    YouTube has just announced that they are in development of a new paid subscription service. This will not be an all YouTube service, but their version of Over the Top streaming to appeal to those who have, or are thinking about "cutting the cable". Think of it as an on-line cable package.

    The company is currently in negotiations with major content creators such as Comcast Corp.’s NBCUniversal, Viacom, Twenty-First Century Fox, and CBS.

    The company is calling the upcoming service Unplugged, and hopes to offer 15-30 channels, for under $35, sometime in 2017.

    We drop cable/sat long time ago. Put up an antenna and we only pay for netflix and amazon prime. Not going to pay for any other "service"..

    I have a funny story..

    Last week, I got a phone call from Comcast.. They wanted me to get their latest deal, etc.. I told the lady, I don't own a tv. She was shocked to hear this and then asked me what I do for entertainment. I then told her I read books and then hung up the phone.

    Main:
    Samsung UN75F8000 LED TV, NAD T-777 (7.2 Receiver), Oppo 103 Blu Ray Player, Sony PS4 Gaming Console, Panamax MR-5100 Surge Protection, 7 Paradigm Reference series 8" in ceiling speakers (AMS-150R) - 30 degree tilting speakers, 2 Paradigm SE Subs. Pictures here.
