    What do you guys recommend replacing it with? I have Netflix currently.My only concern is missing out on Hockey/ F1. Thanks for the advice

    Edit: DONE. Bill went from $260 a month to $40 a month ( I kept the internet) this seriously gave me a rush. Feels good man

    search for nhlstreams on reddit. there's gotta be sites that stream F1 as well.

    I haven't had cable in over 5yrs.

    I don't miss it either. Netflix, prime, youtube are enough.

    You can always stream stuff you can't get from other sites.

    Haven't had cable in over a decade. I set up an antenna and was able to get about 15 channels. Most happen to be channels I watch occasionally (news, some 'merican channels, a couple main network channels) so it works for me. The antenna cost me $80 at the time, and its paid it way back in full since then.

    Recently I got Netflix for some other stuff too

    The great thing about Netflix is how well is performs is low bandwidth areas.

    I cancelled my acount a few months ago, but we had a severe power outage after tornado hit my city a couple of weeks ago. I had no power for almost a week, but I did have a somewhat decent data signal on my phone. No other streaming site would work on it reliably except YouTube and Netflix, which I temporarily reactivated. I could barely use sherdog.

    I finally got to finish the Punisher by candlelight, fuxking epic lol

    Soon everyone will have to have Netflix, Hulu, that soon to come out Disney streaming service, and many others to have what the others don’t like when you had to have Showtime even if you had HBO, or Starz, or any other of them premium channels. It’s just an endless cycle.

    Sling TV might work for you. Give it a look.

    I got rid of cable last year and use Amazon/Netflix for movies and tv series, and use Hulu tv for live sports.

    F1 has an app with a paid subscription. Might also be able to get access with the ESPN+ subscription too.

    I got rid of dish like a year ago. I tried living on a combo of Netflix/Hulu/sling but I came crawling back to dish like a month ago. Couldn’t get by without nfl and golf

    Netflix, amazon, and YouTube is all I use. There’s enough content to keep me entertained. If there ever isn’t... I just know it’s time to get outside more.
