I tried Directv NOW and hated it, very unreliable.

Thinking of trying PS Vue next. Who has it and how it?

I've had it, it's alright, it was missing a few things from what I remember. Although I could be wrong, was probably Sling missing stuff. Currently on Hulu Live.

PS Vue was too expensive for me. I've been using DTVNow since its launch in 2017 it had his hiccups but lately it's been stable before DTVNow had SlingTV. only reason I switched to DTVNow was MLBNetwork

The DVR sucks. Maybe you don’t use it much?

I still use VCR is that tells you much?

jokes asides you're right I don't use their DVR as often. most of the times if missed a show i would watch it on-demand from their Library or directly from the network

Yeah that was my main issue with it. The DVR sucks and I need a reliable DVR. It would either not record a show at all or record a different show I didn't ask it to record.

I use YouTubeTV. I have zero complaints about it. I absolutely love it.

The only concern for me there is they replace the DVR content with VOD fast I read especially CBS shows. I detest commercials and don't want to be forced to watch them if other services have a DVR that doesn't do that.

DirecTV has been garbage since AT&T bought them out. This is truth.

Looking at the channels now and it has a good bit more than Hulu Live. Considering it ...

I do like Hulu's on demand library but could probably just get the $9/mo one.

Good thing about all of them is the lack of a contract, can switch back and forth monthly.

Indeed.

Although ... Hulu's On Demand stuff is pretty much entirely from the networks they provide. Does YouTube TV also have that? Say for a show on ABC that I'd want to watch.

YouTube seems to be the best for On Demand.

Alrighty then. I'll discuss with my roommate and see what he thinks [since he'll be paying for half of it!]

And it says six accounts per household ... so roommate can have his account and I can have mine and be on the same plan. That'd be a good.

Yeah another thing I hated about DTVNow, everyone shared the same account
