    I've read that you must have an active YouTube TV subscription to make the Live tab appear. It doesn't pull in channels from Google's Live Channels app.

    Noob question. How does YouTube TV even work? Are you provided with a DVR? How do recordings actually work and is there a feature similar to OnePass where you can record an entire season?

    I had YouTube tv for a month, it’s a tv steaming service without contract so you can cancel anytime.

    DVR is unlimited space so you can record without worrying about running out of space. From what I remember you can set the dvr to record a full season of your choice

    You said you had it for a month, why only a month? Why did you drop it? What did you move onto and why? Is it better? Worse?

    I switched to FuboTV since it meets all my soccer viewing needs. Everyone’s preferences are different. If you are basketball fan fubo will not be for you since they dropped turner channels like TNT. It all depends on your needs

    Thanks. I basically just need the local channels, Hallmark Channel, UP, CNN, MSNBC, Comedy Central and USA Network, and a way to record programs from these channels or at least a way to automatically save them online so I can watch later.

    Not physical DVR, cloud. Honestly, it is pretty awesome. I don't ever see myself going back to TIVO. I still haven't sold the equipment, but don't see any reason why I would come back. Add to your "library," which is Youtube TV's version of "season pass" as many shows as you want, it's unlimited. All shows will stay for 9 months. Think of it like surveillance loop recording, the oldest stuff that has reach 9 months will get deleted. No more tivo dvr taking space, tivo minis in different rooms. You just launch the youtube tv app on any smart device you have. I will definitely check out this Sabrina to see how the Youtube TV integration looks.

    You’re better off with YouTube tv! I would suggest trying the one week trial it’s worth it

    Heck, if you know someone that will give you their cable credentials, for $80 a year you can get Channels DVR. Along with an hdhomerun you can get your OTA and incorporate cable through TV everywhere by adding their credentials. It integrates the channels that participate into your OTA lineup on the grid. As long as it's not protected content, you can record it. I use my mom's fios info. She uses my prime. Her and my sister use my Netflix.

    How would you update a remote? Can't say I've heard of that, offhand, except for maybe on XBOX One. Do you have to wire it or can it be done wireless?

    YMMV depending on service provider... I got my cousin's credentials before just to see how it works. Spectrum TV will allow you very few channels, most are grayed out and require you to log into your "HOME" internet. Now, this may work better if my cousin had a different broadband provider and only subscribed to their cable TV?

    I think the remote update is on the server side

    With fios I have to update every month via my phone's hotspot since I have fios internet only. Comcast I'd be fine.

    Regardless, it's cable you weren't paying for before, and it beats having to use an app like ones doing before for NBC sports.
