    I've been seeing these popping up on Craigslist a lot lately. Funny cause it only take like 3 min to install everything. Can't knock the hustle though.

    What does this mean exactly? You're bootlegging everything with a rooted firestick?

    I would switch to all streaming but I would be making up the difference in Bandwidth limit overage fees. tfw 300gb limit

    Sling TV - Streams the major channels I typically watch including ESPN with option to add HBO, Showtime, and any other cable channel etc - ~$30
    https://www.sling.com/
    Sling box - Streams content from another TV. Have it hooked up in a spare bedroom of a relatives house. ($300 - might be cheaper elsewhere)
    http://www.slingbox.com/Products/Sli.../Features.aspx

    Netflix - $8-10/mo

    Outside the upfront cost of the sling box - this is a good set up. $40-50/month you can still get everything you need.
    ...Nobody calls me Krunk Fu. You got the wrong guy. I'm the Dude, man.

    Yeah you can. I just don't like the people who sell preloaded boxs/sticks. They profit from other peoples work and it also means a lot of the time the buyer has no idea what they have and how it works so they end up getting annoyed at the devs. It's a big reason why lambda stopped working on genesis.

    My ISP only allows 300gb usage per month. If I was streaming all of my HD tv content, I would easily go over that, many times over. I struggle to stay below it even without streaming all my tv. I get overage fees every 50gb I go over 300gb. I did the math at one point in time estimated 1080p streaming bandwidth per hour would be well above what my cable bill would be now.

    Unfortunately not worth it for me with the shady tactics that ISP's have nowadays.

    I had the kindle fire stick and rooted it myself (so easy don't know why anyone would pay for one already rooted) and IMO Its not worth it.

    It can be such a pain the ass to find what you want to watch, and a lot of times what you're streaming is horrible quality. Especially live TV/sports

    What's the point in having a 50"+ HD TV if half the things you're streaming are terrible quality.

    Also, it's things like this that are going to force cable companies to impose data restrictions and overage charges

    Yeah live sports is a pain, but TV and movies is pretty good. Great for free, what addons are you using? Have you looked into a real debrid account?

    My ISP only allows 300gb usage per month. If I was streaming all of my HD tv content, I would easily go over that, many times over. I struggle to stay below it even without streaming all my tv. I get overage fees every 50gb I go over 300gb. I did the math at one point in time estimated 1080p streaming bandwidth per hour would be well above what my cable bill would be now.

    Unfortunately not worth it for me with the shady tactics that ISP's have nowadays.
    no fkn kidding , that figures , i have cablevision, optimum, no idea if they have overage charges , my girl has a smart tv and she hasn't heard of this either , same company

    i have free wifi so , i don't see how they could at this point, i thought hard wiring, the firestick , like my girls smart tv would make for a better experience , maybe the firestick can't be hard wired? all new to me, i just had to do something to get rid of my $100 tv bill when there is never anything other than sports i want to watch, it's out of control and i've had enough


    i'm with cablevision, so i'm good for now , even if i get a year of this, i saved $1200

    i'll cross the bridge when i have to

    It can be such a pain the ass to find what you want to watch, and a lot of times what you're streaming is horrible quality. Especially live TV/sports

    What's the point in having a 50"+ HD TV if half the things you're streaming are terrible quality.

    Also, it's things like this that are going to force cable companies to impose data restrictions and overage charges

    cuz $100 a month for 4 football games , or none in off season is not for me anymore , i'll watch em in poor quality

    I've got a movie room with a 120" screen. No way am I watching anything less than HD on it. I won't even use on demand through direct tv because the sound/clarity isn't nearly as good as bluray. Sme with most Netflix. My brother-in-law always has bootlegged movies that aren't out on video yet and I'm like no thanks jeff, I'll wait.

    Yea this is a big gripe of mine. When my brother in law and sister went on vacation they asked me to watch their dogs and cats and I stayed over at their place a few nights

    They have a brand new 4K 70" TV and here I am watching football/movies/basic tv shows in sub par quality. And I'm talking like bad quality. You lose a lot when you stream; especially bootlegged content.

    IMO it's fine if you're not a quality snob, in fact, I envy you cause I know you're saving money but I just can't look past it

    Don't have a choice mayne.

    Company says internet sevice is 30 per month if you also buy along their basic cable package which brings it up to 110 per month. The cable package is worthless IMO.

    But if you just want the internet, they charge 110.

    I have no idea how this happened, but we got lucky and Comcast begged our asses to stay and basically bundled HBO, cable, and our premium internet tier for a ridiculously low rate.

    Before dumping the TV package, see if they'll make a deal first and play hardball. Cable/ISP are starting to see the cordcutting domino effect because they're offering such a s%#t deal:

    Cable fee + Cable Box (some have a fee per device) = Basic Channels + No HD without spending a lot extra + NO on demand + NO DVR + COMMERCIALS
    vs
    Streaming Box/Smart TV/Stick = HD On Demand shows and movies that you actually want to watch you can record without commercials.

    Obviously there are the aforementioned quality drawbacks I suppose compared to Direct TV (never had it, so I can't compare it fairly) and obviously bluray, but Comcast cable is so hideous looking without essentially paying a newborn for the still lousy service you're getting with them in particular. It's just like SaviorSelfJT said above, it's a complete crock the way the TV packages are priced because the "basic" package might as well be flushing $30 down the toilet and watching it swirl about for entertainment. Hulu + (adfree version) and Netflix alone are a better value that most of the cable tiers until you start paying out the ass, and speaking for myself I have more TV series to catch up on than ever in my life, all on demand, better quality, and without being subjected to the same daft Mountain Derp ads until I subconsciously hate neon green.

    For streamers, I have to recommend that you check out PlayON/PlayLater, it's an online streaming DVR that lets you legally download the content to your PC before its licenses expire. Only caveat is you need a decent PC or it disconnects.

    My only advice on streaming devices is to see if you can play around with them first or at least look at the specs. I found the Amazon Fire TV (first run) was worlds better than both the Roku 3 and Chromecast stick for speed and UI smoothness. Roku updated their models in the meantime, but I'd still suggest either seeing first hand if possible or going through somewhere that allows returns like Costco. That extra processing oomph makes a big difference (haven't compared to the Fire stick, to be clear) and the Chromecast doesn't come with a remote, so you need your phone on hand any time you want to use it. The one advantage the box does have is you can also hook up a direct ethernet connection if you have a bigger TV where the fidelity is an issue. Hell, I'm sure that if you had young enough kids you could use one of those Amazon Fire TV box compatible controllers and have a backup budget gaming option over a small tablet - as stupid as most app games are, they're pretty much made for kids anyway (I'd assume).

    As easy as it is to root the Amazon devices, $70 for a preloaded stick ain't bad at all because it can be a bit of a PitA to get working if you can't easily look between a PC and the device to set it up. Or if you impatient/don't want to deal with it like me, so good idea.

    Enjoy the streaming and extra cash, cheers!
    I will stand firm, I refuse to kneel - The fury in me is divine
    My dark grave awaits, my fate is revealed - But I'm not afraid to die
