Sadly, all of these streaming services are making the same exact mistakes that cable TV has made for decades…. too many worthless channels bundled together in useless packages. I’d never pay $15.00 a month for these channels as there is nothing here I have to watch.

The best streaming service would be one that would include local broadcast channels and the network shows they air, as well as allowing me to choose the other channels I want to add to my personal package.

More channels aren’t better…. its just more channels

Is this service free for Spectrum customers? Would I be able to load a free app onto an AppleTV and just sign into my account like I can soon an iPad now?
