After 25+ years of Satellite TV, the first 5 or so with Dish and the last 20 or so with DirecTV, I have bid satellite TV adieu. Why? Three simple answers. Cost! Cost! Cost! I had played along with the system for years getting freebies and discounts and have found that even with those deals, it's still not cost effective. Plus my ISP recently bumped up the speed of our connection, from 50Mbit to 300Mbit, at no additional cost making the streaming alternatives a no brainer. My monthly bill for TV went from over $220 to about $131 currently. And I expect that to drop again soon once I decide upon a service. So what did I switch to? Currently I'm running three subscription services, two of which are mostly on a trial basis to see which I prefer. Those two are YouTube TV (YTV) and PlayStation Vue. Vue currently costs me $75 which includes a subscription to both HBO and Showtime. YouTube TV costs me $40. The third service I pay for is called Philo. Philo includes 43 channels for a monthly fee of only $16. Philo is a much needed service for me as it is the only service that I found that could get me my History channel. All 3 services offer varying DVR services - Vue keeps your DVR shows for 28 days, I believe YTV keeps them for about 9 months and I have yet to look into these things with Philo. Both of the major providers offer unlimited cloud DVR space as well. They also both carry older episodes in their massive On Demand libraries. Picture quality on these services is fairly good in my opinion. Granted, there is some video that streaming has issues with but it's not that bothersome, again, in my opinion. The one excellent trade-off is that everything is upconverted and shown in Dolby Vision on my Apple TV and LG OLED! I have another Apple TV in my theater room and then I have Roku's on the rest of my displays. All 3 of the services work with these platforms just fine. I'll be adding to this thread over time as I get time to talk more about it.
