There is no TV in my home already some years, I rec it every one.I dont need pay to brainwash my mind and endure all that s* every day for hours on end, not to mention TV series and silly action films on flatulent subwoofer.In a moment of my life I realized I was addicted to TV, and those depressing images occupied a large part of my sleep time to being processed and removed from the conscious mind.After a few months without seeing the Big Brother trash I clearly noticed that my reasoning, concentration and awareness increased, and I do not even know what those sub-celebrities are doing, drinking or druging.Google for: stopping watching tv
I’ve been without cable/satellite tv for about 4 yrs now and don’t miss it. Been using an antenna for local channels and an Apple TV for Netflix/Amazon and every now and then hbo now. I just recently subscribed to sling tv and got the orange package for $20 a month. I like it so far as it has most if not all the channels I regularly watched when I was paying $125 a month for cable. I got ESPN,History,AMC,BBC America and others that come in 1080 on my Apple TV as well as my iPad and can cancel at any time, no contract which is nice.
Hi Buddy:Man, I have been an RCN customer for about 6 years, the second time around, the first time was with them back to 2006-7. Their triple bundle prices kept increasing to upwards of 200 back then, so I cut them off and dealt with Timewarner but I could not tolerate their lack of transparency when signals dropped for two weeks at the time and they never acknowledged that their network was at fault. I dropped them and switched back to RCN, which had gotten that much better since the last time I had them. Now the deal is that they do have a tendency of bumping their rates up after the promo offer but I did the audacity of calling them and telling them a sob story. I told them that people from FIOS and also from Spectrum (AKA:Time Warner) were sending me offer and also knocking my door continuously....so they have not failed to keep the internet rates steady. I am paying around $56 a month of 300 mbps and that is all I need. So, do call them again and see what they can give you. When the deal expires tell them the sob story. I have repeated my act 3-4 times and either they increase it by 1-2 dollars and they bump the speed. The competition is insane in NYC and I do see that you have had RCN previously....certain places and buildings are only wired for one cable company. So.... that is my story. Man, if you lived in my hood, you could have my signal repeated to you.
How do you get here? Coffee shop free internet?
I bought a new TV so I can hook it up to my iPhone 5s via and adapter. Best Buy included a month free of Sling TV, so I will try it. I will register soon and see how well it work on my iPhone 5s. Otherwise I think my new LG TV have built in Sling TV app and also for other services too, but I will have to get hone internet for that. I checked the Sling TV and funny thing is that Orange and Blue are both $25?
Rx8man no offense taken.So billing crap, unmotivated customer service reps and shifty package deals aside, how would you fix pay TV?People ask for alacart channel programming but to me that would cost most people more. At best savings would be minimal because the channels most would want go for like sports will get $5 a month each and even lesser channels are $2 a pop. OTA service is awesome but lacks replay/time slip and other DVR or streaming like functions. Most DVR devices that you can use with OTA have fees too for channel guides and such.So what I would like to see us do here is a community based approach to finding better options and products to support and try not to take a steaming crap all over suggested options. Discuss.
For OTA, for those interested (don't own it as I don't watch much TV) - there's this - https://www.channelmaster.com/Antenna_DVR_s/336.htm
