Hypothetically speaking someone who didn’t have cable/sat could sign in with a friend’s TV provider to login to Fox Sports Go to get their local NHL team. Interesting!

I put my Directv on hold for the summer and have been testing PlayStation Vue via Roku.

So far very happy with it, picture quality is excellent and they have all the channels I want, including FSDetroit.

I will have to see if GameCenter Live is available and how well it works before I cut the cord completely.

Sling TV for $25.00 does offer local FOX RSN. So I may get that, however I went a whole year without watching hockey and I survived.I broke the addiction and don’t want to get back to the NHL addiction. That said, I either will use someone’s login for FOX or just get the sling TV
