    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.

    Still enjoying YouTube TV? No issues with FSAZ and Suns games? I'm probably going that route after Vue shuts down next month. Sticking around to finish the NFL season because of Redzone on Vue.

    YouTube TV has all FSAZ Suns and D-backs. Best stream quality, awesome unlimited DVR, great on demand content, and a killer mobile app. If you liked Vue you will LOVE YouTube TV
