    I discovered some cable companies can give you a broadcast only package which is just OTA channels with CSPAN. You still have to buy their box.

    Speculation is to retain NBC shows from going to Peacock.

    So apparently NBCU lost a lot of money after the Olympics debacle with Peacock and how they handled coverage of it, which is leading to this attempt at strong arming cable and streaming providers. Why not have Peacock be an add-on they can subscribe to through YTTV like HBO Max...

    Yeah I was looking into this for my mom and dad who are both elderly. Mom can't see so she relies on Alexa she can't do on-demand streaming like my dad and me. The problem is she loves her some HGTV, Lifetime, History, Bravo, and Fox News. :whatever: I got her Hulu Live, but when it stops working (like the app freezes or Alexa doesn't want to work) and I'm not around she gets very frustrated since my dad doesn't know how it works all that well either. The cable company nearby charges way too much and now they're pushing their customers to use their app to stream their channels as well. :hehe:

    Personally trying to do Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, and HBO Max with Peacock and Pluto TV for my hint of live TV. Our area is terrible when it comes to antenna reception so losing Locast really hurt. I don't see the point in getting Prime Video without getting actual Prime.

    NBC Universal needs to allow subscribers to join Peacock through other services such as Hulu or YouTube TV like Warner does with HBO Max.

    To me the golden age peaked when Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, House of Cards, and other shows like it were on at the same time.
