StreamSavvy Guide: What to watch January 19, 2017

StreamSavvy’s expert TV picks for the great TV from January 19, 2017. Watch Zach Galifianakis in Baskets as Season 2 kicks off on FX. Here is the daily rec from January 19 and how to stream the show.


FX continues to tear it up dropping great show after great show. Tonight it’s the return of Zach Galifianakis to the TV screen with Season 2 of Baskets.

Watch Zach Galifianakis in Baskets: Season 2 premiere on FX - stream on Sling TV

Watch Zach Galifianakis in Baskets: Season Premiere

We love Zach Galifianakis. There can never be enough Zach G in the world. So it’ll be rad to watch Zach Galifianakis in Baskets Season 2 and watch what little nuggets he will bring when the FX show premieres tonight.

The dark comedy that flew under the radar in Season 1 brings you the laughs but actually dives and wrestles with issues in a deeper way than most shows that make the attempt. LA Times buys into Basket‘s outstanding job of working through darker themes of “self-loathing, adult-life crisis and sick relationships better than much more hyped series such as ‘Animals,’ ‘Love’ and ‘Girls’.”

Save Baskets to your favorites on the StreamSavvy mobile app so you never miss another episode.

Chip Baskets (Zach Galifianakis) attempts to chase his dream and become a French clown. Failing out of a prestigious clown college and hitting broke, Baskets moves back home to Bakersfield. He gets an ice bucket challenge to the face when his only opportunity is a rodeo clown and he is forced to deal with the reality of family and dreams slipping away. (FX 10/9c)

How to watch: you can stream the FX channel tonight and watch Zach Galifianakis in Baskets in the season premiere on Sling TV with the Blue package or with Playstation Vue (all tiers).

If you missed Season 1, you can binge it up on Hulu now.

Watch Super Bowl 2017 free online: Stream live without cable

The annual weekend where we all gather around the luscious array of snacks and beer with the most expensive commercials playing in the background. Oh yeah – and the game between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons. Super Bowl LI (that’s 51 to the layperson) kicks off Sunday, February 5 at 6:30pm ET on FOX. And this year FOX has made it super easy to watch Super Bowl 2017 free online without cable.

Here’s how to watch Super Bowl 51 free.

FOX Sports Go App: The best way to watch Super Bowl 2017 free online

Hands down the easiest way to watch the game in your living room. Typically, you need cable login credentials to even look at the FOX Sports Go app, but FOX is removing authentication for the game. That’s right, you don’t need a cable login to watch the Super Bowl on the FOX Sports Go app. Available on most streaming devices (i.e. Roku, Chromecast, Apple TV, FireTV, Xbox), you only need to search for and download the app. Then you’re good to go.

You can also download the FOX Sports Go app on you laptop and phone, but you will need to be on your home wifi. If you are on cellular data, you will need to access the game directly from Verizon.

Sling TV

In select markets you can stream the game live from Houston with the Sling TV Blue package. There are a limited number of locations that the local FOX network is available. These are typically larger cities. If you’re in one of these locations, you’re in luck and can stream the game directly through your Sling TV subscription. No other downloads needed.

Digital Antenna

Depending on your proximity to your local FOX broadcast station, the digital antenna is a great option. With a $30 antenna, you can watch the Super Bowl (and a lot of other TV) on your local FOX station in HD for free.

If you’re relying on this option for the game but don’t have a digital antenna, definitely run to Best Buy or do a 2-hour Amazon order and experiment with it. For some people, digital antenna’s work great. For others, not so much.

Refugee Ban Executive Order – The Real Refugee Story – Frontline: Exodus

Exclusive, never-before-seen footage of refugees escaping the terror of the realities in their home countries. Much of PBS special, Frontline: Exodus”, is captured in first person by refugees as they flee for their lives. These are the stories of refugees, the same people impacted by the refugee ban executive order.

If your head wasn’t buried in the sand during the second weekend of Donald Trump as the President of the United States, you’re probably aware of the refugee ban executive order. The refugee ban executive order prohibits refugees from a select group of countries from entering the U.S. for the next four months. The PBS documentary special, “Frontline: Exodus”, tells the stories of refugees, the people impacted, like no other work out there.

Follow live updates of the refugee ban on CNN with Sling TV. No cable required.

Although the “Frontline: Exodus” focuses its attention on stories about refugees entering Europe, it still does a powerful job telling the stories of refugees, period. Wherever you fall on the political spectrum, it is important to go beyond the numbers, the protests, and the political charades to learn the stories about people.  The stories about people who have had their homes ripped away from them. People who have suffered persecution, faced war, and have brushed death. These are real stories. These are important stories.

Stream the story of refugees impacted by the refugee ban executive order

The background on the refugee ban executive order and the global refugee crisis

Thousands of refugees and migrants fleeing war, persecution and hardship risk everything for a better life or to live at all. The refugees seek out safe harbor in European countries, the United States, and Canada every year. Only the blessed few actually escape their home countries. Those traveling to Europe take their lives in their hands as they hope and pray to safely cross the Mediterranean in anything but seaworthy, makeshift boats.

Over the last two years, more than 1.3 million people have arrived in Europe after crossing the Mediterranean. Nearly 9,000 have died or gone missing along the way.

“Frontline: Exodus” gives you never-before-seen access to the struggles of the refugee journey. Director James Bluemel combines his footage with video filmed by refugees and migrants themselves throughout the 2-hour special.

Frontline: Exodus aired for the first time last but is available today for streaming online. (PBS)

How to watch: you can watch right now online through the PBS website. Or your can stream it through the PBS app which is free.
