This is pretty much what happened to me.
My problems with Vue are there. They don't have the C-Span channels, I wish I could designate shows I want to keep past the 28-day mark, so that Vue would bypass those shows when doing its 28-day nuking thing, it is impossible in individual instances to request that the system record a rerun, as it will only record first-airs, etc. etc.
But I did an exhaustive survey of all the other OTT services when I decided to cut the cord last November, and I've been continually reviewing and updating my knowledge base on OTT services since, and the only one that didn't have deal-killer problems, so far, was Vue.
By way of illustration, here are my personal deal-killer problems with each of the other OTT services:
DirecTV Now: No DVR
Fubo TV: No CNN
Hulu Live TV: For a usable no-commercials DVR option, the monthly price is $55, which makes it non-competitive with cord TV.
Sling: No Fox News
Youtube TV: No CNN
At some point, one or more of those services may rectify the above problems. When and if they do, I could conceivably switch. I keep watch on those services on a regular basis, therefore, to see if any of that changes. Obviously I also keep an eye out for additional services that might come on the market.
