Thinking of switching from cable to streaming.

Musts:  live local, Fox Sports WI (Brewers, Bucks), hopefully share subscription with daughter (and son who will be off to college next year).

Trying Hulu live TV, ok, but can't share account with daughter in college in another town.

Also, I'm a channel flipper, so just not as easy as typing in the new channel.  My wife is happy about that.  

Any suggestions?  Youtube TV?  Others?

You can't use a VPN, the streaming services block it. (unless you know how to hack it.)

I have YouTubeTV. It has everything I need so I'm happy & Wifey's happy. (MTV, Bravo...bleccch.) PLUS live locals - 1 cool feature is when you fly from say Colorado to Wisconsin, you'll get the Sconnie locals while you're there. Just have to check-in to home area once every 90 days. 

NF, HBOMAX, Prime, Disney+, PeacockTV.....Way more content than time

Cut DTV after 25 years end of May. Hey idiots....try bringing down your price from $200 a month. 

They lost 7.5 million subs from June 2019 to June 2020 -- hmmmmmm......maybe this streaming thing is catching on?

I need to get off of Dishnet. Is YouTube TV on a stick?

I've got a one week trial with YouTube and Hulu going right now.  I'm leaning towards YouTube, but they don't have the History Channel.  Deal breaker for me.  Yeah, I'm a geek...

So, might just end up keeping the cable but returning all the DVR/HD boxes.  We don't DVR much of anything.

Do you have Spectrum Cable, EC ??   Take a look into the  $ 5.00 a month seasonal sports package.  Back to your antenna, give Wausau, Fox a go.
