/r/CordCutters - Say Goodbye to Your Cable TV Provider!
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...
The nfl subreddit sent me here... How can I watch live nfl games? im thinking about paying for NFL+ but the app says it only supports using small devices like phones, tablets... i wanna be able to screencast on a TV... what would be the best option?
I have an older etec non smart tv that has a USB port.
Trying to load tv and movies on USB and all is fine on my laptop, but tv only seems to want photos or mucic and will not recognize what's on there.
Any possibility of a fix or is my tv just too old?
Thanks in advance.
