We're in the final stages of cutting off cable in Park Ridge. I got an hd antenna and a firestick. The last thing i haven't figured out is how to watch the Hawks games. Anyone have experience with this? Is NHL gamecenter necessary / worth it? Thanks!

Check into the Sling TV app; it's compatible with Firestick, and I know you get ESPN & various other cable channels. It's $19. 99/mo.

We had to get a hockey package through HPN (I think that's what it's called) for like $150 for the season to see all the games on any network.

If you have an iPad, download the ESPN app and get an HDMI cable that connects the iPad to your TV! (And when I say iPad, I mean iPad/iPhone/smart phone... Pretty much anything that can get the ESPN app)

First row sports. You need Ad Block Plus installed. Sometimes the quality is lacking.

With the Hd antenna and firestick do you get more channels? I've thought about getting rid of cable, but am afraid we would miss channels like food network and HGTV.

Kathy, let me know if you guys have any other questions. We have been cable free for almost 2 years and it's so freeing ;)

Sounds awesome except for the no DVR part. I could never live without my DVR.

Sling TV. You would need a decent laptop (not apple) to hook the video feed directly to a TV (pc input). It's 20/month but well worth it. I used it for the Cubs run and it worked great.

I was considering this a yr ago. At that time a person could pay for the NHL app package but your home team games are excluded. The work around is having a friend in another city sign up and then their home teams would be blocked. Then of course reimburse
