Default Anyone using YoutubeTV?

This could be what I needed to finally cut the cord. For $35/mo you get all of the following broadcast channels and unlimited DVR, shared with up to 6 accounts!

No but really... am I missing something? I mean, $35 seems a TINY bit high, but still way cheaper than my $250/mo Comcast bill that would shrink down to what, $130/mo for the highest speed internet available?

I had a friend try this and there was a lot of buffering. This was right at the beginning so maybe they worked that out.

I'm using Playstation Vue and it's $39/month but pretty much the same channel list. I think it's worth it. May try the YoutubeTV for a couple months to see if I like it.

Add $50 onto whatever internet plan from Comcast for unlimted data. You only get 1TB of traffic now. Streaming everything is going to add up fast.

I had it. Worked great. I dislike using my phone as a remote but other than that no complaints.
You have unlimited DVR and it plays back without commercials. They started with 35 channels and have added more on without jacking the price up.
The only reason I canceled is because I'm still on contract with comcast and even when that is over if I switch to just internet and then youtubetv I will be paying more.
I told the wife once google fiber is in our area (roughly $70) and then youtube tv for $35 I'm all in!
Get the HD chromcast though if you don't have it built into your tv.
It hardly seemed to buffer at all, I have a 75mb connection. Most times it was great. I can't recall a time where I hated it.

So this begs the question. When will comcast see the writing on the wall and drop prices? I haven't had cable or internet since April and would like to go a cheaper route than the $150+ we were paying comcast.

I asked about that, they said there's a 12mo special for $25/mo unlimited data. Currently, I'm hitting a max of like 600gb, probably averaging around 450.

I wonder how much this will increase when running full video for all TVs through Youtube...

I wish my Comcast was just $150/mo... I'm currently paying ~$250/mo.

I'm going to call here in a minute and see if there's anything they can do to drop my price.

In the same boat, if my Comcast bill was $150 a month I wouldn't give a shit, but still have yet to cut the cord... You'd think they would figure it out and lower their prices but I think they'll likely just jack up their internet price or some crap.

Somehow Comcast sold me on a package that basically unlocks all channels for 3 TVs, gives me 150mbps internet, the home automation package and phone services. All in for like $190/mo...

I think I can accept a bill <$200/mo....

How long though? I hate calling and having to re up every year or so. I am lucky I am on what I have since they like to tell me to pound sand.

Default Anyone using YoutubeTV?

We apparently out here have the lowest Comcast prices in the nation. Because thereís independent fiber thatís through our city.

Anyway, we have literally every channel, including HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, DVR for two TVs, all sports channels, 250mb speed internet WITH their dual band router, and an entire home security system....

For 145 a month. Two year guaranteed price lock. Itís unbelievable.

Once that goes away and we move Iíll look into this though.

12mo for right now, with her suggesting there should be no issue continuing the same price at the end of the 12mo. If it goes up again, I'll cancel.

Anyone suspect that new Roku hardware is coming out soon? Prices are dropping and Amazon is labeling every model with a (2017) at the end...

To take advantage of the reduced prices, or wait for the new hardware...
