Default ISO DiretvNOW replacement

Bassturds are raising the price $10/mon starting in May...might as well have cable again at this point. What other live tv stream services are good?

Dammit. I'm on Directv too. Was looking tow switch in November when my contract is up, but if the price is going up again it might be sooner.

Had DirecTv Now for 4 months. Terrible interface. Terrible service. Have had Playstation Vue for 7 months now. It's much much better.

We also have an outdoor OTA antenna in the attic with a Tablo 2 tuner DVR which is also great for local stations and whenever the internet feed is out.

I started out with DirecTV now. Hated that they didn't have dvr at the time and it was laggy. Tried a free trial of psvue. It worked perfect and had dvr. Start paying per month, psvue always locking up and laggy. It wasn't an internet or equipment issue because other streaming services worked fine. Decide to try DirecTV now again. Free trial no issues and they have dvr now. Dump psvue and start paying for DirecTV now. Guess what? Laggy bullshit starts again and now they're going up and cutting channels. Can't use YouTube tv as i have firestick. Currently checking out limitless streams.

I checked with Tago, unfortunately, they only have one feed per network, so no.

I have had sling, PSVue, and youtube TV. Youtube TV has the best interface and unlimited DVR for 40 bucks. You can store anything and it keeps it for 9 months. So I added Law and order to it and have all the episodes broken out by season. Very cool. It also has the primary local channels. The espn channels as well as the SEC Network. I also have an outside yagi antenna connected to a tablo dvr. It works really well. The Tablo is a networked DVR so it is accessed through your Roku or Fire sticks the same as Youtube TV. So you can leave all the TVs on the same input regardless of what they want to watch. So no changes needed on inputs for Netflix, Amazon, Tablo and Youtube TV. Very easy for the wife and kids to use.
