    NBC Sports in Flex Pack?

    My parents have the Flex Pack. They mostly watch the local channels and basic channels like TBS, USA, and TV Land so this works well for them. I add the National Action Pack for them for football in the fall and the Regional Action Pack for them for MLB in the summer. This saves them a decent...

    Multi-sport with Flex Pack?

    I haven't been around this part of the the forum in quite a while because I no longer have Dish but my parents still do. My dad is a big football fan so I just did my annual routine of going on Dish's customer support chat to see if I could get him any promo rates for Multi-Sport with Redzone...

    Making a Murderer on Netflix

    Im surprised there wasn't already a thread about this. Everyone is talking about it on my Twitter and Facebook feeds. It's a documentary series about a man in Wisconsin who went to jail for rape even though there was no physical evidence he was involved. He was in jail for 18 years before a DNA...

    I'm curious if anyone here has any experience with Sonos? I'm getting my friend a either a Play 1 or Play 3 as a wedding gift. They registered for the Play 1 but he's my best friend and I'm one of the groomsmen so I don't mind splurging for a Play 3 if their is a substantial difference. I've...

    ESPN Ticker

    When did we get the ESPN Ticker added to the sports section? It's a nice touch. I don't visit the sports section as often as I used to anymore but I'm still there from time to time and today is the first time I have noticed it.

    How are you liking Sling TV?

    Now that it's looking like my Tigers won't make the MLB Postseason I'm thinking about dropping my cable subscription a couple months earlier than planned. The good thing about using Charter with my Tivo is that I can seamlessly switch between OTA and cable with the same equipment and not lose...

    Black Mirror on Netflix

    I wasn't sure if this should go in the streaming forum or here since the show is on Netflix. It seems to fit more with the usual theme of discussion here though. This show is kind of like The Twilight Zone but it's all based around technology. The name Black Mirror comes from what our various...

    Thinking about adding Charter TV

    I've been using OTA only with WMC as my DVR for the last year. I just received the 4 tuner Roamio with 2 years of service paid up front as a Christmas present. I've been perfectly happy with OTA and streaming for the last year but now that I could have 2 years with my only equipment fee being a...
