Re: advice for cutting the cord

One of the many things that pisses me off about cable is I wanted to add the Redzone but in order to do so I have to add a $20/month "gold tier" sports package. I only want the Redzone, why do I have to add 5 other channels I'll never watch?! I ended up doing the Redzone streaming option on my phone for $35 for the entire season.

Re: advice for cutting the cord

Cable and internet has become way too expensive. You really have to watch your subscription game too. When I cut the cord, I was using Sling...which was ok. The most aggravating thing was my HD antenna trying to get NBC was a challenge most the time.

I usually rotate through my Amazon Firestick Prime account HBO, Netflix and Showtime. Ill turn one on and the others off to catch up when I need.

Side note, Amazon Music subscription is awesome, mostly all the music I want for $8 a month

I like the fact Htown has kinda agree to a mafia-like "paying a point" a month for cable action.

I have one, tried it and it didnít like it. Didnít like how unreliable it was at times. And thereís the sketchy/illegal part of it. But if itís working for you thatís great.

I had heard of jailbroken firesticks before but had never bought one or seen one used.Since the respondents here think I was getting ripped off I have been doing more research.I paid 85 bucks for my firestick and that included 4 months of programming which are supposed to expire in December.
So I am seeing people selling a lot of jailbroken firesticks for over 85 so I dont feel so bad now.
Also the youtube videos I watch on how to use them show that you have to go to different apps to do different things,mine is all integrated under one app so maybe he has some special setup and thats why he's charging I dont know,his app looks nothing like the ones I have seen on youtube.
I wasnt planning on renewing so we will see if programming still continues.
I already have comcast,just thought I would give this a try to see how it worked,it was worth the 85 investment just for the sunday ticket,everything else is a bonus,but as Matty said it doesnt always work right,but luckily it has worked so far for the football games

Totally, it took me all of 40 minutes to do it. Only reason it takes so long is because i have to type using my fire tv remote. Just google troy point he will show you how to do it.

Shit worked like at best 58% of the time, total crap shoot consistently had to keep finding new add ons that would work.

the interesting point is how is this dude collecting $10 bucks a month for this and what is he even doing outside of the first set up that would require $10 a month. He is paying a $120 a year to steal movies he could just rent in perfect 4K for $5.99. That is like 20 movie rentals, i doubt i even rent that many in a year. Talk about a sucker born every minute.

Bro you spent $85 plus $120 a year that is $205 with recurring payments. You are getting ripped off. LOL! I can't stop laughing. just google troypoint kodia. LOL!

Correction,if I would have kept paying him I would have been ripped off,but thanks for the heads up,it forced me to research it more,my total investment has been 85 so I dont consider that a ripoff
