Re: YouTube to offer a Cord Cutter TV service in 2017

This is great news! More the merrier. Unlike Dish, Direct, or Cable, we have many more choices. I am hoping the diginet channels start streaming, like METV, Antenna TV, Get TV, and so on. With the Roku and other devices, things can just only get better. We have so many choices with the Roku now. I ...

Re: 2016 Olympics on Roku in USA?

Is there going to be any way to watch the 2016 Olympics on Roku in the US for those of us without a cable or satellite subscription? Either a reliable free way, or a paid app? It looks like NBC's regular and sports apps both require a cable or satellite subscription to access live content. It will ...

Re: I thought I was in favor of opening cable boxes until

Till I read the WSJ op-ed from Roku's CEO. And I feel he makes a great point. The government is running to fix a problem, that the free market is already fixing in good fashion. And the proposed changes to open Cable boxes will make Google rich, but may not save consumers a dime. Plus what is not s...

Re: Viacom Stations Are Coming To Sling TV

I wish History, Discovery, HGTV, DIY, etc would get together for an OTT solution. I'd pay for it. If we are going to wish, I wish that the ESPN family of networks would offer a standalone subscription service for, say $12-$15/month or, alternatively, that there would be a "roll-your-own" ...

Re: Sling TV's new multiple streaming option

The addition of Fox Sports, including the regional sports networks, first on Vue and now on Sling, will open the door for a lot of potential cord cutters, who wouldn't consider it because they couldn't watch their favorite in-market teams. This is huge. I expect this will accelerate cord cutting ove...

Re: MLB.TV 2016 for Roku Now Available - Premium for $109.99

Then my question is.....why are fans paying for MLB.TV and/or why is there even an app like MLB.TV ? Maybe someday there will be a streaming app for fans. I know they want to fill the stands but tickets are out of reach and away games too, that is unreal. Not everybody lives in the market their fav...

Re: BBC News? Al Jazeera English?

You could try Channel Pear. Your success may vary. Sometimes those channels are there and sometimes they are not. Because Channel Pear enables a lot of piracy. They are there until the piracy is identified and then they are not until a new site is put up. I'm sure Channel Pear has substantial nonin...
