Cut the cord over 5 years ago, and will never look back. Hulu live is a great service for local channels as well. With my cable provider they actually have a streaming cable so I get that from them for 5 or 10 bucks a month, and my promotion came with HBO free. My connection runs 80 per month with free HBO, and is 500 down, 100 up. With Hulu I think they cut it back to 2 TV's at the same time, and you cannot have a VPN running on the device you are streaming from. It works with most smart TV's, and Roku, Firestick etc. I don't really watch TV, but my wife, and kid love it.
