    Re: Sling tv for bama ball?

    We're being using Youtube TV for sports and other channels including local since last summer. We added Philo app to get extra channels. Now we get more channels that we had with satellite TV for less than half the cost ($66 vs. $140). We tried Sling 2-3 years ago and found it too grainy and choppy.

For the Super Bowl this weekend I switched to my antenna but found little difference between HD TV and streaming on YouTube. Count me generally pleased with streaming on YouTube TV during this entire football season.
    I am pleased with Youtube TV as well. I don't think my issues are with them at all. I think it's the Roku device. And I've moved it around to see if my issues were due to signal interference between it and the wifi router, but even sitting next to or on top of the router, it still happens, and again, only with live sports. And it's not due to high usage or broadcasts with a ton of world wide users, like the Super Bowl was. This will happen while watching a Nevada vs. San Diego State basketball game at 11 PM on a Wednesday night. I'm certain it is the Roku.

    Since it works fine with everything else, and since I can watch whatever game I want on the iPad or Macbook, and the kids and wife remain happy, then I'm ok with the current set up. The TV in the living room is aging. When we get ready to upgrade, I'll move the roku we have to another room and get something different for the living room. Without any need for urgency I haven't spent time trying to fix or upgrade. I've thought about getting the Roku model with the built in ethernet port, and networking it over ethernet cable to the router instead of using Wifi.
