    Once again I see YES listed. Last time I wanted to try YTTV YES was listed and then when I activated the service I could not get it for some reason. Perhaps that has been fixed. If someone wants to check that out my zip code is 08854.

    Sounds better and better but I gotta have something to record. My first thought is to wait for spring training but the latest D* nightmare makes me want to do something now. Few weeks left in the NFL season, might sign up and see what happens.

    Yes, I see Yes when trying your zip code, but don't see it when I try mine.

    I'm not a fan so I didn't pay much attention but YTTV seems to be very MLB friendly. The base package includes MLB Network, MLB Network Alternate, and MLB Game of the Week channels. At least those channels are currently listed in my Live Guide.

    I am seriously wondering how Directv is going to survive even the next five years let alone ten. Every month it becomes harder and harder to justify paying my bill. I could literally drop Directv and get everything I would ever need for half the price. At this point I am kind of just becoming an old man who refuses to change because I don't like change but the Logical side of me keeps shouting every month asking, what am I doing as I pay another DTV bill without just cancelling.

    Just got thru activating YTTV. Recorded The Late Show and Jeopardy and found that quite easy. Put a few football games on the DVR too. Easier than I thought it would be.

    Me too. Looks like the SSDs will be fine on the HRs and I'm losing that point of interest in D*. Not all that much left that interests me.

    LOL I mean you either pay it or leave and try something else. Everyone wants to try and justify there reasons on here for staying or not staying.. Either suck it up buttercup and realize yeh your going to pay a good amount for Directv.. There is no getting around this.... Or leave and use something else... They have made it abundantly clear over the last 5-6 years they are going to be a Premium TV service. The days of big discounts or whatever to compete with everyone are gone

    For me No Streaming Service offers my local RSN and my cable company lacks alot of HD channels... So Guess what.. Whether Directv costs me 50 or 200 dollars.. That is what I am going to pay.. Until that changes. #Directv4Life here

    The main reason I stay is because of 4k sports. A few other providers are starting to provide 4k now, but none offer the NBA in 4k other than Directv. It is crazy how much more Directv is compared to even other cable options. Luckily I get discounts for now, but without discounts the pricing is ridiculous. With cable providers, you get pretty good discounts for bundling phone and internet. When I had Fios, I would get the highest tv package, plus internet and phone for 145 a month. And even after promo pricing disappeared it would go up to 165 a month. Plus maybe another 15 for hbo would be about 180. Directv is currently 196 just for tv alone for their highest package before adding any equipment. I did recently get NBA League Pass for free and Sunday Ticket Max for half off so that also makes Directv worth it for now.

    I'm in the same yacht (see what I did there? :D). I don't care about RSNs and am happy with the Preferred Xtra package. From my research, Cox and Dish will be a step down in the PQ category. My current promo is up in April, and if I can't sweet talk them into re-upping, then I'll probably take a look at TMobile. Sounds like it'll be a step up in PQ, I'll have all the random channels I want and supposedly "no hidden fees" unless you count the fees hidden in the page that says "no hidden fees" :D. It'll be $18/mo more then I'm paying on my promo, but I'll gain Smithsonian and maybe a few other channels. And it'll save me all the hassle of going full on streaming... although supposedly YTTV got rid of forced ads on CBS this week or so?

    It all depends with the discount/bundles The Bigger Cable Co's(Verizon/Altice/Comcast/whatever) bundle like hell and compete well. However in my area Armstrong which is a large Regional Company doesnt bundle worth crap. And when i price it out I think I pay 15 dollars more a month for Directv anyway
