Oh.  Wait.  I have no TV access to the games anymore  :'(


Friggin sucks.  Caps games are the most important reason I even have a TV.  Listening on the radio when I'm out doing something is fine, but when I'm actually at home, I want to be watching the damn games.


FU Dish Network.

I read they (Dish) could not reach an agreement with Regional Sports Network and NBCSN because they (RSN/NBCSN) were not negotiating reasonably and the costs were simply too high for Regional sports
coverage and that the channels were watched by such a small percentage of Dish users.  (yet DirecTV carries these same channels)
That's a load of shit because EVERYONE watches the local sports networks.  I have considered NHL Center Ice packages in the past but they blackout the "local" games which is all I am interested in.
(apparently not true with other providers like DirecTV, etc because THEY can afford to carry these networks)

That'd be no.  We have absolutely no wired internet of any kind available.  Not even DSL.


And I had satellite internet before and it was beyond a joke.  Which I never could understand because I can watch 250 HD channels on Dish or DirecTV (which are satellite) but you can't have any reasonable internet via satellite?


Dish says they are still in negotiations and "cancelling and switching" to another provider allows these rogue networks to just keep raising prices out of control so it's bad for the industry.
But...if you don't offer the programming I want....and DirecTV does...then you lose.


I was going to give it a couple week and see what happens.  I'd really love to just have internet and could live off streaming services for the amount of TV we watch but that's years away in my neck of the woods.


I've tried both DirecTV and Dish over the last couple decades.  I actually prefer DirecTV, but Dish has (for me) had much better service and the costs are much cheaper for relatively same programming.  And DirecTV DVR storage is about 40% of Dish basic versions.

I just got Tmobile's internet 5g service, it's pretty good.  And from what I've read in the forums, it occasionally works out in the boonies.  Line of site, or at least pointing the unit towards the cell towers.  No contracts, unlimited data, totally wireless, crazy speeds where I'm at.  Just ran a speedtest, uploads are a lot faster, normally in the 50s.  60 bucks a month.
look up cellmapper.net, see how close a cell tower is to you.

Rich, you tried tuning the games in on rabbit ears (digital antenna) That is if they even broadcast those channels anymore.

I don't think the local sports teams have been broadcast over the air since hockey and basketball were on channels 50 and 20

And its not like I'm WAY out there.  I'm in Fauquier County and we are WAY behind the techno curve.
I am literally 12 minutes from town, but there is nothing available right where I am.  I have 4g wireless (verizon) but not a great signal.  It's "unlimited" but there is a 10GB limit on hotspotting the phones.  We have 5 (phones) in my family and burn them all up (well I don't, but 3 teenagers do streaming netflix and such)


My previous house in Fauquier was in more of a neighborhood and we had cable (Comcast) so it was great.


I DO have a gun range in my yard where I'm at now though  :)

If you're on android, you can use an app called pdanet, install on the phone and the computer.  It will "hide" your hotspot usage, it makes it think you're on your phone and not tethering to a computer.  I believe there is free trial version.  When my internet goes out, I've used that, once for an entire month.  No extra costs on my phone bill.  I was running the entire home network off of the phone connection.

I think line of site is a problem.  I'm literally in the woods.  Dish only works cause its on the roof and cleared yard around house has enough space to angle above the trees.

Tmobile interactive map shows "limited signal strength" for 5g in my area and "fair signal strength" for 4gLTE when you switch off the 5g filter


I have verizon (4g iPhones) and a cellular hotspot and never have trouble with phone calls, but it's not a great signal


When push comes to shove I can watch live stream at work on my PC, with comcast business cable internet, but I spend way to much time at the office as it is.
Actually I could probably look into a regional sports cable access for the tv (which is never even turned on), but I just have the very basic TV cable package on the work service now because it's bundled with the business cable and phones
