    Always wondered why farm houses on hudge tracts of land were always right next to the road. Now we know...... innernets!

    Wrong. I ragged on you for being dumb enough to help perpetuate a scam. Right now, being a proselytizer for bitcoin or paying for bundled media services both fit that category. Sucker. Seriously, even a "premium" service like HBO has two shows I'd watch. The rest is boring crap. Who'd actually pay for this? That's what I think when I open up HBO and look for something to watch. Other than, The Duece and Game of Thrones, I haven't watched anything on HBO since Westworld's first season ended, a full year ago. What should I pay for a service that only produces 18 hours of watchable programming per year?

    The Last Jedi? Meh. I fell asleep twice. If I paid for it, I'd ask for a refund. The day Hollywood starts offering full refunds for their crappy products is the day I start paying for media sight unseen. The other night I watched Yojimbo for probably the fifth time. Why? Because 99% of the new movies suck. I can't sit through them, even for free.

    Which is why Roku is so great you just buy the stuff you want to watch versus a full blown subscription to Netflix or HBO. Since I have always been to cheap to purchase premium channels when I had cable there are plenty of really excellent series to watch for a few dollars. If some reason I can't find a sporting event being streamed that must be watched, I just go to the brew pub and watch there while sipping good beer.

    Are you doing it wrong? I think most of us jump on the "Free Trial" every so often and binge the few shows we're interested in for like a month. Once that's done, just cancel.

    We have been using SET TV for $20 /month to watch live sports (Go Bruins/Cs). 500 + Channels works great. All the HBOS.

    That too. I have no problem paying for a few months here and there if I'm still in the middle of some good shows. I kind of bounce around between Hulu+, HBO Now, and a few others.

    I just cancelled our cable. Comcast was extracting $220 a month. The internet only is $112 a month without a contract so they will still bleed us

    That SET TV sounds too good to be true

    Yes, I would question the content as just too good to be true for the most part. Getting into bed with piracy - would not trust them with any credit card info so then you have to do the prepaid cards to be safe. https://flixed.io/set-tv-not-legitimate/
    And a site that discusses the service and reviews from subscribers: https://www.highya.com/set-tv-reviews

    I'm sure there are better options and more informed recommendations.. but I got an arris surfboard (can't remember which one) and google wifi. Canceled cable and now just internet. Was never a big TV guy so I can find something to watch on Netflix or Amazon and stream Bruins games off reddit. No looking back...

    I am no IT guy, not even close... But I don't think there is much to a modem, it either works or doesn't. Amazon has a bunch of modems with 1000+ positive reviews. Start there. Look for one that has higher download and upload speeds than the service you receive. You can call your service provider to confirm the modem model works with their service.

    I have a separate modem and router. I don't know if the combo units are better than two individual pieces....
