Question for y'all.
Thinking about leaving DirectvNow. So far; service has been perfect. I don't mind the $10 price increase. (Still saving $60+ a month over Satellite for same package). I'm grandfathered, so I still have all my channels.
Only reason I'm thinking of leaving is for Local channels. I've given DirectvNow 10 months and they still don't have local channels for my zip code. It's not a major issue, I can use an OTA antenna. But until the $10 price hike, DirectvNow had ALL the channels I wanted and they were about $10 cheaper than the others. "Cheaper, because ALL of the others; Vue, Hulu, and Youtube, I'd have to ADD Philo to it to get the same channels. BUT.... Now that it's basically the same exact price; give or take $2-$3 difference; I'm thinking of changing from DirectvNow to Youtube tv OR Hulu live tv. (Both of course with Philo).
Both Youtube and Hulu have their pros and cons. Hulu has both HBO and Starz that I want. Youtube doesn't, so I'd have to get HBO as a direct purchase from HBO. Both have my same locals. When combined with Philo, both offer pretty much the exact same channels. Youtube+Philo will be $5 less; however, DirectvNow, Hulu, and Fubo all raised their prices for live streaming tv within the last 30 days. Youtube and Vue haven't since last summer, so I am anticipating that both probably will shortly. So price is pretty much equal.
I have absolutely no use for DVR, so that's not an issue. Both youtube tv and hulu live tv have additional profiles. There's only me and my wife, so 2 streams are more than enough.
Just curious, especially for those who may have tried both, why you're with Youtube over Hulu. (I assume you're with Youtube tv because you're on the Youtube tv thread.
