    Also, those of you with Directv - are you concerned at all about the situation with them dropping CBS? Do you think that be resolved in the next month?
    Huh? How do you drop one of the big 3?

    I guess folks could use antennas. I don’t have cable and use over air and honestly. The HD on antenna is better than satellite.

    It is when you live relatively close to the broadcast towers and can get a good signal. I live relatively close but my house is near big/tall trees and when the trees are full and wind blows, the over-the-air broadcast signal gets dicey.

    Maybe CBS has its own streaming app to get it that way.

    I canceled Directv June 2018 and started streaming with Directv Now at half the cost. Good service, but I'm about to dump it and try Sling since they raised the price $15 in just over a year. Anyway, I'm not sure if they offer any Sunday Ticket options with Directv Now, but if they do you might want to check it out. The streaming quality is just as good as the dish and better yet, doesn't go out when it rains.

    I'm almost 60 miles away from the KDKA tower and receive a perfect HD signal. Since I dumped Directv and went with their streaming service I bought a Tivo and use it to record my locals. And like Ghost, my kids usually have sporting events on Sundays so I'm always the guy avoiding all humans and social media until I can get home to watch.

    You know, I tried with my PS4 when I used to have one and I didn’t enjoy it. Also found it unreliable mostly because the format wasn’t compatible with the video program for the web site.

    Also, there almost always is at least 1 pop up you have to close and it’s just much easier to use with an actual computer.

    Normally it is us Canadians that get ripped off on everything but your guys are getting gouged for the NFL Sunday Ticket. I have the DAZN App here which is only $120 Canadian for the year and the NFL Sunday Ticket is included in the price as are NFL Redzone, NFL Network, MLB Network and a bunch of other stuff that I don't watch. Just a thought I have this on the Roku and I have used it in the past to subscribe to Hulu and American Netflix. I actually had to setup my Roku as an American account, use a trick to make my credit card appear as an American one and setup my router to appear as if my address was in the USA. It worked flawlessly. Maybe you guys can figure out how to do this in the USA so that you're only paying about $95 American per year instead of the ridiculous high price you're paying now.

    That's interesting. If that app is available here rpmpit might just be able to use something like a roku or amazon fire tv box, put a vpn on it and switch the location to somewhere in Canada.

    Interesting. It doesn’t look stable when reading the reviews.

    I just compare my sports bar cost to the Ticket and I always come out ahead when you factor in overpriced drinks and food

    Directv has exclusive rights on Sunday Ticket. I have Fios now and knew going in that I'd have to go back to Directv if I wanted the Ticket. But like I said, they were no-shows on 4 service calls in a row so I cancelled. Was hoping they'd let me have the Directv Now just for Ticket but haven't called yet. Maybe if they REALLy want me back as a customer they'll bend their rules??

    And Az, thank you for all your help and guidance. I was thinking the PS4 would be less risky to use vs. a computer in regards to malware, viruses, etc. But I can grab an older laptop from work that no one uses anymore to use exclusively for streaming. Week 1 is a national game vs. Pats. I'll try to stream other games earlier in the day and see how it goes. If there's no issues, I'm golden. If there are, I'll call Directv and see what they can offer me.

    I started using reddit streams last year at the advice from chat room members and had a few that locked up but found another one fairly easily. Yes there’s e lag but better than not watching at all so I’ll take it.
