    We currently have Comcast and am totally fed up. The only other cable tv alternative is CenturyLink and prices are comparable. . Condo Assoc. prohibits Dish. Am thinking of going to a streaming service. Would like to hear opinions on what you're using instead of cable.

    Thanks in advance

    Our condo assoc. allows them, but they look ugly. Got 2 of them on my overhang...both of them my neighbors.

    I ditched the cable 3 weeks ago, left the internet, for now.
    Bought an antenna today, and picked up all the local channels, plus a few more.
    I'm okay with it.

    Get yourself a Mi box from wally world and read up about Kodi.

    Another option is PSVue or DirecTV now - I sub to DTVNow for sports and at $35 a month its fine.

    You are correct that we can use a dish. The HOA.discourages the use of them. We thought a about the dish but the repercussions. Were a small community so its easy to stir the pot and at this point its not worth it. Thank you for the reply.

    I got rid of cable 2 years ago. I use my local channels, Netflix ($13 per month) and Amazon Prime ($99 per year). Between those 3 services and YouTube I have plenty to watch.

    This doesnt cover any sort of sports package so if you're a big sports watcher you might need something more.
