The cord has been cut.

Post by Pete » Sat Mar 14, 2020 11:36 am

Internet only, streaming services.

On the little TV I watch most of the time, I have a Firestick with Kodi and IP Vanish so I can get some pirate chit.

Also, in the same little TV I have an over-the-air antenna for local channels

So far so good. Saving about $70/mo

I wanted better OTA channels, so I mounted the "Antennas Direct Clearstream 4V antenna" and 25' of quality RG6 coax cabletoday and its great. I receive 63+ over-the-air channels. A number of them are obviously junk ie shopping channels et al, but lots are good channels. I mounted it about 15' high, but I recommend mounting as high as you can. Im not as daring as I was 40 years ago lol. DO NOT simply use any old coax cable laying around. Use qualty RG6.

I stopped watching TV in 2001 when I realized the MSM was selling Dubya's war in the Middle East. The media's job is to expose government crimes so I went internet only and never looked back. The internet community is a lot of fun. We belong to the family of pachyderms. Aibafs only has a few navel-retentive snowflakes.

You replaced a poor source of information, with an awful source of information.
A source that isn't even fact checked.

I replaced government propaganda with investigative journalism. You can lead a Brit to reality but you can't make him open his eyes.

I'm afraid you are mistaken.
You replaced it with pseudoscience.

Lots of claims, none of it verifiable.
No fact checking, no peer reviews, and when someone like me comes along who does know the facts.
Well, their claims do not stand up to scrutiny.
