I say again. Firebox with gearstv, along with outdoor antenna is the way to go. No way I'm going back. Was nervous about cancelling. Looking back, I waited too long.

ive tried all the pay services, none of them have every channel you are used to on cable

they all are missing a few, but those channels are different for each one, so you have to research their channel lineups one by one to determine which service is best for you with the channels you wont miss.

PLaystation Vue ( doesnt a require a playstation just an amazon stick) and hulu (also requires either google chromecast or amazon stick) are the best. IMO

all of them are significant savings over cable, but obviously require a fast internet connection

I run the set-top box through the 4k Firestick into the 4K TV. Everything is cleaner, clearer and more vibrant colors. I'm getting another stick for my 5-year-old 65" 1080p TV. The firestick gives a better Netflix image than the TV's embedded app.

I pulled the trigger and dropped from Spectrum Gold that I wanted for the Redzone and NFL TV to Spectrum Select saving $40/mo. Out of 155 premium channels of HBO, MAX, et al, commonly nothing I want to watch.

I would go with an antenna but I live on the edge of a lake so all of the signals are caught by the high ground around me. My neighbor went with an AT&T cell/TV package and she lives about 40 feet higher than me but she has crappy service. I need the full strength Verizon cellular.

Best of luck to all.

The 4K firestick has some zits. It gets stupid or too hot after a few hours of use. Same as some TV apps.

My wife got a top end GoPro camera. The image stabilization is great. It is quite complicated so she bought a book on how-to.

I do not miss the 155 premium channels.

For a limited time: Buy 2 Fire TV Stick 4K devices, save $15 until Valentine's Day.

I only need one but they will likely cost $39 by fall.

As long as this is a kind of nerd thread I bought a Kinsa Digital Thermometer some time ago. It plugs into an iPhone. I had my flu shot Oct 28. My wife got a shot too in Nov.

She had an almost asymptomatic case of flu that I got. It was mild and over in the usual ten days but it seemed to keep coming back. I may have given myself a case of Aspirational Pneumonia. I always tried to let my immune system catch it but no luck.

I finally went to my M.D. and I could show her my temps for the 40 days I was ill. There are places to make notes like temp 101.8F took 500mg Tylenol. Then when I had coughing I would take a Tylenol-3 (300mg Acetaminophen, 30 mg codeine.) Codeine is very effective on me to stop coughs.

M.D examined my phone and it was a big help. She was quite concerned and gave me a loading dose of an IM antibiotic then ten Levofloxacin 750.
