Anyone actually still watch cable?

they are passing a new requirement here with the cable stations that you can now pick and choose which stations you want - instead of having to pay 20 bucks for a big package just to get the one channel you actually wanted.

now I can pick AMC, and A&E separately.  will be good!!


What are people binging on these days?

I am immersed in the Greys Anatomy.... ohhh so good

I told everyone here at least a year ago that this is where cable TV is headed, mark my words, they will be offering more and more of this and you will be able to pick only the channels you really want to watch and leave off the other 248 channels that you don't want to watch. It will mean that some channels will cease to exist and there will be even more specialized channels popping up. It's probably the only way that cable companies will be able to compete with streaming services, even morso than they do already.


Cable will be alacarte completely within 5-10 years, you heard it here first. You will still get all the local channels but other than the major local channels you will be able to pick and choose which channels you want and which you don't .

I watch alot of shows when my wife isn't home, she doesn't like all the violence and gore on the shows I like. also isn't a huge sci fi fan so anything like Expanse, and the magicians, both on syfy I watch when she ain't home


expanse is pretty good, and the magicians i have to catch up on but I liked the pilot, looked like it had some potential.

nope, in fact depending on what you get for channels, i see it being more expensive as right now there are channels that are grouped together because they are owned by the same corporations or networks and if you order 1 but not the other you will be paying as much or more for cable.

But it will be what cable TV becomes in the not too distant future in a galaxy right near you

Killjoys follows a trio of hard-living bounty hunters – Dutch, John, and D'avin– taking on interplanetary missions, chasing and capturing deadly criminals throughout a distant system named the Quad. They have sworn amongst themselves to remain neutral during a bloody, multi-planetary class war that threatens to destroy the Quad. However, their own pasts and the events around them begin to draw them in deeper to this dangerous vortex of war.

its Canadian so thats why you havent heard of it

Due to watching Xfiles I have been watching more cable, only to be led to disappointment of course... There is a new show that comes on after Xfiles called Lucifer, I've really gotten into that one. I also started to watch the new show Angel from Hell... which was so funny, but of course got cancelled after 5 episodes... I was so mad at myself for even watching it lol

One good thing tho.. XFILES IS BACK!!!!!! There is going to be another season!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Shomi is not a lame attempt at Netflix, its the Canadian version of hulu, so there is a shit ton of shows on Shomi that you can't get on Netflix Canada. I got 2 free years of Shomi with my new phone and have been watching that a lot

I was using the app on my computer to get American Netflix but it was causing a lot of issues and I didn't want to pay for the upgraded version, so when I got Shomi I checked it and it had a lot of the American Netflix stuff as well as a lot of the stuff you find on Hulu

Des - you can change the DNS settings to get the American/ Canadian/ European netflixeses.....

I don't like Shomi.  I have it free too but I find their selection sucks.  and when they advertise a series its not from the beginning ... but like last season's...

Really?? I know when I first started using it took me a bit to figure out how to navigate it, but I haven't run into any issues that the shows don't start from the first season. I watched the first 4 seasons of 2 Broke girls and the first season of Empire, which is such an awesome show!!

There is no way I am changing my DNS or IP address, Erika and Jamie did that all the time and they got a warning from both Microsoft and their ISP, they are really cracking down on that stuff. Plus changing your DNS and IP address makes your computer very vulnerable.

i'll have to check -but there were times I tried and didn't succeed in finding shows starting from the beginning. maybe they've added more - I dunno.

it depends on the DNS you connect to, people change the DNS number now because it not as easy to detect as changing your IP address, but from want I always understood is that if you change your DNS it will automatically change your IP to the same region as the DNS number, once your ISP flags you for having an IP address out of your region they will cut you off.

The issue with changing your DNS number is that if someone hacks into that DNS they can access you computer and all you information.

Do you just change your DNS number when you want to watch something or do you keep it changed all the time??

I know lots of people will change their DNS to speed up there internet, but it causes serious problems for ISPs

If you change your DNS number only when you watch Netflix you don't really have to worry, but if you keep it changed all the time, just be very careful when you are browsing or inputting personal info, a different DNS number leaves your IP address vulnerable and there's a good chance that you go to a website like google.com and it looks like its google but its not and everything you are inputting is going to which ever hacker is on that DNS

Using a Smart DNS proxy service, is not a bad idea. The only problem is that you do NOT know what traffic is being re-routed, so you do have to trust the Smart DNS proxy service. If you randomly find DNS codes online, and then apply those codes to unblock Netflix and the likes you risk the hazards below.

  1. Your privacy is exposed, do you even know what information is gathered about you, how long it is kept, and for what purposes ?
  2. Performance issues. If you are using an online random code, chances might be it is overloaded, and DNS queries are slow, which in turn slows down all of your Internet.
  3. Your personal information is at risk ! Given that you do not know who operates and owns that DNS code. You are at risk of your personal information such as Facebook information, Bank accounts, email accounts, being re-routed and stolen.
  4. Stability at loss.  How much fun is it, if you have to keep running around fetching DNS codes, and your Internet being down on and off all the time.
  5. No support ! If you have issues with the service, who do you turn to ?
  6. Free ? Why ? So there is a DNS proxy code online, which is free to use ? Why ? I mean what is in it for the DNS  code owner ? Under which jurisdiction is he acting ? And again under what privacy rules ?
