Does anyone use alternative tv services such as Amazon Tv or Roku versus cable/satellite? Do you like it better?

We have cable and ROKU. I hate ROKU tho...too much technical stuff to switch it over for me. My husband uses it a good bit. We also have netflix. I can't get my HGTV on ROKU and I like to watch shows right when they are on.

I only use Netflix.

I'm in Canada and never heard of those other services, so I'm pretty sure it's something we don't have here. Lol

My sister uses Hulu Plus and Netflix.  She has gotten used to it but she misses not being able to see some shows for quite awhile.

We looked into Roku but I'm liking the Amazon Fire TV a lot better.

Amazon Tv and Roku are streaming devices that also have other "channels" with them. THey stream Netflix, and hulu and whatever else you happen to be subscribed to.

I like Netflix a lot, and I think there's enough on there to where I don't need hulu but we might try it out too.
