Dropping Satellite for Streaming Service

Spectrum/TimeWarner cable is doing the same thing. Use their app on Roku, fire stick, etc and no cable box rental. Meant to compete with YouTube tv and Hulu and priced accordingly. Not really advertised but thereís been a few announcements about it. Last I looked it was not even on their website.

When I checked on it several months ago was told you do have to have spectrum internet to get it.

I can't give any first-hand advice but maybe others will chime in.
Verzion still list the $70/$65 prepaid plan on their web site so I don't think it is discontinued. Both Hulu and YT TV have a restriction on how many times the location can be changed and it is determined by the location of the streaming device. Try https://support.google.com/youtubetv.../7193651?hl=en for YT TV response. So for me it seems like if I want local channels in a remote area and I travel full time my only option is satellite.

I recommend trying a VPS for custom VPN (not a commercial VPN service like NordVPN) before giving up. The VPS-based VPN will give you a static IP that no one else is using, which is less likely to be blocked by a streaming service.

For those of you that use Air TV DVR or similar can you connect those devices to RV park cable in lieu of over the air? All the places we stay have cable but it would be nice to record and watch later (and scan thru commercials).
If you do it that way any issues?

OTA recording only for the AirTV. Mine connects to my network at home for sharing to all TVs in the house and on the road via the Sling app. But I also share the Sling cloud recordings as well, plus watch my local OTA broadcasts from the RV while we are away.

You can use Roku to get Utube TV. $50 per month, live TV including sports channels, locals, HGTV, ETC. 73 LIVE CHANNELS.

There are a few free channels available on the Roku, but not all the ones I would want.

I've had more problems with trees on my tailgator than a Verizon signal. To be fair, we are full timers, and I've learned to work around many things.
