Re: A la Carte
The few shows I've bought itunes subscritions for have been on FX and AMC (Mad Men and Sons of Anarchy were high on my list!).

It still comes out less than a cable subscription, but those two channels both have a lot quality content that I don't like having to wait to watch either.

Re: Could Be Good Option
I've tried the digital antenae (and have tried some pretty convuluted set ups that include step ladders, duct tape, and ceiling fans, in an effort to try to find the best place likely to get a signal), but no dice.

I can, however, pick up a pretty decent varieties of Mexican tv channels from the towers down in Tijuanna!  (Unfortunately, none of them show the shows I want to watch either!)

Sling seemed a bit expensive for the amount of content I'm "missing out" on last time I checked, but that was several years ago. I may look into it again!

Hulu Skinny Bundle
Skinny bundles are great. Most customers with the traditional bundles are not happy with them and don't use all of the features. I had to get a cable plan with phone service to lower my monthly bill but I don't use the phone service. I was told by my cable company that was the only option to lower my bill. That is ridiculous.

Companies created the bundles with getting input from customers and then forced the bundles on customers leaving them with no alternative in a so-called effort to save customers money but customers are the real losers as these companies continually increase prices.

Re: more Hulu
We talk a lot about new bundles for streaming, but now Verizon is offering new bundles for phone service. Today it anounced new prepaid plans for smartphones today that even extend to 6GB. 

"Whether you're just starting out with your own wireless plan or simply love to have complete control of your wireless spending, prepaid plans give you the best network on the latest phones," said Rob Miller, vice president of consumer pricing for Verizon. "Prepaid plans from Verizon keep you in control without the worry of overages or hidden fees."

Options include a jump from the 3GB offered under previous plans to 6 GB of data including 1 GB of AutoPay Bonus Data with unlimited talk and text in the U.S. and unlimited text and calling to Mexico and Canada for $60 per month.

Does anyone else offer 6GB? Is there really a need for it now?

Re: Suddenlink
I have tested it @mhhf1ve and view it as a smart move as well.   The question is wide adoption which will be key.

Re: more Hulu
@batye: Your thoughts made me curious in having you comment on Canada and the current state of affairs--and whether you think a viable roadmap exists in Canada today in the quest for Transformation or not.

Re: Suddenlink
I am aware of Kodi @batye.   It is a little powerful open source device that underscores what can be done--but just like anything else, it is the simple admonition I've underscored: Caveat Emptor--Buyer be aware.   There are security vulnerabilities that must be mitigated on a constant and consistent basis.

Re: Suddenlink
I actually have had decent experience with Universal remote controls--especially when I had my AT&T Uverse service in integrating all the key "entertainment" systems within it.   Maybe I am the exception to the rule in this regard.    It goes to the broader question of the art of the possible at the heart of the very transformation we're deliberating.
