    I'm happy you want to take the time to research the best options for everyone when they ask what they should do itt.

    I'll tag you each time someone asks if you would like. That way you can let them know the actual numbers and facts.

    Still trying to figure out redzone. I’m never getting rid of YouTube TV. It’s just so much better than Hulu and sling. I might just add sling for nfl season just to watch redzone but I’m not cancelling YouTube. Could just make a powermove and get nfl Sunday ticket.

    Hoping they can at least add Redzone as a pay option, I prefer it to watching full games on Sundays. I'll pay a season cost that isn't absurd.

    Should be obvious and offered on all streaming services like it is on cable but it wasn’t last year. I don’t understand why they don’t. Just ability to make sure anyone who wants it can pay for it seems like a no brainer.

    I just don't understand why the NFL doesn't agree to this. All it would mean is more eyes on their product and more money in their pockets. Hell, just do what HBO does and create your own Roku channel and charge the customers directly yourself.

    Directv is also a gigantic piece of shit here. Really they should change their model so they can provide the service as hoc for anyone. Instead they try to bleed another $600 from users on an already inflated cost model, due to their exclusivity. Makes zero sense and they’re throwing away 80% of the people who they’re currently fucking the second the exclusivity expires.

    Good news is, the NFL can opt out after this season.

    I’m still trying to figure out why the Bengals game was “not available to stream on the internet” on Saturday. I didn’t think this was going to be an issue but I won’t be happy if this happens for regular season stuff.

    It was talked about on Reddit that the preseason games could be blacked out for locals but the regular season games are exempt.

    I guess I don't really see the point of giving a recommendation if it's just going to be a boilerplate one. That just seems like an asshole move to me.

    Emma explicitly mentioned the History channel and YTTV doesn't even have it. But you said YTTV had him covered when it took all of 30 seconds to see they're lacking that channel.

    he didnt explicitly mention it like it was going to be a dealbreaker

    he just said regular TV channels and listed some examples

    Maybe it isn't a deal breaker, but he mentioned it by name.

    Exactly what's the point of giving recommendations in here if you're such a lazy prick that you can't even check if a service has the channels mentioned before recommending it?

    Might be slightly off topic but if someone likes history channel and it’s not a specific show they have but just enjoys history, do some research into some YouTube channels to follow. I’ve watched some incredible history videos that are way better than anything history channel or any of the recycled bullshit on cable has and they are free.

    It may have something to do with unless a preseason game is a national broadcast, they’re usually only carried locally/regionally - for example, here in D/FW, the Cowboys have their own Blue Star Network that broadcasts any preseason game not on national TV, and it’s usually on the CBS affiliate here.

    New antenna works. Don’t even really need to power it. Power helps NBC, but the others come in just fine. Will still probably get YTTV for football season for the cable channels.

    Rog already said they are probably pulling out of their deal at the end of the season. Best case scenario is this doesn’t get resolved and makes the contract dead at the end of the season official.

    Edit: their exclusivity with the package.

    Oh yeah my wife and her fam are packers fans so we’ve had the package or “streams” for years. I’d 100% purchase it if there were more options because we use it.

    Also thanks for the update. Worked on that a bit this weekend.
