  1. How come youtube tv will not carry the history ch. THANKS

    • It’s a great question, Bob. I’d love to see YouTube TV offer us different channel packages to choose from (like ATT) or add-ons (like Sling). We’ll see

  2. I watched you on YouTube & you showed a list of Streaming stations such as Hulu, Sling, etc. with what channels each provider has. I thought you said it was on your website, but I can’t find it. Can you tell me how to locate it on your website?
    Thank you

  3. When ever I see Youtube vid’s on streaming services factoring in the cost of a high speed internet connection never seems to be mentioned. I understand most people have some sort of internet access but there is the possibility that a boost in MPS or bandwith if needed may result in additional costs. Think newbie cord cutters need to factor this potential cost into their decision. Love your videos, thanks

    • Thanks, Darrell, I’m glad it was helpful. You’re right about the cost of internet varying with internet speeds. That said, I think most people probably get sold higher speeds than they need. My family has 150/150 which is somewhat low nowadays and we still have 30+ devices connected and stream all day, plus I work from home. I think the wifi mesh is the key to the internet equation for larger homes with lots of devices.
