    Absolutely. I remember my grandfather having the first TV in his neighborhood. Great big piece of furniture with I think a 7” screen, all in glorious black & white. We had a choice then of 2 local stations mostly playing the test pattern.

    And cable’s early days had no ‘premium’ channels. Just a better way to get the locals.

    As long as it's 4K with On Demand available. Maybe throw in 3D too.

    Resolution? Where we're going, we don't need resolution.

    Well, time to shift services. I was locked in with Sling Blue/Hulu/CBS as it had what I thought I wanted. But then I decided I wanted the Hollywood and Sports pack and the math changed:

    Sling Blue = $30
    Enhanced DVR = $5
    Hollywood = $5
    Sports = $10
    Hulu no ads = $12
    CBS no ads = $10

    Total : $72

    YouTubeTV = $50
    Hulu no ads = $12
    Cancel CBS = $0. Was mostly keeping for Picard, now its over or will be by the time my month is out.

    Total = $62

    So switched to YTTV. Picked up local channels, ESPN and others. Lost Paramount, but that only has one show I want. I’ll get that via season pass when the new season starts.

    I remember when there was only one OTA station in Philadelphia and it was on weeknights and weekend afternoons and evenings. That was 1948. No need for a remote to change stations!

    Go to their web site, under your account, change playback settings. You have to do this for each profile. netflix-disable-auto-playing-previews.png

    Those boxes are both unchecked for my profile. It has no effect on the issue. It prevents previews from playing while you are browsing for something to watch, but an episode of a show will still start to play when you pull up the episode in your list. Very annoying.
