I've had the DTVNow service since it launched back on Nov 30th. I've had Directv service since 2002 and have always been an early adopter of everything they have offered, including the 5 tuner Genie DVR which I'm currently on my last month by contract.
I was hoping that DTVNow would be the answer to allow me to trade in my Genie for a streaming solution. However, although the PQ is steller, even compared to satellite, the functionality is just not on a par with what I'm able to do with the Genie. They say its coming, but thus far, the updates they've provided have been underwhelming and the day after live VOD library is non existent.
I'm holding out hope that they can deliver before my 3 months prepay period is up, because I really like the idea of a $40 monthly sub for 100 channels including HBO.
I decided to give Vue a try with their 7 day trial and I found that it's everything I was hoping DirectvNow would be. Their cloud DVR service is pretty incredible. Unlimited simultaneous recordings of all networks including HBO and Showtime.
So, for anyone considering a move, I would strongly suggest that you give the Vue service a try. I'm currently trialing their "Ultra" package which for me costs $55 a month and includes HBO and Showtime, and also allows me to login to those services "TV Everywhere" apps.
Right now, this is hands down the best value in the market, at least for me.
