Hulu

After cutting the cable several months ago I could only get my husband to agree to do it because Hulu live is the only streaming service that offers the Philadelphia Flyers and unless you have cable or FIOS, this is the only other way to watch them on TV. That being said I was tired of paying over $280 per month for cable and internet service. I have Hulu live which runs me approximately $45 a month and I have gigabit internet service which is approximately 100 so I knocked almost half of my bill off. Great. Until you try to watch TV with Hulu live. The constant buffering, the unsync renovation of the audio to video, the games that appear to almost be played in slow motion and standard definition, not to mention cutting off the last 2 minutes and 20 seconds of the Super Bowl in which the Philadelphia Eagles won for the first and only time in franchise history! Be advised though that Hulu buys blocks of time for events like sporting matches, so if the block of time is from 8 to 10 p.m. who live will cut off at 10 p.m. even if the game you're watching is going until 10:05)

Also if your TV is not of the newest technology you will not be able to stream directly through your smart TV app to Hulu live, you can only get Hulu Plus or standard Hulu. That's why we have Roku sticks on all of our TVs even though they're only a year or two old.

Hulu live only offers approximately 40 cable channels if you're lucky. Right now though it's our only choice besides cable. So to work around all of the issues most of the time I watch through the TV apps on my Roku stick. I can log in and subscribe to most of them with my Hulu live account, but for those that hulu live does not offer, I just use one of the 27 family member's cable or dish logins who use my Netflix login haha. I don't watch a lot of television so it's not unmanageable or unlivable for me, but if you are someone who watches live TV a lot this is not going to be the best option for you

I've had Netflix we're probably going on at least 10 years now. Started with the DVDs that came in the mail and it was always fun to see what was coming next, and to be able to build up your playlist and had the next one returned automatically when you turn to the current disc was great. Course DVDs as the case with most technology overtime, have gone on away for the most part in lieu of or in favor of streaming. I have Netflix free now through my phone carrier which is a pretty cool benefit, but I have no problem paying $10 a month for the service. My biggest gripe with Netflix is the constant reversion to standard definition vs. HD. I have called a couple of times and the claim is that it's my Wi-Fi, yet I have Hulu live and Roku and neither of those seem to have a problem with the HD streaming. And it's not pleasant to look at a standard-definition picture on a 60-inch TV-the quality is just quite poor. However the pros it most definitely outweigh the Cons with Netflix, and I will continue to subscribe to it. Especially since I have about 27 people in my family using my login and I've never had an issue with Netflix telling me that I've got too many devices connected

Martha Stewart like is the only way I can accurately describe the meals that are sent through Marley spoon haha. I tried them for several weeks mainly because I had coupons, and honestly that's the only time I try these food service companies. . The ingredients were very fresh and the packaging was fantastic, the directions for the meals I chose that particular amount of time or a little more on the complex side because I'm not a novice cook. But as is with anything that Martha does the instructions were clear and the presentation was fantastic.

I have participated in estate sales and on on-site auctions for many many years. Even as a child I recall going to auctions and waving my grandmother's paddle to win my "things". As I got older the stress would get to me to the point that I would bet on things I didn't need just to win LOL. When I first discovered maxsold, I was skeptical. But after at least 10 successful auction purchases (and a few that I was hoping not to win haha) I can truly say that Max old issiimply the best auction program to participate in. With no reserve and no minimum bid, friendly employees working at every site, easy in easy out, easy pay and complete credit card security it is the way to go! If i ever have to downsize or know someone who is I'll recommend MaxSold without hesitation

I have had Netflix for a little over 3 years and the expansion over that time has really made it...

Netflix, knows how to do business: like Amazon Prime, they listen, respond & react to customer...
