I’m assuming a basic tv or basic smart tv and i believe the general consensus is a roku? Are they difficult to use? Do you have to pay a monthly fee to watch stuff on the roku itself or what comes “loaded on the roku” or what capabilities does it have? What are the best streaming services that offer the most for their price to subscribe to ?( cheap but offer a lot) and are there any other ones that go with those that don’t offer the same stuff as the other?
Lastly, my family and I live in florida, on the west coast. It is crucial we get Bay news 9 weather WITHOUT paying for cable. Is this possible and how? If not, what is the alternative for my parents who use the TV to get updates and not the computer? ( i don’t check the weather, they keep track of it. and they don’t use things like weather apps, and because of where we live we need actual news and specific updates/ instructions.)
Advice appreciated! Again, also looking for the most cost effective stuff and preferably limited or no ads (i know hulu really f’s people there. even subscribers.)
