    It's my fault, I reverted this and will clarify with the mod team.

    not a problem I used symbols @#%$ instead of a slang term for excrement the mods are probably correct per the written rules though, I think you know I do a fair job of coloring inside the lines :)

    I do as well, so no worries! Gotta have some flavor! ; )

    I wanna make sure it's clear WhattaGator was simply following our vague rules which will be clarified more succinctly. So, in a sense, @gatorjjh had the honor of causing a temporary rift in the GC fabric of space and time!

    I think we should keep a close watch on @gatorjjh just to be safe. ;)

    They called me (and worse) that when we occupied Tigert Hall in the 60's

    I was most definitely a troublemaker in Tolbert Hall. SMH

    Love this thread, @WhattaGator - We've done Directv for the number of years before being "priced out." Current cable is a vastly inferior product. Time to get w the times and package a modern setup.

    Yeah, same with me. It's crazy I'm paying significantly less for the same channels, but no dish or boxes. And if it storms I keep my signal. They are pricing themselves out lol

    Netflix and Hulu here with HBO through Apple. Handmaid’s Tale made us get Hulu. GOT suckered into HBO. I also spend a decent amount on iTunes for newly released movies I didn’t have time to see at theater. I typically wait for the $19.99 to drop to $14.99/$12.99. With kids sharing it’s less than a rental long run if it’s good. Occasionally I’ll bargain hunt for specials $4/$5. Seen some good movies for $0.99 rentals too. Good era for entertainment.

    Telling you man, get some friends together and get a Ultraviolet account. Then sync your libraries together. It doesn't work with iTunes but it does with VUDU, Movies Anywhere, Fandango Now, and some I'm forgetting. It's 100% legit. Also you pay to upload your old dvds and convert them to HDR. A few studios don't allow Ultraviolet to access their movies, like Disney so you can buy them but it won't show up in your friends library, but that's what Google family is for.

    Hulu, Netflix and Amazon Prime. More often than not I find something worth watching on one of them. Occasionally we'll rent a movie but it's rare nowadays.

  15. I have Sling TV, Netflix, Hulu, and Vudu. I just found out that Hulu added live TV, so I will test it and possibly get rid of Sling.

    Does anyone have experience with Hulu and live TV, especially SEC Network?

    I trialed Hulu Live for the NCAA tourney so I could catch the Gators. It worked well. It's a good deal more expensive than Sling though... Sling is a way better value for keeping up with the Gators if that's your sole intent.

    Its probably just a FireTV or Fire Stick with a custom Kodi build side-loaded so it has all the pirated locations already added in.

    Just want to keep this going. What are you all doing to reduce cable costs?

    I called DirecTV to cancel and they cut my bill from $130 to $60 and gave me 6 months HBO without having to sign a contract

    Roku, one time purchase (I forgot it was so long ago, I think it was around $30) it has a bunch of free channels so you get tons of TV shows and movies. I do HULU basic $7.99/month, but from what I'm hearing, the live TV might be a good upgrade at $39.99/month. I have amazon prime, but I use that primarily to save shipping costs so the video is kind of a bonus. I've tried Sling, Netflix and a couple others on the free trials but have yet to settle in. It seems like the options keep getting better all the time, and those teaser intro rates and BS 2 year contracts are going the way of the dinosaur.
