When I saw that my AT&T bill was going up $60+ from one month to the next, I said that's it. I'm done. hearing that there was no promotion they could offer me, I said just cancel my U-Verse, but I'm keeping my fiber internet. I'm paid through October 15th so I will have it for that long, and so I have that long to figure out how I can get the shows we like to watch. We're an elderly couple (I am 71, hubs is 81) so we're not very tech savvy. But we don't watch a lot of TV and our tastes are simple. We mostly watch network shows (CBS, a few on NBC and ABC, NatGeo, Animal Planet, PBS, etc.) I already have Netflix, Hulu, I just picked up Paramount Plus, (for CBS All Access), Disney Plus (for the animal shows) and DiscoveryGo (for another animal show), and I still have a few weeks to figure out what I'm missing in terms of shows we watch. What I don't know is a heck of a lot more than I know. Such as (1) right now we record all our shows and fast forward through commercials. Are we going to have to watch commercials on these streaming channels? (2) What happens when I return the AT&T equipment? How will I get internet and see the shows on TV? (3) Will I be able to record shows, and if so, how? Right now it's so simple, I just turn on the TV, click the green recordings button, and select something I've previously recorded to watch. Something tells me it's not going to be that simple going forward. I wouldn't mind a bit of advice, but remember you're dealing with a 71 year old who is limited in tech-speak. Thanks in advance...
