Question Ala cart

Jul 30, 2023
I've cut the 'cord' as it relates to cable or satellite providers. I now subscribe to YouTube TV (mainly because of NFL Sunday Ticket. Didn't know they would offer it ala cart). But I find myself rarely watching it. We're either watching Peacock, Paramount +, Netflix or something else. Plus I have FOX, NBC, ABC, CW, CBS, Bounce, Defy, Grit and ION OTA. My big catch is, even though I have ESPN+, the basic ESPN channels and the SEC Network require a provider. This leads me to two questions: 1, do you know if there is a way to get those channels without a provider? Question 2, do you know if there are plans for FOX and ABC to follow NBC and CBS with their Peacock and Paramount + apps. My only drawback to watching the OTA's is not having the ability to record. I did try Sling but not being able to watch ESPN on multiple TV's was a killer.
Thanks in advance.
