    Cord cutting advice for heavy DVR user

    I haven't found anything that would make me give up my Hopper 3. Tried YTTV for a month,S don't like the guide or way it "records" everything. So easy on the H3,'s it's as good as anything unlimited. My Hopper is half full, 2T ehd full. Hate to throw away all those recordings. I'm only paying...

    The YouTube TV Thread

    Signed up for a month to see if wife can get use to interface. Currently on Dish Hopper/Joey. Looks like it's not going to happen. 1. No way to get program description while scrolling through live guide. 2. Most shows, movies added to DVR won't commercial skip. 3. Have to subscribe to Philo to...

    YouTube TV Becomes First Streamer to Carry PBS

    If Spectrum Choice would get more like other streamers (easy to sign up, easy to cancel, not add fees), I think they'd be a very good choice. $25 for all locals and subs, plus 10 of anything else you want. And you can also add HBO Go for $7.50. Good addition to Philo (or just free Pluto).

    Streaming is about to get very expensive

    I've about decided to keep Dish Flex pack, drop movie pack and add Philo - this adds Hallmark for wife, and a few other channels I like (AXS, Animal, GSN, Sundance). Cost still under $100, Dvr and guide are better, and existing recordings are not lost. My gut says in a year or less cutting the...

    $12.99 Bundle for Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+

    Would be great if you could add unlimited streams and dvr to Hulu base. Will probably subscribe to Disney one month a year. I'd buy Hulu no ads with unlimited screens if available.

    AirTV introduced AirTV Mini

    Yeah, looks like it needs the black box, another $80. How is this different from a Roku? Waiting for the Airtv quad with updated processor. Currently have dual Tablo that's fine, but if I cut the cord, I'll ned 4 tuners and something more similar to a Hopper3.

    Hallmark Movies Now? - HAPPY WIFE, HAPPY LIFE

    I have an LG smart TV, real easy to access most apps. Mainly use Prime and Vudu for apps. Have an old roku2 (I think) on tv in a guest room for app viewing for guests. "Wife's tv" is a Joey, she's happy with Dish as long as I keep movie pack (bargain for $10), which has her HM Movies &...

    Hallmark Movies Now? - HAPPY WIFE, HAPPY LIFE

    Just tried YTTV with hm now. Wife didn't like it at all (after 5 minutes of browsing). She likes all the mysteries on Hallmark M&M. She couldn't find any of them. We subscribed today, and cancelled today. Returning the Roku I bought tomorrow. YTTV guide sucks. Sent from my ONEPLUS A5010 using...

    Cord cutting still subpar

    Agreed. Just tried YTTV. The guide has a long way to go! If I added all the Roku channels I'd need to get what we have on Dish, the total cost would be equivalent ($88). A Hopper and a Joey is so much faster to maneuver around. Now if Roku could have one guide that merged channels (from 3 or 4...

    The YouTube TV Thread

    Well I'm trying the new Premier Plus, and WiFi connection seems string. Sure takes getting use to the schedule! Not sure if I can convince the wife. After playing with an hour, I'm liking it. First hurdle is wife needs Hallmark, so I added Hallmark Now to my channels, but logging into Hallmark...

    The YouTube TV Thread

    Going to try Youtube soon, need to buy a Roku. Is the streaming stick plus the best option for a tv about 40' from router (2 walls)? 1080 tv now but would like the 4k option. Or is the new Premier plus a good option? Sent from my ONEPLUS A5010 using Tapatalk

    Cord cutting still subpar

    Buying your own space (say 1gb for $25/yr.) would be a nice Youtube DVR option. Where any recordings could be kept permanently (or as long as you pay). Sent from my ONEPLUS A5010 using Tapatalk

    Question about savings as a cord cutter

    I keep getting Spectrum "pick 10" offers for $22/mo, but I need about 15 or so. If it was pick 20 for $30 or $35 it'd be a deal. A totally a la cart deal at $4-$5 per channel would be sweet. YT+Philo+Hallmark Movies might satisfy wife and I, may try the free week or so (once I but a roku)...

    Question about savings as a cord cutter

    Still finding it difficult to leave Dish Flex pack. Basic pack, with movie pack, with Hopper 3 and Joey, still under $100 total. EHD full of movies. Dish Anywhere on 3rd seldom used tv. If Youtube added Hallmark,, I'd probably consider it, since wife "needs" that channel. Sent from my ONEPLUS...

    Spectrum Choice

    Anyone tried Spectrum Choice yet? Seems like a good deal, choice of 10 channels with locals $22, plus all 5 premium movie bundle $15, 2 year. Curious about on demand, haven't been on cable for 25 years. No DVR, but if you can view recent shows on demand, may not be necessary. I'm already on...

    PS VUE + AMAZON PRIME + TABLO

    Yeah, but do they deliver in 2 days and on Sundays? Sometimes you just need it free and fast. USPS on eBay can take a long time. They've got to be losing money on half the $5 stuff I order! 6P - AVR5810 - EF9500 - Dish - Xbox1S

    PS VUE + AMAZON PRIME + TABLO

    I've ordered 32 items since January, some actually delivered on a Sunday! Their HDR prime content is better than Netflix. With the free music and books, is amazing they make as much money as they do. I'm prime for life. Starting to consider Vue, but finally got my Dish Bill to around $90 with...
