Although this is a satellite service, this is a non sports package for $40. Includes 4 receivers and taxes in the price.

OTA antenna is included with the satellite receiver and is installed under the satellite receiver outside the home.

Quite an interesting setup and debated whether or not to include this in the non-sports section in the OP.
I leave it up to you guys if I should.

A couple of non insignificant updates:

First, YouTubeTV is dropping the Sinclair regional sports networks, which is frustrating going into the end of the NBA season and the beginning of baseball season.

Second, AT&T Now has enhanced their service offerings with allowing up to three streaming devices and up to 500 hours of Cloud DVR storage (up to 90 days). Their packages are still high ($65 and $80) but include HBO.

Looks like Fox had the leverage with TV providers to get the price they wanted for the RSNs, but Sinclair does not have that kind of leverage.

YouTube and Sinclair have reached a new deal for all Fox Sports Nets other than YES, Fox Sports Prime Ticket and Fox Sports West.

But only in select markets. So check your zip code, so you signup with a zipcode that covers your team. They aren't using DMA or team footprints.

Completely random in Columbus Ohio you get Fox Sports Ohio or Sports Time Ohio, not both even though one gets NHL Blue Jackets and the other MLS Crew.
