My nephew has me trying YouTube tv and it works pretty well. Has my local channels away from home. I donít know about how long but suspect itís dependent on home billing address. Sadly this is all controlled by the networks, they donít care if you donít get what you want.

This summer, when YouTubeTV "got upset" because I wasn't in my home area for >90 days it started giving me local channels where I was. I'm not sure if this is the normal procedure, but it was Ok with me.

We haven’t had cable or satellite for 4 years. We have unlimited data and can stream about 70-80 percent of the time. Took some getting used to but we have learned there is more to do than watch TV.

Like reading and posting on iRV2.

We just got back from a trip to Soap Lake WA. The CG was pretty empty since it was the middle of the week so the manager just said "pick a spot and I will do the paperwork" I walked the available sites in the "price range" and found two with an open SE exposure. Picked one, set up, and deployed the dish. It worked fine. Good thing, the data there was "email speed only" and our T-Mobile barely had cell signal much less data.

We also use OTR mobile to stream YouTube TV and have had good results. I split YouTube with my son. They allow for five different streams and 5 cloud based DVRs. I get local channels from his billing zip code. Works for me. If I want local channels from where we are traveling campground cable or over the air antenna will have to do. Iíve only been one place where AT&T was marginal for streaming so for that week I used my Verizon cell. Splitting the account with my son eliminates the whole not in your home zip code every so many days requirements.

I kept satellite as streaming just has too many hoops to jump thru. I prefer simplicity and sat does it for me. I have a dish on the roof and one for the ground should trees be in the way. Plus I have the tv on most of the day using with CNBC. Just not realistic for streaming

As of this morning I have cancelled DirecTV; we have been using YouTube TV for several weeks without any issues.

It was amusing to me that in order to cancel DirecTV I had to call a "special number" that isn't operational on weekends! When I called it this morning, the recording said "we're experiencing high call volumes!" Hard to imagine a less customer-service oriented company than AT&T!

If anyone else wants the cancellation department: 855-235-3982

I was also amazed they asked for no early termination fees. I was within two year agreement.

We cut the Dish cord several months ago at home and use Sling, Prime, and Hulu instead. With a tablet plan from AT&T and a Visible phone, I feel we have a much better experience than standard definition campground cable and the cost of paying for so much we don't watch in both the RV and S&B. And we are finally getting our money's worth out of the Roku apps.

Could you expand on ďtablet plan from ATTĒ and ďVision Phone from VerizonĒ?

We use a Roku Streaming Stick with the CNBC app and my DW has it on literally all day. It requires a cable or satellite login. We have just internet service with our home cable company so I tried that login.

It worked and I was shocked. The cable company must just be passing a valid token for all of their customers instead of just those with cable tv service.

Sure and that is "Visible" phone from Verizon here $40/month unlimited internet....interested? Everything you need is in post # 10. I got the Moto G7 phone from them for $199 (normally $250) and will get $100 rebate after 2 months paid service. The plan is truly unlimited for talk, text and data and no throttling.
I also bought a used or open box unlocked GSM hotspot from eBay and then a $35/month AT&T tablet plan from eBay. It is also unlimited data. At a campground, I test the speed from each and use the fastest one.

With the 9.1 Roku update, you are automatically logged on to many apps when you login to the Roku.

YouTube TV Question: can you schedule programs to record? If so can it be done on a recurring basis (e.g., record all NCIS showings). Its not clear from reading their site. Thanks.
