I think you are just seeing things with that. Your TV could also be using different settings based on input. DTV and streaming shouldn't be any different.


I'm interested in what is coming, but until I can watch like I do now, I won't change. Need to change channels instantly, pause multiple channels and flip between them, record things and keep them as long as I want.

I'm worried cheap pricing is done though. Everyone wants their piece and that means having to pay individually for a lot of channels or streaming costing the same as cable.

Re: Cord cutting

Cancelled Direct TV with ATT internet and landline. Ended up getting Hulu with Live TV and Netflix. Should have done this years ago. Only thing I will miss is the MLB Network as I get all the local live stuff unlike PS Vue.

Why don't you get local stuff with Vue?

Not all locations have all the locals.

ps vue uses alot of bandwith not necessary speed im guessing because they try to push out 1080p at 60fps on just about every channel compared to other services

No, it's pretty clear actually from the ticker on news stations like Fox News, CNN etc. DirecTV has a tiny bit of jaggies/fuzziness, it's not hugely bad or anything but you can see it. Playstation Vue has no jaggies and is crystal clear.

Yeah Columbus has all but NBC. Someone told me in the Vue forums on Facebook that you can get the app for Xbox One to view NBC Live shows and I did, then logged in with my Vue credentials and it worked.

Sucks though if you want to use a PS4 because I saw no NBC app for it.

Maybe it varies person to person but when I had Vue live sports were a mess and unwatchable for me. Directv Now has been perfect for sports.
