That's right. The Roku is a gateway drug to cord cutting. It's a cheap and easy alternative and traditional TV service.
And what wrong with that? Who makes that call Directv? Who gives a crap about them. They provide something that COST me money. They aren't paying me.
Thats like buying car and finding out your Car insurance doesn't cover that car. What happends then?
Do you base car buying on what your insurance would only cover? Hell No!
Do I base my streaming devices based on what 1 Provider doesn't offer, Nope!
I do what I have to to make it work, I have lots of friends with Cable and Dishnetwork. I get one more Roku, and guess what Directv loses a HBO subscription. No biggy!
