Title: Where Are You Getting Most Of Your Buzzr Fix?
Post by: TimK2003 on January 20, 2019, 07:08:31 PM
With a number of different ways you can watch old game shows on Buzzr now, I am interested in how/where are you going for most of your Buzzr watching: 

•  Live & Direct off the actual Buzzr sub-channel (via cable or rabbit ears)?

•  Live & Direct off the Buzzr website (via computer or smart phone)?

•  Live from a secondary source streaming service -- i.e. PlutoTV, STIRR, etc... (via Roku, Fire Stick, Apple TV...)

•  Watching selected episodes on demand via Amazon Prime.

•  Watching selected episodes on demand via internet posters (YouTube, etc...)

I'm curious to find out where everyone is currently getting their Buzzr fix and what format above seems to be the current trend. 

I will try to convert the given answers into rough percentages next weekend.

Pluto via Roku, and before that, streaming through BUZZR’s site.

I also watch shows here and there on Amazon.

Twitch, BUZZR site, Amazon Prime in that order.  WBXZ-LP is not available OTA or on cable in Toronto.

NKT.tv - totally worth the low low subscription price!

Mostly the website at this point. No OTA here.

OTA via antenna. WFLD 32.3 here in Chicago.

Google Chrome via Smart TV. Follow the steps in my other post! You'll be amazed!

We have Dish network. Have also enjoyed some Amazon Video shows too.

Had the NKT subscription but cancelled it when Pluto came around. Not liking Pluto but just got a new smart tv that can run the internet - so i just punch up the website.

Website through my Xbox One. Occasionally via Pluto but the broadcast is pretty flaky on there as others have mentioned...

Dish Network for me.

I watch it over rabbit ears, like a caveman. I audibly groan whenever I hear the ditty that indicates the five-minute Plexaderm ad is starting.

I started doing this as well. Pluto was just too inconsistent.

Their website, YouTube, Amazon Prime. Pluto's stop-startiness makes it more frustrating than it's worth.

Primarily through Pluto on Roku or Chromecast.

Occasionally I watch (usually through Pluto) on my phone or desktop, or bring up the direct link if Pluto starts buffering badly. I’m still experimenting with STIRR.

No BUZZR OTA or in cable in my area, and I don’t have Dish, so those are non-starters for me. Once in a while I run the Twitch feed, but TBH I forget about it most of the time.

My Xfinity setup includes a local station's Buzzr broadcast. In fact, that's one of the reasons I switched from U-Verse to Xfinity about six months ago - to get the local subchannels. (I live too far away from the broadcast tower to get them over the air. Well, occasionally Buzzr would seep through, but I couldn't record it.)

Although I have it through my cable provider, I watch the online stream when I do watch.

More often, I watch the episodes someone recorded and uploaded on to YouTube.

Seriously varies and where and when. If I'm at my one TV with an antenna, I'll watch Buzzr OTA. If not, stream. Ever since the direct VLC link shared in an old thread died, I've been doing it via either Pluto or STIRR; Pluto supports minimizing the video, STIRR seems a bit more stable.

I'll seek out stuff from uploaders if it's something I missed or that Buzzr doesn't air anymore (Combs FF, Body Language, LMaD, et Al.).

Almost exclusively their website.  Paid extra to blow my xfinity cap because we're super-cord-cutting over here.  Enough bandwidth for three simultaneous 4k streams, and 0 craps given.

I did watch some of the stuff that showed up on Amazon prime, even though Strike it Rich isn't my cup of tea.

As promised, here are the non-scientific results of the survey.  To make tallying go quick,  I took everybody's first response in each post (in case more options were mentioned) -- if someone wants to factor in 2nd and 3rd choices into a deeper survey, have at it. 

Out of 22 people surveyed, approximately:

45.5% -- Via OTA or Cable/Sat
  3 via Rabbit Ears/OTA
  5 via Cable
  2 via Satellite (Dish)

27.2% -- Via Streaming App (Pluto/STIRR..)
  3 via PlutoTV
  1 via Twitch
  1 via NKT
  1 via Google Chrome

22.7% -- Via Buzzr Website
4.5% -- Via Amazon Prime
------
99.9%

Thankx again for the input.

I get mine from the NKT.tv service for a dollar a month.
