The article: Best live TV streaming services for cord cutters My thoughts: What are cord cutters cheering about? This is an article FOR cord cutters and it makes all the services sound over priced and poor quality with loads of limitations. For comparison, I have an HR54 + Preferred Xtra and pay $52/mo which will go up to $72/mo next month. YouTube: $50 (same price as I'm paying now), missing History, forced to watch commercials if you don't watch your shows fast enough Sling: Also close in price to what I pay now, missing locals, USA, only allows 1 stream, can't record certain shows. The review says the UI sucks DirecTV Now: more money then what I pay now, missing Discovery, HGTV, History PlayStation: also more money then what I pay now, missing History, MTV Hulu: close in price, missing MTV, can't skip commercials in the $45 package, UI sucks All of the services have a low max stream count unless you go Hulu and pay $15 for the unlimited. Summary: All these limitations and gotchas… don't see why people are bragging about going from $200/mo on DirecTV to $70/mo or less on streaming. You aren't getting the same channels, same features or the same number of TVs and you're picking up a bunch of limitations. Also, for sports fans and live channels, those are delayed by up to a minute. Imagine trading stock listening to a 1 minute delayed CNBC these days. You might as well just set fire to your money lol. Also, in a lot of cases you lose 5.1 sound. Apples and apples people . EDIT: Don't get me wrong, I'm not defending DirecTV either. Service is way overpriced unless you are playing the promo game. But streaming isn't much better once you get down to it and in many cases, worse.
