I think I read AT & T just acquired HBO too
Yea AT&T has been offering HBO for quite a while on there wireless plans and DirecTV Now, pretty cheap. The deal includes Time Warner which owns CNN, HBO, TBS, TNT, Warner Bros and DC Comics.
Maybe AT&T can finally fix the DCEU films?
They are no longer showing Season 1 & 2 but are now showing Season 3 & 4. They'll probably show Season 5 & 6 next
That sucks. Now everyone who missed the first 2 seasons will be lost.
I should write a letter to Roku about this
So they'll never know the original Darrin.
Rainmaker is available on The Roku Channel now. Good movie
Cord cutting subscriptions are starting to raise their prices by a few bucks.
Sling TV, DIRECTV NOW, YouTube TV, & PlayStation Vue Are All Raising Prices… We Look into Why… - Cord Cutters News
This will effect Madison.

Now DTV Now, finally added a DVR feature and gave everybody 20 free hours of recording.
I finally reactivated my old DirecTV Now account with the "Live A Little" package and my monthly cost is still $10 bucks a month with over 60+ channels.
I tried to record a show and get a dumb error issue. I had to chat with tech support to resolve the issue. The first agent said I have no DVR included and was unable to add it. Which is BS, I'm paying for service and the website says free 20 hours of DVR included. So I ditch that useless idiot and talk to another agent and that person says did you uninstall the app and reload it?
Well, I tried that and now I can finally record shows. Wow, the first agent was completely useless and a freakin' moran and the second agent just resolved my issue in a matter of minutes. Now I wish I got this issue resolved faster because I could record a couple of shows last night on my DTV Now DVR instead of my old DirecTV DVR.
As long things workout with DTV Now, I can finally cut off DirecTV and save money on my AT&T bill. I might upgrade my package like an extra $10 - $20 bucks because there a few channels I wouldn't mind having like Science Channel, Travel Channel, and El Rey Network and it would include MLB, NBA and NHL TV.
Yes they sent me an e mail they were raising the price. Darn. But the on demand and DVR options are too awesome
Rainmaker is also available on Hulu
Free HBO and Cinemax on PS Vue this weekend. I've watched 61, Heaven Help Us, Man on the Moon and will probably watch Justice League.
I now have HBO Now through Roku. I was going to drop CBS Access when my gift card expired but now I hear Patrick Stewart is coming back in a new Star Trek series so I'm keeping it. I did find another good show: Under the Dome I've been following.
4 years cable tv free. Eff 'em.
I think my answer may be to drop Hulu when my gift card expires in a few months and not renew. I'll just use ABC/Fox on demand with PSVue instead. I just have to start The Handmaid's Tale before time runs out. Heard its good.
That would leave my Roku line up as:
PlayStation Vue (Live TV, Network shows on demand and cloud DVR)
Netflix (Original programming and movies)
HBO Now (Original programming and movies)
CBS All Access (Star Treks and CBS shows on demand)
You Tube Red (Cobra Kai and home made videos)
The Roku Channel ( Select free movies and TV shows)
Amazon Prime (My select stream library)
SXM (Home on-line only channels)
All are pretty cheap or free except PSVue which is now a little under $50
The Roku Channel is now showing Seasons 5 and 6 of Bewitched instead of 3 & 4. My favorite episode is when Samantha changes Darrin's face forever.
I mainly use my Apple TV for:
HBO (Free since AT&T owns them)
Everything together is about $55 bucks, expect my movies when I buy them.
I have cable and internet (over $200 per month) plus Netflix and Hulu. Also Amazon Prime. I can't cut any cords because Mrs. Bag loves channel surfing. The cords just keep getting thicker.
We basically have the same situation, minus Hulu. But now with Spectrum service, I'm paying only $152/mo for cable (including all the premiums) and 100mb internet. I was paying about $220/mo with Comcast/Xfinity.
We watch a lot of cable networks, like Bravo, HGTV, Comedy Central, AXS TV, Velocity, ESPN2, etc. Plus we watch some network shows and news. And we flip-around too. I'm not sure that with service for 3 TVs, we'd do much better with a different option.
