I’ve got 200/20 internet from Mediacom, not so much for the speed but because of data caps. The next fastest company is a WISP at about 20Mbps for what I’m paying Mediacom for 200Mbps. And then there’s Frontier with a ripping 3Mbps for a little less.

There is a new company in town doing internet only via fiber but they’ve pretty much decided to go down the main drag in town which is quite a ways from me. They do say they will be expanding that but I’m not holding my breath.

Yesterday I cancelled YouTubeTV. It was a good service, but ATT TV will save me some money for the year I’ll keep it and it works well enough. IMO, there just isn’t a live streaming service that doesn’t have its own set of warts.

Be loooong time before we see fiber. We have one third your population at 4000 and we are very very sprawling rural. Unlike you with 95% urban..Our town nerve center consists of a Church, town hall, bank, Constables office (the old train station) and a 1894 fountain in a roundabout. I exaggerate a little ,.The Constable is also our Resident State Trooper.

I'm surprised we even have cable at all let alone with ''Gigablast'' at 940 Mbps available. Speaking of which. Its time to do my weeky speed test, just to keep Cox honest :devilish

I'll look at ATT again. They are the only viable option for conjugal bliss in my house.. My wife is a Yankee fan and if there is no YES network its a deal breaker. She got it from her father. Me? I could be a Red Sox fan if it really interested me more than a ''wit''....You Tube TV got rid of YES.

Yes is there I’m pretty sure. But keep in mind ATT TV has a 3 stream limit. You can fudge that a bit by using channel specific apps.

I wouldn't even bother getting a service that has the rsn's until those sprtsnets actually broadcast live events.

I agree, no sense paying for live sports you wouldn’t be getting.
Soon. NASCAR starts up in May 17th.
Well there was a year, 1994, without the World Series This could be the year with only the World Series. :biggrin

Ya, I'm in no hurry to switch. Its just that flame under my butt every time I write that check to Cox Cable. But like I've been saying. The few dollars, maybe $40 if I'm really lucky, I don't to trade convenience for any less. If ATT wireless internet came around here, then I would look at it real hard. But thats as likely as fiber coming down my street/road anytime soon. And ''should be expecting" (ATT's words) 25Mbps would barley cut it.. Although they do say up to a Gig for 39.95..up to 14 devices

Reprising this a bit.

The ATT box is great for using the ATT TV service and good enough for apps though there can be some issues with them.

I was having audio issues with it because they are outputting DD+ and my soundbar doesn’t deal with it well. Heavy bass, very boomy and the front audio levels are way higher than they should be. My soundbar can adjust for that a bit, but not much and not enough to make it really pleasant IMO.

In order to get audio right with it I had to change and connect the ATT box directly to the TV and use Optical out of the TV to the soundbar. That’s because Optical won’t pass DD+ and deprecates it to DD5.1. And that works better in my setup.

Just noticed that there is a AT&T TV ( and Now) app up on the Roku Channel Store, they must of come to a agreement since AT&T pulled it back in Jan.

Gives hope they will come to a agreement to have a HBO MAX app at launch.

Also we need HBO Max to come to an agreement to be on the Amazon FireTV devices.
