Streaming TV providers


Recommended Posts


I have DirectTV now. I get a steep discount since I have ATT unlimited phone service so it works for my limited tv needs, which I don’t really watch. Mainly for The wife. I had regular direct tv before it and had the correct local sports networks. I should have Fox sports Carolinas since I’m smack dab in the middle of NC but for some reason I get the Atlanta area networks. They are utterly useless when I called and tried to explain to them the problem. Thankful fox sports go had me in the correct market and good luck trying to tell them that It’s their problem not fox’s.

I love the Sports Pack on PS Vue. I have ALL the regional fox networks and many NBC ones as well. It blacks out games but I can watch pregame, postgame and other programming like Royals Weekly or whatever they call it. Almost every team in every sport, it is a great add-on for  $10 a month. Also comes with Red Zone during NFL season in that.

Yes, everything except Xbox.

 

And no other live tv streaming service [except for Pluto, which is free] will work on PlayStation.

 

Making the switch to YouTube TV has been great for me. Made easier by the fact I can use it through my TV directly so I don't even have to have my Xbox running. Saving that power!

I have an AppleTV which all of them use as far as I know. They all have their own little flaws like I don't like the Vue guide that much. Some people do but for me, I preferred the guide on DTVNow. Vue has been the best overall though IMO when factoring in a DVR. If you don't need a DVR, then YouTube is probably best.

YouTube has a DVR too.

 

I'm not the biggest fan of the YTTV guide either, but for me, biggest thing about it [and of course it's same with Vue] is that it has MLB Network. Channel order customizability is also very nice.

I know it has a DVR but it replaces the DVR stuff with on-demand quickly especially CBS shows so it essentially doesn't have one.

What do u mean? And how soon? 

 

YouTubeTV replaces CBS DVR shows within a couple of hours of broadcast, if you wait until the next day it'll be on-demand and you have to watch commercials. Other networks are about a week before that happens.

 

Vue doesn't do that.

Ohhh. I assume it's only for networks that have on demand content?

Yes. Any others would remain as DVR content. So if you record a Marlins game for instance, I assume it'd stay but I can't guarantee that because I didn't have it during baseball season.

Good to know, thanks for the info. Finally cut cable this week when my Direct TV promotion ended. The price difference is astronomical. I can subscribe to 3 streaming services at the same time for the price of my cable.
