But in their defense we added a Tivo a while back which increased the price. I have to say that I like Suddenlink better than both of the dish services. Within the last month they rewarded me with a couple of months of free movie channels (2) & upgraded my internet speed for free. I like that.
    I have found calling up and threatening to leave can result in a lower price. I left anyways.
    Yep, I'd wrap that in bacon! KEEP AMERICA GREAT, TRUMP 2020

    Not that I know but then I haven't looked either. I only heard of OAN a couple of months ago around here.

    Where do I get it? I can hook it up? I have a land line. Do I need to get more speed?

    I haven't had much to complain about regarding this set-up (and I love complaining).
    Where do you get it? What does it cost? Can I hook it up?

    I already have the hdmi cable running to my PC. So that's a start, right?

    Yep, you got it turned on? On my remote, I go to "input" and select
    computer" yours may say computer or HDMI. When you are done, unhook from the computer if using antenna TV, it messes up reception.

    I have been streaming free, live TV from this site Big Bird found.
