Butch, go for it. We talked about dumping Dish for 6-months and finally took the plunge in 2017. There was some adjustment to be made. It does change how you watch TV.
We have Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, DirecTV Now, CBS and PBS Passport. For local stations we put an antenna on the old Dish mounting pole and itís connected to a Tablo device that is a guide, DVR and it streams to a Roku App. We probably have too many services. We rarely watch some of these options.
The $40 antenna we got at Walmart. It was super easy to install and even though we live 20-miles north of San Antonio it brings in 40+ channels in HD.
We do watch less mindless TV, itís not on in the background any more. We actively search for shows worth watching and specifically sit down and watch them. Lots of PBS Shows and Netflix and Amazon originals.
Weíd never go back. Itís much better this way.
