I've been streaming for over a decade. Streaming was absolutely an unstable nightmare, which is basically the only reason I stuck with Directv. For the stability and consistency alone. Any time I'm outside I am on Appletv using NHL.tv or MLB.tv - as of right now MLB.tv is a near perfect platform. It's taken MLBAM time, but I have 100% confidence in it. The only thing I will miss is the channel 720 MLB mosaic game mix channel, and the Strike Zone channel they put on Tuesday and Friday nights. The mini red zone channel for baseball- which btw has been getting worse and worse with their pathetic in studio hosts. MLB Tonight on MLBN with Harold Reynolds, Amsinger and Plesac is the best sports show on television. So I really dont care about Strike Zone much anymore. We have Gigabit internet at home, with a high end wireless setup using Ubiqiti. In home internet isn't even on the radar. As for Hockey, NHL.tv is where things become problematic. There are absolute identified performance and quality issues with this service regardless of the platform you use to deliver it. It is markedly better this season than years past, but I still get the dip in resolution from time to time. Their infrastructure or CDN's (akamai and Level 3) are either not optimized or there just isn't enough demand screaming about it. Either way, there are PLENTY of black market outlets with stable streams. As for the over flow on MSG networks, I find myself caring about this maybe 2-3 times a year. It's really only a thing when the Sabres, Knicks, Rangers, Isles, Devils are all playing same night, same time. It's mostly an anomaly. \\ Lastly, I will miss a few of the MLB broadcasts in 4K this season if Directv Now does not add 4K. But many reports say they will, so I think I'll be ok. I will not miss the repetitive garbage programming on 104 that they try and pass as serious 4K content. I've already begun shopping around for other mobile deals as well. I'm sure Verizon or TMobile would LOVE to take me off AT&T for a fancy deal. At this stage, when I call on Monday, Feb 4th, they will basically have to give me my TV package for free in order to keep me on. An approximate 20yr/$60,000 invested customer should never be treated like a nothing, in any financial climate.
