    Also OTA broadcast tv is great, I get about 50 hd channels over the air. Tonight I watch US vs Costa Rica on Univision over the air.

    Picture quality is so much better than what cable/satellite/streaming offer.

    I know, I used to tell people this all the time but its like they dont care or dont believe it. Signal is not compressed so the quality is true hd.

    The only think I ever watch on OTA is CBS when LSU in on it. The quality is so good that you can see all of Verne's chins very clearly

    I also notice the pigment of his skin. I guess if anybody is going to play his part in a made for tv movie, should be Kevin Bacon. My apologies for hogging the thread.

    Sort of like Palladia, the HD quality was always a few steps above

    It's official. My U-Verse just shut off. I ordered an official subscription of Sony Vue (was on 7 day free trial before) and to my extreme delight, there are absolutely no fees/taxes for the service. It was exactly $34.99, making it that much better a value. Cable providers typically charge 17 to 20 percent fees/taxes, which is really outrageous. Looks like I'll be paying about $72 final price a month for Cable and internet.

    The best part of having Vue for me is knowing that Cox is getting less of my money. I look forward to the day Google drops Fiber into the neighborhood.

    Question about prime before I pull the trigger...

    Does the music allow you to save and play offline, similar to spotify?
