    You don't need to run an hdmi cable, you just need wifi, and a fire stick. It takes 5 minutes to setup per TV. Pretty sure bars can figure it out.

    Ok, yes it will still exist in 5 years in some form, but you will be a sucker to still be using it. Actually you are kind of a sucker if you are using it now.

    TV isn't dying. But then again, I consider Amazon Prime as TV, since I watch it on my 10 year old TV.

    And yes, the 10-year old TV has 4 different HDMI ports (I have Apple TV, Firestick, etc.

    And, I bought it from a friend in Montana who's company sets up TV/Video systems for Restaurants and Bars - a Bar had ordered 10 TV's, but then closed, so I got it brand new at wholesale.

    You can't simulcast Amazon Prime content on more than 3 devices at once. So if you have a bar with 12 TVs, you need four Amazon Prime subscriptions, 12 fire sticks, and a network infrastructure that can handle 12 HD streams at once (doubt most bars have that). That's a messy setup that most bars will probably just eschew.

    I actually cut the cord last year, but calling people a "sucker" for using it doesn't make a ton of sense. My streams are constantly struggling with the amount of strain we're putting on the network in the house, streaming services are constantly bumping up their prices (I went from $67.99/mo in November for Hulu + Live TV, Disney+, ESPN+ bundle to $78.99/mo beginning in 6 days), and they're wildly fractured so you're paying a ton for services.

    With a TV service, you can watch whatever you want in any room of your house on however many TVs you own. Streaming services can't offer that.

    Steaming from Prime will actually give a better picture since most cable boxes only get to 1080i and streaming services (like Prime) get to 1080p which is a cleaner crisper picture. I've been all streaming for the past 4 years, get everything I want and pay a fraction of the price, it's coming no matter what lol

    Still have to do it at home, mostly.

    It's just a matter of people liking to watch games differently. I go out to the bar for games at least two times a week during football season, sometimes three, and this will put the kibosh on that.

    No one in Vegas could find the 49ers-Cardinals game in any bar last season because it was only on Prime here. I ended up luckily knowing that one of my former employees streams eSports through Twitch on some of their TVs, so they had a setup we could watch at, otherwise we would have had to watch the game on a cellphone while ESPN played reruns of the 2000 Sydney Olympics at the bar.

    I guess I won't be watching TNF after this season. I hate Amazon, and everything associated with Amazon...which is a lot as Bezos seems to want to own everything. No chance I'm paying him/them ANY amount for Prime. :computer:
