Hulu LiveTV, YouTubeTV, or SlingTV? Cutting the cord.
Cutting the cord. I have Netflix, Disney +, and just ordered an antenna. For live TV, what should I go with?

Looks like YoutubeTV has the better price. If I got Hulu Live I’d have to get the sports add on, unlimited receiver add on. YouTubeTV has3 weeks free trial promo for cyber week right now.

Not sure why people suggest Hulu over YTTV

I've had sling for a few years, thinking about switching to YTTV. It's not that much more expensive, and it looks to have more channels I like.

I know they kind of crack down on account sharing from different locations, locking out accounts that never log in from the home location. But does anyone know how they detect the home location? My MIL lives in my neighborhood, and we have the same ISP, and our IP addresses change pretty regularly. Do you think we could get away with sharing?

Does everything they air end up as VOD? Like can you watch anything after the fact, or do you have to set it to record ahead of time?

You have to set to record then it records all episodes old and new

YouTube TV. Hulu Live has a janky interface.

I've never had a single show turn to VOD on my DVR. I think that's a CBS thing for the first month or so for new users, then it goes away,

For the people on youtube tv is there a way to get the paramount network? Only reason I need that is for the show Yellowstone. We like that show and YTTV doesn't offer that channel.

No. I have philo as well because Youtube has a couple of channels missing that either me or my wife like.

Paying $70 between the two, but it's still a lot cheaper than what i was paying for DirecTV.

re: Hulu LiveTV, YouTubeTV, or SlingTV? Cutting the cord.
For whatever reason it appears to my eye that Hulu with live TV has a better picture quality than YouTube TV.

I really REALLY want to go with FuboTV but their lack of ESPN is what's keeping me from pulling the trigger. Guess that's probably the same for most.
I love that they're pushing the envelope by getting live streams in 4k occasionally. I'd like to reward those type companies with my business/money.

re: Hulu LiveTV, YouTubeTV, or SlingTV? Cutting the cord.
Looking at the same thing myself.
Probably going to try all of them out. Use each service for about 3 months and get a good comparison.

Sling has the shows my kids currently watch, 3 streams, and is the most flexible to add or drop content.

Hulu has tons of content. So, I can cancel netflix.
Also, they allow you to download content to be watched offline.
You can pay to cancel commercials.
It offers parental control.
Finally, it's the only package that can expand to unlimited devices. I imagine this will be valuable during the holidays when the house is full with visitors (or the kids using every tv in the house at once).

Youtube TV is straight forward. $50 with $12 option to cancel most commercials. Infinite DVR.

--------
Based on my needs, all 3 clock in around $60/mo. Still a substantial savings for me.
But there doesn't really seem to be a clear winner based on features or price.

- Sling has to use HD antenna for locals and has to FF through commercials.
- Hulu & Youtube TV don't have the kids channels I want.
Hulu can be the most expensive, but allows me to dump netflix. And I can just buy movies to put on the ipad instead of having to hassel with the offline option.


Maybe demo'ing them all will make it quite clear. Either from a stream quality, user interface, or other factor.

I really want to go with Hulu live because of the unlimited screens. The drawback to me is that it's locked down to you're home network, which doesn't help me out because I want to use it at the camp.

Isn't this feature an extra $10 a month?

We have YTTV, and while you're only allowed 3 screens, we use it at the camp
