a good combo would be YouTube TV and Philo. my wife likes watching the first 48 but there's no A&E on YTTV. for $16 a month for Philo - it's a common combo with YTTV subscribers.

This is my current setup as well. And I have no idea why this thread is in Tour Talk, but WTH......

going to be running ethernet from our 3rd bedroom where the modem/router is into all rooms and living area to have that ability. get an ethernet switch if you have multiple devices in one area (smart tv, streaming device, game console, ect).


off topic - why is this in tour talk?

YouTube TV user here.  We have 2 homes so our streaming account travels with us as we snowbird.  I cast from phone or PC to TV via Chromecast dongle.  We get the local channels no matter where we are.  $40/month covers both locations!  Working well for us.

Hooked up new modem but Hulu still buffering.  Doing a 7 day trial with Sling Blue at the moment with no buffer issues.  I'll try a couple more services as well.

Added Youtube TV last night so we'll see how it competes with Sling.

Just cancelled Youtube TV trial period.  Tried to connect to Youtube TV this morning and it said my account was disabled - talked with youtube rep and he said everything looked fine on their end and recommended I talk with my ISP, lol!

Are you hardwiring Hulu or using wifi?

Initially, when I got Netfllix, I wifi'ed it, but encountered the buffering. Not that it is hardwired into my Firestick, which is hardwired into the modem, the only time I lose connectivity is when the cable goes down - which, with Spectrum/Time Warner (don't get me started) is about 6-8 times/day. Yet, when it goes down (actually IF it goes down) with the technician here, they say they will look into it, but nothing gets resolved. Resets the DVR 2-3 times a day as well, causing my wife to miss her soap operas

Me - I don't watch as much TV. If it were up to me, I'd have the highest speed internet alone, run whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted, right thru the laptop and chromecast it whatever I have hooked up to chromecast.

But, that's just me...

Wifi.

I just checked into Gears TV and I'm impressed. It offers an amazing amount of content for $25/month (less if you prepay), also free PPV events. I wonder what the catch is.......

This is the catch, you need a subscription for each TV in the house if you intend to watch simultaneously. I have 3 TV's in my household, so I pay around $50 a month using Mayfair Guides with it which I highly recommend.
What device do you use to watch Gears on your tv?

Actually I figured it out since my last post - looks like I have an old gmail account which is "Branded" whatever the heck that means that's conflicting with YTTV.  Anyway, I'm able now to watch it since the trial period is still running for another week BUT not sure I'm going to give them my business since they (google and youtube) couldn't figure out my viewing problem earlier.  On a positive note, no buffer with YYTV and my Hulu is buffering as I write this post.
