Skip to comments.Alternatives to Cable? (OT)
Posted on 06/22/2011 10:32:28 PM PDT by MacMattico
Ok, So we've got Time Warner Cable, no pay channels, and Road Runner High speed Internet.
I'm sick of paying $140 a month!!!
What are some good alternatives people are using? We need high speed Internet for business purposes. As for the TV, we like Fox News, ESPN, local channels, Disney, Nickolodean, A&E, HG, History, Discover, and YES. (Yankees). Does any such system exist at a more reasonable price? That you can use a DVR or like devise?
I'm willing to entertain "just stream from a computer" or whatever it is as long as it's reasonably user friendly and the picture is clear. Otherwise, it's $140 bucks a month for me.
Getting YES network will be problematic.
THe drop down list on the following page is your ONLY legitimate options to stream YES directly to your PC:
but you have to check your blackout restrictions (based on your zip code):
Is it only two movies you can have sent to you a month or as many movies you want, two at a time?
Can you elaborate on your comment? I'm not going to search just so I can confirm what you claim to have seen.
Many FIOS customers (like me) are pleased with the service. I wish I paid less, but who doesn't?
I have Time Warner Cable ($167/month) and my sister has Verizon Fios. The picture quality on their television is a LOT better than the picture quality on my television.
I have FIOS - and [overall] its triple-play is superior to Comcast’s ...
Yeah, pretty much.
Not ‘claiming’... SAW/READ
Here’s a few of them
I haven’t found them to be TOO bad. The tech help is frickin useless and lies like a rug, and a lot of other customers have wicked latency/slowness issues with DSL, but mine’s pretty consistently good and my 7+ year old modem they supplied is humming right along, on its third power brick now.
But I still have to buy a analog converter box to hook up between the antenna and the set, right?
Yes, if your tv is not a recent model. I picked one up on EBay for $30.
Best Buy still stocks one.
