I am more amazed that phrase was "invented"
So let's say we have a $50 budget for over-the-top services. Some of that will go to a Netflix subscription. We probably need something else to supplement it. Dear Lazyweb: which service would be a good replacement? She likes mysteries and sci-fi. I don't watch TV, and the kids don't care. The only requirement is that any OTT service we purchase must NOT funnel money to CNN or ESPN.
I would also prefer services that are compatible with ChromeCast, which we already have on every screen, but that's not a strict requirement.

Check out Directv Now. $35 a month, no contract.
Should have read further. It has CNN.
I think you'll find it hard to avoid those two networks when everyone bundles them in with a bunch of other stuff.
Unless you want to completely unplug from all of the content from the major carriers and go with alternative content from smaller players, I don't see much hope of getting away from giving those two a little money.

I looked at the basic package, out of the sixty I might watch seven.
Also "57 channels and nothing on" (Bruce Springsteen, a former musician, in 1992)
Some people like SlingTV due to the channels they include in their packages. DirectTV has a streaming package as well. That is for live TV. There is also Hulu for after the fact TV. Youtube TV, Youtube Red and a couple more I can't remember right now.
