Oh gosh, the Apple TV will be a far superior quality than the Sky Q box. The Sky Q box is a basic Amstrad box with very basic components. Sky Q lacks HDR and DV too. It also does not feature auto frame rate switching. In the UK, it's set at 50fps - not good for any American film/shows etc.What's Netflix quality like via ap4k tv
Return of Star Trek discovery se2
I cancelled Netflix sub late 2018
Any reason why I should re activate Netflix via Apple TV rather than Skyq.
I mean picture quality and sound wise.
Honestly on my 2015 4K (non hdr/non Dolby vision) t.v.Oh gosh, the Apple TV will be a far superior quality than the Sky Q box. The Sky Q box is a basic Amstrad box with very basic components. Sky Q lacks HDR and DV too. It also does not feature auto frame rate switching. In the UK, it's set at 50fps - not good for any American film/shows etc.
Unless you are watching Sky's satellite, i'd heavily recommend using the Apple TV instead. it's in another century by comparison.
Netflix on the Apple TV 4K is outstanding! Picture quality is pure and crisp! Just like watching say a good quality iTunes film.
Try it for free for a month and cancel it if you are not convinced buddy.
A lot of people don’t consider this, and they should.The final thing I will say is to remember that you don't need every single service at once.
I will have to check out YouTube TV. I was never a bit fan of YouTube as I watch videos on the service but its only when I google something.People ask me this question a lot and I always ask them what they are interested in watching. I'm a sports fan so I'm interested in having certain sports channels. Other people don't care at all about sports or like a different sport than I would follow so the best service or combination of services will be based on what you are looking to watch.
This is just a general guide mentioning many of the services. Also, don't fall into the trap of buying the craziest internet package. More speed is not a bad thing so I would prefer a 25+ mbps connection, but you can absolutely run any of these services with a basic 10-25 mbps connection. I've even used these with a connection speed as low as 3mbps.
Sports fans will likely want a subscription to a live tv streaming service. My personal favorite it Youtube TV, but other solid options are playstation vue, sling, hulu with live tv. Your choice here will depend on what sport is most important to you or what additional channels you would also like. All I care about is the espn set, fox sports sets, and other random networks are just bonuses which is why I go with YouTube TV. My dad goes with playstation vue because they have the majority of the sports networks as well as having hgtv, food network, etc. for my mom.
If you are not into sports but would still like some live tv stations, Philo is a great option for under $20. You will get many of the popular networks without paying the premium for sports channels.
In addition to Live TV services, you always want to look at netflix, hulu, amazon prime video, cbs all access, espn+, and the typical premium channels. These various services will provide on-demand content which is my personal favorite way to go.
Also, don't forget to grab an antenna to take advantage of free channels over the air.
The final thing I will say is to remember that you don't need every single service at once. Personally, I subscribed to Youtube TV the first of September for college football and I will be dropping it in a month or so when college basketball is done. You can get hulu for a month or two and then drop it for netflix or maybe only pick up a specific premium service for a certain show and then drop it later. For me, that is where I really start to save.
Why the need to have the Hulu, Netflix, and Prime??My wife and I have the following services after cutting the cord several years ago:
Directv Now is the only service I would consider getting rid of. Especially now that football season is officially over. But for $5/month HBO, you can't beat that. We'll still make use of the service since we DVR some shows that aren't available on Hulu.
- Directv Now w/HBO add on (with access to HBO Go app)
- Hulu w/no ads
- Amazon Prime Video
You are one of I can’t tell you how many people I’ve heard say that. It’s a very unfortunate decision they have made to use the PlayStation name, but they are available on Apple TV, fire tv, Roku and of course PlayStations.The Playstation VUE never crossed my mind just off the simple fact that I do not own a playstation so I never thought of giving it a try.
Youtube TV seems solid just doesnt have the 2 channels I watch the most which are the ID channel and A&E.
3 streams at the same time seems reasonable but with 6 accounts they should have an add on to pay more. It's not that uncommon to have 4 people in a separate room watching TV.
[doublepost=1549454732][/doublepost]The Playstation Vue gives you 10 accounts However you can stream on 5 Tvs without and extra cost which is great! The could storage is lacking though compared to youtube tv but they each have their pros/cons.
[doublepost=1549454954][/doublepost]Upon further research neither PS Vue or yTV has the a&e channel
Why the need to have the Hulu, Netflix, and Prime??
I am running a trial of Hulu and it is just ok so far. Haven't found much too much. Seems some shows are missing seasons/episodes.I subscribe to Netflix and Hulu with no commercials. During September thru January I subscribe to Hulu Live also for the college football season. In January I drop the live. This has worked well for me and costs me 30 dollars a month and 62 during the college football season. I find plenty of movies to choose from and TV shows for that occasional view.
Hulu isn’t really about past seasons. It’s about current tv. It’s a great “catch up on last night’s tv” service. All the other stuff there is just a bonus. IMO.I am running a trial of Hulu and it is just ok so far. Haven't found much too much. Seems some shows are missing seasons/episodes.
I have also found since I have DTV Now as a trail that I typically watch more on that and it is user friendly.
