I've been thinking about getting rid of DirecTV. Too lazy to dig into it cause I'm at work but do you get weather channel? Seems to be the biggest obstacle to me dropping it is my wife really needs it cause she commutes and watches it every morning.

No, unfortunately, no Weather Channel. There is a thing called the internet that I hear has a Weather Channel website. 😉

But yeah, TWC would still be nice to have added. Having broadcast local channels is good for local news and weather though.

I can't find any streaming options that have the weather channel.

Trust me I know you can check your phone but she's a creature of habit and would rather me overpay $100 a month for DirecTV

Thank you!

Youtube TV is solid. It's definitely better than Sling but not as good as PS Vue and DirecTVNow imo.

just gonna leave this here.

We have one planned update left for 2018, which we’re hoping to release in early December. For our Xbox One X players, your time has come! Enhanced Xbox one X support will be part of this update, complete with 4K at 60 frames-per-second and HDR support! We’ll have more to share on these improvements in the near future.

DirectTV Now is absolutely horrible in my experience. Worse streaming quality of them all for me.

PS Vue is fine but doesn’t have all my local channels and was $5 more. Also liked the YTTV interface better. But local channels is probably the big dealbreaker for me. In fact ABC is On Demand only on PS Vue in my area so you have to wait for shows to even be on demand to watch them.

YTTV also has the most sports channels included at the $40 rate as well.

Think everyone needs to try them all and make their own decision. What works well in one market may not work as well in others.

TWC is only available for streaming online (legally) if you are a subscriber to one of their TV providers and log in with your TV provider user account. They only do free online streaming during a major weather event.

Apparently Fubo and DirectTV Now have it in some streaming packages. But wasn’t enough to entice me.

I wasn’t referring to streaming when I mentioned their website though. I was talking about finding your local forecasts, etc.

Agreed. Cost of DirecTV getting up there. But it plain works. And after a long day of work and dealing with the kids, that's enough for me. It would be painful to have to re-educate everyone in my house on using something new. That would be pure punishment for me. And if any of my wife's favorite channels were missing (ID, Hallmark, etc.) I'd never hear the end of it,
