Most streaming services are not Smart TV compatible, unless you get a Amazon TV that has a fire tech built in. I'd assume in a few years they will but as of right now they don't have that app available for download. 

Get a cheap plug-in for streaming Vue, Sling or DirectTV and then your Smart TV can do Netflix, Amazon, HBO, Hulu etc.

Interface is usable just not user friendly, if that makes sense. Not a streaming quality issue just tough to find channels sometimes, but once you figure it out its fine. They are talking about creating a better one though.

As someone mentioned below, that was the main reason I switched from Sling to Vue....you can have more than one TV working at the same time.

I've used both Sling and Playstation Vue and Playstation Vue is better BUT did just send out a price hike notice. If you go with Playstation Vue, its worth getting a playstation. The interface is terrible on Roku.

I can confirm he does not exclusively run his twitter account. Almost all of the these guys who have a "personal account", share it with their communications director. The other account is run by his communications team.

Quality of education is still highly ranked in the state. Whats the difference between a kid going to a private school for music or dance or any other specilization. As long as the children are still receiving quality education I have no problem. Yes I understand IMG's greater mission in getting ahead on potential clients but if I had a kid who was able to go, hes going.

What I did is just got a basic box from my internet provider. I had an option for DVR box but opted not. I believe it was 15 a month for the DVR box. What you would do is order the basic cable plan with high internet speed (to run Sling). You wouldnt need to get an antenna and wouldnt have to worry about signal strength.

What you can do is which ever internet provider you go with, just pick up a DVR box with basic cable (8-20 channels). It would probably cost you 15 a month and would solve getting an antenna. If you buy your own modem you can cut another 12ish a month of your bill to compensate for the DVR box price.

Cut about 2 months ago. I got 75/35 internet speed and added a digital box to get my basic channels instead of getting an antenna. Advantages are I dont have to worry about signal but I will have to pay 8 a month for it. 

I got sling and added ESPN2, SEC, and others (basic sling comes with ESPN). I already had Netflix and Amazon. Comcast kicked in HBO with my internet. I run Sling through my Xbox1 and my FireTV. Sling does have about a 10 second lag so dont text friends while watching sports. Occasionally it will lock up but a quick reset fixes it. 

Overall, I saved about $40 a month and have much better internet speed. I have yet been in a situation where I cant watch anything that I want.

just buy 2006 tickets. They wont catch on for a few minutes which is what I assume is the desired amount of time. 

Comment 24 Oct 2015

I was wondering the same thing. Do you think that was design or an oversight? Like JT was supposed to hand it off?

I was one of the most secure Air Force Bases in America when I was rushed out of the classroom because our base was on the highest alert possible following the planes.

Nothing will be worse than the way I saw OSU fans respond to last years Sugar Bowl win on Bourbon St. I have never been more embarrassed concerning sports fandom. People stomping and spitting on Bama flags, people throwing beers at my friends who were Bama fans...we left after an hour out.

GA is pretty close by. It's probably the biggest school in the country that no one has ever heard of...over 30,000 students now.

Buddy at the game said he was decently close to the fall. Rumor is he was heckling A-Rod and fell over. Such a shame, prayers go out to the family.
