Thanks for the heads-up about VUE, but it looks like it's more expensive than DishTV (with a DVR) and has fewer channels.
The VUE package I get, the middle one..has over 70 channels for $35/mo. and it covers what I watch regularly and would miss after cutting the cable cord.
Your mileage may vary.
But it does have DVR...on VUE.
What's the DishTV (I'm guessing you mean regular put up a satellite dish for this ) offering cost you're looking at? Isn't that with a 2 year contract and usually goes up in price after contract is up? Do you get hardware with that for all your rooms? They usually charge fees per outlet, etc.
I've played with satellite, UVerse and cable...I like the combo system I"ve got now with Tivo to capture my local HD OTA channels and the Amazon FireTV unit to stream VUE (cable channels), Netflix and Amazon Prime.
But everyone needs to see what fits their needs.
My total cost for TV now is $35....I don't count the Netflix as that I had that before, and my internet is my business expense, I'd have that no matter what and it isn't tied to any media or phone....its a business ISP connection....so, I went from $113/mo with ATT Uverse U200 package to $35/mo.
The article was talking about this new DirectTV Now service that sounds similar to VUE. I'll see what it looks like....because since I don't have a contract with VUE I can quit at any time for another offering that seems better value.
And I don't have to deal with satellite dishes....right now my OTA antenna is indoors, but I may put up an external one eventually to get one channel a little better.
