  1. What even is the point of YouTube TV now? It’s just as expensive, if not more, than cable now. At one point it was a good cable alternative, “unplug” etc… not anymore, prices have gotten so high it’s not for that anymore. So why do I need it huh YouTube?

    1. Maybe than the promo rates, but where can you get cable TV, at a non promo rate for under 100 bucks a month?

      All the online stuff is getting pricey but for a similar TV package from comcast in my area its $130ish.

    Its for cable cutters that cant live without sports lol.
    Personally I hardly watch any TV at all so the basic Sling TV works for me. And the free YT garbage.
    Wife has Netflix and Amazon. I think were at around $ 50 in “TV services”.

  3. I’m gonna call BS on this. The networks have not upgraded their gear to 4K yet… hell Fox is still on 720p with very few exceptions. I think there might have been a couple Nascar races done in 4K as a test/PoC. They are in a multi-way standoff with the other networks… “Why should be upgrade when XYZ hasn’t” etc

    1. If I’m remembering correctly, a couple of football games as well. I tried to watch one and I’ve never seen HDR so bad in my life lol
