Default YouTube TV RUT ROH!

When CWGUY helped me jump on the Streaming Bandwagon it was $35 a month. Then up to $40 a month, Then $50 and now $64.95. The great thing is they added on channels we don't need and said they will be compiling information over the next month about customer feedback and then may make a decision to adjust the price.

It isn't like we didn't know this was going to happen. NOTHING this good lasts forever. $15 isn't gonna kill me at all it's the idea of the price creep and where and when will it stop.

Someone mentioned a while back that they would rather pay for the convenience of Direct TV. Maybe they were correct. We shall see.

Thanks for NOTHING You Tube TV! You didn't make my day!

Get Amazon Prime and Netflix, about $20 per month. You can add other streaming services like HBO Cinemax Showtime etc for 8-10 per month.

Name it we've got it. The alternative is Sling. I have it already but Monkey see Monkey do. If the increase works for these guys then everybody is gonna do it.

Comcast is sending one free unit to stream it is supposed to be delivered tomorrow. Additional units from Comcast are $5 a month. Back to renting again, NOPE.

I considered dumping Comcast for YouTube TV, but Comcast met the price. YouTube was $50.00 per month then. I’ve locked in the Comcast pricing for two years. Looks like I might have saved a few bucks.

Just saw the price increase while watching youtubeTV. Been with it since it started but cancelled my subscription today. That 3rd increase for a couple lousy channels did it for me!

For us, the increase is only $14.00 which we could easily afford, but I don't want to afford it. I do not want the new channels, for that matter I don't want most of the channels offered. Time to look at what is available.

Going to take a close look at Peacock offered by Comcast, plus Hulu offers almost the same channels as YouTubeTV. Plenty of other streaming channels available, but what a pain in the neck!

Any other suggestions from TOTV streamers welcome.

There are ever changing deals enough to make you crazy . So I just stay with direct tv , mostly because of my NFL ticket but some just because I don’t feel like chasing the next deal , There was a time when I was always looking for cable deal , then I realized I was complaining about a cable bill but still shopping at Armani and Hugo Boss , $5 raise in cable, spending $100 on a T-shirt, had to laugh makes you wonder how the human brain work sometimes

As of today I am looking for a replacement fit YouTube TV I am researching HuLu, Sling, fobo. Please let us know what others find as a cheaper option. Locals and cloud DVR are important to us.

I hear ya! I cancelled Y.T.TV today. $30 increase in under 2 years, no thanks.

Our kids are gonna be upset cause they have been mooching off our account for the entire time.

Sling is OK but it's true that there is NOTHING as good as Y.T.TV.

The lady I cancelled with was a doll and said they were going to shut down the customer service line for the rest of the day because they were bleeding customers. I wished her well at her next job. You can still cancel online somehow.

So I cancelled today but still have them until July 24th because they don't prorate cancellations.

Let's see what tomorrows Comcast delivery of their streaming device brings. I'll keep you posted.

Just remembered that I had Philo for a test drive in the beginning and it was great.

Comcast is providing a steaming device? How much will it cost? I have been streaming Comcast using Roku boxes for over a year. The catch is you must have one Comcast box. The main box is on the living room TV and I use the Roku devices in the bedrooms and kitchen. Saving $21.00 month not needing the additional boxes from Comcast I have paid for my Roku devices. An additional plus is I have HD and On Demand on all TVs

Is any one using Hulu? Was more expensive than YouTube, but may be cheaper now. Also need to look into Peacock, owned by Comcast. New, really new, not even up and running yet, sounds too good to be true.

When I went from the Starter Package to the next step up speed wise they offered one Roku like unit for FREE. I accepted and it should be here tomorrow. Since I haven't seen it yet I have no details yet but will report back as I learn more.

The only bad thing so far is that I hate putting my eggs in the Comcast Basket. They are better so far but for me, they are only on parole they haven't been fully cleared yet for the sins of the past.

Good luck on that one. We did the same thing. Locked in a price of 149.xx for 2 years. All of a sudden the third bill I got was just shy of $200.00 I'm SO done with comcrap.
