You have to pick the DVR version, it gives you the option of either.So I’ve had my hopper unplugged for the last week and have YouTubeTV running on an AppleTV.
The more I use it the more I like it.
Live tv is great, no complaints.
Recordings are good. My only issue with recordings is that a lot of the shows that I normally record are recorded as video on demand. The only issue with this is that with VOD there are commercials that can’t be skipped.
For me that is the only downside compared to Dish.
There are many of us that for various reasons, mostly related to lack of good Internet service availability, hope that "dinosaur" lasts a long while...
In case anybody here is wondering what these instructions pertain to, they pertain to YouTubeTV running on an AppleTV.When you select the episode of the show you want to watch, look below it. Often you can click and it will give you the option to select the DVR version or the VOD version. Select the DVR and you can skip the adds.
It's not that I want 250 channels. I only watch about 20-25 of them on any kind of a regular basis. The problem is the way the packages are set up. There are 2-3 channels I like that are only in the Top 250 package.Unless you have nightmare scenarios with Dish (terrible reception, faulty used equipment), you can't beat it. It is not perfect. Few annoying issues here and there.
Before cancelling it, try few streamers free and decide. You can also downsize the dish package. Who needs over 250 channels?
Tried that a couple of weeks ago. The chat rep was completely useless. Couldn't offer me any kind of discounts despite being a 20+ year customer. The only option he could offer was to drop to a lower package.Go through Chat first to try and quickly ascertain your available discount options. Of the benefits cost wise for Dish, I have found the discounts on premiums (the one's left) are a decent carrot.
