It seems that everyone is moving to internet based TV. YouTube TV, Sling, Hulu Live Tv, DirectTV Now, etc. What is DISH doing?
I'm not getting the question.... DISH has Sling TV, and if you have satellite then Dish anywhere or gives you access to many network/channel sites. What is it they don't have that Direct tv does aside from higher Direct tv prices?
Since day one. Or perhaps more accurately bundling was a prerequisite, on a smaller scale, in the negotiations for getting any of these online services launched.I wonder how long it will take for the content providers to start demanding product bundling in their streaming contracts, just as they do with cable and satellite carriers.
What service were you using that did this? I have experienced in the past on Directv Now and Sling. I have not on PS Vue, and honestly cant think of a time that I have with Hulu Live (although I have not used it enough to make a reasonable statement to that as a fact)Internet based TV isn't for everyone. I have DSL 15mg (my only option) which is sufficient for streaming HD but during prime time when everyone is streaming, it gets overloaded and constantly buffering if not failing outright.

I don’t think satellite will be just for rural areas.. I say that because some cable companies equipment is so awful, satellite would be preferred. For example, Charter (in a legacy Time Warner Cable area) has the worse equipment imaginable. They don’t offer discounts for bundles for existing customers after the promo. You pay full price after that.. or cancel. Charter is my last choice for TV.
