Been on YouTubeTV for more than 2 years now, will never go back to cable. Streaming blows cable out of the water. Unlimited DVR is simply the best feature.
The DVR recordings may be unlimited in terms of space size, but you're only able to keep the recorded content for 9 months from the recorded date.

Can anyone please post a zip code that works?

I've tried 15 different zip codes, each one giving the error message:
"Sorry, but YouTube TV is not available in your area just yet."

Personal opinion: I loved YouTube TV. I used it almost exclusively on my Roku and it was intuitive, streamed perfectly, I had no issues with it at all other than the cost was higher then I could justify paying.

I have sling on a trial right now, I've had it a couple of times before. on my computer the interface seems fine, but I want to scream every single time I watch it on my Roku TV. The guide sucks the interface sucks I have constant streaming issues and it basically makes me crazy.
I decided to give the trial a try. I need some way to see the Superbowl. I have it on Roku, too. When I use the guide, it's pretty straight forward.

Something to consider is how many devices it will allow streaming at one time. Upstairs and downstairs TVs streaming at the same time? I didn't notice that in the signup..

I want to sign up for the trial

but every ZIP code tells me it's not available.

Can anyone share a zip code they used that worked? It's so confusing why it doesn't work.

Dang, I just signed up for the 5-day late Friday night. Actually I'm really not impressed - too many stations I watch that aren't included and some of the major networks. I also am on a free trial of Sling (blue/orange) and it's just not enough for me to 'cut the cord' yet. Has anyone heard anything about Amazon coming out with a streaming service (besides Prime Video)?

Yes! You can actually stream on three devices at once! Even at different locations, at least if they're geographically close. (I can watch something here, leave the tv on, drive over to my dad's about 5 miles away and watch the same thing over there.) I don't think that part has changed, but it's been a year since I've had it.

When I had it you could also set up multiple accounts - so that different users could see their own stuff.

Geez, I'm talking myself into getting it again.

Note that they are the only streaming service that has never sent me a "come back for a week free" or "we miss you here's a great deal" email. CBS All Access does that frequently, as do a couple of others, but never YouTubeTV.

Anything you've added for recording is "recorded" again if/when it airs again, and the 9 months resets starting with the date of the latest recording. Some things won't repeat, many will.

Youtube tv has more 1080p 60fps broadcasts. I found Slingtv to be inferior streaming quality

Can you watch things you DVR'd after the trail period is up?

For the ladies, this includes OWN. I've never seen an OWN free trial before.

I see a code for 30 day trial - but not sure there's a place to put a promo code in...?? 2 weeks just doesn't seem like enough to really decide if it's the right one to ditch Direct tv to..
