up until now i've been happy with the service.
Last Rockies baseball season I could upgrade my service 1 level and get the station that broadcasts the Rockies.
Now this season the Rockies station is only available on the most expensive package.
What happened?
Oh yeah AT&T bought Direct T.V. and the station that broadcasts the Rockies.
So now to watch the Rockies on Direct T.V. I have to pay $157 a month plus some fees, [removed] Direct T.V.
I May cancel the service.
I have great over the air reception plus I have Netflix,Prime video and Hulu all free.

Direct TV is certainly not cheap. You get hundreds of channels most of which you will never watch for around $100. Some promo packages, but once they end it's big $$.

Cut the cord.

I cut the cord when my cable bill hit ~$100/mo. Went OTA and streaming via Roku & smart TVs. Don't miss cable one bit, and it's nice to have $1200 more per year to spend on something worth spending the money on.

I've gone without pay TV for seven years now. It's nice to be able to spend that $1000 a year for something else.

How are you getting Netflix, Prime Video, and Hulu all free? I thought those were subscription based services also with a monthly or annual fee.

You can get all-3 free, if you have friends or relatives having a paid subcription to them. I have all-3 free.
However, I still have WOW Cable, only because my wife won't allow dismissal of it. I can live without cable or satellite TV. But she can't (so she says).

I cannot cut the cord, for if I do, she may cut housecleaning and cooking....lol smirk
