Many cutting the cord on cable/satellite

Ok, got a Roku for the home office, and so I am experimenting. The office is the test bed for future cord-cutting.

I looked at YouTube TV and Sling - neither one offers all of the networks. I could have sworn they did.
Am I wrong?
I guess it depends on which networks you want. I know Youtube TV has all of the local DC metro channels. I haven't seen any of the streaming TV services that have every single channel that I want. I guess you have to go with whichever one comes the closest.

You had me wondering for a second there. I had to double check. NBC4, FOX5, WJLA7, and WUSA9.

I have a very basic "must have" list that also includes The CW. All the Arrowverse shows and so on (except Supergirl - too PC).
That, plus USA, TNT, TBS, SyFy and BBC America, and that is almost every show we watch.
Now that we're used to streaming other channels, I could do without a lot of regular cable offers.
We just have too much stuff we want. Wife and I still have to START binging Outlander and Man in the High Castle for the latest season.

I'd REALLY like Baltimore channels, if only to get Ravens when they're not on locally.

Not sure about youtube, but Sling and Hulu Live do not, CBS is only through CBS all Access as far as I know.

ABC lets you watch their stuff a week after it airs on their app for free, so sling gets me NBC and Fox, and I pay CBS during college football season to watch college football.

I gave the Hulu Live free trial a go because it had ABC on it, but it did not have AMC and that was a deal breaker for me. I also did not like the interface anywhere near as much as the Sling interface.

As I mentioned earlier, YouTube TV has all of the DC metro channels live which covers ABC, CBS, and NBC.
