I finally decided to try Sling TV out. It's basically an online-only cable service but with a very limited selection of channels. But they have the ones I want, (except for the Science Channel). I did discover one cool thing with Sling. I have the SyFy app on Amazon Fire, but without a cable service, it wouldn't let me watch anything on it, (which in my opinion defeats the purpose of having Amazon Fire to access all those apps), but once I got Sling TV, the app started playing everything. Because although Sling TV has SyFy, it does in the way a normal cable service would and you can only watch while things are on, or DVR them. It also comes with a 50 hour DVR, which I really like.
So yesterday I was able to watch an episode of Killjoys using the SyFy app on my Amazon Fire, which I wasn't able to do before I got Sling. But this morning I tried to watch an episode of Wynona Earp and it didn't let me. Weird.
The Sling TV DVR likes to delete stuff for no apparent reason. Sometimes it does so right after I watch something. Sometimes I haven't even watched it yet and I'll go to look for it and it'll be gone. Pretty annoying.
They have BBCAmerica on demand only. No Doctor Who. WTF? But they have the first season of Killing Eve and only about a dozen other shows, none of which I'm interested in. I watched Killing Eve. I liked it up until the last few moments. I can't recall in particular what I had a problem with, but I know I was annoyed. *shrug* But I'll still watch season two when it finally comes out.
I was ok with that. I think it was the outcome in the apartment and I thought it should have gone slightly differently. That's all I really recall. I think maybe it felt like at the last minute they realized they were getting a second season so they couldn't actually finish the story.

NYPinTA: I think it was me who turned it off. Were the spambots getting to it? Because it's just a box I check off on the forums setting page.

NYPinTA: I know I had it on trying to get all the people who used to chat on Shield.TV (which is gone) and Whedonesque (which is shut down) but had no real way of getting their attention.
