    Other options for cable TV?

    I had Directv (loved it) and switched to Spectrum (hated it).
    I canít go back to Directv because A) the price and 2) Iíve heard they eliminated a lot of channels like ABC/CBS (no Bills games).

    Does anyone know of any other good options?
    Iíve been told to switch to YouTube TV for $49.99 per month.
    Draft a franchise QB that X-Era would be proud to put in his user name for the next 13 years.

    I ditched DirecTV and signed on with Hulu.

    No NFL Network, but I may hook up with one of the Sling packages that offers it and still will be paying less than half of what I was with the dish.

    The first two preseason games were fine, but for some reason last night I didn't have CBS for the 30 minutes leading up to the game, it kicked in for the game itself, but then dropped again just before the two-minute warning. Need to figure out what's going on with that. I think I'm going to get an antenna to hook up to one of the TV's for local channels just to assure I don't get dropped at the end of a game again.

    My antenna picks up CBS so I should get all the Bills games. It did for all the preseason games so far.

    I wish there was an option of only picking up the channels you like.

    Playstation Vue's Core package is $55.00 per month and provides about 70 channels. We got our local channels back and NFLN back. The sports package is another $10 per month but gives NFL redzone.

    There have been rumors that Sony is going to eliminate Vue, I hope not, its a decent deal.

    People are dumping DTV and all other Att TV in droves.

    They're only interested in controlling as much content as they can.

    It was great decision to allow them to merge with Time Warner so they could become a content monopoly.

    I refuse to pay for NFL football. My father predicted in 1975 that the owners would find a way to get all the at-home fans to pay them as we listened to Van Miller with the TV sound turned down. Boy was he right. My cable gives me 70+ channels, NFLN, movie channels, sports and robust on-demand programming for $19.99/month.

    Isn't this paying for NFL football also?
