But the streaming services and streaming devices are doing what the cable companies did, exactly what we didn't like.
Sure, we can buy a TV without the streaming program that we don't want, but try to buy a nice, large TV that isn't a smart TV. And as we've seen, no matter which smart system the TV has, that system can drop what we want from our smart TV at any time.
And how I wish that Roku's were $20. My Roku's are all Ultras, that's because we prefer to hard wire our internet, and those devices are $100, not $20. So if Roku stops us from being able to stream YouTube TV, those devices are useless to us.
Roku probably assumes that most people will simply go with Hulu or Philo or any of the other streaming options, but for us, YouTube TV is the one that offers our family what we want. So if our choice is drop YT TV or Roku, we'll drop Roku in a heartbeat and never go back, and I'll be certain to badmouth Roku at every given opportunity.
