    YouTube TV here, too. No contract, great quality.

    Cable is the cheapest entertainment around. I cut the cord after college hoops ends then fire it up again once the NFL regular season starts. It’s a nice 5 month break...
    Go Zags!!!

    That is what I was curious about......I have no intention of cutting the cord cuz I get everything on Spectrum and I mean everything at HD live and without interruption or delay...... all the ESPNs, and Root, MW, Pac, BT, Big East....ect....

    I cannot imagine watching a game on my computer or phone.....I just assumed that you could stream to your TV ???

    Whenever I do stream anything on my computer...the quality is terrible and I have high speed fiber optic cable and whatever that means....is the streaming of high quality on these streaming services ???

    The streaming wars are just getting started and will probably be free and I am thinking that might mean lower cable fees...

    Short Netflix….long Disney....content is king...

    I had You Tube TV. I don't recall them carrying Root Sports.

    LIZF. Try downloading the IWEBTV app (orange app) to your iPhone or iPad and the do the same on a ROKU or Apple TV device. Open both. From a browser on your device copy the url of the WTV stream and paste it into the IWEBTV url box on the same device. It will then allow you to click on a stream to your tv option and if you have your IWEBTV app open on your Roku/appletv, it will accept the signal and broadcast on your tv. It’s been a year, so i am going from memory, but i think you can figure it out.

    No, it is included.

    That's weird. It is blacked out for me in Colorado.

    For Zags games on ESPN, you can either use the ESPN app on a streaming media device, phone, or tablet with a family/friend subscription login OR pay $15/month for Sling Orange:

    Can you still access the Stadium app on your Roku? Since around June, when I try to open the app on Roku, I receive the following message: "This channel is no longer available."

    This article suggests to me that a number of Zags games will NOT appear on ESPN or CBS Sports. It only speaks to WCC games. I assume the majority of thos games will involve GU, but certainly not all of them. So, who in the know can tell us if (or how) those games will be available to fans out of the local market area?

    I’m assuming Root Sports until I hear otherwise (available out of market via regional sports package on DirecTV)

    Man, I really need to see the TV schedule now... need to decide what I am going to do.

    It looks like you can, but now instead of through the Stadium App you'll be going through The Roku Channel

    When I went to the Stadium website, it appears as if there may now be a small monthly fee for live WCC programming:

    When will we finally get a REAL schedule with tip times and TV info?

    I'd WooHoo even still on this board? Francis???i need to decide soon myself. YouTube tv is perfect--except for no Root is games. Need to figure out a plan.

    Root is a 60/40 partnership between the Mariners and Warner Media (AT&T). It used to be FSN, but no longer.

    Just a heads up to those who want the best deal. I've heard that Disney+, launching in November, is going to have a bundle including Hulu and all the ESPN channels for something like $13 a month.

    I'm not sure how YouTubeTV is going to react to that since they are charging in the neighborhood of $50 a month now.

    My only worry is getting the games not broadcast by ESPN/CBS. It sounds like Stadium is the way to go? (fingers crossed)

    F1D, I think the Disney+ package includes the Hulu library streaming service, not the live TV streaming service.

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed on the Disney+ and ESPN coming together. If so, I think that's going to be the way to go for our family.

    Last season watched every game that was not on cable or major carrier on WCC tv. Mostly good some small lapses but good. Couldnt figure out stadium tv? Then again i'm not tech savy, lucky if i can get my smart phone to work correctly! Only bummer is how late the games start on east coast but i still never miss one, drives my wife crazy but i think she likes lighting up our kitchen in blue and red lights before the games!

    Well since Disney owns about 80% of ESPN that is likely ...
