My name is Bill and I live in Newmarket, ON. Canada. I am going to cut the cord in the Spring of 2021, Presently I am under contract to Rogers for Internet/Cable/Phone and would like to explore a different way. I am considering a Tablo Quad 1TB unit and have purchased a Amazon Firestick 4K for my Samsung Smart 4K TV.
I have had an assessment by an antenna contractor that produced a report stating I would receive 21 channels OTA with a Channel Master 4228 Antenna and a Pre-amp 7778v3. The rest of our viewing requirements would come from apps on the Firestick including StackTV and Acorn.
I would like to explore this option with questions in this thread and look forward to any help that comes forward from the forum.
I currently have a (Rogers) AARIS TM 602G/115 modem in my basement where the coax cable enters my house from the street and a (Rogers) Hitron CGN3 Cable modem just beside my TV. These belong to Rogers and would have to be returned to them when I cut the cord.
Will I require a modem and a router to form a network that will support the Firestick/Tablo, my iMac computer over WIFI, and a couple of iPads and iPhones in use in the house?
PS: we have one analog TV upstairs in the house that we would get a set top box for or totally replace it next year. Not sure yet.
Thanks for your help in advance,
