I have a netflix account and an antenna on the back of my TV that gets me 6 local channels, although I can't remember the last time I watched any of the local channels.

The only time my wife and I watch TV is when we are working out in the basement each night. However, I recently discovered podcasts, so I've been listening to those vs watching the tv. I could probably cancel Netflix and not even miss it, but it's nice to have access to a kids movie for the family to watch together on a weekend.

Long time Directv that finally cut it after the NFL season. I already had appletvs on each tv.

I had a local guy come out and put antenna outside where the dish was and have locals via antenna if needed.

I have tried YouTube and Hulu so far. We had the Hulu (non-live)/Disney +/ESPN+ bundled.

It probably makes the most sense to continue on the Hulu live + bundle. I am not that crazy about Hulu interface or picture.
It is an adjustment and I don’t think my wife has yet to watch tv unless I turn/tune it on.

I am paying much less than before and it is refreshing having options. However, I think cost as risen and spectrum internet/tv bundle might be better now.

The perfect setup for me would be if ESPN could be gotten stand alone.

ESPN streaming
Locals via antenna
Hulu (non-live) for on demand

If you’re a Verizon cell customer check out the package they have available to unlimited plan subscribers. I get Hulu, Disney+, ESPN+, and Discovery+ included.
