3. Yup I'm rural too but I have StarLink

I have satellite internet from motherfucker Eloon, but it’s fast and dependable as hell. Expensive as hell too. $120/mo, but NO data caps! I both work from home and do streaming only and never have an issue.

“Fast” means about 150 down and 8-10 up. After the shit service I’ve had before, this is like Cadillac internet.

Is a 47-second delay "live"? Silent3 Jan 2024 #18
Yep I count that as live TV LearnedHand Jan 2024 #20
Live TV is an option, and, in pseudo-DVR fashion, you can "record" live shows to watch later Silent3 Jan 2024 #29
