DirecTV Now (AT&T TV Now) doesn't carry a local ABC station for any subscribers in the entire Brazos Valley. I checked zip codes from Bryan to Navasota & Caldwell to Iola- they have CBS & NBC but no ABC.

I think I'll be switching to Hulu or PS Vue, they both list either KHOU or KXXV as ABC local stations. Does anyone have any experience with either streaming option?

If you have a cable subscription or can borrow someone's, you can stream it using the ESPN app. See discussion below on the thread from Sunday about the UH /OU game.

That isn't borrowing.

My son "borrows" my ESPN app and MLB app logins all the time. Since I'm not using them, I'm allowing him to "borrow" them. Is there a problem?

I love YouTube TV. Gets all the local stations and is really easy to watch outside of home on a computer or tablet(Masters week or March Madness)

I'm surprised this isn't all over the place. This is the first I've heard of it.

I live in Wellborn, have DirecTV and the guide shows that it will be on channel 25. Already set to record the game.

We've never looked back. Great service, great quality, and great value (didn't have to do any 'ad ons' to get SECN).

DirecTV <> DirecTV Now

These are 2 different services.

Nah. Theft of service and programming is highly encouraged.

sign up for a free 7 day trial of Hulu + live. You get ABC.

Multiple ways of skinning a cat. We like Razoo's for sports TV. They do a good job tuning into the games you want to see.

Yeah. That's really "theft of service". I PAID for the damn service.

YouTube TV is by far the best streaming "cable".

6 unique logins. We all have our own shows DVRd. Unlimited dvr space. I record all epl, Bundasleiga, NCAA, and NFL games.

These threads, once again, remind me how absolutely ridiculous it is that BCS is linked with the Killeen/Temple/Waco broadcast region. It's a rip-off of those stations and their sponsors. I will NEVER, EVER, EVER travel to that area to purchase anything, when Houston is an hour away....

/FCC rant over

Legally, you can stream up to 3 devices at the same time. Other than that, there are no restrictions.

Letting your children use the login when you are not using it is not theft of service. Bunch of negative nancies.

He's taking about the streaming service Directv Now, not satellite Directv as was already pointed out in the thread

We use hulu + live. No add ons for SECN, and the prices all seemed similar. Chose Hulu for the movies and shows available (and had all the network channels we watch).

We love it, and I love getting away from cable/satellite

Considering the number of people that live here that are originally from the Houston area compared to the Waco / Temple area, it's just stupid.

Its ok for kids to let the parents have their login every once in awhile too!

And it will likely never change. Congress would have to pressure the FCC, and Rep. Flores (or whomever is next) would prefer one media buy in the Waco/BCS market than to have to go into Houston. So we're stuck watching about traffic problems in Waco....

Yeah I'm going to go with you not having a clue what you're talking about. Not sure why ATT TV doesn't have an ABC affiliate. They're the only streaming service with locals that doesn't. YouTube, HULU and PSVue all have one. It's just an odd quirk in their product offering. That aside it's pretty much the same channel lineup you get on DirecTV it just costs less. At this point if you're still on satellite and not streaming I'm curious as to why you want to pay more than you have to.

So I can watch the game?

I pay the same/less for directv and get more channels than I would with streaming. For me, I'd have to pay for more than one streaming service to get the channels needed which throws away any savings at all. Even just YouTube tv would only save $15 a month. Not worth it

Instant pot, Convection Oven and Vacuum Cleaner ads are in the channel count but aren't real channels. I'm glad to be free of them on YTV

How much do you pay for DirecTv? I was paying over/around $200 per month. Now I pay like $75 total for all my services.

When can you cancel? Streaming has no contracts. Do you really watch all those channels? If you do then that's great. For us it's a key to ESPN and college football and baseball. We actually go entire months where the DTV app doesn't get opened. We watch ESPN, Netflix and HBO which is free through the DTVN subscription.

Look, I'm really not going to debate satellite v streaming. We all define value differently. We initially went to Sling TV as it's the most stripped down service there is and we were amazed when we saw how much less TV we watched after made that switched. Frankly money was the motivator initially but we're significantly happier than we were when our time revolved around the TV. Now we sit down to watch something specific and we might go days without turning the TV on at all. That's not going to be the case for everyone, just our experience.
