    Good article on the switch from Cable to broadband and how the providers will be handling. Hope this link works as it comes from Investor's Business Daily.

    What does it mean to get put on suspension?

    Basically suspends your service, but you keep equipment and stay at the same place in the contract.

    Of course, dude. That's how I switched to Uverse from TWC in the first place last year. I'm just playing the game. After having Uverse for a year, while I like it, there's really not an appreciable difference between it and TWC, especially with TWC upgrading its HD-DVR box, so I'm totally fine switching back if Uverse won't play ball.

    Showtime had announced they are launching their own streaming service (similar to HBO Now) in July for $10.99/month on Apple TV and Roku devices. Yesterday, they announced that Hulu subscribers can add the Showtime streaming service for an additional $8.99/month. The Showtime content will be accessed from within the Hulu app which will put them on many other devices (Android, iOS, gaming consoles, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, smart TVs, Blu-ray/DVD players, etc.). The Showtime content offered by Hulu won't have commercials or ads and will also feature the east and west coast live feeds. Very interesting.

    Assuming I'm going to be paying for internet, what is the cheapest way to watch sports, including the local pro teams?

    digital antenna will give you the networks in hd for local NFL

    sling for 20 a month gives you espn and espn2 in hd and TNT for thursday night NBA primetime games, along with a handful of other cable channels.. but it is also ridiculously easy to use a friend or family watchespn login for free

    nightly local home NBA team coverage could be tough depending on your team's broadcast deal... and even league pass blacks out local team games based on your internet connection

    Just re-activated Sling TV for football season. Paid the extra $5 for the sports package that includes SEC Network, ESPNU, and ESPN Goalline (along with ESPN Buzzer Beater for basketball season). Going to see how well it works to follow football this way

    Sling TV folks: Can you watch different shows from the same account in different parts of the house at the same time?
    Assuming they're streaming from different devices and you have Rokus or whatever on each TV.

    I believe you can only use one device per account. Check out the FAQs on their website.

    Probably dropping cable myself with TWC's switch to all-digital Oct 27th. They'll give you decoder boxes free until February 2017, but then it's $2.75 each/mo. Gonna just go antenna + sling.

    Is there anyone here in the triad on an antenna? I lost my WGHP FOX8 signal during the Panthers game, not sure if its my setup or if it's something with the station itself. I've got a rooftop antenna pointed towards High Point, all the other stations are coming in just fine.

    Interesting. Must be something with the station, then. I put in a query on their website about it, maybe they'll respond.

    You'd think they'd make an announcement on their website, or at least their Twitter or Facebook page, rather than leave a bunch of their customers high and dry during the Panthers quest for 9-0.

    Got a prompt response from one of their engineers: "We are having some transmitter issues and is operating on our backup low power transmitter. Our engineering team is currently working on getting the main transmitter back on line as soon as possible." That'll do it
