    3 years for $150 million

    What a joke. Enough already with the damn streams.

    Let's see if Netflix can make the gameday experience worse than Amazon.

    KC at Pittsburgh followed by Baltimore at Houston, two pretty good games.

    Just as long as the NFL broadcast deals continue to include the local market broadcast, Firestick is the way to go.

    You might get lag or broken stream here and there but there are usually one or two other local affiliates you can switch over to. I was able to get every game last season at no cost, besides my internet, which I would have anyway.

    Just have to buy the Firestick and have someone jailbreak it, or do it yourself. There are DIY guides all over the intrwebs.

    That's probably the way to go. I guarantee a Neflix rate hike or two in the next 6 months.

    That might be 5180, but whatever.

    For the movies I seem to have to go through a few different streams to find a good one, but for the local stations it's pretty good, only a few times during last season did I need to switch to another.
    Found a good stream for Godzilla x Kong last night, good stream, terrible movie.

    The delay is so brutal with this though. Some streams are legit 60 second plus. It makes watching live sports very difficult

    That can be so, but I've found in my case that it really does depend on the strength of our internet connection. We have a hang out space that is right next to our router and I swear I very rarely have an issue.

    I get it why no one would ever want to put up with that stuttering, buffering crap (myself included), but truthfully, it's been Easy Street. I get extra special enjoyment sticking it to Jim Dolan/MSG. Let's Go Rangers! I'm getting nervous, btw. OK, I'm officially nervous.

    I don't really have an issue with the stuttering or buffering. It's just that the actual game itself is on delay from what would be actual cable or Fios. For example - I have verizon fios right now and I can put redzone on my main tv but the second tv I use the firestick with the IPTV hack and it's a legit 55 seconds behind. Impossible to scroll twitter or sports bet live when it has such a delay.


    PS - Rangers win 3-1 to night. Book it

    Got it. The delay part isn't an issue for me, but I fully understand why it can be a deal breaker for others. I can't justify shelling out that kind of money when I can watch for nothing, but that is 100% based on what one's priorities are. If you can afford it and you're getting what you want all the power to you. I can afford it, I just fckn refuse, lol.

    The Rangers, I was crapping pineapples. My inner Jets fan was defaulting to watch this shit go to a Game 7 at home with bad result. I'm so relieved!!!
