1. It's more that I don't see the value of paying $55 a month for a few games a week but will if there aren't better alternatives
2. Kinda minor but the streaming services don't off surround sound yet which makes me value the streaming service even lower
3. Those 'free streams' are garbage. Quality varies and often buffer and it's not a good experience for someone who just wants to get on the couch and watch a big screen.

But yeah, short of routing specific traffic to a distant friend/family to circumvent nba blackout rules, it doesn't seem like there is a good a la carte option.

When will we get access in Europe to the O-Sen ???


As a reminder; this is my O-Sen experience since beginning 25 May 2018.

Well, today at least the UK leaves the EU on 31 October. Does that mean on 1 November I can read O-Sen stories??

nope, the UK is a major pusher/adopter of GDPR also.

until it gets tested further in court, things like this will happen

Use gearstv with kodi. Gives access to all sports ppv games and live tv channels. Other than that I think there is still a discord for nbastreams

oh it costs 15$ a month

Between Youtube.tv and Pluto.tv, there is more tv to watch than cable can offer.

unless its changed, my only issue with PSVue is that you can only watch on 2 tv's/devices at the same time. Youtube you can watch on 6 at the same time.
