    1190...the Grim Reaper of radio!
    Check out KXEN, 1010.
    I miss being AM in the PM.
    When going to broadcast TV get the best antenna you can afford. The ones that say they are good for 30 miles aren't and so on and so on.

      Roku now supports Rumble as many conservatives have had to switch to after being kicked off You tube. Rumble is making some good changes to get better.

      Spectrum, it rhymes with rectum! Their bundle just helps them extract more money every month. They suck bad, their price just keeps going up, just like WA state gas taxes.

      I called spectrum About the raise in rates and got no sympathy. So when I called to cancel then they wanted to give deals and make adjustments. Too late I told them, I already signed up with another cable provider.

        sorry
        I'm not all that up on all the other options
        probably someone in the younger crowd could help more

        My 85 y/o father lives with me & he loves his cable, when he's awake
        I can't cut the proverbial cord "yet"
        I'd have an insurrection on my hands :poke:
        he can barely use a TV remote, let alone some other hi-Tech stuff
        too stubborn to learn too :(

        1st I'd say trust & verify before signing up for anything

        I do know most of that I listed,
        I noted above are the extreme/bias media sources
        anti-constitutionalist anti-free speech huge monopolies
        or big tech owns/'ed by them
        especially the Alphabet media Group, look it up

        good luck, sorry not much help

            I have Netflix and the programming sucks more and more each month. You look in the category for 80's movies and it lists half foreign movies that are dubbed. You get a couple decent movies and a shitload of Series shows. If it wasn't for the DVDs I would drop them.

            I just dropped ATT that I had for everything (Cell, home phone, TV and internet)have three boys and the wife with Cell phones so all together was almost 600.00 a month. Went to T-mobile for the phones all 5 are 140.00, internet (earthlink) 65.00, YouTube TV has most all channels I watch 65.00. I already have Amazon Prime which I like but love watching Supercross and the wife likes some other channels so trying the YouTube TV Plus it has 6 users for all the kids to record what they want.

            No TV since 1997. Do it & don't look back. It's much better to search for information than to have it fed to you.

                I had around 40 channels with the free digital signal when I lived in Maryland. Then I moved here and could only get about three and they were in and out. Doing a little research I found that there is a online map of where the signals are for your area. I'm definitely in a "hole" from where I lived before.

                Check this out before spending money on any antennas. They won't do you any good if you're in a bad area. The government passed a bill that all broadcasters have to broadcast a digital signal through the air but it doesn't say where it has to direct the signal.

                  My Mother-In-Law binge watches the Hallmark channel. I would rather clamp my nuts with a vice-grip. :lol:

                    LOL.. I agree but the wife loves Christmas and still goes crazy decorating the entire house..We have boxes and boxes of decorations and she even got rid of a lot... So a few years back I walk in the house and she is watching Christmas at Hallmark that feels like it starts in October and I say look at that Christmas tree on a TV and she tells me all the Christmas trees on Hallmark are Balsam Hill brand
                    So me being the big sport I am tell her im going to get you one of those trees to replace our old one......That F-ing tree was well over 500 dollars but she was happy and it got me one get out of jail card
