It would be nice if one of my three line amps didn't have a tweaked gain pot and I could get more than four stations in the bedroom, but I sleep more.

This puts the Trump/Waway issue into better perspective.

And feels a lot like the old model record companies operated under for a few decades.

Cable sucks. We make a car payment each month to them.

Ripped and routed my way down to $149 from $295/mo. I consider myself lucky, another guy I know had his cable rate jacked up $100 starting in January, my hit was only $35 (he is cutting the cord now too after I talked to him about it).

Got rid of all the Comcast stuff including the TV package except the Modem/Router. That is on my hit list.

Now
6 Roku Ultra boxes (pays back in 3 mos). These boxes are pretty awesome. Remote comes with JBL earbuds for private watching.
Comcast Internet $70/mo
YouTubeTV $50/mo
HBO $15/mo
Comcast Modem rental $14/mo

Better watching lineup than before to boot. And the YouTubeTV and HBO are month to month, cancel anytime.

We do the biz class version here. Had it since heck.. 2012 or so. 109 per month for 60 / 10 with no caps and no questions asked (compared to residential) when and if a truck needs rolled to clean up the signal. Been off of Directv for a few years now with Roku + Hulu running us around 67 for a decent spread of channels plus locals. Still coming out ahead as I remember it was time to tell Directv to pack sand after seeing 180.00 per month just for TV.
