Rereading my response, I realize it seems a bit flip. I really don't mean it to. I was a long time Dish Network satellite subscriber before cutting the cord this spring.
I'm not a big sports fanatic, but I do miss baseball and what little horse racing was on ESPN. I also miss TVG and HRTV for horse racing coverage. It was hard to adjust to losing CNN news and HBO and Showtime.
There is definitely some sacrifice involved with cutting the cord. I now get my news fix through Al Jazeera, BBC, PBS and what I can find of the others on the Roku box. For baseball, I listen to the radio and use MLBTV's free game of the day, plus the Fox Network broadcast on Saturday afternoon, If you can get OTA, their is an astounding amount of material out there for free on digital TV these days.
We have had to make some adjustments. The redeeming feature is that I now have over $90.00 a month in my pocket that I didn't have before I did away with satellite and I watch a good bit of what I want on demand.. That is serious money to me and on the whole, I am every bit as entertained as I ever was before, perhaps more so.
Please attempt to maintain a thin veneer of civility.
