Because the Vandy football game last weekend was only on the CBS Sports channel, I decided to sign up for a free month of YouTube TV, which is one of the few streaming providers to have it (Hulu is the other).
- I used it to watch two football games, and both had excellent quality on my PC with no dropouts or crashes.
- Strong in sports. You get the ESPNs, SEC Network, FOX Sports, local FSNs, CBS Sports, Tennis, and Olympics channels.
- You get some local channels as well, depending where you live. In Nashville, I get ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC.
- You can DVR most anything and there is unlimited storage (for up to 9 months per recording).
- The only way to get the stream to a tv set is to use Chromecast or Apple Airplay.
- No Viacom channels, limited kids tv (it has Disney but not Nick or Cartoon Network), no CNN or AMC.
The cost is $35 is supported cities. You can stream to computers, tablets, and smartphones.
I plan on cancelling soon because I have Sling Blue (and get my ESPN channels another way), but it is intriguing, especially for sports fans.
