Did HBO pull their free content from Amazon Prime? We have been watching Six Feet Under (now in Season 3) and when we went to watch an episode last night, we had a purchase option rather than just viewing the episode.
Entire 'Ed Sullivan Show' Catalogue Hits Streaming Platforms
The story *says* that, but the only details are that selected performances from the Ed Sullivan Show are hitting YouTube. I am utterly baffled.
Yeah, if the deal is with UMe, as the story says (i.e., Universal Music Group), there's a lot of "Ed Sullivan Show" content that still wouldn't be covered by those rights.
I have the Beatles performances on the Ed Sullivan show on DVD (at least the first two in NY and Miami...or as Ed called it My-am-eh). It's the whole show in it's entirely (including commercials!) So I wonder if they can stream something similar.
WHAT THE EVERY LOVING Hell?
YouTubeTV price jumping to $65????
YouTube TV Hikes Price by 30% to $65 per Month – Variety
The old Comcast trick. Add channels/speed, follow up with a non-negotiable price hike later.
See how the Wife factor goes, but I could be on board with dropping it flat out and going fully streaming or just cheap hulu
I'm surprised that it took them this long since when Hulu raised it's hulu live prices for youtube to do the same. And what a great selection of channels they added as part of that price hike . With the lack of anything new really and no sports, I dropped the live tv part for the time being. With F1 coming back soon, I might have to reassess that decision, but right now it seems like it's an awful lot more to pay just to watch one extra thing.
As I mentioned in some other thread. I tried the Youtube TV 5 day trial, and cancelled. This was just a week or two ago. Really nothing I care that much about. Plus, I pay for a number of streaming services that give me more options than I could possibly ever watch. I do pay for Youtube Premium. There is infinitely more stuff I find interesting on Youtube than on Youtube TV.
Why not get an F1 TV sub?
I've been complaining lately about our somewhat minimal usage of YTTV. This sizable increase makes my decision easy.
I'm out, immediately.
Edit: Just a few clicks, easy peasy.
So, let me get this straight, you won't pony up the cost of two fancy Starbucks drinks per month? OK...yeah, it's the "principle" of the thing. The gall of Google to do something so terrible. And, lest ye think I'm a Google fanboy, I'm totally immersed in the ecosystem.
Maybe if 30% of subscribers do that, they'll rethink it.
The "new content" isn't a 30% bump.
It's not as if the providers (cable and otherwise) have lowered their fees even though all the sports channels have been nothing but talk for months.
I also suspect contact will be lacking in about a year, since most production has been shut down.
It's quite a dilemma. In my house, we find ourselves watching less and less cable TV programming, so it's value to us keeps going down, while the price keeps going up. But we still watch some things on it, and it's really nice to have it available when we want to watch something on a whim. (We're not actually YouTube TV subscribers, yet, but we were thinking of switching.)
I honestly didn't even realize that was available for the US. Hmm, $80 (presumably $60 after the discount they're advertising) for live, or $27 for the on demand. The live stuff would basically be the cost of turning hulu live back on for me for a couple months. But realistically I have to admit I seldom watch the races live given the time zones, so that on demand pricing is actually a definite possibility for now.
Hmm, although the replays might only be 2 days later, even on their more expensive package. Whereas with hulu live the espn feed is available later that same day. Hmm, pondering pondering.
I'm also out on YouTubeTV. It was barely worth the cost to me at $50/month, given what I was watching (a few shows and live sports which are currently non-existent). Adding 8 channels I'll never watch and an additional cost of $15/month to the bargaining table tips the scales quite easily for me.
We're in the same market. What's your plan for Live Locals & Sports?
Locast will bring me most of my locals, but NESN and NBC Sports are not in the mix. Ugh.
Rabbit ears aren't an option for me - I'd only get Channel 9 reliably. Hulu Live doesn't carry NESN, so I'd have to go with whatever streaming option the NHL is providing to watch the B's. I don't really watch locals except when the Pats are on. Not sure what to do there. Haven't really evaluated the options in too much detail yet. Decision was made easier by the fact that there's nothing new on TV right now - that will change when sports start back up.
