T-mobile bundle or Sparklight?


I am paying $310 monthly for Sparklight phone, internet, and tv.  They took my easy to understand DVR box and now use an Amazon fire stick. My essential tremors preclude my hands from holding and using the tiny 5” x 1.5” remote used to cruise the amazon prime channels.  I do not watch movies or sports or play games.  I JUST WANT CABLE TV HDMI1 or HDMI 2 TELEVISION shows from CBS to PBS to HISTORY, food, bravo, espn, msnbc, to AMC, TCM, and the WEATHER channel. I have amazon prime but aside from free shipping, I DON’T CARE about all that entertainment garbage.  

Is T-mobile “cable” service more BABY BOOMER friendly that Sparky? My tremors mostly severely affect my hands and any muscles used to hold utensils, pens, finger agility, etc.

T-Mobile does not have a cable-like service. Can you get traditional cable from Spectrum or Comcast or Cox or similar?  The cable companies also have bundles with Internet and phone service. 

Another option is to cancel the TV part of your package and buy your own streaming device and subscribe to a cable-replacement service such as Sling Blue.  Roku devices have slightly larger remotes than Firestick remotes.  The service’s guides work something like cable TV guides.

Sling also offers free channel option. A lot of OTA channels.
