I don't have the guts to do this right before football season, so it's probably going to be January-ish for me.
I had originally looked at DTV Now, Sling, and to a lesser extent Vue, and I thought Sling was going to be my pick, but I read how the sports add-ons work wrong, and then I also read Sling is 30 fps (although it's 60 for the ESPN family). After re-evaluating, I think Vue would be my choice right now, and I'm currently doing the 5 day free trial this week just to check it out and see how it works, how I like it, etc. It is a different world than cable/satellite, and there are a few ways in which it's clunkier than tradition TV, but most of those aren't problems for me with the way I consume television. Channel surfing is the most obvious glaring difference to me. But I don't channel surf, hardly at all. This could be an issue on football days, when I absolutely do a lot of that, and it's just not nearly as convenient with Vue. But I don't know that it's enough of a drawback to offset the big savings.
I've also looked into Hulu Live TV and YouTube TV since my last posts. Hulu seems ideal if they'd get the AMC family of networks (and I'm hopeful that maybe that will be done by the end of the year). YouTube TV looks wonderful, but it's simply not available where I live, and who knows how long until it will be. I'll re-evaluate in December/January and see where they all stand at that time, and probably make a decision.
bwarbiany, let me know how it goes for you. Also what platform you're using Sling on and what your comments are about it. From what I read, platform/device can be critical to different services, and that's no surprise. There's a lot more moving parts here than cable/satellite which is end-to-end handled by one company. I've read that most people prefer boxes to sticks, for example, and prefer to hardwire them instead of streaming wirelessly. But, I'm testing Vue this week on a FireStick (wireless of course) and I've had no problems. I'd just like to collect more info from people actually doing it on what they find works best with what.
Also, if you (or others) have a way to track your data usage, I'm curious about that as well. My ISP has a data cap of 1 TB/mo., which I've never even come close to before. But I'm unsure as to how much internet TV would bump that up.
