Cox added a new fee to my bill this month. Regional Sports Surcharge. I haven't added or changed anything. I feel the end for me is coming as well.

I've tried Playstation Vue and Directv Now. Other than streaming issues, Playstation Vue worked pretty well. Their DVR ability and streaming service integration worked fairly well. I'm testing DirectvNow.. now and like it less.

I have been using it since it came out. Previously I used SlingTV and while it was ok, there were always buffering issues with more popular shows. For example a season premier or highly watched sporting event. It was very annoying and from what I have read continues to happen to this day. When Playstation Vue became available I signed up for a trial of it and used it along with SlingTV for a few months. Never had an issue with Vue buffering or "wonking out" as my wife calls it during a show/sporting event so we cancelled SlingTV and have been with Playstation Vue ever since.

Is anybody using AT&T former UVerse internet plans? The "Internet 10" is the only thing available at my house and that sounds like a huge step down from my current 300 Mbps plan on Cox. Just curious if anyone can vouch for these lower tier AT&T speeds and how they hold up to streaming.

I have UVerse 24.  I generally get close to that on a wired connection. Just checked, and I'm getting about 23 right now.  I have had trouble in the past with the router, and was getting very slow (sub 10) wireless speeds, and that was definitely affecting the streaming and general browsing.  (My TVs are wired, as is my Son's xbox, everything else is wireless.)   I did some fiddling with the router and have alleviated most of that, and now get generally in the high teens (16-18 ish...) on wireless, which seems fine.  If your max is going to be ten, you can expect a little less than that as a general rule, and depending upon how much you stream, etc, I could see it being an issue.

Appears to be a legit email from DirecTV:

Your DIRECTV® equipment needs to be replaced*, but we have you covered.
*EQUIPMENT NON-RETURN & ADD'L FEES, CONDITIONS & RESTRICTIONS APPLY. For eligible customers only. See details below.

Starting on 3/20/19, you will no longer be able to view your local channels with your current equipment. But don't worry, we've got you covered! All you need to do is call us to schedule your free installation for your new equipment. Your new equipment will provide you with HD service at no additional cost.*



The fine print after the asterisk says the equipment is "free" after rebates, and I must also pay rent on equipment going forward at $7 a piece.
Being a DirecTV early adopter in the '90's doesnt have much currency with new owners at&t, so that sounds like my cue to jump ship.

I have several people I know who dropped the directTV dish and just took the directtv now (streaming.)   They all like it, but are annoyed by the constant calls wanting to know why they dropped their service.

I don't know if the email is legit; I haven't gotten one of these.

Ah.  OK.  I'm just using their stock equipment.  And on the entry contract (2 years).
