    I used to have a lake place out in the woods between Melrose and Hawthorne as the weekend escape hatch and for Gator games. I had satellite internet with HughesNet® Gen5 | Call 844-737-2700 for High-speed Satellite Internet and it worked very well as I could still get some work done, check emails, send and receive files, etc. I wonder now how that might work for TV for those living in the sticks.

    One of my favorite subjects. How do you reduce the cost of cable? Cut the cord, period! 4+ years for me, haven’t missed it at all. I like to watch shows when I want to, not on their schedule. I watch virtually no live tv because I hate all the mind numbing commercials. Plenty of really good streaming options now.

    Same here, except we had to get a small subscription to some live TV access for a majority cable cutting vote. My sister had to have her HDTV, and whatever channels do the true crime shows.

    Hulu has HGTV. Whatch it through a Roku device or Smart TV with the HGTV app and you get it all on demand.

    Yeah I'm a Roku guy from way back. Still have my 1 somewhere. Now as a house we have 2 Roku TVs, 2 sticks, a Roku 3, and a Roku 2 HD probably sitting in the closet with the Roku 1. I was leaning towards Hulu since I already had it, but I got out voted and we got DirectvNow instead.

    How do you like it? Pricing is better isn't it? Does it qualify for Sunday Ticket like the old sat version?

    At first I didn't love it service was decent but no DVR. About a week ago they did a complete UI overhaul and it's night and day. Plus on demand and DVR options. As far as Sunday ticket I couldn't tell you. This is a Saturday football and MLB house mainly.
