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,F##k you 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.

Do or do not, there is no may.

Lots of people mad at their cable/ satellite. Keep paying and they don't learn. They don't really mind if you're mad at them.

Can you get those games OTA?

You can blame the players. All costs roll downhill including those who rebroadcast the games. How do you think those multi-million dollar salaries get paid for?

Said F U to them a few months ago OTA and Sling now couldn’t be happier. I was Direct T.V. Customer since 1998 sad they said they wouldn’t cut a deal.

No over the air.
At&t owns direct T.V. and the sports station that broadcasts the games.
We are trapped.

Does that mean you have a ROKU player? If so they also have Direct TV.

"They don't really mind if you're mad at them." exactly, as long as those checks keep cashing they do not mind or care and they will continue with poor customer service and raise the rates like clockwork as long as people keep paying. Dumped cable bills almost 20 years ago and no longer have tv at all and quite frankly do not miss it. AM radio (1110 Kfab) is good enough for me.

I called and cancelled direcTV because they wouldn't give me any more discounts. Was switching to PS Vue or DTVNOW. I cancelled, an hour later they called and gave me the middle package DTV for $25/month. Couldn't beat that so I still have them but I'm prepared to do the same next fall when my year is up.

I had Comcast and left on bad terms.
All cable and satellite services will die soon.
Streaming is the future.

Only when the wireless can handle heavy duty streaming at a decent cost. In my area you have a choice of high speed Internet-Either Comcast or Comcast......
