As of now, if you want RSN's and don't want traditional cable, this is your only option. The Choice and Ultimate options include HBO Max for 1 year AND NBA League Pass for the 2020-2021 season. I would look into bundling cable/internet though, because this package is very expensive for what you get and there are better options

Not bad! Hopefully Paramount Plus will be a dedicated home for all USMNT and USWNT games in the future.

The deal with FOX/ESPN and Univision for all USMNT and USWNT expires after 2022 MLS Season

MLS pooled their TV rights with USMNT as when this deal was signed back in 2014, MLS rights weren't worth much on their own

ATSC 3.0 Anyone have info on it for OTA? Sounds like you either need a ATSC 3.0 tuner on your TV or you have to get an external box. Thoughts?

If you have a paid 24/7 account you get CBS all access for part of the subscription. I'm hoping it rolls over to Paramount+ Should know tomorrow

I don't have the CBS All Access. The only thing I would have watched on it was live football games, but I took the Reddit streams route. Maybe Paramount Plus has enough to draw me in, and if I'm being honest, it'd be the live sports, not the reruns of Big Bang Theory.

Its very early in the lifespan of this new technology.

The first markets are just now going online and while it will allow 4K broadcasts, the big networks aren't broadcasting anything in 4K yet.

If you are buying a new TV and it has ATSC 3.0, awesome, but I wouldnt spend a lot of money on it yet

If you are in a market with ATSC 3.0 and want it now, the best bet is the HD Homerun device as it is fairly affordable.
