I'm 92 and can stream. Streaming is easy with a Roku TV set. I have been streaming Netflix, Prime Video, Paramount+, Acorn, HBO Max and PBS Passport. I also switched from cable to YouTube TV a month ago and am happy with the results and the big $ savings.

I've been working with computers since the late 50's but I would still have to search Google to figure out what a plex server is and how to set it up.
I'm sure is easy if you have a reliable ISP ...

Not everyone has a reliable ISP ...

Wish more areas had FTTH fiber broadband

Agree streaming has a huge delay . Imaging getting a fantasy alert before seeing it on TV or for people that do sports betting stuff


Heck sometimes RZC is ahead of OTA

When u get PTSD from this horific service then manbye you will understand where I'm coming from . When your employer pretty much banns people frome working at home due to how unreliable the ISP is then u understand my pain .

Until then U DONT UNDERSTAND MY PAIN, DONT REPLY TO MY POSTS !!

I know right, we are simply trying to say streaming stuff will not work for everyone

yeah and force people to buy more equipment spend more money. It’s crazy.
Or have 15 different login(s) like what MLB is doing (peacock, apple, MLB, TV provider, prime ... )

Crazy

Yes its an issue every time I attempt to use fox sports app I have to re authentic. So have to go (name of app).activate.com or some random site, choose D* as my provider .Then enter the random characters. Evey single time ... super annoying


Fox sports , espn and other apps all the time

There's a fox 4k game tomorrow, guess what I'll be doing in an hour when the internet comes back ... re authenticating...


Stteaming is annoying so much easier to press 703 or a channel number than choose between multiple apps and remembering 15 different logins ... when the internet works ..

Can we agree not all areas have FTTH fiber broadband, I wouldn't be complaining if I had a choice of broadband


Unfortunately I'm in a part of va beach where docsis is my only option, no tmobile no vzw 5g or LTE home broadband option ... im stuck paying $120 for trash service . In 2 years LUMOS fiber should be here! But thats 2 more years of suffering from docsis

Amazon fire stick 4k

It's hard wired ethernet

I have a home run line from the outside "TAP" to a D3.1 modem then going to a netgear router . They have re ran the line from the pedestal to the tap 3x same garbage service

The Amazon fire stick is hard wired cat 6. (Everything hard wired except cell phones) definitely not my inside wire definitely the ISP ...

I have (gig-a-trash ) speed ..but get no where near that speed

Are u done ... I'm tired of explaining my ISP is trash and streaming is not for everyone...
