Netflix is Broken

As you may know, my family has been trying to cut the cable TV cord since before our move to Pennsylvania last summer, but with little success. Services like YouTube TV, Sony PlayStation Vue, and Hulu with Live TV have their advantages, for sure. But the downsides are enormous and, I think, still unsolvable for most. The result is a mess: You can subscribe, and pay for, a mishmash of services and try to emulate the things you want from live TV, like sports and so on. Or you can just give in to the terribleness of cable TV, too, as we've had to do.

Things are evolving quickly, of course. And I keep re-evaluating services, in part because that is what I do, and in part because we really want to cut the cord and be done with cable TV.
