So YouTube TV is bumping their price by $10 per month to $49.99 inline with the PS Vue core plan.

Anyone else thinking of changing with this latest price bump? Vue has NFL Network, so.... :)

I'm also thinking it might be a good time to test out any other worthy suitors.

I would but to where? They are all raising prices. Its a load of crap, because they are adding more channels. The reason I got youtubetv is because I didn't want a bunch of crappy channels. Wish you could opt out if you wanted to keep it at $40

Yah. The streaming options are raising their rates to the point that, once you pay for internet and then streaming TV, you're about as expensive as it was to have a cable package. But at least I can watch whatever I want on unlimited phone data wherever I am, if I want.

We ditched cable TV in 2014 and do not have any streaming services. We do not miss it. We have internet only. No big deal. We have found other things to occupy our lives that are better for our family than sitting in front of a screen.

Probably not the reply you were looking for...
How do you watch Vols games?

I'm in the same boat. I was fine with what I had for $39.99. I don't care about Discovery or whatever they added. I was hoping they would allow grandfathered plans, but no nice.

At the $49.99 price point, I'm wondering now if PS Vue is the move.

Im thinking of Hulu TV once my DirecTV contract is up. I've gotten my DTV down to $35/ month.

I just cut cable and signed up for Playstation Vue. I have the core package and am moving from Comcast to Fios for internet. I’ll update when I get it all up and running. My cable bill was $230 a month and I couldn’t justify it anymore. With Vue and internet I’ll now be at $130 and get a free year of Netflix.

Me and my wife were discussing this. She doesn't really watch tv at all, and i mainly keep it for football. May cancel, then just ad it back, or slung, during football season.

My story exactly. I only got one Roku stick, but I like PS Vue and will get all four TV s on it.
It has everything Comcast has except Bloomberg, religious channels and shoping channels.
I got the 2nd tier.

I use Sling for football season. $25 + $5 for SEC network. Antenna gets us the CBS games. Sign up in August and dump it after NCG. We haven’t had cable in over 8 years.

I might just cancel streaming TV after the Stanley Cup until football season starts back up, at this point it's mainly just background noise in our house besides hockey.

DTVN is the best going on IMO. We even take it with us on travel and like camping. I had PSVUE for about a year but switched and haven’t looked back. I didn’t like the location lock with PSVUE and the menu was clunky and the resolution was poor IMo.
