Playstation Vue is light years ahead in the Cord Cutting world.

I'm trying it out right now, I'm not that fond of the layout, but  :dunno: 

TBH honest, I may just cheap out with an OTA and use my P's log-in for WESPN and FSGO, they'll never need it; and then just Netflix and AMZTV.

I just talked to DirecTV. Not only do you have to have a DTV installer come and hook your smart TV up, there's still a $7 per TV charge.  So, no benefit of using your TV as a receiver over the mini-genie.

it really is, I mean once you are an actual sub you get access to pretty much everything thru the streaming apps and whatnot.  That is one nice thing about TWC is they let any roku act like a box but it is for live TV only.  I was hopping DirecTV Now might be the same for DirecTV subs but it appears to be a completely separate deal

I agree with you on the layout, but the lineup, the multi profile and cloud based dvr make the layout issues easy to live with compared to other providers.

Ala-Carte is here.   Just got off the phone with Charter, trying to dump CCTV:  All locals, plus 10 channels of my choice, plus HBO,  DVR, plus 100Mbps Internet for $80 bucks a month.   

Got NFL Sunday Ticket for Free on the App.

See Ya PSVue.

Definitely wait on DirecTV Now.  I'm currently on PSVue but figured I'd try DirecTV, so far I've been signed up for about 36 hours and still can't sign in.  They did take my money and are impossible to get a hold of.  I'm sure it will work out, but it's not starting out well.

Just saying guy, I don't know what your package was before but dish network and Directv both have multiple packages for less than that. If you're saving money I don't understand not getting the best value.

That's nuts. Why do you need internet that fast? I honestly have no clue what that's good for? Gaming?

I have shitty satellite internet and it says I get 12 Mbps, no way, capped at 20 gigs a month and I can't imagine using more than that, and we have a smart tv.

i pay $80 for internet that says it's 75, but never is anywhere close to that plus some shitty channels that come with it that i never watch because i don't have a tv.

i'd kill for dax's deal.
it’s hard to negotiate with no dick.
