Cutting the cord... going with YouTube TV
... and I'm looking for the best Memorial day deals on streaming devices compatible with YouTube TV.
Advice?

Sign up for three months of directv now and get an Apple TV for free. Then cancel after three months and sign up for YouTube tv.

They let you cancel and keep it?

Buy an AppleTV and get PS Vue instead.

Yes they let you keep it after you cancel. But you are prepaying for 3 months so may as well give the service a whirl.

I prefer a regular computer with a wireless keyboard/trackpad. Because I have a hard time dealing with the click lag associated with most devices and I can do much more than watch movies with it.

Just got YouTube TV. Love it so far. Only thing 'missing' is The Weather Channel.

re: Cutting the cord... going with YouTube TV
Are you looking for the least expensive solution, 4K support, stick, a device that integrates into your smartphone, tablet, PC ecosystem?

From Google's web site: https://tv.youtube.com/welcome/
quote:

TV: Stream with Google Chromecast or download our app on Roku, Apple TV, Android TV, Xbox One and supported Samsung and LG TVs.
Roku prices range from $30 - $100: https://www.roku.com/products

Chromecast prices range from $35 - $69: https://store.google.com/category/home_entertainment

Any of these will work.

Apple TV is a fine device but a little pricey.

No support from FireTV, surprise, surprise.

Yea honestly the only drawback I've experienced. Maybe we'll get that with the finals coming up?

NBA Finals are presented by YouTube tv so it'd be kinda shitty if some markets couldn't watch

Yeah but I think that is just how it goes until they can make a deal with the local network. I do enjoy the service though and having the DVR.

How much is the service after all the fees they don't tell you about?

There are no fees.

I got in at 34.99/month and my CC is charged exactly 34.99 each month.
