The Antenna Blowing Down Probably Was The Best Thing That Happened to My TV Viewing
As we were planning living here permanently we had the landline and intratubes hooked up already. At that time we still had cable in Hot-Lanta so I was able to watch TV shows online thru the cable website and we had Netflix. I also had checked out Hulu(Hulu has shows from ABC, NBC, and Fox, but not CBS. I get CBS shows from their website.) when I heard about it about a year before. So I had many more options after the antenna blew down than I did with the antenna. The only thing I missed was some of the live stuff like NFL football and NASCAR.( Altho, with only those channels available, I wouldn't have been able to watch NFL football or NASCAR anyway, other than a couple races later in the year on ABC.) Then last Fall heard about a site that does sports and was able to watch some football and NBC would live-stream their Sunday Night Football, including the Super Bowl.
Also missed watching the local news on TV. Then again, I haven't been able to get local news since the switch to digital. The station I used to watch for news hasn't come in since the switch and the one that I was able to get had shitty local news.
The biggest trouble with using these sites to watch NASCAR is that they would get shut down by the network and I would have to find another link. Usually there is another link readily available, but some times I have to wait awhile before I can find another one. Lately I've found an European site(last Fall I found one for football[ESPN America] that was from Europe) to watch NASCAR and it seemed better than the ones I've used before. Yesterday I only had to change links a couple of times to watch the race.
