GoÖ.

Would like to have local channels and the major sport networks for football.

Save the football comments for the politics page.

Yes, I know I can use an antenna, but Iíve tried it at my house before with little success.

I just cut the cable for YouTube tv. I don't expect to have any issues with that approach. I did have to buy a Google Chromecast as my TV is getting old and the apps are no longer compatible.

Oh, google it and see what cnet, Tom's hardware, etc have to say about them. Roku and sling get some love too.

I went with sling and just pay an extra $15 a month for the sports package. I went with an HD indoor antenna off Amazon for the locals and it’s worked great. Took about 5 minutes to set up and it picked up every local channel and then some (29 total) with pretty good quality.

YouTube TV. Cut the cord years ago. Have the app on my phone and plug my phone into my tv at the deer camp RV. No more antennas to fight. Works really well

Another YouTube TV here. Had it two plus years now. It has gone up in a price and I usually add NFL NFL Redzone during football season but still cheaper than cable.

I have Youtube TV as well. I also have the Disney+ and ESPN+ bundle. So I can get pretty much all the sports.

You can buy NFL package on YouTube TV or Sling TV. There’s a promotion now I think that comes with free knee pads & BLM tee shirt.

I have Sling for the Pac12 network. They do not stream local channels so I also have an HD antenna. I am not sure if you will be able to stream local channels on Youtube TV or not if an antenna will not work for you. The problem is the lag time when you switch from the antenna to Sling. I have to change my inputs on the TV. They supposedly make a device to solve this problem, I just haven't bought one. Just know that even on Sling going from channel to channel is not as seamless as cable.

We are doing youtubetv. Believe its 65$ a month and no complaints so far. Believe you can add packages also and customize your channels some.

Just make sure your internet is up to snuff

Billy, I don't see either in the listing.

It looks like you can pay for The Cowboy Channel+ and add to your apps. You need android, apple, roku or Fire tv to do it.

RFDTV is available the same way. Both are $9.99 per month.

I had Fubo last year and was relatively happy. Which of those two do you prefer if you had to pick one?

I wasn't impressed with sling. I never could get any sort of clarity. No lie, the antenna was better. Don't watch sports so can't be of much more help.

I have Youtube TV. No complaints really get my sports and the local channels too. I tried Hulu but too hard to navigate the channels.
