We have two Samsung Smart TVs we got many years ago. So far, so good, although we no longer use the "smart" part since getting Roku. We also don't have cable, we stream everything.

How do you watch the games? Do you have NHL or ESPN+?. I had to subscribe to Direct TV streaming to see the local games, and have ESPN+ for out of market.

well my team is the los angeles kings they have a tv deal with bally sports west used to be fox sports west :biggrin: i chose the cable package that came with all the basic sports channels and the kings channel so i get all their home and away games unless that time slot got bought out by another sport.far as other teams i only watch them during the play offs and i have all the channels that show those games:lol:so i get to watch 4 games each day at the start of the playoffs until the later rounds with less teams playing.but i would get satellite tv probably if i could my bro in law has that and he gets all the sports games

We had to get a new one earlier this year after our 15+ year old one died. My husband was very picky about what we got and this one was back ordered for over a month. It’s a Samsung smart TV and so far we are happy with it.

Hurricanes (my team) are on Bally as well (South), but the only thing I could get other than Spectrum (been there, done that) that carried Bally was DirectTV streaming Choice package. Bally now has Bally Plus so I hope I don't have to order that too. If I can get it instead of DTV, I might and downgrade that package. I have ESPN+ because my previous team (growing up in Western PA) was Penguins so I like to watch them. Otherwise I just watch the other teams when I'm in the mood and usually not the whole game, or during the playoffs.

In the house, we have a 65-inch Samsung Q60 in the living room.
We have an old JVC 48-inch (I think) with a Firestick.

In the WeShed, we have a 65-inch Samsung Q60. I also have a Q60 Samsung soundbar.

We're really happy with the Samsungs, Rick especially so during football season.

I have LG, don't remember the exact model, but I'm satisfied with it. Last week I have trouble with the smart TV on it, so I contacted lg electronics customer service and they fixed it. I also have a year warranty for it, so I don't have to worry if something happens.

Pennywise. I could not remember the name either until you said Penny. I have never seen The Shinning but would love to. I like to read the book before I see the movie but my reading days are over.

Yes, but it's finicky! We were using that, but subscribed to YouTube TV for football season. When I used our indoor antenna to watch Masked Singer last spring it felt like it was always going in and out. Maybe an outdoor one would have worked better for us.
