Is there a streaming alternative to live TV on cable?

Ralph from Huntington Beach, CA

Episode 1294 (1:43:14)

Roku 4

Ralph has been victim of the transition from Verizon to Frontier and he's looking for live TV alternatives. What about cable TV over the internet like Vstream? Leo says it depends on the source of the channels they bring. Many are either illegal, or foreign language TV. He could end up with soccer from Ecuador. It's not going to be ABC, ESPN or his local news. It really comes down to content. He'd really be better off going with Roku and then add things like Netflix, HBO, etc.

Sling offers a streaming package for $20 a month, but he still won't get local programming. For live TV, he can always put up an antenna.
