golf channel?


yeah, golf channel is in their 2nd tier package

bammer, look into PS Vue or Sling. you can get a good amount of sports channels for $40-45/month, and just buy a cheap Roku for each tv

It takes a special kind of person to watch Spring Training baseball on TV.

if you go this route, do the math if you can get a real number from Comcast. typically, if you ditch their bundle and have internet-only, they'll jack the price of internet. add that with your Vue/Sling, plus cable rental box, and see if you come out on top. you're typically still saving a good amount of money.

Thank you for all the tips.

One more angle on this: Is there any kind of product that would let me plug an audio/video out device into the main TV, and it wirelessly transmits the signal to another device plugged in to the audio/video in on the patio TV?

Bammer, does Comcast offer a wireless cable box? I know the satellite services do. You could move the one from the second TV pretty easily if you needed to.

He's not even a millennial (at least, I don't think so)!

Depending on the channel, you could "cast" from a streaming app on your phone to the TV. I am not sure many TVs have "outs" that would support this. A sling box might also work.

i think it's doable with things like this...

https://www.amazon.com/J-Tech-Digital-Wireless-Supporting-Transmission/dp/B071VCK1FG/

https://techforluddites.com/wireless-cable-tv/

The caveat being that you have to watch the same channel on both tvs at the same time. I don't know if you have to have both tvs powered on at the same time, though.
