    Hello my name is Ben and I’m addicted to live sports.

    Otherwise I would have cut that cord A LONG time ago! I might be able to finally do it with Youtube TV but it’s not clear yet.

      if you like non-Nth American sports like I do, then you can get them online streamed . Will be 3yrs without cable in April for me $$$$$$$ saved!

      Sadly, I still need subs. My thing is NCAA Football, making ESPN a must have. That and ABC, CBS and Fox, obviously.

      It’s what ESPN has become is why people are cutting the cord. Barely qualifies as a sports channel anymore. Too much agenda.

      Just search on their subscriber loses.

    Well you either spend ~$70/mo for tv alone or ~$120/mo for a bundle vs streaming for $9, and what does that $70 get you, yes there’s sports but if your not a sports nut why have it.

    The entire point of cord cutting for me was to escape Bell/rogers/etc. No way I’d look at their iptv offerings.

    I was a cord cutter long before cord cutting was a thing. Tipping point for me was when Rogers bill went from $30 to $33 a month. That was over 15 years ago.
