Hulu (ad version), Disney+, and ESPN+ for $12.99 a month. If you were already paying for some of those services, tying them altogether should save you a little money.

Good to know. Thanks. I believe this is the key to streaming. Companies are starting to work to bundle some things and just keeping an eye out for them is a good way to save money. Of course that takes a little work and a lot of people don't like to do that.

I currently get Hulu and Spotify for $10 bundled. Will have to do a little math to see if I switched how that would turn out. Spotify Premium is $10 a month all by itself so the bundle basically means I'm getting one of them free.


If you are just using espn+ for football and basketball it will probably be cheaper (long term) to get espn+ as a stand alone. You would only need it for Sept- Feb, 6 months. Or 7 at the most, a total of $35

But by March Middle's basketball season probably been over for 3 to 4 weeks so
$30 at the most Rimshot

That's not true. You need it for ESPN3 (360).

clt says plus means additional. You get additional content with cable or directv

This shtick is really getting old.
I don't post much around here except for football, but yea I'm annoyed after a week of scanning through thread.. clt needs to meet a girl or guy, whatever the preference, smoke a cigar, drink whiskey, something...

I agree but at the risk of him/her having some mental issues to work out or is maybe just lonely I say hang in there and troll if you need to until you get things worked out.

It's too much work trying to find games on TV anymore. Heck you have streaming channels / apps, Facebook streams and Twitter streams. I'm tired of fooling with it. I just go to the home games and what I can't easily find I listen to on the radio. The heck with it.

It's really not that much work if you're a competent person who has internet and a TV w/ an HDMI port. You've got you're linear TV (ESPN/2/U/NEWS/NFL NETWORK/CBS Sports Network/FS1/ABC/FOX/CBS/NBC etc.) and then you've got:

ESPN3 = streaming but generally only available if you've already got a linear TV subscription with a television provider. Having ESPN/2/U/NEWS and therefor ESPN3 does NOT give you ESPN+ content.
ESPN+ = stand alone streaming subscription. Having ESPN+ does NOT give you ESPN3 or any of ESPN's linear TV content.
Stadium = free on Stadiums website (watchstadium.com)
Stadium on Facebook = free on Facebook
CBS Sports Network on Facebook = free streaming on Facebook. This isn't to be confused with regular CBS Sports Network on linear TV.

All of these viewing options are only separated by just a few clicks on your tv remote and your firestick/roku/apple-tv etc. remote. It's really not that much work at all. There's a reason why most TV's built today are smart TV's.

Uh I've been in IT for 30 years, I know how it all works. 07-coffee3

Then you'd know it's really not that much work trying to find the games as you're claiming it is... 07-coffee3

And the key phrase you said it yourself.. "trying to find the games". It's so much easier to listen on the radio, its always the same station. Plus it's free and I don't have to download, install, password, credit card number, verify my device. Not to mention the crappy UIs these apps have LOL.

plus are a system of numbers that uniquely identify bulk produce sold in grocery stores and supermarkets.

Eh, semantics. Bottom line is, if you're a competent person, watching CUSA football on TV is incredibly easy.

I don't post much around here except for football, but yea I'm annoyed after a week of scanning through thread.. clt needs to meet a girl or guy, whatever the preference, smoke a cigar, drink whiskey, something...

He should be banned, or at least warned. None of it is cute. Lame.

Yea but your mascot is a red snot rag, so there's that 03-lmfao

I'm sure if I knew who CLT was to begin with, the ghost joke might be ok..

Everytime I see him post I think of this:
