what do you mean?
I almost never use it (just use the apps for ESPN/Fox Sports/Whatever) so it doesn't bother me but I don't get how it can continue to be so very bad.
I read a hands-on review of the beta the other day (will post later if I find it) that said it is the best streaming service yet. I signed up for a chance to be included in a future group of beta testers.
EDIT: here's one http://cordcuttersnews.com/seen-hulu-live-impressed-first-impressions/
Anybody here use Kodi on a fire stick? Is it just taboo to talk about it, or what? Kind of surprised I haven't seen it mentioned here.
It looks like you can be watching 3 different channels on the same tv. The screen just splits up so you have one main channel, with 2 other channels on the side. I haven't tried it yet though.
This is a PS Vue feature or hardware feature? I haven't seen anything like that using PS Vue.
This guy has some good advice:
I posted here or in another thread on the subject that I was going back to DTV since I was having so many lags. I'm happy to report that Mediacom sent a competent tech out and I get the data throughput that I pay for. What a difference it has made. I still have a couple pauses after fast-forwarding a recorded show, but pausing for a few seconds clears that up. Amazon and Hulu don't have issues at all.
Very glad I stayed with PS Vue.
I guess I'm not sure. Maybe it's a hardware feature. I am using a PS3.
I did. But deleted it. I downloaded all the free **** on my phone first, questioned the legal/moral issues and deleted it. Was a lot harder to download the extra free stuff on the fire.
The PS Vue multi-screen feature is only available on the PS4.
I don't have it running on FireStick. I do have it running on my tablet with chromecast. I know a guy who sideloaded kodi (not available as an app in the appstore) on his FireStick and said it works well.
We switched late last summer to PSVue. We run it on a FireBox, and it works great. Unfortunately we have an XboxOne, so no go there. However we chromecast to the other TVs when we want to watch TV. I find the GUI on the FireBox acceptable. I do miss a recall channel feature.
I can't see a time when we don't subscribe to Netflix and Prime.
Before PSVue: Cable and 50 meg Internet: ~$135.00 (3 Tivo boxes)
With PSVue (and OTA): 150 meg Internet $55.00, Vue $35.00: $90.00
I feel I am not missing much in TV viewing while saving $45.00 per month. I was ROI with OTA / FireBox equipment 10 weeks in.
Went from $120 for DTV to $35.00 for DTV Now. Spent $280 for my Tablo box and after three months I am already ahead.
I know it was brought up way back in this thread but Sling TV will give you a $30 Roku Express for free with two months worth of subscribing. I subscribed to get ESPN networks and Walking Dead for Feb and March. The Roku Express is fine for most people or at least great for a TV in extra rooms that doesn't have some sort of box.
We went from $85 for DirecTV to $35 for Now, so $50/month savings. Im going to miss DVR, but have found other ways to get on demand. Now still is behind on uploading their on demand shows. We also did have to get an additional firestick and an HD antenna. Switching between sources is a pain, but not so much that it justifies paying an additional $50/month. So far Im happy, but if Now keeps improving, I doubt I'll ever look back.
Not sure if I'm reading this right, but if you hold the menu button or 3-line button on the top right, it pops up a quick menu, with your last channel. If you're on PS4, then the triangle. Here's a little read on it for the PS4.
You Sir, just made this household very happy. Thank you.
Question for you all. When you're cutting, are you getting an antenna for locals? Just curious.
I've already cut, running sling, netflix and exterior antenna for local channels. Gone from paying 157 a month to 95 a month after dropping dish and picking up Spectrum Internet.
