Cord cutting the wife friendly way
I’m looking to lower my subscription fees but still need to have a user friendly way to watch TV for the wife.
I can watch in any convoluted way on a computer or what not.
Currently on FIOS triple play outside the promotion period ($180/mo)
Have the option to switch to Optimum, but would prefer a more “modern” option consolidating OTA, streaming, torrenting, etc.
I’m generally aware of the options like Plex, Kodi, Tivo, Roku, but don’t have the time to try them all.
Programming wise all I really need is sports (mostly tennis) and some kind of Russian package for the wife (I know Roku has one for $15/mo).
DVR like functionality is a must (watch on demand, skip ads).
On the back end I’m capable of doing whatever it takes (including putting antennas on the roof and customizing software) but on the user side it should be seamlessly operated by a remote.
