Episode #3 Live Streaming Cable TV
This episode Dennis and Joel discuss two streaming services that deliver popular channels like ESPN, AMC, HGTV, FX, and more without requiring a traditional cable or satellite subscription. We get into what we like about them, where they lack, and what we hope the future holds for these services. We also discuss how to gauge whether on not it’s worth your while to pick up one of these services or go with another alternative.
