The best deal is Verizon's Custom TV package. There are six packages to choose, each only cost you $60 a month. For sports fans, you should choose "Sports & News" package. It includes all ESPN, even ESPN-News, ESPN-U.

RE: I Just Cancelled ESPN
This what I pay, tax included:

Spectrum internet: $52.65
YouTube TV: $37.49
Netflix: $10.90
Hulu: Free (included in my Sprint plan)
Amazon: Free (I have Prime).

All of that for less than $100.

I was paying over $150 when I had Time Warner cable/internet. I ditched cable for DirecTV but i was still paying over $140 for AT&T internet and satellite.

With YouTube TV I get all the ESPN channels, FS1-2/Southwest, CBS Sports, NBC Sports, BTN, SEC, Olympic channel, MLB, NBA, Golf and Tennis channels. I had Sling before but YouTube is better plus it has unlimited recording.

Sling costs $40/mo. That provides the ESPN stations, including ACC Network Extra.

That allows me to watch ND basketball and baseball games and most ND away football games.

I have Amazon Fire Sticks on all of our TV's. WatchESPN is an app on there. So is NBC Sports, which allows me to watch ND home hockey games.

I get NBC with an OTA antenna. That allows me to watch ND home football games.

I have Netflix. So, $40 for Sling and $10 for Netflix. Done.

That is all the television access that I need.

you should check out Youtube TV Terry. Unless you want NFL network you get more sports bang for your buck with the $40 You Tube TV package v the $40 Sling Orange/Blue Package.

I would, but I think it does not offer ACC Network Extra. So, that kills that deal.

It does, just through the WatchESPN app instead on being integrated into the TV app like Sling has it set up. So if a ND game was on ACC extra just use WatchESPN channel instead of YouTube TV channel

I hope Fuhrer Mickey gets obliterated for a number of reasons including their bottomless greed and perversion of copyright law. But I hope that happens just before the ACC GOR expires.

Love this post. I want espn to fail as everyone on here knows. I do want it to fail much much quicker than 3036 though...I’m rooting for 2020, after the AAC has moved on.

Good luck with that.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/...ly-into-it

With almost 90 million homes still getting ESPN, that adds up to $7.8 billion per year. Sister channel ESPN2 chips in an additional billion, and that’s all before ad revenue (roughly $2.6 billion a year, according to Kagan) and revenue from the print magazine and website, which is the most trafficked in sports. Last year, Disney’s cable networks brought in $16.6 billion in revenue and $6.7 billion in operating profit—43 percent of Disney’s total and more than its theme parks and movie studios combined.


ESPN is never going away. This is a partial list of what they are in and the dollars invested:

National Football League/Monday Night Football
Annual cost: $1.9 billion
Term: 2014–21

National Basketball Association
Annual cost: $1.4 billion
Term: 2016–25

Major League Baseball
Annual cost: $700 million
Term: 2014–21

College Football Playoffs & Bowl Games
Annual cost: $608 million
Term: 2015–26

Southeastern Conference
Annual cost: $300 million
Term: 2014–34

Atlantic Coast Conference
Annual cost: $240 million
Term: 2012–27

I like sports and ESPN is in almost every sport. I think it is pointless trying to cut out ESPN. Because a game might be on a different sports channel, my package from Spectrum cable has all ESPN channels and every other sports channel available, including the PAC-12, Dodgers and Lakers.

Cancel ESPN ? Shoot, I cancelled my TV period a few years ago. Picked it up and threw it in the trash. My mental health instantly improved.

Cool. My daughter and son-in-law have YouTube TV and swear by it, so I will try the free trial and check it out.

RE: I Just Cancelled ESPN
We use Playstation Vue. Tried Sling but it it didnt have the channels that my wife likes to watch. You do not need a PS to use this service. All you need is a PS3 or 4, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Android TV, iOS Devices, Android devies or Chromecast.

The 39.99/mo package gets you 47 channels including live local NBC, CBS and Fox. Sports channels included are ESPN, ESPN2, FS1, FS2 and NBCSN.

For $5 more per month you get around 70 channels. Includes BTN, CBS Sports, ESPN 1, 2, U and News, Local Fox sports, FS1 and 2, Golf, MLB TV, NBCSN, NFL Network, Olympic Channel and SEC Network.
