YouTube TV is the newest player in the live TV streaming market. I have already tried Sling and Hulu Live (sorry DirecTV you lost my business a long time ago). So, YouTube TV was a natural “must try” app for me.
I really enjoyed the experience of trying out YouTube TV, and I also learned a valuable lesson. The thing about all of these live TV providers is they have access to basically the same channels.
So, what you are really looking to compare is:
- Device limits
- User experience
After the free trial, I kept my YouTube TV membership. It’s hard to beat the value of having unlimited DVR cloud recording (Hulu limits you to 60 hours) and being able to stream on up to 6 devices (Hulu Live limits you to 2 devices at once).
Ultimately, you should pick the one that is best for your budget and your needs. What do you think?
