Question for you tech savvy guys about internet providers

Recommended Posts

I’m looking to ditch my $190 xfinity bill and go with just an internet provider and get a fire stick or other live streaming device, I’m not the least bit tech savvy and all this stuff is over my head. Basically I’m looking for a cheap internet provider and something I can watch hunting shows on and leave animal planet on all day for the dogs. From what I understand I can get a fire stick and a streaming service like gear tv for low monthly payments and pretty much have all the channels I do now with cable. The previous owners of the new house had fios and all the equipment is still installed so I’m thinking going that route. Any recommendations on a cheap internet provider and live streaming service? I’m hoping to cut my comcast bill in half, I can’t justify paying $190 a month for tv let alone the tv stays on the same 3 channels, outdoor network, sportsman and animal planet. Any info is appreciated

My parents got Fios to save money that Verizon used to charge.
Verizon was the best and expensive and Fios has almost no signal , but money way saved?
You need a good signal to stream.

Well I have Optimum but the Amazon Prime TV is useless almost without a cable subscription. I only have internet and tried watching History/Discovery/Animal Planet etc etc and it wouldn't let me sign in to watch the live TV and other shows. I use my brothers Fios password since he has cable still. It works just fine with that.

See my thread on this: 

 We currently have CenturyLink DSL which is good for 10Mbps up and 1Mbps down.  That is fine for us because we hardly ever have more than one TV going at once.  If we do one TV will be pulling down an OTA (over-the-air) signal and one will be streaming (kids shows, etc...)  I have three TVs so I need three Amazon Fire TV sticks, and I'll be using an Amazon Fire Recast to integrate the streaming content with the OTA content.  I'm also going to need an antenna and some assorted wiring, etc...  All told it will be a one-time $500 investment in equipment, but it will mean that I can just pay $45 a month for internet service and nothing else.  Depending on what you want to stream and how many devices you'll have going at once you may need higher speeds.

The best way to ditch a $190 xfinity bill is to switch to FIOS under one of their advertisements for the triple play. Then when that rate goes up, switch back to xfinity for their currently advertised triple play rate. IMO (in my area) FIOS blows xfinity out of the water for internet, no comparison.

When you pay for just internet or a double play they jack the rates up and for a bit more you could have all 3 services. Don't be afraid to haggle with them on the phone.

Love my FireTv. Especially since I will never pay to see these spoiled liberal actors and love seeing movies for free.
