Recommendations?

Sling, and a HD TV antenna to pick up local stations. Summary - the antenna won't work, and you'll either watch less TV or leave the home to do it

Nothing on the market just yet that I would place as the best streaming TV option. Maybe Roku?

I've had Sling for a year or so and an antenna, works great for the price. My antenna works great, $13 on amazon.

+1, I have slingtv for mostly espn and sometimes hgtv. Antenna for local news and football (fox and cbs). I also have Netflix for the kids. I haven't had cable for over 9 years, don't miss it.

Default Re: Which streaming TV service to replace cable?

leaning towards directv now, it seems to offer the most for the least amount of money and has all 4 major local network stations

our main tv doesn't have a tuner built in so no rabbit ears for locals and we don't want to buy an adapter

I had DirectTV until it got expensive after the initial 12 month period. Make sure you know when their special offer expires, because that's when they bend you over
