Wondering how many others have made the move away from cable or satellite. I just compared the cost of YouTubeTV and Philo (for all my Discovery, Food Network, etc channels) to Comcast and the savings is around $50 a month.

The only real drawback I see is having to switch between apps but it’s really not that big of a deal on the Roku. There are also no more contracts, to me this seems like the smart move, just wondering what other’s experiences are.

I get tons more channels, the flexibility of subscribing to channels when I want to and no dusty, tax laden rental boxes. Switched 3 years ago and never looked back. Hulu live tv is expensive but soo much better than my former cable service. Sling TV is good on a budget and, if you're lucky, antennas will be the cheapest way to get local programming. Antennas didn't work well on most of my TVs due to my location.
