I am more amazed that phrase was "invented"

After enjoying a Netflix trial for a couple of months, my wife has consented to letting me "cut the cord" on our TV service. She seems to understand that paying for cable funnels money to ultra-evil entities such as CNN and ESPN even if we don't watch them. It will also save us somewhere between $50 and $60 per month ... possibly more, but eventually you get into a point of diminishing returns where "just Internet" costs more than a bundle.

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.

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.

"Thirteen channels of shit on the TV to choose from..."  -Pink Floyd 1982

"Over 120 channels of shit on the TV to choose from...." updated lyrics for 2017

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.
