Now that I have a fair amount of time under my belt with both services. I have to say that when it comes to quality and navigation, YouTubeTV takes the lead spot when it comes to streaming TV. They still need to work on getting a couple of key channels however, which is the reason I’m still sticking with Hulu for now. Missing History and A & E is a deal breaker for me, but it may not be for you.
Another great function of YouTubeTV, the unlimited DVR space, which is the way all should be as the services cannot be saving the same show for each customer…that would be horribly wasteful and simply idiotic to do. So why is Hulu not providing unlimited…I’m sure it is coming once they see their market share slide over to YouTubeTV.
Neither Hulu or YouTubeTV have any contracts to sign, sign up and cancel anytime. The costs are better with YouTubeTV based on what you get if you don’t care about not watching History or A & E. YouTubeTV is $49.99 per month for local channels, unlimited DVR, 6 named accounts and 3 streaming devices. Hulu is $5.99 per month for just Hulu’s content or $54.99 per month for all their channels, Live TV and 50 hours of DVR. You can add unlimited devices, 200 hours of DVR and other features as desired.
Have a lot of family members, roommates or just a lot of TV’s on at the same time in your home? Hulu is the best if you get the best subscription as then you can stream to an unlimited number of devices. YouTubeTV does allow for 6 accounts to be named and 3 streaming devices per home.
There are others like Sling, AT&T Watch TV and AT&T TV Now as well, but these are budget and mediocre TV services, not the best.
