    Hulu/Amazon Prime/Netflix

    I got a chromecast about a year ago, got a Roku Stick with my new TV. Got a free Month of Netflix with my chromecast, but I didn't use it much, got a free month of amazon prime with my Roku Stick, but again, didn't use it much. I watch very little TV during the week, it's rarely turned on on my behalf during the week, and on the weekend, I watch maybe a few hours. I haven't gotten rid of cable because of live sports, but I'm at the point where I spend $1200 a year for cable, and I get way less out of it than that.

    Problem is that when I have used Amazon or Netflix (and looking at Hulu's website), I spend way too long finding something to watch, and I don't see enough of what interests me to last very long. I don't watch movies, I don't watch fiction shows, most of the time I'm watching Discovery/History/Cooking/Travel/Velocity, etc. channels.

    For those who are more knowledgeable about those 3, am I just missing them, or are there very limited options on those type of shows?

    Re: Hulu/Amazon Prime/Netflix

    Have you tried searching by channels or genre? Just a quick look there were quite a few reality TV shows from the History channel and some from A&E. Prime also carries HBO content so there are documentaries on there. I don't watch a lot of prime time tv but do watch a lot of the series on HBO.

    I watch all 3 a lot, but I love movies and like Hulu to binge watch shows.

    Assuming you mean prime, there? I guess I need to look deeper, I thought I saw more on Netflix than on prime.

    I'm obsessed with the documentary section on Netflix. Cant speak for the other two though.

    Yes, on Prime. Not a whole lot of diversity, but there are some shows (American Pickers, Pawn Stars, American Restoration, etc) And it is usually the earlier seasons on Prime, sometimes the later seasons aren't Prime yet. I've never had Netflix to compare, so it could be a very small selection on Prime.

    I'm also curious about this. Also about how Chromecast works with firstrowsports. I'll be without cable or satellite (and with a Chromecast) for the next football season.

    Chromecast works just fine with Firstrowsports. Trust me - I've done it a lot

    Re: Hulu/Amazon Prime/Netflix

    We have Netflix, Hulu and Prime. We rarely watch prime (have it for the shipping) and it varies how much we watch the other two. If it were not for sports I would probably be a cable cutter (or at least a basic package).

    This leads me to my next question. How is the NFL on first row? Does the league put much effort into stopping it?

    I haven't really had any problem finding any game for any sport on Firstrow. Quality is rarely good though. And make sure you have an antivirus and a pop up blocker.

    Yes, especially antivirus according to malwarebyses.

    The fact that Hulu Plus still makes you watch commercials infuriates me enough to never sign up for it.
