    Does Hulu Live still not have a real DVR? Meaning I know when you recorded stuff on there years ago and there was an On Demand option, it would automatically and only play that when you went back to watch it later? Therefore making sure you had no choice but to watch the ads.

    Thank you fuboTV for the free trial. You have performed well when I needed you and are worthy of a rec when others are shopping.

    Lol, I was gonna go pal. Two things though

    1) ABC is showing on demand only

    and

    2) While re-adding I came across something called Fox Soul. What in the ever loving fuck is that since I won’t look at it?

    In that very email you referenced when you brought us the breaking news it says, and I quote, "We will also be turning on your local ABC stations over the course of the day."

    Thus. Patience. It's coming.

    All of my channels show checked and in the position I had them in the live guide without me having to reselect or move them. ABC is the only one unchecked, bc I assume it hasn’t been loaded back yet.

    Curious to see in the long run which side “won”.

    It was obvious Disney came out swinging with every ally they could get pushing messages about alternative options.

    I am curious if Disney got worried about MNF ratings taking a hit due to the loss of YTTV.

    This is why I won't get worked up over these things, it's always posturing and fixed pretty quick. I'm not tied to tv enough to trip over a day or 2.

    Is there any likelihood of yttv adding Bally or is that a lost cause?

    Lost cause. But not just for YTTV

    A baseball stoppage that goes into the season helps everyone here

    From what I read Bally wants to start their own streaming channel like NBA pass or MLB all access. I think we’re fucked.

    Which is why a work stoppage would be in our favor

    Is there any streaming service that gets it? Google fiber is ending TV so I need to find a streaming service for sports.

    Someone on Twitter said it’s going to be about $25 per month?? Just for Bally?? As far as I know, Direct tv stream is the only service that has it included
