I could have used 101 but I hope I’m a little further along than that.
I’m ready to officially cut the cord. I’ve had a couple of TV’s that are using just streaming and have been happy with the results. I’ve still got a few questions though.
Our main TV is in the family room on the first floor. I have a better than basic OTA antenna, but nothing fancy (no amplification) and get 49 channels (many of which I will never watch). It has Fire TV and we also have several streaming apps like Sling, Netflix, Hulu, etc. so I think I’m set to move on.
Trying to watch Penn and Teller Fool us tonight on CW had some interruptions when the signal pixilated and froze. I’m debating putting an antenna in the attic and wiring it to all sets. Is there really much of a difference?
My biggest question involves my internet connection. I currently have Spectrum cable which includes digital TV. I spend about $200 per month for the service for all sets. They offer an internet only offer for $45 for “up to” 100 Mbps. I tested and I’m at about 80 and it seems to be fine. Xfinity offers 300 Mbps for another $10. We have several devices but I don’t know if it is worth it for the extra money.
Finally, DVR. We like to time shift. What are my options? Currently it is all on the cable, but is there a way to set up a DVR without the cable that can hopefully record something while watching something else.
Any advice would be appreciated. I’d like to stop the cable as soon as I can.
