Eventually Amazon will win, they just need to figure out how to best sell sports streaming.

I've completely cut, Have a FireStick with Kodi/Covenant, and have Netflix and Amazon. Full disclosure though, I have my dad's HBO credentials and my brother's Sling login, so I still get most channels. And I get all networks through my TV's built in antenna.

You're like a "vegetarian" that still eats chicken, turkey, and fish.

Wifi via the HOA. So yeah, paying someone I guess. This is the only downfall. The speed is fine, but the security isn't. So I have to have a program on my laptop that essentially creates a secure network from the free wifi.

A few weeks into my Roku tv, and I'm still supremely happy with the setup. I think they've got a lock on the best price:performance for cord cutting for the foreseeable future.

Yeah, the picture quality is much better OTA. Not as compressed.

Thanks, there was an electric wire behind the drywall where I hung it. Moved the antenna and it looks better now.
