Tuning in to the Amazon FB game, and I have to say, this picture is noticeably crisper than our typical DirecTV picture. Even the commercials.

So far I've had zero issues with the stream. I can't get over how amazing it looks though.

I have football through Sling one year and had issues with "freezes". No problems with Hulu last year and so far, this year.

ESPN+ can just go ahead and die in a fire already. You still have to subscribe to ESPN or FS1 or whatever to get the good games, but if you want to see all of your third tier games, you have to pay for everyone's dumpster fire of third tier games and sports.

Dish drops Disney networks overnight with no notice.

I just saw a commercial about it on my stream and it's Dish and Sling that both lost Disney/ESPN.

I can't believe they would go silent on an impending deadline and then screw people out of ESPN on 6 hours notice during college football season. I guess the good thing is you can cancel and get another service pretty quickly.

I never looked very closely at Sling because it seemed to be the most restrictive/limited of all the streaming services.

Doesn’t Dish still make you sign a long contract?

Does anyone have experience with indoor antennas that work at a long distance?

We're 40-45 miles from two clusters of broadcasts, and there are a few stations I would like to be able to view (Telemundo being one, for the World Cup). Plus, during the day, especially with bad weather, only a couple of stations come in reliably.

Right now, I'd say we're doing OK with anything over 75 dBuV/m using a powered antenna, but I'd like to get down all the way to 50 (the Telemundo station supposedly reaches us at 52 dBuV/m).

Rooftop/outdoors isn't an option.

I use YouTubeTV, so I can't recommend any antennas.

We've had pretty good luck with this one: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/...e?ie=UTF8&th=1

We bought it in 2014 and so it's not available anymore, but I would expect they have an updated version.

Obviously it works well in Chicagoland, where we are now, but it worked decently in Maine when we lived there years ago, which might be more analogous to your situation.
