It was also available on Amazon Prime Video. I believe all Thursday night games on the Fox schedule are also streamed on Amazon Prime.

I get all the Packers games through the antenna. Anyone know why tonight it says no signal on the FOX station?


Blackout thing? I live in Chicago and watched it via antenna.

Hulu is running a Black Friday deal. It’s $0.99 per month for 12 months before going to their regular price of $7.99.

Speaking of Hulu TV....I found out they have FS1, ESPN, AND BTN. BEtter than Sling for sports for the same price.

Thanks for the tip! I’ve never regularly subscribed to a streaming service. I’ve just occasionally subscribed to Netflix for a month here and there. Anyways, I’ll be tying Hulu now for 12 months.

Made the jump from Uverse to Hulu Live (with Charter internet) last month, and haven't looked back. Half the price of Uverse all-in, and virtually no problems so far. The HL interface is a bit clunky, but that will develop to a better product with time, I'd think.

I tried Vue and it's not bad but less than stellar to navigate. I only used it for the free week because I can't get Sunday night games at home so I didn't really set it up with a lot of personal settings but it wasn't as easy as regular cable guides to find what I want. My guess is it will eventually get better. The original Amazon prime interface was pretty brutal too but got better.

There needs to be a King Thames version of the bible.

Have direct tv now. When I record shows on Fox the mouth doesn’t match the voice when I play it on my amazon fire stick in one room but works just fine on my roku in the other room.

Anyone know what gives?

IIRC, it's related to your sound settings on the fire stick. Go to settings>Display & Sound> Audio

If the Dolby Digital Output is set to "Auto" change it to "off". If it's set to "off" change to "Auto". Play the show and check the audio to see if it's in sync now.

Stearns probably had no interest in getting a C because the Brewers need a C. It makes much more sense to trade for 3B when it's not needed, and then move the other 3B to 2B, then trade for a 2B, but since the 3B is now at 2B, then the new 2B goes to SS

How is that better than Sling? If you get Sling Orange and Blue it has all that stuff for $40. I only have the $25 sling, as ESPN is worthless to me. I have to say it's been great. Not only for the Bucks, but my wife gets to watch her favorite Food Network and HGTV stuff.

Edit: Ah, BTN, didn't see that. I hate college sports, but I could see that being a big plus.

They actually had a better interface for Hulu several years ago then decided that everyone uses the highlights underneath the label so lets put ours above... They also have gone to information being the least important part of the service and just playing anything really fast. You used to be able to get to the summary of a show just by selecting it/OK, now if you select if just starts playing whatever episode, then you stop it and try to figure out where your cursor is then try to get to seasons and to shows and by that time I'm swearing at the TV and Hulu for making their service crap. Absolutely worst interface on the planet. Add to that supporting older family members with an interface that's counter-intuitive and wonky and it just creates nightmares. I'm guessing the Hulu jumpers are under 35 yo and who don't mind sucking up 10 minutes of time just to get something you want playing... Sorta how netflix is becoming with rows and rows of Media they want you to watch and you could care less with a just OK search function to try to find something you want to watch...

Seconded on the Hulu interface. We got it on Cyber Monday for $12 for a year. I doubt we'll re-up in the fall though.

I can't stand Netflix search. Drives me nuts. Hate typing stuff in, and then it always misleads you into thinking it has stuff it doesn't.

That said, I imagine most people use Netflix like I do and usually know what they're watching before they even log in. Netflix is still the best value on the market in my opinion. I'm still on the $8.99 grandfathered plan and their original content has gotten so much better over the years it's just crazy.

We did the same thing - it was basically free. But we also have YouTubeTV so it's pretty redundant. I don't really use it other than to watch Teen Titans Go on demand with my kids.

Ok, Narrowed it down between Hulu and You Tube TV based on my viewing preferences. Any "extra" arguments for one over the other? I see Hulu is going to raise their rates and be $5 more than You Tube on Friday so leaning You Tube TV right now.

I've had YouTube TV the last couple months and it's been good for me. No extra charges for DVR service (with no DVR limitations) and it's almost complete as far as sports channel offerings, the only missing one being NFL Network which I don't mind so much because I would only watch that channel for NFL draft coverage. Looks like Hulu is missing both NFL Network and MLB Network. I love MLB Network, YouTube TV has it and that was a big factor in choosing YouTube TV as well.

I HATE Hulu. Always glitches, delay can be bad, always freezing....I would never recommend it. I do not kid you, it makes me made daily. Never a good day with Hulu.
