2 months in after cutting the cord

After cutting the cord back in November I had my doubts as to whether I would be able to stick to it but I’ve found out that I really don’t miss anything at all.

I do have a couple of things I need to edit on my last post.  I ended up returning the $95 Amazon basics external antenna and used the $35 Amazon internal antenna instead because the external one was overkill.  I receive all the local OTA channels cleanly with the $35 antenna so why waste the money.

Now as far as content goes, I have to admit that we watch more stuff on Amazon Prime than anything else.  I had no idea how good their quality of programming was.  If I could only pick 2 of the following services(Amazon Prime, NetFlix, Hulu, HBO Now and SlingTV) I would go with Amazon Prime and SlingTV.

I have had a couple of people tell me that they have had issues with their Kindle Fire TV’s.

I have the following model of Fire TV:


And I have it wired directly into my router(not wireless).  I think having it wired in makes a huge difference.  I had issues streaming shows on an Apple TV earlier last year so I ran ethernet to the device and it worked much better.
