Yes, but I'm currently paying an EXTRA $20 for Philo, to get everything I want. So if YTTV was more because of more channels; I'd still save money, assuming the additional channels were the one's I wanted. Just sort of wish both hulu and yttv had multiple packages like vue. Then we would ALL be happy.

Yea; I'd be willing to have a YTTV package that was $20 MORE per month, if it had all the channels that Philo has in it. Then I'd be paying the same, but only dealing with 1 app.
Actually; Philo must have figured SOMETHING out correctly. Of their 57 channels; ONLY 8 of them are duplicated on YTTV. ONLY 11 are duplicated with Hulu live tv. My biggest channel issue with YTTV is it doesn't carry the A&E family of channels. I like the History channel, Lifetime, A&E, etc. It would also be nice if it had the various Discover channels as well as hallmark. Plus YTTV doesn't carry HBO, so that's another app I'll have to get.
Hulu on the other hand, Has those channels, but they don't carry the AMC family of channels, some of the discovery channels, hallmark channels, etc. Except for DirectvNow (Before the change), no other streaming service had ALL of the channels. So, I am relegated to adding Philo to pretty much ANY service I get. The one good thing about have BOTH YTTV or Hulu AND having Philo; if one service is down for whatever reason, I still have half of my channels available. And I don't need more than 2 screens streaming because the viewing is split up among 2 services.
