Test it out on a high volume show. My first big test was the Mad Men finale and that was a turd. Red Zone always performed admirably.

This won't help you as you are in an in market area, but MLBTV is exceptional.

The stand for my old TV broke, so I just thought F it... I'll buy a new one. Hopefully it is as good as the reviews.

Default I donít understand this fascination

About 6 months ago I did a little research using Apple TV and You Tube TV versus my fios.

After choosing the channels I wanted I compared the two to my fios service, from which I get just about every channel. I was surprised to find the cost pretty much the same, ergo it was foolish to drop the reliability of fios.

So, what was I missing?

Default Iím saving around $130 a month

after dumping Comcast phone service and cable tv.
YouTube tv is $50 a month. High speed internet from Comcast is around $90 a month and we subscribed to HBO. Bought a cable modem on Amazon and not paying the rent on Comcastís modem will save me $13 a month.
Iím waiting to see what wireless internet will be available once 5G service hits the Philly area. I had Clear wireless internet in my store and ran two registers, two copiers, a laptop and a desktop pc on it and it was golden. No more hiccups compared to what I have with cable internet now.

Default Yeah. We get all of the NBC sports

stations through YouTube tv. Watching the Phillies and other Philly teams isnít an issue. I have the PHL17 app on our computer and Iíll watch the Union games on that.
We got a new 4K 49Ē Samsung and so far so good.
My daughter and her fiancť are moving into a house soon, so weíre giving them the old set.

Isnít YouTube TV pretty much an a la carte service?

I pay $40 for 75/75 internet, $75 for every fios channel including all premium channels except HBO ($15 extra) and $12 for the set top box. Seems like what you really want is fios, assuming itís available to you.

That was my experience, too. I’m back with U-verse because I’m paying the same as I would with internet and Sling, but have the option of a hard line with DVR.

Default Wife watches live tv

on the pc or on her tablet while I watch the big tv downstairs.
No glitches in the streams.
Fios isnít an option since Verizon stopped running fiber cable in our area.
Comcast has a cable monopoly and their prices reflect it.
F em.
