    • Now when I do see a commercial it’s almost strange.

      Sometimes the latest funny commercial will be brought up in conversation during a family gathering. My mom will often turn to me and ask, "have you seen the latest [some brand] commercial with the [funny subject]?". I always have to remind her that I don't see commercials when I watch TV. I just watch the show or movie that I want to watch. To this day, it's still a strange concept to some.

      I also enjoy getting asked when talking about a new show I've been watching, "oh that sounds cool, what channel is that on?". A lot of times, if it isn't a Netflix or HBO original, I don't have the answer to their question. 😆

    • My reason is the Warriors. We had TV problems during one game and had to watch using the NBA app on the iPad. Uggh. They showed ONE - THE SAME ONE! - commercial every time there was a break in the action. I thought I would scream, no way to skip it. We Tivo the games so we can scroll through halftime, commercials, etc. If I had to watch on one of those apps I would not be able to stand it.

    • I recently discovered FuboTV. It's not cheap, $49 per month but I was able to watch all the NFL games I wasn't able to on Sunday Ticket.

      The NFL blocks games broadcast on local television from being streamed on their Sunday Ticket digital app. I discovered FuboTV when I couldn't stream a game on Fox (or maybe it was CBS).

      Looks like there's a decent amount of other sports like Soccer as well.

      It was easy to cancel via itunes store. Unlike trying to cancel cable which is a huge pain. I'll subscribe again in the fall.

      Anyone else cut the cord in the last year?

    • I didn't know about FuboTV but they look very interesting. Why did you pick them over YouTube TV?

      Looking at the reviews, it looks like Fubo has better coverage of soccer but YouTube has better streaming quality — for example, the Olympics at 60 fps. Hmmm.

    • I didn't know about FuboTV but they look very interesting. Why did you pick them over YouTube TV?

      honestly... the day I couldn't watch the Patriots (super bowl champions ahem) on Sunday Ticket or local cable I just googled how to watch NFL online and they showed up in the search results. At first I was skeptical, I just assumed the google servers were confused and thought I wanted to watch futbol but actually they had a lot of content and the quality was good.

      And a free a trial.
