How many of you guys have a TV in the truck?
When I was OTR I definitely had one. I would watch what Digital channels I could get.
After a while I gave up on that and just used a Blu-Ray player to play DVDs on the flat screen.

My bunk was better equipped than my home at the time.

you could have gotten a roku to and streamed netflix in the truck as well ;). all you have to do is connect it to a truck stop wifi or tether it to your phone:rolleyes-80:

Only if you're near a major population center. T-Mobile's network sucks.
LA is a testing ground for t-mo out here t-mo is better than verizon after looking at my friends verizion phone and he was getting 3 bars and i was getting 5 bars the whole entire time. and now there installing the 600 mhz spectrum a huge plus. though i have been in places where verizon still has there old 1x crap and that's using a cell phone booster:bonk:

i have to laugh at some people on this cord cutting trip. they think about what channels they have to watch and not the physical shows they want to watch makes no sense to me and they complain that it costs more than keeping cable:biglaugh::coocoo:. and the first thing people bring up is football they all think that they can't watch football:eek::D:rolllaugh3:
 
Anybody got any tips on watching the Juniors? Without a TV or any cable/satellite provider.

Radio is fine too, but I like watching the Juniors

Phone, pc or radio. I'm not picky

I don't know what a sling blue tv is nor what a streaming device

I did that for a couple years, find a bar and be obnoxious enough until they put the Juniors on.

I don't know how to make that jive with being OTR.....log out off duty, add a comment "Games on going drinking" :biglaugh:
