Why don't A-10 teams publish that number of games?
1974? That is...really arbitrary. I get not including channels that require a cable subscription, but Fox has the Super Bowl every 4th year.

Youre right, I thought they came with + but they actually dont. When/If ESPN is able to do that, they will make a ton of cash. If you still have a cable or satelite provider, you are not doing it right. Get a cheap streaming package and you can get access to ESPN..etc. I pay 49.99/month for mine and then I bought ESPN+, HBO for a total of 70 per month. I was paying $130 for DirecTV a year ago.

How much do you pay for internet and what type of speeds to you get?

Also, are there any taxes and/or fees added to that $49.99/month? That is really where cable packages get you.

I have my internet through Spectrum (barf). Right now I pay $45/month because we moved and I had my wife sign up to get the 1 year new customer rate. Next year I will jump to about $60/month. I usually get around 100mbps. I have rarely had issues with streaming.


I use PS Vue for my streaming. There is nothing added to that 49.99.

I was looking at DirecTV Now, but basic has no CBS Sports Net, which of course has two of our biggest games at VCU and UD. The bigger package is basically another $20 just for me to get that channel as I couldn't care less about the other additions.

Which streaming service do you have? I really want one where NBCSN and CBSSN are on the most basic tier.

I use Playstation Vue and have the Core package. YouTube TV has a nice offering too because it has all the local channels (Vue does not have CBS in my area). I have an antenna to pick up all the local channels. There are 5-6 options out there and I bet you can find one that suits your needs.

This is the reason that I still have Verizon Fios. Streaming services do not have an option for some channels unless you have a cable provider. One day I will cut the cord but I want to make sure that I get all of my sports options. I am happy with my service except for the cost of course. My TV has lots of APPs on it so I am getting closer and closer to making the change. It is crazy how much I spend because I already pay for stuff like Netflix, ESPN+, Amazon Prime, etc on top of my cable bill.

Re: The 2019-20 A10 Schedules

We are getting way off topic, but here’s a good article on the cord cutting:

Fubo appears to be the best option for sports from what I gathered.

Edit: Except no espn, so scratch that.

You can login to most 3rd party apps with your streaming provider account. I think the only outliers were Nickelodeon/Comedy Central for me. I made a spreadsheet of all the channels I wanted and which ones I had to have. I was able to find a package that satisfied my and my family needs. It was funny how I said "oh I like that channel" but then when I figured it would cost me $15 a month more, I thought ehh do I really like it that much?

I did something similar. Turns out I didn't like any of them that much and currently pay $0.

Re: The 2019-20 A10 Schedules

Another thing to consider is that these services don't have contracts so you can subscribe just during basketball season if you want to. That leaves 7 months out of the year that you're not paying for it. Also, a lot of the platforms like Sling, Vue, etc. have free 7-day trials, so if it works out that your team is only on a particular network a few times, you can match those up and not have to commit to it.

I was 10 and started watching sports. Or at least paying attention to them...
