Sadly, this service was great because of its integration with the TV App. Now the only other option with the same integration is ATT TV Now, but they don't have NFL Network or Redzone...

I previously used YouTube TV and loved it - but prefer the benefits of integration.

Who here is using ATT TV Now and can share some of their experiences?

As far as I can see - none of the other services offer NFL programming besides Sling Blue.

I believe FuboTV has NFL Network if you want to check that out.

I was with AT&T TV Now for about a year. It was pretty good for the most part. But with them raising the price of the service, I just didn't see any value staying with them.

I have Hulu w/ Live TV now and it's been pretty good. There have been some hiccups with their servers, which interfered with the live stream of some NFL games. Both otherwise, the service has been good and it's supported by the TV app.

We had PS Vue several years ago. They were the first with regional sports, so it included NESN with Red Sox and Bruins coverage. Then they raised their price. Not surprised that they priced themselves out of business. We switched to Sling blue at 1/2 the price. It has NFL Network, but not Red Zone. Of course, if you want ESPN (we didn't) you have to get Sling orange, too. Their Roku and Amazon Fire apps work fine... no idea about TV app integration or if you have to run a separate app on the Apple TV.

Go with Sling Blue and the $10 Sports add-on, you'll have both NFL Network and Redzone. The thing I like about Sling is you can switch to the Orange package from Blue anytime you want and then back again so you can also get ESPN. I know of no other services that let you change packages as you want with no additional fees.

Is there a limit to how many times you can switch per month? I never knew you could do that.

I use and very much like ATTTVNOW. Dolby 5.1 on a lot of channels; picture is outstanding; and you can use it on multiple devices at the same time. My only complaint is that it is through ATT; so it's only a matter of time before they F it up somehow.

No limit. I wasn't aware either and then a received an email from Sling before the college football season started and they stated you can switch back and forth to watch any game from either orange or Blue so long as you are a Blue subscriber (obviously)

Good to know! Why would anyone subscribe to both?

Multiple people watching simultaneously, and watching channels that are exclusive to either package.

Plus the hassle of constantly needing to switch which package you have depending on what channel you want.

Can someone confirm Hulu Live integrates with the TV app. I know Hulu does but seem to remember trying Live and it didn’t.

What's a lot of channels? That's a serious question, btw, in case it doesn't come across that way.

I tried DT Now when they ran the Apple TV promo and none of the regular channels were in 5.1. A few on demand movies were but nothing else. Has that changed? That is the one major gripe I have against all these streaming live TV providers.
