    Top Ten Favorite Movies

    Can I make it all the way to 10? Victor/Victoria - On Golden Pond - Arthur (Original) - Rooster Cogburn (And The Lady) - The Goodbye Girl - The Competition - The Muppet Movie - The Great Muppet Caper - The Love Bug - Fantasia. Tomorrow, the list could be different.

    I have checked my exact location on TV Fool, among others, and TV with an antenna would yield one PBS and one Univision channel. So I do have to pay someone for my broadcast channels. My TV habits would put me over the 1 TB data cap from Xfinity/Comcast. So cutting the cord entirely is not an option. Funny how moving forward to 4K TV would make matters worse.

    No what? There you go again, trying to frighten me with your avatar. I do enjoy your creativity.

    Top Ten Favorite Movies

    I don't do numbers. But I am, as I did before, voting for speedracer5's list of movies. Some people used too many films ... disqualified. Sorry. But "The Long, Long Trailer," is the clincher. The movie is fun and puzzling. How could a car pull such a long, long trailer. A 36 foot trailer being towed by a 125 HP V8 Mercury. Okay, there were actually two cars. The uphill stuff was a 205 HP V8 Lincoln. Only in Hollywood. The funniest moment had to be Lucy/Tacy saying something about the town being small. Then Desi/Nicky tells her that isn't the population but the elevation. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Long,_Long_Trailer Funny, according to Robert Osborne, in the "Reception" section of Wiki, "The Long, Long Trailer" out sold "Father Of The Bride." This isn't a Program Challenge?📽️ EDIT: This is the only time I do numbers: Love Bobby Bare's stuff including Numbers.

    I am not into streaming so far. Not unhappy with Comcast, except for the annoying X1 box. I follow cord cutting because I like to learn. Many who claim to know what they are talking about, suggest having an antenna as part of cord cutting. I am one who lives too far for broadcast TV reception. TIVO is not the only way to get a DVR for broadcast TV. I would not pay TIVO a monthly fee for TV listings and such. Many say broadcast TV is cleaner than anything else, as it is not compressed. Zero data required. If I were getting too close with my data cap, chances are I'd look into Netflix DVD. It is still alive.

    Okay TB, just where are these movies to watch? James and I both live in CA. I am pretty upset over the loss of Paradise, California. Wanted to move there. 27,000 evacuated, and the town is mostly destroyed. I believe James is at the other end of California, where two major fires are raging. Loss to TV and filming locations could happen. I totally agree with JeanneCrain. I almost lost my home 13 months ago. Some feel good movies would be just fine. Jeanne, Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movies and Mysteries are not just calling your name, they are yelling it. Both channels have holiday movies around the clock, probably until the end of the year.

    Just to be clear, it is a monthly calculator. If you have a 1 TB data cap, it estimates you are using less than 1/3 per month. If you snoop around the website for your ISP, somewhere is a place to check your data use.

    Here is a tool from Comcast/Xfinity to estimate data usage: https://dataplan.xfinity.com/estimator/ So, unless both LawrenceA and TopBilled have hacked your WiFi code, don't worry.😏
  11. LawrenceA ... Thanks for the new avatar. The other one spooked me. <grin> I think some of us should be looking at what if? Really, are classic movies all there is? I love classic TV and classic music too. I can continue without FilmStruck, and hold your breath, TCM.

    I will let CigarJoe confirm this, but Sling TV does not have CBS. If you can get CBS with an antenna, then you might want a DVR for the antenna. You can probably downgrade your cable package to keep broadcast TV, but they will then likely force you to pay more for HD and DVR. Or you can pay a streaming service with Live TV and CBS. https://cordcutting.com/how-to-watch-cbs-without-cable/
  13. I know it has been said before, but it is dumb to stop FilmStruck for a whole year before any replacement comes online. I don't care who is stupid, be it Turner, Warner or AT&T. Add it to the list, at least for myself, of frustrations with TCM. FilmStruck may have done better with a more decent name. AT&T could have made it an add-on to DirecTV Now. I don't believe anyone would have starved to death if it was necessary to feed FilmStruck the needed cash until they could be more successful.

    I know you are asking CigarJoe this one, but here (I hope) is the answer. https://www.cbs.com/shows/the-late-show-with-stephen-colbert/ While some networks let you watch their programs for free, CBS isn't one of them (sort of). Notice how you get 5 episodes free, but the rest require paying for CBS All Access? Here are the prices: https://www.cbs.com/all-access/subscription/plan/
  15. The the moment, the Sony Crackle website and Roku app are not working. Besides that, a free commercial based service isn't what I am thinking.
