    So basically, if it isn't a Bucs game, I'm not getting an NFL game :lol:

    Oddly enough, Jags stadium is exactly 150 miles from my house. I suppose that one still gets blocked though.

    Just wanted to make sure I wouldn't get blocked on any of the college games.

    I have all 4 major networks.
    Raymond James is less than 92 miles from my house.

    So does this mean I'll get both?

    You can get Red Zone if you buy the $10 sports pack add-on from Vue. I think it's worth it.

    I'm not that worried about NFL, if I get it, fine, if not, no biggie. It was college I wanted to make sure of.

    The Vue sports pack adds quite a few channels that will broadcast NCAA games this fall. Check it out.

    So the Browns at the Bucs is on Fox right now, and even though I am only 92 miles, it is blocking that game for me.

    Interestingly enough, I can see the Rams and the Chargers, two LA teams, fine on CBS on Vue.

    Schit makes no damn sense :lol:

    Easy enough fix though, I just hooked up the indoor OTA antenna.
    I get ABC, CBS, and FOX clearly on it, just not NBC, so I should be fine most of the time.

    not seeing it anywhere on my Fire devices, so maybe they were just doing some testing on it.

    Will be nice if they can get it worked out.

    I saw the article over the weekend, I believe I saw it was in the between testing and before release. Should be out relatively soon.

    So I've had PS Vue for a long time. It looks like they have local channels now. I got rid of them about two months ago.

    Problem was I wasn't saving that much money.

    Vue: 54
    Internet: 65
    HBO GO: 15
    CBS: 7
    Total: $141

    Frontier: $145 - includes all the above plus I get Cinemax and Showtime. And it's a lot more seamless and integrated IMO.

    Had CBS, ABC, NBC, and Fox on anteanna until a month ago, only missing NBC on Vue now. The two or three screens is awesome during football season.
    Total: $85

    Is 145 the introductory price or the long term price?

    When i had introductory pricing (or even customer retaining pricing) I couldn't justify it either under BH and then Spectrum. After that went away, Spectrum absolutely would not work with me, and was going to cost me almost 192 dollars a month to keep what I had when I was paying 134 a month.

    Now I just have PS vue, which offers all 4 majors plus mytv 65 as live channels. Pay 54.99 for the elite and 64.95 for Spectrum internet. for just under 120 a month. So i am saving 72 dollars a month now. Of course when it would have only been 14 dollars a month AND ps vue hadn't yet added all the live locals, it just wasn't worth it.


    btw, for anyone else that has ps vue, do any of you use the mobile app for it? I noticed that in the elite package, I can get every channel (while NOT on my home network) except CBS Sports Network, Decades, and Pop channel.
    Local CBS comes through.
    I am not sure what was or wasnt available before because I just went through it entirely for the first time.
    It also drains the hell out of your battery, so you better be plugged in if you use it :lol:

    Long term. It surprised me. It must be because of so many people switching to these other platforms.
