    Thinking of cutting the cord (kind of). I am wondering if I just went to pretty basic, standard def cable to keep local sports, could I use the ESPN app on Roku and receive a HD feed? So in other words if I had standard def cable with ESPN, Disney channel etc, once I authenitcized the apps on roku on another tv would I get SD or HD feed on the roku?

    First of all, welcome to the group. I remember what it was like going through the wants and needs when looking to cut the cord. Hopefully, you will find help (just like I did) through this forum.

    If your cable provider has ESPN as a part of whatever package you subscribe to (I am not aware of a basic package with just ESPN – but it cannot hurt), then the answer is most likely yes. I say most likely, as you should have that ability now if you currently have ESPN as a part of your cable package.

    My suggestion: If your provider does not have a basic + ESPN package available, then see what it would cost you to go with just the basic package and SlingTV. I do not subscribe to SlingTV, but I know others in the forum do. It might be a cheaper option in the end.
