this post is another note-to-self, because everybody has their own must-haves and don’t-cares with this stuff. tl;dr – look into AT&T’s WatchTV if you decide to buy a streaming package again.
I thought Philo was the only super-low-cost provider, because they only provide the Discovery/Scripps channels. As I’ve said before, I only needed streaming versions of HGTV and Food Network to convince T to cancel cable, so Philo got us there.
In the wake of Philo going to $20/mo (though we could be grandfathered in to the $16/mo tier), the content farms are churning out new “who’s the best?” articlettes. This one at cnet opened my eyes to AT&T’s WatchTV.
Notably, for only $15/mo they’re carrying those D/Scripps channels and Turner’s big three - TBS/TNT/TCM. (TCM would go a long way towards entertaining Mom and Marshall when they visit. Last time they were here we ultimately landed on a combo of pro golf (no one here cares about golf) and a YouTube livestream from Big Cat Rescue.)
Notwithstanding all of that.. I suspended our Philo account about a week before their $20/mo announcement because T hasn’t even been watching those two channels she said she wanted… she’s turning into one of these YouTube zombies!
