BTW: Their service is basically unwatchable right now because of all the streaming errors! Pack your patience with this one!

Agree with being worthless. Try watching in evening and it's lag city at best. Think they should of went slow to beta test and trickle more users in to allow for expansion. Reminds me of the iks dish servers.

I did a 7 day free trial and the service was worthless because of all the errors and streaming issues. A month free is good if you are ok with it not being reliable, but I would not choose them over slingtv or PS Vue after the free month.

I came from PS Vue and DTV Now isn't that great, like how everyone states. I've had to call customer service twice because I couldn't watch the Warriors play on CSN. Not to mention it doesn't work with Roku or consoles. Got it mainly for AppleTV and the promo $35 rate with more channels. There are tradeoffs for both.

PS Vue sucks on fire stick, but works decently on Roku... it needs a fairly powerful device to work well imo... really good service tho

happy customer, no buffer, maybe an occasional glitch. Solid selection and free for three months after flipping the ATV on CL for $100 easily. 20meg DSL, FTV2 and Chrome tabs are great.

Don't listen to others, see for yourself, that is why they call it a free trial.

3 days in not so bad stream..occasionally it will just stop and i have to reload. Also after i figured out to disable su in root for the crappy app,it worked decent enough. I might pay 35 since i dont pay for reg cable but no more when the jack the price up in a few months.

Awesome service. I've been watching it for a couple of weeks now. Yes, there is an occasional buffering rectangle. For me, maybe 1-2 times a day. But it clears up in a second or two. I've been watching all morning and not a single hiccup. Easy and cheap replacement for cable. I cut the cord today. Saving $50 over my old cable plan AND I'm getting more channels.

I hope the 3 month prepay to get a ATV offer is still good 3 months from now. I'll cancel and do it all again for another ATV.

So far I know they have had 2 outages total since launch, I'd say that's not bad for a new product.

Also, streaming wise its been rather good, from time to time it will pause but picks back up a few seconds later.

Sounds like the people whining after only a week of service need to beef up their internets some, dialup won't cut it here.

Also, using an Apple TV 4th gen, app is probably one of the best on the platform to date, works great.

Service has been working flawlessly for us so not sure why people still experience problems.
