I like Good bones a lot. The mother and daughter team have a white truck with their logo "Two chicks and a hammer." I also like seeing parts of Indianapolis.
I like Fixer to fabulous cuz they take items from demo and use it for something! They do amazing things for not much $.
The Good bones folks also recycle and reuse an amazing variety of things salvaged before and during demo. I also like "Should I Stay or Leave." That is another couple who clearly love their work and each other.

The International House Hunters series is a treat, but the regular house hunters series often features buyers that bicker with each other and/or are such prima donnas (of both genders) that you may want to just smack them.

There is a new 'antenna' channel, I think owned by CBS, called Dabl. They have a couple of interior designer shows out of Canada that are amusing. Frequently the shows somewhat feel like 'entitled princess' wants to update a perfectly functional and attractive space that is only a decade or so old. I was delighted when a kitchen that just 'didn't suit' was being removed by a Habitat for Humanity team to be used in one of their constructions or sold in their Re-Store shops.
I can't find HGTV among the too-many channels I now have. Well, once I found it but promptly forgot where it was in the lineup. Anyway, I liked older shows that demonstrated how to convert unused places into unusual residences and how to transform one space within a residence on a strict, tiny budget. There was another one... have forgotten the name... re-creators attempted to produce a low-budget version of an extremely high-budget designer room. Sometimes, the designers liked the results.

Someday, I might find the new shows and choose my new faves. grinning smiley

That is also known as Hospital Greeting TV. It was the only safe thing that could be tuned in the waiting rooms. No news channels I have even been told to mute my phone because I had the news on.
I am watching Hgtv's Rock the Block which is a competition show of all Hgtv designers...Allison (Windy City), Mina (Good Bones) Leann (The Ford's) and Jasmine (?). It is an awesome show!!!! smiling smiley
I saw it a year or so ago so I won’t give away who won smiling smiley It was good! I think a new season will be on sometime soon.
I never heard of it before. I won't tell either. lol. I think the new one starts soon. It's on past my bedtime.
I have been wondering whether the Discovery+ streaming service is really good for lovers of HGTV, house hunters, design shows, etc. They seem to emphasize their ghosts and crime stuff (not my thing !)a lot, so I am wondering. Anyone here subscribing and watching?

First, if you have a "smart" TV, you do not have to pay for having a cable box. The TV will use the App instead of the box. It saves you the $7.99 box fee or whatever it is. I was told all Samsung TVs and TVs with Roku or a separate Roku device will work.

Second, Spectrum has three packages for TV they don't tell you about. They are all streaming packages. One you get the local channels and get to pick 10 channels from a list. It's called Spectrum TV Choice. It's $25.16 in my area.

Spectrum Lifestyle Plan is local channels and a list of set channels. It's also around the $25 level.

Spectrum TV Essentials doesn't include the local channels and you get about 75 channels for $15 and is streaming only.

Most people have the Spectrum Select which is what you get when you first sign up at the promotional price of $44. It jumps to around $75 when the promotion expires.

Found all this out on a mystery shop of Spectrum.
Yes and thanks. I had pick the 10 stations but am done with that. I can't recall what the package is but I get 60 channels and I love it. I don't have a smart tv and really do not want anything smart but my phone.

Thanks so much for the info!
I called Spectrum and told them to cancel my tv.... Then I was told about the good deals!!smiling smiley You are right wrosie. They don't tell you unless you quit the service.
