    Any internet with 25Mb/s is good enough for any of the services. The lowest my internet provider offers is 100mb. i dont have a tv.. i have 60 a month for internet and 13 a month for prime. I have been doing this for 5 years now. No one needs television stations. Even if you love sports you can get espn + thru disney.. which is 12.99. and you get disney + hulu and espn + so it is still cheaper than having 300 stations that you rarely watch and always go.. theres nothing on…

    OTA with Firerecast is the best free TV.
    It is seamless with Pluto, OTA and your DVR.
    All free.
    That’s why I’m quitting the 2 time fee raiser HULU live
    $39 to $55 with nothing new added.
    Rip-off
    BTW, remember this you don’t need amazon prime for all the free streaming

    We cut the cord in early 2017. Since then, we have subscribed to PS Vue, ATT TV Now (DirecTV Now), Hulu live and YouTube TV. Of the four services, YouTube TV has been the top performer with Hulu live a close second. Virtually no buffering or freezing on YTTV that we saw with the other three services plus the UI is the absolute best. YTTV just added PBS so we are very satisfied with this service.

    I canceled cable and investigated all the major streaming services. I chose Hulu Live because they had ESPN and all the major channels. I wanted NFL and college football and Hulu had it all. Sling didn’t have ESPN, so that was a deal breaker. I also pay for Prime Video, Netflix, HBO Now, and STARZ. I use my Apple TV box as the headquarters for all of this. Hulu Live doesn’t have the Weather Channel, which Sling has, but having all the ESPN channels made the choice easy for Hulu. Of course, I watch YouTube stuff 80% of the time.

    I have a couple questions. I have PlayStation Vue but it's shutting down on the 31st. I'm going to switch to YouTube TV. My internet has a dynamic IP address that changes every so often which causes me location id issues with PS Vue. PS Vue commonly says i'm in a different location when I'm home.
    1) When I change to YTTV, will this continue to happen?
    2) If so, is there any way to get around this?
    3) Should I call my internet provider & purchase a static IP address that doesn't change? Would prefer not to pay extra if I don't have to.
    Thanks, great vid.

    Sorry but this review missed a lot.

    – You didn’t make it clear which service offered local channels and how many. That’s a big deal if you can’t use an antenna. Sling maybe offers one or two in few markets.

    – You didn’t mention Hulu charges extra for their dvr to fast forward thru commercials… That changes the price when comparing it to YouTube… who also includes unlimited recordings.

    Cable TV or any TV is a ripoff if you have to pay for reception. there's sites that will tell you how many over the air channels are available where you live (some tell you fewer than what are actually available). In my area next to Disneyland, there's 158 channels free thru antenna reception. I receive 153 of them by using an amp like the one shown @2:20 and using it on a RCA Rabbit ears found on AMAZON (about $20). With every $50 I save each month, I experiment with different indoor antennas (rabbit ears still best- with amp.) I also bought 2 additional TV'S. right now watching 3 TV'S in addition to my MAC. The big screen is PGA golf (cbs) the 22" inch is on Comet and the 14" (battery operated) is on a movie (ch.13). You'll be amazed how cheap smaller tv's are. Everything I bought cost less than $400 (except big screen) you would have spent on cable. Big rule; don't throw bad antennas away- they all can help capture the signal thru experiment.

    I really want to like Sling more but the hard limit one stream for orange is an absolute deal breaker (the limit even applies to the specific channel app like espn). I'm curious to see what NFL network does now that PSVue is gone. PSVue was the best but it wasn't marketed well. Looking like Youtube TV is the best all around now.

    FYI people, FuboTV does not have ESPN. How a service known for sports channels is missing that one is inexcusable. It also does not have FX channels. Finally, you must pay $6 extra if you want DIY channel which I like to watch. That $6 also gets you several other channels which I don't care about. This smacks of something the big cable companies like Comcast have been doing for years and is one reason cord cutting is so popular now. Makes me wonder if I want to cut the cord. Take your time and do a lot of research before diving in.

    For me, the perfect combo is YouTube TV plus Philo. The channels lacking on YouTube TV are on Philo. I don’t think Philo should really ever be considered as a stand alone package for most people but it is a fantastic buy for $20. I also have commercial free Hulu with HBO added, Netflix, Amazon Prime, CBS All Access, Apple TV, Pluto TV, Curiosity Stream, Epix, Sundance Now, and a bit of Crackle. Am I saving money – not really but I have predictable quality programming that is mostly high resolution in an easy to use format (Roku). I am also surprised at how little internet speed you need to make this work. I have 40 Mbs DSL service that in reality is about 17 Mbs. Buy a few Roku Ultra’s, install a high speed SD card in each, good to go. Give the local cable company the finger and enjoy TV again.

