Seeking current advice about how to watch professional sports live on TV--basketball, football, tennis in particular--that's cheaper than the "limited basic' cable plan we have with Comcast. We also have subscriptions to Amazon Video and Disney Plus for kids' shows. These three subscriptions combined make up a huge portion of our household bills and I'd love to reduce our costs. I could see us purchasing an indoor digital antenna for local channels which would give us a few events but that wouldn't meet our needs entirely, and it's possibly too windy where we live to use an outdoor antenna. Is a satellite dish still a 'thing'? Has anyone tried Sling, which now offers local networks in addition to streaming ESPN and other channels? Any other creative options out there for an avid sports fan?
Would love some basic education about what the current choices and tradeoffs are--either direct advice from BPN community or online sources. I feel like I'm in the dark ages and am daunted by the transition to something that may not meet our needs. Many thanks!Apr 2, 2023

My Comcast bill is $170 a month. This is a bundled package, but, I don't use the landline. We barely watch TV anymore.....we stream the occasional Amazon or Roku movie and my husband watches a couple of shows at night. Really, we are only using the internet service. This is in addition to the $204 a month charge for the cell phones. THIS IS SIMPLY OUTRAGEOUS. How do I lower this bill? What are my options to get rid of the $170 charge? Thank you for help.Aug 21, 2017

This is Dennis.We live on McKinley Ave in Berkeley just behind City Hall. We would like to get local TV stations such as channel 7 and channel 9 with a simple digital TV and antenna. Does anyone know if this is doable?: We would like to get rid of our Comcast.
Thanks--DennisApr 13, 2017
