Note that "Fiber To The Home" (FTTH) or "Fiber To The Premises" (FTTP) really does put a twisted pair optical fiber line into the home. The above scenario, fiber to a neighborhood box and then coax cable from there, would be a situation where an upgrade was done but not all the way to FTTH, to be able to re-use the last mile of coax. It's really a sunk cost problem, at least if the houses are close enough for passive optical, since in that case new FTTP would not cost more than new coax.

Hulu is cool but there seem to be more buffering issues than with SlingTV on a Roku. Hulu's interface is furthest from traditional TV (although there is a "Networks" option). On Saturdays you just click over to the heading "College Football" and click down the list and pick a game. You have to go out of your way to figure out what channel you are on! The Hulu web browser interface is also pretty slick. I do think Sling TV has better video quality than Hulu.

Sling TV is still my favorite interface on Roku, but Hulu is pretty nice save the buffering (which Sling also has at times).

FUBO was a limited interface and I don't remember much about PS Vue but Direct TV Now was way too slow for me.
