Default F ATT/DirecTV

I have had DirecTV for many years and been happy. But, now they have decided to save a few dollars and dropped NBC (15) and CBS (5). Since hurricane/tropical storm season will be here in about 48 hours and DirecTV is worthless without local weather. Iím switching to Cox Cable Contour service.

Has anyone else been impacted?

I ditched cable last week for the second time. Internet only now. My son lets me log in on his xfinity account so I downloaded a bunch of channels to my television. So that and my antenna is working fine so far. With my antenna I can get NBC and CBS so no impact here.

Cable companies blow. Throw cell phone providers in there too. When I lived in Chicago I had U S Cellular. They decide to pull out of Chicago and cancel everyone’s contract. You try and cancel your contract and see how that goes.

Man I went off the rails here,sorry.

Att-Direct sucks they overdrafted my account and claimed I changed plans
Had to argue but got my money back and closed that account as I only used it to pay them.
Netflix plus the antenna I put up picks up 22 channels. A whole lot cheaper now without Direct

I want to look into some of these internet TV services. I have not clue about some of these new services. Live in Baker and don't have access to cox, so we have Direct TV. Our internet provider is century link.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I have the same problem, but will probably just get an over the air antenna and deal with it. If its a big enough hurricane that I'm that worried about, the satellite signal will probably be the first thing to go anyway.

I cut Cox Cable and never looked back. I have an antenna and Netflix that gives me news and all the entertainment that I have time to watch. Ask Yellow River Cat what kind of antenna he uses to get 22 channels. He is doing better than me. I get all the major networks and public television.

We just have antenna also. Great and free. I am thinking about dumping Netflix since there is rarely anything to watch. Most of the made by netflix movies have gone lefty liberal - let me teach you a lesson crap.

The cable companies have priced themselves out of the market.

We dropped Mediacom five or so years ago - internet only now. We use STIRR for local news, Pluto TV, and Netflix. Also have an antenna if needed.

If/when 5G goes full bore, that'll finish off the cable companies.
