    I know, but you have to have a PlayStation for it to work. Ps3 or PS4. I have neither.

    I'm interested in trying it. It says you have to have a PlayStation Network account.

    Have you considered Slingbox? I you have friends of family stateside that subscribes to cable and a good internet connection on both ends you could get all the programming they get. I use it(Slingbox 500 with a Roku) and love it although not as long distance as you, Massachusetts to Florida. There are no extra charges for Slingbox. I do have a dedicated cable box for the Slingbox that costs $10 per month.

    Why is this on the main news page? I think you are abusing your powers, Jeffrey. ;)

    Happy to help though. I consider myself a bit of an expert on this.

    My previous bill: $165. Cut cable TV and "Home Phone".

    Internet only: $60
    Amazon: $9
    Netflix: $9
    Hulu Plus: $11
    HBO Go: $15
    = $104
    = saving $60/month and have more stuff then I can possible watch.
    Added antenna: Free = OTA Channels
    Other things we use:
    Hoopla (Free stuff from our library)
    Many Roku & Chromecast apps: Crackle, PBS Kids, YouTube, Pluto TV, Vimio

    Services I've trialed:
    PS Vue & DirecTV Now

    Opinion on those:
    DirectTV Now I used when the CLE Indians were in the playoffs and TBS had the 1st or 2nd round games on. So I did the one month trial. Kept it another month to see if it would be good for watching TWD (Walking Dead) and some other shows (Better Call Saul) since they have AMC. It wasn't. I canceled. The On Demand was horrible. AMC only gave them the right to On Demand ONE series. LAME! This was before the new box they just released. So I was pretty much stuck watching TV like the old days... waiting until something came on and being in front of the TV at that time.
    This is no way to live anymore. :D

    Ps Vue, was great. The DVR-ish options are the best, hands down. It competes well with Hulu. I only tried the 7 day trial though and canceled on principle: II don't think a 7 day trial is long enough. Really Sony? Even HBO has a FULL MONTH trial. Step up your game Sony.
