I never thought that, if I actually did, I would do it in the stretch run of football season.
I have been a Direct TV subscriber for 20 years. But the price constantly being jacked told me DTV didn't value my loyalty all that much.
And then a much lower priced alternative appeared...YouTubeTV.
I ran them parallel for 10 days. Switched back and forth on the same football games several times to compare picture quality. I ensured that I'd be able to get any Ohio State football games no matter where it appeared. And unless the Bucks are ever on NFL Network exclusively, I'm good.
The recording of games is actually easier (better) on YTTV than DTV. The capacity is unlimited. I do have to give up several old games I had on my DVR but it's a small price to pay.
All in all, going from $225/mo to $50/mo pays for a lot of minor inconvenience.
