Fubo adds MASN

Be careful with Fubo though as they don't have TBS (or TNT), which means you'll need another way to watch the MLB playoffs when the time comes.

I was going to switch from DirecTV Stream but that's a big issue.

This was my only hang-up with Fubo.  Going to miss a lot of March Madness unless I get Sling for a few weeks.  I'll deal with the playoffs when I have to cross that bridge.

I did it. I cut the cord. 

I couldn't justify paying $253 every single month anymore for a service that I only use for MASN. To add salt to that wound, they were going to charge me more money eventually! 

Here's what I did -

I started talking to an Xfinity rep on Reddit. Yes, Reddit. They have a whole subreddit that has Xfinity reps as mods. I sent them mod mail and began the process. Told them I wanted to bring my own gateway and don't want their equipment anymore. They gave me a link to see which aftermarket gateways were compatible with their service. 

I bought the Arris G36 modem/router. Keep in mind that Xfinity charges $15 a month, every month, for as long as you use their gateway. I paid $300 for it and the Geek Squad protection plan. It will have paid for itself in 20 months. I've had the same Xfinity gateway for 6 years now. I'll save you the math - I've spent around $900 renting that gateway. Never. Again.

Once I got my new gateway online with current service, I reached out to that reddit team again. They offered me their Superfast tier for $95 a month at speeds up to 800 Mbps. I agreed to paperless billing and autopay, which reduced my bill to $85 INCLUDING fees and taxes. They were very upfront. It's over. I cut it. 

I'm saving $168 a month. I checked the upfront price for MLB Tv for the whole year and its $150. I'm going to buy that package and STILL save $18 this month. I'll figure out a VPN before the season starts. 

If you're considering it, do it. It's very freeing. I'm saving $2016 a year by getting rid of that garbage.

Just realized tonight that Max will be carrying the NCaA tourney.  So, I’m good to go. By the time the playoffs come around, I switch back to YoutubeTV.

Im Going to see how I like Fubo..free week trial and the first month is $20 less.

Wowie I really need to audit my streaming services subscriptions.

Peacock? Nah.

Paramount Plus? Meh, no more Yellowstone. 

HBO Max? Finished Curb… nah.

Disney Plus? Kids.

Netflix? Man I friggin hate Netflix. They raise their prices every 73 seconds.

Direct TV stream? MASN.

I could theoretically cut down to Disney (whom I loathe as an organization, but their hooks are sunk into the kids.) and DTV.

Our cell phone plan gives us Disney, Hulu and ESPN+ for free.

Paramount is amazing so many great shows on there (seems like all are Sheridan shows).
