    Looks like the new Roku Ultra isn't shipping until Oct 13th. https://www.roku.com/products/players

    Amazon firesticks (new version) are a good choice as well for a streaming device.

    $30, but it's just 10GB up and 30GB down

    $60 for Gigabit. But that's closer to the cities.

    I pay $80 a month for mediacom. For how much it is out, doesn’t really matter what speeds.

    I also have Dish - so, been missing the Twins and now B1G. I’ve asked to get out of my contract twice already. Guess I’ll try again.

    I would. Your agreement was with Fox Sports and the B1G. They aren't providing, so I would think you have a little ammunition. However, what does all the fine print say?

    After a lot of research I went with YouTube TV and Apple TV (Roku Ultra was runner up). For sports, you’ll want the fastest unit, which rules out everything else, except maybe the Playstation, which I didn’t test. Sports look best at 60 frames per second (fps) and not all streaming services do this. Also both Apple TV and Roku Ultra can handle the high frame rate at 4K definition. Since I have an iPhone, selecting Apple over Roku was an easy decision.

    We now have 3 Apple TVs (family room, kitchen and master bedroom). One is using ethernet and two Wi-Fi. We often use all three at the same time without any noticeable performance degradation. We are fortunate to have fiber optic cables internet with 150 mbps up and down for only $50 month (Frontier).

    That's the best part with the streaming services. No contract. Cancel whenever you want.

    Drop DISH if you have it. It's been rated the worst company in America to work for several different years in the past decade. They fired a quadriplegic dude for smoking weed legally in Colorado. Their UI is horrendous. I once was offered a job with the company and their offer was less than 1/2 what other companies were willing to offer me. You get what they are willing to pay for. Anything but DISH.

    ...and this will cycle through all the providers year after year and eventually it will hit you. This isn't a Dish thing or a Sling thing. It is this year.

    You're right. The battle for money between networks and distributors is getting more and more contentious. Networks make these deals to pay huge dollars to NFL, B1G, Big Bang Theory, etc, and then demand $$$ from the distributors, who are starting to balk and not pay. Networks threaten to withhold their big sporting events as leverage (try to black out NBC during the Olympics, or ABC on New Years Day for example). Carriage agreements come up for renewal about every 3-5 years and the negotiations are getting worse, leading to more black outs. DBS is going to be gone in the not too distant future and programming is going to be via OTT. We switched to Hulu a year or so ago and have been happy with it.

    Attention: If the above comment sounds puzzling, adjust your sarcasm setting and try again.
