TV options

With Spectrum and the Disney/ESPN/etc battle, it got me thinking about revisiting options for watching not only UD, but sports in general. Yep, it's a yearly thing for many of us I'm sure.

For years I've been on the Spectrum Choice, where you pick a handful of channels for a cable package. This battle would do that in for me. I've done a couple Fubo, etc trials, but the cost for those subscriptions + the cable bill was too high.

Does anyone have a service or two that has not limited their sports-watching abilities? Or, any you've tried that haven't worked out?

And yes, I saw Flyerferd's post (http://www.udpride.com/forums/showthread.php?t=36861), and it's a great write-up. But it's not getting traction, and is a little more "direct" than this post, which is more sports watching options as a whole. Figured I'd try this, but happy to consolidate if it makes more sense.

I too have Spectrum Choice, but I also have ESPN+, so the legal battle hasn't negatively impacted me thus far.

It is annoying having to switch platforms when I want to change games, but I usually have a computer or two going if I'm watching multiple games anyway.

Something has to give though, I am currently paying for a service that Spectrum is only partially providing me.

Youtube TV is pretty close to cable without having cable.

Youtube TV gets you all the Dayton games that Spectrum does. You still need ESPN+ to get the rest. But between Youtube TV and ESPN+ I think I got every men's b-ball game last year (missed one at the most).

The one potential drawback is no Bally's. But I don't watch Reds or Cavs, so I don't care. It had no effect on Dayton games.

The cheapest way to watch sports is uzzu.tv Its about $11 per month. My experience is that you can see all the flyer games except 1 or 2 per year. I use ESPN+ for the games I can't watch on uzzu.

Thanks for the shout out. I have Hulu with live TV, which gives me every channel UD is on and with the bundle actually includes ESPN plus. This runs me with tax about 90 a month. Similar to YouTube TV, this does not include the Bally sports package, so, if you are a reds, Indians, blue jackets, or Cavs fan, that could become an issue. Luckily, my professional fandom resides outside of the state of Ohio, so itís a non-issue for me.