    I was on Sling, then PSVue, and now Fubo. Fubo has an option to increase your number of streams to 3, vice their default of 2, and to boost your DVR hours to 500. Of course, you pay for both concessions. Fubo's interface sucks: no screencaps when fast-forwarding; no browsing channels while watching live programs (except on ROKU); no "back" button/function–you must go thru the entire guide to return to the previous channel; and no recording option on Showtime channels. Additionally, all the channels come in at 720p, though the sports channels are all aired at 60fps. I like that they have Viacom and Disney channels, but for the money and interface you would have to be an avid sports fan to accept their limited interface. (P.s. i cannot record shows or browse easily on my tablet, which was something altogether new to me.)

    I’ve been a cord cutter for a year and a half now. I’ve tried YTTV, Sling, Philo, Fubo and IPTV.

    IPTV- Can’t record, buffers and locals aren’t true locals.

    Sling- No locals for me. Awesome but no locals. They used to have Fox and NBC now nothing for me.

    YTTV- Awesome but missing A&E and Lifetime plus their VOD and Movies on demand are limited and definitely not as large as Hulu…Plus VOD/ Movies have commercials. Excellent DVR but that’s all.

    Philo- Awesome for new cord cutters. 30 day DVR free, VOD is available but hard to navigate their interface to find them. No locals, no sports.

    FuboTV- Has every channel you need. VOD is not huge. Buffers. For the price I was frustrated with FuboTV due to buffering and being catapulted to the beginning of a VOD/Movie if I tried to FFW. Also you have to click click click in 15 second intervals to FFW and there are no tiles to see where you end up if you record a program. Cancelled 2 days into my free trial.

    Hulu Live – All the major networks, Huge VOD/ Movie Library, Hulu Originals, Locals and sports. Awesome HD quality and even watching in 720p it is superb.I currently with Hulu Live and enjoying all the juicy movies and VOD. I have the Hulu Live no ads. Absolutely enjoying their interface. Very easy to surf and find movies or VOD which makes binging easy. Worth every penny!

    STAY AWAY FROM FUBO! What they say they offer they actually don't. Channels don't work and when you try to correct it they can't. I signed up to be able to watch a sporting event the night I signed up. Fubo couldn't get it working for me so I didn't get to use their program to watch. They didn't cancel me like they said they would. They charge you 59.99 and WILL NOT FOR ANY REASON give you a refund even though THEY don't offer the service they advertise. Don't trust the "try" it you will get charged and there is NO getting it back. I SPOKE TO SARA WHO THEN TRANSFERRED ME TO HER MANAGER WHO SAID THE SAME THING…SORRY YOU STUCK WITH THE CHARGE OF 59.99 EVEN THOUGH OUR SERVICE DIDN'T WORK!

    I was a LONG time fan and subscriber of DirecTV for 20+ years. Their service kept going down and down and their prices kept going up and up. I did a three month trial of YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV and DirecTV Now and I went with Hulu with Live TV and absolutely love it. I chose Hulu because I was already a subscriber of their commercial free Hulu service so we watch all our network shows commercial free, albeit one day later. I added on the Hulu Live TV option because that adds most all of my TV into one app and interface. It just makes it easier and we simply love it. We also have Prime Video, Netflix and CBS All Access, but are most likely going to cancel Netflix because we just don't seem to watch it as much. For us, Hulu with Live TV was definitely the way to go. Thanks for such a great video and impartial review of all the major services!

    Directv is a mess now. The app is a joke. They took away every ESPN related channel. I cancelled it and now have YouTubetv.

    Now YouTube TV is losing Fox Sports Regional Networks.

    Looks like this only affects YouTube TV. The others, Fubo and Sling have both resolved their matters with Fox Sports Regional Networks (RSN). And while RSN swears that the cost elevation is beyond their control, they've tried to work with YouTube TV, but to no avail. Looks like YouTube TV has to be blamed, too.

    Sinclair: “We offered YouTube TV the best terms under which their competitors carry our regional sports networks,” a spokesperson said. “Unfortunately, they alone decided to drop these channels citing ‘rising costs’ despite our offer to actually lower the fees they pay us. We also offered to continue negotiating under a short-term extension so that their subscribers could continue to watch their favorite hometown teams. They’ve not yet responded to this offer. Given the ease with which YouTube TV subscribers can drop the service and switch providers, we are surprised that they’ve chosen this course.”

    Now, surely there's more to it than this, but Sinclair reduced their fees and offered YouTube TV an extension and worse, YouTube TV hasn't responded and in my book, that's damning.

    Here's another indication of bad faith by YouTube TV:

    "YouTube TV hasn’t indicated that any price reductions will result due to Sinclair pulling its networks. So you’re paying the same $49.99 — but now for less content. “At the very least, you have to imagine YouTube TV will be receiving lots of questions from subscribers asking about how much they intend to lower the subscription fee given that they are removing some of the most popular and in-demand programming they carry,” the Sinclair spokesperson said.

    No matter who's right on the matter with Sinclair, if YouTube TV doesn't substantially lower pricing to equate to the loss of all those channels, then they're unscrupulous and gouging.
