So an $8.00 increase in the price. I am afraid that these streaming services like Youtube TV are on the same path as linear cable/satellite with the hikes. They are going to price themselves right out of business. The whole reason people cord cut is to pay less and Youtube TV is following the same path of higher price hikes. I think the future will be ota dvrs like Tablo and TV Anywhere with Sling TV and hook it with the subscription of your choice and that will change depending on what show is on the service. It isn't about the channel any more, it is about the program. I wonder how long till they offer the individual programs Ala cart and let people save even more money.
The box fees are the biggest saving, normally I have two that are used everyday, Living Room and the outdoor theater where I watch regular TV in the mornings ( usually news) while on the Life Cycle.
But then I have areas with infrequent use, my bedroom, game room and dining room.
Then 5 other bedrooms that are never used unless I have guests, which I did the last holidays, had a full house over Thanksgiving and this year will be the same, since I am in Florida, everyone wants to come here.
So that is 10 boxes total, which would cost me almost a, roughly, extra $70 a month with DirecTV, Dish, etc, YTTV provided me with the 4K with unlimited TVs option, which I turned on when the guests were here, turned off when they left.
Cannot do that with Dish ( unless I buy the boxes which is another expense) or DirecTV, so that saves me a extra, roughly, $840 a year on top of the service.
