  • Dennis, where is the link here to the Sling DVR writeup?

    And I'm soooo sick of the badmouthing of some of these articles on cord cutting...they MUST get kickbacks from the cable / sat industry. Anyone who considers cutting most likely has internet or they probably would not have heard of it, so in the calc of total costs I don't think ISP cost should be part of the equation. So we are happy with our (less internet) $49 per month DIrecTV Now, Hulu, CBS A-A, and 17 OTA channels. Our last sat bill before we moved a year ago was $130 so I cannot see the logic in the trashing of all this.

  • We recently re-upped with Verizon FiOS for "triple play" (another marketing term you and Joel need to mock). I built a big spreadsheet for evaluating the cost of cord cutting. Even the most expensive option I considered (with a Tivo OTA box) was cheaper than cable.

    But the decision was decided by the fact that the Hulu app on an Amazon Fire Stick TV kept crashing so my wife was not thrilled with the cord cutting idea. Plus Verizon made a decent offer after I let the agreement expire and called them every couple of weeks to get their latest price for triple play.

    Meanwhile, I'll be watching for all the new OTA and DVR devices and streaming services, mostly by subscribing to your podcast in iTunes.

    • It was a couple of months ago. My hypothesis is that the Fire Stick is under powered.

    • Was this a few weeks ago? We are big Hulu users in the house and were having issues a few weeks backs. They've cleared up since.
