I cut the cord just this past year and went with PS Vue. I didn't miss a single game and the package only cost 34.99. I was surprised how many channels were included in the package. I was so happy to carry my equipment into Cox and tell them it was malfunctioning. When they asked me how, i explained that it was showing me more commercials than I was paying for and I was afraid of getting a bill for stealing content. They laughed, tried to talk me out of it and then just wished me luck. I haven't missed it one bit.

PS Vue made aimed their service at sports fan, and it appears youtube is doing the same thing. Sports fans are the main cord cutter wannabes that are just too afraid of losing access to the live sporting events they want to watch.

This is the way the world is heading, and it's great for consumers.  However, when it comes to watching a game on a 70" 4ktv with a dvr, I find that the better deal. 
I'll use this as leverage when Sunday Ticket rolls around.  Directv will roll over and give it to me free because I'll say I'm leaving you for you tube TV.   Works like a charm.

We cancelled Directv a couple of months ago because our streaming box has everything we could ever want to see, live or otherwise. It has ALL football games, college and NFL, for one flat fee. It is the way the world is headed.

You can also use your PS Vue login to gain access to The Watch ESPN App with
SEC Network + ( regular SEC Network is part of the $34.99 package).  I used it for the Basbeall series this past weekend. 

Highly recommend PS Vue on either PS4 or Roku.

I've had both Sling and Playstation Vue. They're function the same. It all depends on what you want for channels and what you want to pay.

This one looks interesting. It has CBS College Sports,  which the othwest don't,  but Vue has far more channels.

I've had Sling and a Chromecast for close to a year and it's good for me. $27 a month and that's with a sports package added at $5.

Because I have Sling I have access to the WatchESPN app and I use it for anything on the ESPN channels.

The ESPN app casts via Chromecast close to flawlessly for me. I think the Sling app itself needs some work when it comes to casting via Chromecast, though. I just watch anything on it on my phone instead of casting.

Just waiting on my satellite contract to be up....

Thats me. I have one more year left with Dish. They recently jacked my prices up big time. I had to turn them over to the FCC. You wouldn't believe how nice they were about what they repeatedly claimed was "my mistake"... Even though I constantly told them that I had a guaranteed two year price. Funny how they want to hold you to your side of the contract while they violate your end non-stop.

The only thing left to do now is to figure out which option I want. I have the ps4 so the VUE sounds interesting. I like having a dvr and all of my tv's are high def of course. I have one of those 80 inch smart tv's with a booming sony sound system. Honestly I don't know which would be the best between google tv and all of the other choices. But I have time to look into it. Like you waiting for the contract to end.

I our case with PS Vue, we have one account which allows five devices. A PS4 in the den, PS4 in kids game room, an old PS3 in a kids bedroom, and a Roku in our bedroom.  Can have up to 5 streams on one account, we use 4.  All are independent.  Each can watch without regard to others.

Yep, I got the Roku streaming box at walmart for 80 bucks. I have had no complaints at all. I checked to make sure that it gave access to watchESPN before I cut the cord. Love it.

Go to walmart and buy a Roku streaming box for 79.99 and then go to https://vue.playstation.com and start your free trial. You will not be disappointed.

In NWA the only "Major Network" (ABC, NBC, FOX, & CBS) that streams live through PS Vue is KCTV Ch 5 (CBS) out of Kansas City.  You get the other networks "on demand" 24 hrs after air time.  We use a Leaf HD antenna (about $50) for live ABC, NBC, and Fox.  We've had no problems at all.

I am interested in knowing which antenna you are using and where you got it.

ISP's have anticipated this. Cox has started limiting amount of downloads before charging extra. I have the preferred internet and limited to 1024 GB data.

With all this cord cutting who are you using for internet service? I looked at comcast and its like $75 a month for middle of the pack speed. Not sure that I want AT&T dsl. When I had dsl they lowered my download speed and didn't tell me. When we tried to use two devices at same time one of them wouldn't load. So I switched to comcast for internet. Speed is great since it's packaged with my tv. I would really like to cut the cord but sports keep me hanging on with comcast.

As I stated earlier, we have a streaming device that has all live sports on it. It's through an app called SportsDonkey. You must have an android streaming device like Amazon Fire Stick or Fire Box. It's about $100/year. But we also own a streaming box that has everything on it, including all movies and tv shows. PM me if interested in more info about where to get it. I'm not trying to sell anything....just like to share great info on how to get rid of satellite.

Playstation Vue has DVR capability to an extent - it holds your recorded video for 28 days I believe but I've never checked to see if old video truly disappears....or just fades away.

 I don't keep cable anymore. I used Sling TV during football season.  I usually keep Amazon Prime and Netflix streaming. I add the DVD service from January-April to catch up. But after that I cancel and start doing more and more outdoor activities.

Count yourself fortunate to have meaningful internet choices. Those of us stuck on DSL connections are getting left behind. Even though I've cut the cord, my DSL speed is starting to show signs of stress. While changes that take power away from the cable and satellite companies are a positive development, these changes are likely playing into the hands of Internet providers.

This. Since 90% of the internet service is broadband provided by cable companies, be prepared. They never anticipated that the majority of their connections would be internet only. As TV subscriptions drop, their networks create less revenue, pressure will mount from failed revenue projections and stockholder blowback. You will begin to see faster speeds advertised, data usage caps on most plans and then a $100 plus and then plus and then plus again and again, unlimited plan. In areas where there is cable competition it might be slower to develop but I would fully expect it to roll out in full force in areas with little or no competition.

Do these internet sensations have to pay espn for their networks? Surely they do. If so why would the revenue to espn and schools be any diffeeent. Apparently the same people that are cutting the cord are buying sling tv or Playstation vue.
