS 2 tv, I'm all ears LOL
