I've been trying out Sling TV. Both packages plus premium channels comes out to about $90 (with 50 hours of recordable dvr). Just need to get use to it a bit. Add an antenna and you should be good as well.

I think I should just write down everything I watch during a week or two and see what channels I'm actually using and go from there.

God Comcast is good at talking you into keeping their services...

Update...

Comcast dude showed up today to install the home automation crap in the house. Found out it *must* be installed and active at all times, not like the phone service at all - like I was initially told by the customer service lady.

He furthermore tells me I have access to gigabit internet service right now.... which is pretty damn awesome because the Xfinity portal shows that I can only get 150mbps.

So I cancelled the home automation install today and therefore, also the $195/mo deal for all cable programming.

Called Comcast. Tell them I want to go to gigabit internet service only, possibly retain my phone service to keep my "home #" that I've had for 12 years. The internet service is $139.99/mo +$11/mo for the mandatory equipment rental +tax title license costs.

Ask what the cost is for 150mbps service and phone services only, but then the lady offers me 150mbps internet, all my same HD cable programming (less HBO), and I keep my phone service... cost is $165/mo! This isn't a bad price at all. I agreed, and they reset my services which gave me the internet speed test results above.

I've also signed up for YoutubeTV, a Roku and a Firestick to test them all out. I have a feeling I'll eventually get tired of all of it, find which e-TV service suits me and then reduce service all the way to internet only.

So far, YTTV is pretty decent. Quality is good. No buffering. Audio is clear and doesn't seem to be using lower quality signals. The only thing I can say is that frame rates seem a bit slow or laggy when you first tune a channel in, sort of like how Netflix sends a low quality signal at first, then improves to full quality within a minute or two... if that makes sense.

So, good news is... I shaved nearly $100 off my Comcast bill. That feels good.

DIrecttv now is running a deal on their streaming service for $10/month for the first 3 months with a cancel anytime contract. I may suspend PlayStation Vue for a couple months and try this service to see if I like it better.

Bought a fire stick. As much as I like the idea, without an Xfinity streaming app, it seems pretty useless. The Roku is getting used way more. I think I'm going to return the FS and go Roku on all but my main TV.

I just got an Apple TV 4k to start trying this stuff out too so I can eventually tell Comcast to pound sand.

Likely going to go with Playstation Vue.

I haven't tried Vue yet but it seems to be available on most platforms. What does it cost?

Between $40 and $75 depending on your channel selections.....

I will likely end up in the middle of the road, need Discovery, DIY Network, and HGTV for a bunch of the shows I watch on there.

Just cancelled my free YouTubeTV subscription and it allowed me to continue viewing through the free week of service.

Not that it didn't work, but no need for it if I'm going to keep Comcrap cable service for awhile.

Lol Jesus. $70/mo? Might as well just keep Comcrap cable! $89/mo for 150mbps plus $70 plus all the taxes and crap... AND you'll hit your data cap with Comcrap if you're streaming high quality daily....

It's all fixed. Can't escape playing someone!

I'm sure I'll end up in the same boat as you...

"Hey, Ive been a customer of yours for over a decade but am cancelling my service because it's stupid expensive now..."

"Well sir, how about we give you all this stuff and drop the price in half!"

Why the fuck do you make us go through all these damn hoops and shit to keep a low price, just let us keep our low rate and you'll have less people talking ahit about your product non-stop you idiots.
