I'm curious here. What devices?
I stream with Hulu. Have done it in the past on YouTube tv and Vue when it existed. I’ve streamed it on pretty much any device I can think of so far but mostly to tv. Also used espn’s streaming platform a lot over the years.
Have you used any IPTV services?
I stream on Hulu with a Firestick. Rarely use my iPhone or iPad.
How much is that now, 65 a month?
I’ve used eternal tv iptv for years. Love it
What is IPTV?
Internet Protocol TV
Internet Protocol television is the delivery of television content over Internet Protocol networks. This is in contrast to delivery through traditional terrestrial, satellite, and cable television formats. Unlike downloaded media, IPTV offers the ability to stream the source media continuously.

Through whom? And if you don't mind, how much?
No more cable bill, sort of. This is a lot like the Ma Bell breakup from 20 years ago; a lot of options are becoming available. What's interesting to me is how the prices change depending on server location. I'm hoping to deal with a few groups out of Asia (talking with a group out of Vietnam now.) When the beta version was launched we ran close to 200 US channels, over 200 sports channels, News, Music, PPV, etc...all in one package that we were going to retail at 40-50 bucks. I'd have to look but I believe there were 10K+ movies in the library.
Problem: It's not compatible with Windows so that eliminates a lot. However, I'm talking with a group that has a system that is compatible with Windows.
IF this works out it's a way to support the site without asking for money or having tha told "contributor" title. Members will still get their TV and @KyleK won't have to dig into his pocket every month.
FWIW the same thing applies to Internet access and mobile phones. (Xfinity and Verizon)
