    I actually loved Vue. Again, my problem was they kept jacking up the price without adding new content or features. That's when I jumped shipped.

    Yeah this is a major bummer. I love their dvr setup. I’ve looked into youtube tv as an alternative. Only problem is they don’t have redzone. If I have time I like watching redzone while waiting for the Cards game to start.

    Disney owns Hulu now so they'll also be offering bundles with Disney Plus, Hulu & ESPN.

    Dumped DISH after they flubbed HBO and CBS. I have been using YouTube TV for about two months and am pretty satisfied with it. It has the channels I want and the price is about 40% of what I was paying for DISH.

    I get occasional buffering, but that's not been a big deal for me.

    Well that’s good to hear. I don’t mind buffering, as I don’t often watch anything not dvr’d.

    Shows that are “DVRd” on Youtubetv are still streamed.

    I recently dumped Sling after they lost Fox Sports AZ. I've since signed up with YouTube TV and split the cost with a friend.

    With Vue it only happens when we’re watching a live broadcast.

    Have you guys checked out PlutoTV? It is a free app for iOS/Android/PS4 at the very least. It has hundreds of 'channels' where you can watch TV. Don't think of it like regular channels. They have a Forensic Files channel where they show Forensic Files 24 hours a day. They have dozens of these types of channels. They also have about 100 movie channels as well. Channels for news, sports, music, etc.

    I find myself watching it quite a bit, especially since it is free.

    I received a notice from AT&T TV Now (DirecTV Now) that my subscription cost will increase to $60 per month starting in December. I've had the same package, and it was $35 per month not so long ago. I should've cut them out a while back. I guess I'll do it now.
