For those interested Sling TV has added more channels and more options in the last couple days. I have some good channels that I did not have a week ago, mainly FS2 and FXX.
Depending on the device and how complicated you want to get, you could subscribe to a VPN. Some of them are as cheap as $2/mo if you buy a year or two at a time.I use Pluto on rare occasions, no BBC2. I'm going to have to find a way to bypass their geo-blocking or just be patient and wait until the show I want to watch is on Netflix.
This is called cableYou know, I keep looking for solutions that fit what my family wants. So many packages offer an "almost" solution, and I'm not crazy about that - I'd rather not patch together some Frankenstein's monster of stuff just to get what I have now - an over-priced glop of channels - 90% of which I've never watched even once.
But what I'd like doesn't seem to either exist - or appear on the horizon.
What we would LIKE - is a package that offers the Big Four (yes, Fox belongs there too) - the CW - and the dozen or so networks we regularly watch: TNT, TBS, USA, SyFy, AMC, A&E, Food, ID, Science, History and Disney. And the news networks. Beyond those - well I could adjust to never seeing them. Even among my favorites among the rest, like BBC America - I could live without Doctor Who, even though he isn't on any streaming (anymore - used to be on Netflix).
But dammit - nobody carries the Big Four. Mostly because CBS won't participate at all, but because even ABC isn't on board with some of them. You're lucky if you find the CW on any. So I'm not seeing a solution that cuts my cable in half. (Half is the aim - I'm not making a big change just to save 20-30 bucks).
You do pay an added cost for thisAlso - the best features of current cable is - the offerings I get are fully accessible by every TV in the house without additional cost, and I can access recorded programming on at least three of them. And I can watch ANYTHING I record. Like, forever. Not just shows for the last few weeks. And all of them.
