I am grandfathered on DirectTV Now’s channel lineup, but they did jack my monthly subscription by $10 to $50. The service remains unsteady, the DVR remains buggy and amazingly, since being rebranded to AT&TNow, it’s all got worse.
The DVR, in particular, is mostly unusable; while fast-forwarding it will bounce you back to the start of your show so you have to fast-forward to get back to where you are. Rinse, repeat. I have deleted and reinstalled the app (on multiple TVs) but it’s the same. I haven’t finished a show without having to sit through the commercials for weeks. Time for a change.
Anyone use Sling TV’s service? Their Blue package has all we need once the Hallmark and DVR upgrades are added. That’s $40/month all in with 50 hours of recording space (vs. 20 on the AT&T service). BUT, there are a ton of negative reviews out there - mostly about customer support but some technical issues - and local TV stations seems to be a big “?” Sling says you get them and reviewers say “maybe”.
Anyway, any comments on Sling TV would be greatly appreciated.
