Unfortunately, Hulu+ does not offer ROOT Sports so I can watch Mariners games.

The only two live TV streaming services that do I'm aware of are DirecTV and Fubo.

Is anybody using T Mobile for internet?

I am going to take their service for a test drive and see how it is.

If it's as good or better than Xfinity I can save quite a bit.

Without going back through the last several messages looking for individual names, may I just ask those who have offered comments on my router/modem situation with Cox Communications, and buying my own instead of renting theirs, etc, etc...

I need to know if those of you who have had success in owning your own router, and still able to connect through Cox... are you on a PC or a Mac. Mac users seem to have better success with this. Since I'm a PC user, I probably should know if I'm facing a different set of Cox rules than the Mac users.

I want to discuss this with Cox and Best Buy to start with, but I'd like to know what I don't know, if that's gonna be a factor here.

Thanks to any help, suggestions or ideas before I start a wild goose chase.

Ken, I've bought my own router (Netgear) that I use with my iMac and have no problems using Cox for my internet provider. In fact, I've been with Cox for over 25 years and have had several routers over the time frame and was a Windows based user for all but the last 7 years until I went with Apple. Good luck in getting your system operating to your satisfaction.

Jerry, good to hear a success story concerning Cox and your own router. My neighbor uses his own router, not sure of the brand, but he's on a Mac, which seemed to be a simple hook-up. Your long-time success with Cox, a PC and your own router is encouraging.

The Best Buy online site shows a Netgear router claiming to be Cox compatible. I'm going to check with them as well as Cox before I buy the router, just to be sure I'm okay. A question right away for Cox will be a refund for this brand new router they just set me up with. I was stunned to find they billed me $100 for it.

Question about the Netgear router you use. Any problems with it? I know nothing about the product, or company.

Thanks for helping with this.

I have had a Netgear router with Cox and it works fine. I had to get some help from the gurus at Best Buy to get it installed correctly.

Blessings,

Today I received my gateway/router from Tmobile for internet service and I just connected all my devices and so far it is working very well.

I am surfing the various sites I use on my laptop and it seems just as reliable and fast as xfinity is.

xfinity is charging me 90 dollars for internet. Tmobile is 50 dollars, no contract, price is locked in. There is a 2 week trial period to make sure I really want it.

If it works like it is currently working I will gladly tell xfinity what they can do with their internet charges.

Hi John, Good to hear. Are you on a PC, or a Mac. I know a couple of people who say the same thing you do and they're on Macs. I think I may just be overly gun shy with this due to a failed experience at trying it a few years ago. I didn't find Cox particularly helpful then and have ill feelings about them since.

Best Buy assures me their router will work just fine, but the store was out of them. I'll order it and wait.

I am a PC guy since a disagreement with Jobs back in the early 1980's.

I had a software products company and he didn't want any 3rd party products on his computers. Initially they made it very difficult for independent developers.

Times changed a little bit.

Blessings,

SOJ
