His point was that the HSI carrier is irrelevant in a world of IPTV, and Tivo can choose to play in that space or not when their DVRs stop working.The problem is Spectrum is a monopoly.
Tivo will do whatever Tivo thinks is best for the continued success of Tivo. Spectrum does whatever it wants.
The big problem with sports streaming, if you go with individual streamers, is that they don't keep the streams for later viewing if you can't/won't watch live (because of commercials etc.). This is the main reason why some sports fans will stick with Tivo or something like YTTV that has a DVR feature, because we don't watch most sports live.What kind of content from your local channels do you really want that you can't get via one streaming app or another? ABC and Fox shows are on Hulu next-day. NBC shows are on Peacock Premium next-day, while their live sports and SNL stream live. CBS shows are next-day on Paramount+, with sports (including NFL) streaming live. You can even live stream the full local CBS station if you're on their ad-free plan. PBS shows stream same-time in the free PBS app and most local PBS stations live stream in it too. CW shows are next-day (with ads) in the free CW app. Main thing you'd be missing would be the live sports that Fox airs, including Sunday NFL games.
If I'm forced to watch the AMZ games live I won't watch, because I'm not going to sit through the commercials. If they let me chase watch and skip then I might watch some of them. I'm hoping they will be available to watch after they finish, but I doubt it.Good point. But are you saying that if watching Thursday Night Football live is your only choice, then you won't even bother to turn it on at all?
