So remember how I said my account got hacked? Well my card was attached to my fubotv account and they sent an email and they said they will have to shut off my service unless I update my payment account. How long should I play that out? Lol

Damn Philly is gone on Windscribe? I just starting using the service. Oh well I had one good month with it. 

Just got an email from Igor at Windscribe (don't know if that's a real or fake name), they just added 2 Philly servers.

Tried the "Jawn" server first and Fubo wouldn't connect. So I switched to the "Rocky" server and it works right as rain. As it's been, I've only been able to see NBC Sports Philadelphia (both of their channels), from Philadelphia and not the NBC, CBS or Fox channels. Now I can see them all.

So, for out of towners that want Philly locals, Fubo and Windscribe will do it.

Looks like they changed the nicknames of the servers. 'Jawn' is now 'Fresh Prince' and 'Rocky' is now 'Cheese'.

The Philly Servers don't register with Fubo as being in Philly anymore. Last time I checked, it was registering as New York.

My service? I'm on free account #4 or 5 (just started a new one today). I'd like to be able to get the local CBS, NBC and ABC, but that's not a 'deal breaker' for me. I mostly just want NBC Sports Philadelphia and I get that regardless of where the IP address shows me as being, since I signed up with a Philly zip code.

Oh ok I misunderstood then. I thought you weren't able to get the Philly channels anymore.

Yeah, I can get NBCS Philly just not Fox, ABC, CBS or NBC. Hopefully that will change by the time the season comes around, but if it doesn't, I can usually work around it even if I have to go to the opposing teams VPN server or some other city that's getting the Eagles game.

If I don't know about a gadget or method, I can pretty much get up to speed quickly if I see a benefit in it.

Well my question is about the mobile hot spot devices like the Verizon jetpack. I was thinking about going with that instead of getting Xfinity and just get the Verizon unlimited plan. I know they say some of those devices are just as strong as a router/modem and can work just as well as long as you don't need to hook up to much to it which I dont

I'd have to look into them to see what I think. I don't have any first hand experience with it, but I do like the concept and had briefly looked into it a few years ago but just didn't really have a pressing need so I didn't go too far with it.

The businesses around her have Verizon internet but they don't really do any home internet around here. I dont want to give my money to Xfinity either. Plus I already run everything off of an Xfinity hotspot and I have no issues and it only runs at like 25mbs.

The issue is I can log onto the Xfinity hotspot because my parents have Xfinity but that won't last forever plus it isn't always flawless

Earlier, I went to Verizon's website for that hotspot, and it didn't have great reviews. But then again, most people that write online reviews are the ones who aren't happy. For every bad review, there could be 100 happy customers.
