I've been using Hulu TV for over a year now and thinking about canceling it. The service has been great but I rarely watch TV anymore. I'm probably 95% sports at this point and most of that has been with ESPN+, although with the EPL starting up this weekend I would need NBCSN and then CSN Chicago for Bulls games later this year. I already know my parents Spectrum account and use it for a few services I don't already get through Hulu, but have thought about just expanding that for the times I would need regular ESPN, FS1/2, or NBCSN.

I've also thought about just grabbing one of the individual Sling packages. I think they're only $25 and Blue has all the sports channels I'd want outside of ESPN. I'm pretty sure regular ESPN 1&2 are outside of ESPN+, but again for the few times I'd need that I could just use my parent's login lol.

Might see if my cable company has any deals as well. They have a TV Anywhere app which I would just use on my Roku vs a box. Doubt they'd be able to hook me up for less than $25 a month though. Plus they charge a bunch of extra fees on bulls*** I don't need.

We had Sling for several months until we finally cut all the way and needed local channels. Hulu TV has been solid for us, combined with Philo for the Viacom stuff like Comedy Central and the Nickelodeon/MTV/VH1 stuff (read: stuff for the boykins plus Snoop and Martha's Potluck, which we just discovered and is awesome).

I'm looking forward to Disney+, though. I know they're talking about bundling it with regular Hulu and ESPN+, but I think we've been happy enough with what we have that we'd just add Disney+ (or maybe they'll add it to Hulu live?). I'll know more about the value once college football starts up, since I think I'll actually have access to almost all of Florida's games this season after having been pretty much no-non-local service last season.

Comedy Central has a free app and nearly all of their shows are there. Downloaded it for my mom. She loves Trevor Noah.

It’s getting as bad as regular cable now with every stupid “media” provider having their own service now.

Been enjoying Prime Video this year. The Boys and Good Omen have been great, and I think I'm gonna start Man in the High Castle soon.

I have one episode of Stranger Things season 2 left. Might check out The Boys after that.

It's a neat little show. I don't think it'll be everyone's cup of tea, but definitely fills a niche. I rather like it's take on superhero corporatism.
