    Are you saying that not everyone will switch because of the fees?

    i am saying streaming companies will start adding more fees, and their prices will rise to be equal to cable/sat

    OK. And you think that will happen before the traditional linear providers go out of business?

    I'm on a three month Dish pause while I try out youtube tv. Youtube tv is certainly more clunky when it comes to channel changing and such but it's still pretty good. If I decide to go back I guess I'll either try to negotiate or switch to Direct. What do you do with your equipment if you cancel?

    We heard about Osprey a very long time AGO.
    Every ATT exec seems to have his own ideas about what's going to happen. One thing you can probably be certain of, ATT will make a mess of it.

    Prices did go up but so did Dish ( and Direct, Comcast and the rest ).

    As far as streams go, not all services charges extra, Vue you get 5 at no extra charge, You Tube TV gets 3, Hulu and Dnow charge extra, have no idea what Sling charges, I have no interest.

    For me, the channel changing on YTTV wasn't all that bad, and the PQ was certainly good. It was just navigating to the content I wanted to watch/record/delete/whatever took so many clicks of the remote, and I felt like they could put a lot more information on the screen than they do. The DVR functionality on YTTV was oversimplified and resulted in too much scrolling through to find the thing I wanted to watch. Finally, the trick play was just ok. If I didn't have to FF commercials, like on Netflix or Prime, I wouldn't care, but with live TV, being able to skip commercials is a key function that I want to work as well as possible. It clearly works for a lot of people, and I say good for them, but it isn't for me at this point.

    With Sling, it is 1, 3, or 4 streams, depending on which package or combination of packages you have.

    Curious, why no interest when you tried all those others?

    I wonder if it will get better? I bought a couple of the new Roku's and I'm trying to learn how to use it on YTTV.
