    Don't even need to put money. I was doing free trials of aereo and Hulu for awhile until I finally decided to pay Hulu to keep my queue but kept going with aereo just for football season. Might try to do a few more free trials of sling to see if I really really want to continue it. Basketball season is ramping up and I'm really enjoying the games so far.

    Is this just live tv only or do they offer something like hulu where you can watch past episodes as well?

    I did the 3 month promo and I just screencast my LG G3 and use that to watch it on my TV until my Roku stick arrives. Works fairly well.

    That sucks. Shouldn't they be able to just compare IP's and determine that the connections are in the same location?

    I meant that yeah it doesn't appear that we can use more than one device at the same time. When i was on the trial the 2nd feed would cut the 1st feed out. perhaps they are setting it up for an additional fee. Kind of like a 2nd set top box for an extra cost.

    Does this provide any local broadcast stations (ex., NBC) or RSNs (Root SW)?

    Just curious how it would recognize your address, IP or billing?

    Since there aren't any regional channels your IP really doesn't matter with the exception of figuring out your time zone. Oh and I think it has to be an American IP. That's it
