Hulu live sucks. Just an awful platform. Horrible DVR, the guide is never right, can't skip commercials. I tried it for a year and I'm done.

Going back to DirecTV.

Edit: Oh and the 30 second delay **** sucks during live sporting events. Seriously, **** Hulu.

The only streaming option is at&t now which requires a 2 year contract? Can't believe the NBA is dumb enough to take their product off of YTTV and Hulu. Does anyone know anyone under 45 with a cable box?

Just had to sign up with Spectrum. I feel dirty. Their customer service is still abysmal. 7 day free trial. I hope YTTV still pulls off a deal.

Att TV Now doesn’t require a contract. Not cheap, since you need the “Max” level to get regional sports, but it includes HBO Max access.

The delay is a killer.

Seemed like when these streaming options came out there were at least a small discount over cable. Is anyone actually saving money on them anymore? I never saw any advantage to them besides savings. I also can't stand behind behind while watching live sports. Assuming you have multiple cable options, just bounce between them on deals. It does suck having to pay so much when really all we use them for is sports.

I feel like the main savings is still in having multiple tvs and dvr and not paying all the stupid fees cable charges for add ons

I guess that makes sense it you want multiple tvs with cable. I was stuck in the mindset of my main tv having cable and that's it. I pay cable just to watch sports. It's such a waste.

Has anyone had any experience with VidGo? Appears to have Fox RSN. $10 for 2 months, then $55 after that.

wHy ArE ouR rAtings dOWn? Well **** heads anyone who's a cable cutter can't watch their local games. It's absolutely ridiculous and I'm now just going to pirate all nba games even the national stuff.

I signed up for YouTube TV last night for the NBA season and told it I lived in Milwaukee. I'm hoping this works, but it already gave me a popup asking why I'm not in Milwaukee right now.

YoutubeTV twitter response this morning compared to yesterday.

Thanks for the tag – we weren’t able to reach a new deal that would allow us to keep FOX Sports Ohio in our line up. However, you can send your suggestions or thoughts using the YouTube TV app by tapping your profile photo > Send feedback

Yesterday

Thanks for the tag – we can't speculate if or when FOX Sports North will be relaunched on YouTube TV, but we'll let you know once we have any updates. We're here if you have any other questions.

Seems like they will not be back in the near future.

With Youtube TV you can split the account with Friends/Family. I split my account with a friend. 3 streams at a time limit, but we've never run into an issue. So yes, in this case we're saving a fair chunk.

Obviously no FSWI at the moment but hoping for something soon.

If you're looking to watch Bucks, YouTube TV doesn't have them.

No, no real savings anymore. They're laughing about it. I do like not having as many cords and boxes.

That sucks.

YouTube TV works out to around $10-13 per game for the nationally televised games, and League Pass (Team Pass) closer to $3. Even though the national games are generally better games, I'll probably cancel YTTV after this first month and do quantity over quality.

Really hope YouTube gets this Fox regional figured out, I’ve about had it with Spectrums over priced tv package. Unfortunately they are the only way to see the Bucks and the Brewers at the moment
