    I use AT&T TV NOW ... not exactly the cheapest option, but the channel mix is pretty solid.

    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    If this is somehow against community guidelines, mods feel free to remove this post.

    This is how I generally watch Reds baseball.

    Since there are no teams on the moon, I guess South Korea's far enough from Cincinnati to satisfy me.

    Re: YouTube TV dropping Fox Sports regional networks

    The fate of the regional Fox sports had been up in the air since the Disney acquisition.


    "Disney is buying a huge chunk of 21st Century Fox in a deal that promises to reshape the media industry and help the entertainment giant fend off digital rivals such as Netflix.

    The $52.4 billion deal will combine two of the biggest players in Hollywood."

    The sale represents a remarkable turn in the career of octogenarian mogul Rupert Murdoch, who is cashing out after building a major media empire. For its part, Disney (DIS) is adding even more prime entertainment assets to an already swollen portfolio as it battles upstart streaming services that have undercut the traditional cable subscription model.

    In addition to 21st Century Fox's movie studio and regional sports networks, Disney is buying cable channels FX and National Geographic. Disney will also get Fox's stakes in Hulu and European pay-TV provider Sky (SKYAY)."

    That's my current plan, as well. Hopefully another option or two comes about between now and 3/26.

    It always comes back to that greedy <bleeping> mouse.

    Damn. I just moved from PS Vue to Youtube TV too. Granted I'm out of market for the Reds, but it really screws up watching all the Ohio sports I am in network for.

    I believe the Fox Regional Sports Networks were sold off to Sinclair when the Disney-Fox merger went through. So in this case, it's not Disney trying to screw you, it's Sinclair. They yanked the Fox Regional Networks from Sling too. One could almost wonder what interest they have in particular cable companies/services. I have to wonder if it's only a matter of time before they yank the Regional Sports Networks from Hulu TV as well (unless they have a vested interest in Hulu).

    Yeah. I want to watch the rest of Better Call Saul so I might keep it until the end of April and then get Hulu Live.
