Never thought I'd ever say or do this. I'm cutting all cable Bill's and going with streaming.


I pay over $200 with internet, all movie channels and home phone(need home phone for entry access)

I will keep the internet and keep it at highest allowable levels for gaming and such.

But enough is enough. I get home late and even when I'm home, I basically stream anyways lol


So....thoughts?


I do think Amazon will get my business

Of those options Netflix hands down. Amazon is a great company but their video service is crap.

Interesting because many say Amazon all day.


So here is some info on how I enjoy to watch tv.

I'm a huge news junkie, but I can stream the news or get my info from the net.

I love watching national geographic stuff and all sorts of movies.

Shows? Any of them really.

Seems Netflix is not as broad like Amazon?


I really need some good input and will decide Friday.


I'm a huge Google guy though, too bad their stuff is meh

I use Netflix and Amazon as well as "direct TV Now" streaming service. $35 a month for direct, 10 a month for Netflix and I'm going to have Amazon prime regardless of streaming or not @119 a year. You can also look at PlayStation Vue and sling TV compared to direct TV now. All 3 offer similar prices for live TV streaming.

I've got ps4 so I'm aware of vue, well somewhat.

But I feel Amazon and Netflix are really the only 2 to even consider?
Should I just get Amazon and Netflix?

Isn't that a bit of a contradiction? Why would I need Amazon and Netflix.

Why not just 1?

Netflix exclusives and sometimes one has a movie the other doesn't. It's only 10 bucks. As far as Amazon Prime I'm not giving that up for anything. I make the money back from free 2 day shipping within a couple months and I also use the streaming music service and unlimited cloud storage for photos.

I have the direct service just to still watch live TV. Has all the channels I want and now has free cloud DVR service. It's a little buggy but I tolerate it.

Netflix and Hulu are what I have. I have Kodi as well but I don’t find myself using it unless I literally have nothing to watch. Netflix is always rolling out with diverse content and Hulu gets some of the popular movies sooner than Netflix as well as TV shows the day after it airs on regular TV. And the Hulu originals are pretty good too.

The other plus side is Netflix will let you “download” content for when you’re traveling which is huge for me. It makes whatever content is available for download accessible without using data or needing cell service.

rado nobody gets amazon for the video service alone bro. they only have it because of amazon prime free 2 day shipping and the video service is a nice add on feature to that. if you are just comparing them as a video service alone it's just not a contest. netflix is a video service. that's all they specialize in. amazon is an online shopping company with a video service almost as an afterthought.

agree. all your shit that works now wont work in a month rip.

but fuck terrarium as well.

i got laptop connected to TV and controlled by usb remote. live sports, live programming, movies, shows, dvr and guide with the ability to schedule recordings, you get it all when you have a true pc. beats the piss out of all those lame ass sticks. i can watch formula 1 while i watch the stock market at the same time. PC offers the ultimate freedom to do anything. you are very limited with usb stick.

a stick is like using the internet with a phone. you can browse and shit but when you actually want to do something aside from use an app you need to pull out the real deal computer with full capability.

It's because they were giving you like $80 in discounts because of the bundle. You need to cut them completely and get a cheaper internet provider. I pay $50 a month for high speed. They are ripping you off.

I pay $50 a month for 25mb per second.

Small local ISP. See if there is any small local ISP's in your area. Not many people need more than 25mb per second brother.

The big ISP's can charge a ton because they are a monopoly in many areas.

My only options for providers are Verizon and Comcast, that's it. Where my residence is, that is my only 2 and I'm good with that. I've had both companies in both of my residences. I hated comcast and although Verizon is more, well they are a better provider whether or not anyone wants to admit that

Price vs value. I can stream anything I want in HD with speed to spare at $50 a month. Not debating anything, just letting you know in case you got other options.

Even if their was more options, nobody beats Verizon in regards of speed and reliability and such. So yes, they can charge that price and get away with it.


I'm still baffled that I cancelled, very unlikely move of me

For me it's about what I need. If I can do everything I need plus some with 25mb/s speed and get it for $50 a month than hell yeah I'm jumping on that deal.

If I wanted the absolute best I'd be looking at Google fiber. But they are only available in select areas.

google fiber is more expensive then that chart shows now but they are still the absolute speed king. nobody needs that kind of speed though. you could stream 4k 120fps streams to 50 tv screens and you'd still have room left. lol

You will never need 1000mb/s. It's overkill for what you need times 100.

Just trying to help ya bro. You're trying to argue over something you don't understand. You will never use 1000mb/s. You won't even come close.

To give you some perspective. A typical HD Netflix stream uses roughly 3-4mb/s. 3-4. Not 300-400. 3-4mb per second. And you think you need 1000mb per second. Lol

we've streamed netflix in HD to 2 tv's at the same time in my house and still had normal internet browsing speed on our phones/laptops. and that's with a 25mb/s internet connection.

you could spend a lot less and still have the same exact experience. a 1000mb/s connection will not load a webpage any faster then a 25mb/s internet connection. both will load instantly. it's not like the old days where we went from dial up to high speed. that was a drastic and obvious change in everyday Internet use. so i think you sort of have that kind of thing in your head.

the only time you would ever notice any difference between 25mb/s and 1000mb/s is if you tried to stream 5 HD movies to 5 different screens. that kind of thing is where you would notice 25mb/s struggle. for everyday internet use and streaming HD to 1 or 2 screens you will notice no difference at all. both will stream crystal clear movies and both will load anything you want on the Internet instantly.
