what alternative do we have to watch CNBC, CNN via internet box instead of satellite?

I'm paying $100 / mth. on satellite. Is there any legitimate pay service via some internet box that gives real time CNN, CNBC just like the way you watch the satellite box?

Youtube TV has both of those. Something like $65 a month. My uncle uses it and likes it.

I don't. I'm not a TV watcher. I'm assuming that they know what your IP is. I don't think he's ever tried it with a VPN or anything. There is a 2 week free trial, so you could always check it out and see if it works for you.

supposed I get a VPN. How much would that cost? and is that monthly or is there a way to get a 1 time fee?

also, since it support 6 acct., can we do it like netflex, share an acct. w/ a friend?

VPNs are their own discussion. Certain ones have better results with streaming services, etc. Some of them have a lifetime access fee. The better and faster ones are usually monthly with a 1-3 year savings if you pay up front.

It says that it supports 6 accounts and 3 streaming at a time. It seems like you could share it, but how that works, I couldn't tell you. But it does sound like you're a perfect candidate for the 2 week trial ;).

After trying all the major streaming TV services, it was clear to me that YTTV was the best. I've never had any trouble in the 13 months I've used the service. Prices have risen from $50 to $65 per month. I let my parents and little brother use 2 of my 6 accounts, so it's still quite a deal.

Why are you wanting to watch either of those garbage channels? Youtube TV is by far the best from everything I've tried. PlayStation Vue was my favorite before Sony discontinued it, but YTTV is a close second.

As for VPNs, get NordVPN. Works with every streaming service I've tried. I also get 90% or more of my raw download speed from the VPN, as long as I have NordLynx set in the preferences.

so say john doe is in Mexico, and has a NordVPN, can he watch USA version of Youtube TV? for that matter, does Youtube cares where you are? I mean, why would they care in the first place?

so Youtube would know the 2 or more acct. is coming from 2 or more different IP address. And they don't care? just like Netflix then?

Yes as long as you sign up and set your location in the US and keep connecting to that same city, theoretically.

so I just need to find someone to share an acct., that shouldn't be too hard as long as they are on the same time zone, to make things easier on recording shows. I'll do that 2 week trial first. The only problem is, once I register for a 2 wk. trial, I wonder if Youtube TV register my IP addr., if so, by the time I am on a share acct., then they could find out if the state I register w/ is different than the state on that share acct.
