This is where I'm at and have stuck with YTTV.  Although I kind of question whether there will be another solution.   I don't think ESPN cares enough about LHN to prioritize pushing it on other platforms and I wonder if part of the agreement with ATT Now (or anyone else) is that ESPN won't offer it as a stand alone product.   Who knows but you would think if there weren't some contractual agreement in place that it would already be on ESPN+ (or you could order it as an add on).

Yeah, that all makes the complete sense.  There must be some kind of non-compete agreement in place between ESPN and AT&T.  And I agree, I don't see ESPN putting a dime more than they have to into LHN from here on.  ATT&T backend money deal is probably enough to somewhat slow the bleeding for them.

Ok look. My professional life is full of making decisions so I’m to the point I don’t want to make decisions in my personal life anymore.

 

I don’t want to pick healthcare programs, or energy companies or home and car insurance carriers etc etc so I either hire or beg people to do it for me.

 

I know listening to horn fans, shaggy, surly advice will usually either land you in jail or alone in this world but would some of you please just pick a got damn service for me to use when PlayStation Vue ends? Something with similar content?

 

My only stipulation is that I don’t want cable again, there is a monopoly in my area and I refuse to go back to those assholes, on principle, who wouldn’t give a penny discount even after five years with them.

 

Cost doesn’t matter I just want quality content and quality of picture (no reddit streaming stuff )

 

I need the LHN so that may rule out YouTube TV and ATT.

 

Is sling box my only real option at this point? Does sling box require any special equipment like its own receiver etc?

 

I have both Apple TV and Chromecast and an iPhone and IMac if that matters

 

Thank you I’m advance for your non smart ass responses...my future happiness is in your hands.

Post PS Vue, I am pretty sure AT&T Now and Sling are the only ways to get LHN legally without having a cable package.

This is my understanding as well.

Odd email from Vue suggesting YouTube as an alternative. At least January is free.

They apparently monetized their subscriber contact info. YoutubeTV was the highest bidder.

How do you get local channels with Sling?  We'll need that for live sports. It seems you need an antenna and switch between inputs? PITA.

I would also like to know this.

After checking their website, ATT says I can’t get their streaming service at my home location. Does that make any sense?

Doesn't make sense.  Ya got internet? Then you should be able to stream any service.

Exactly, I have Verizon internet and use PSVue for my streaming.

I'm curious how quickly the streaming services (ESPN+, NBCSports, etc) drop PSVue from their providers. Wondering if I can use my PSVue login after it is dropped to watch through those apps/websites.
