    I agree with you on the RSN fee. I wouldn't pay that either. Good thing Preferred Xtra doesn't have one ;). Preferred Xtra = 230+ channels minus like 1 or 2 sports channels that Xtra would have. I don't watch sports, so that's perfect.

    Ok, so you need AT&T Now and OTA and a Tivo to get all your channels. Argument I (and many others) make against that is that juggling multiple devices / apps / providers / bills (although OTA is free) is a pain. I have an OTA antenna as well and what do ya know :D, OTA support is built into the DirecTV box, so its all integrated into a single device and single provider and single UI.

    I wouldn't use up ~700GB watching HD... but probably would if I there was a lot of 4K content.

    If Cox ever does away with the data cap, which I doubt they will, might be a different situation cost wise for people with data caps.

    Still, regardless... I don't want to juggle multiple providers, apps, UIs and pay for channels 2 or 3 times.

    I have an OTA antenna and it works just fine going through my DirecTV box. I use it mainly for the sub channels, not the mains which I get through DirecTV. Even if I did use it for the mains, it'd still be through a single device. Why do I want to juggle multiple DVRs? You must have a lot of time on your hands :D.

    Oh... I want to watch program X, wait a sec, what provider/DVR did I have that on again? Darn it all to heck, I can't keep track, let me hop on my PC and bring up my Excel spreadsheet and check my cross reference sheet :D.

    Yea, I had an AM21. It worked OK, but the tuner in it wasnt very good with multipath. its real hard to switch my AVR from Video 1 to Video 2 to switch from "cable" to "local". I even have video 3 "10' C band receiver" and Video 4 "4K blu ray player". Not that confusing. Now making an excel spreadsheet, that would be confusing, since I never used excel except at work to fill out pre-created forms for job orders. I would have no clue how to make one.

    We actually had Tvision for the last several months. The biggest issue was it didn't have a complete local package. We only got NBC and Fox feeds. The ABC feed was some sort of national feed that would cut in at the middle of a show with news packages. Also, to delete a recorded program you were watching, you couldn't just "right click" but instead had to go back through the menus to find the episode on the dvr menu and then delete it.

    Some other quirks with the app, but otherwise a good service. The picture quality came up a lot after in the last couple months.

    Haven't been on here in a while, so hi all. Glad to see the board is active!
    Thanks Lee

    I was going to sign up with T-vision, except they hadnt worked out the account system to accept Sprint customers yet, so stayed with ATT. Looking close at the YouTubeTv deal now that they have me on Tmobile billing.
    Already have free MLB.TV from them. If I get $10 off TV, my cell phone bill will be free.

    Surely not. I have 200/10 internet but I'm 80 miles from the nearest local and it isn't flat ground from there to here.
