I believe you can stream for free, go to pbs.org
Also as a resident in Northern California and specifically in the SF Bay Area, I used to have Xfinity (Comcast) and used their DVR. I didn't like their DVR because the fan almost never turns off and is somewhat noisy. It also uses 43 watts of energy all day/night long. I am fortunate to be living in the East Bay and easily receive their signal with an inexpensive set of rabbit ears. I also have a 4K Roku which I really enjoy and use every day. I cut the cord and went with over-the-air and with Roku. More than enough for me. The Roku has sharper images than Xfinity or over-the-air.
Really? That's good to know. Actually, that I can stream direct from PBS and use Roku.
Well, I got into the one year contract and I'm going to stick it out, but make note of when the contract expires (and they hike the rate).
My wife wanted the 200 stations, but we STILL only watch PBS, and NetFlix appears to be popular, too. So, we miss the Academy Awards and the Olympics every 2 years. I think over-the-air was better quality than Comcast through their scrambler box. So, if Roku is even better than that, I'm all for that (and I will need ammunition when convincing my wife ;-)
Still, wish I could figure out how to get the signal. I have to play around with the antenna, maybe. I may not be able to get it high enough because I don't know what height I need. Maybe, I'll purchase a USB digital TV stick and go find the best location by walking uphill with a laptop.
Thanks for the suggestions to all.
