Wanna ditch comcast, dish, or att poo-verse? There are essentially two reasonable options: SlingTV and Playstation Vue. First visit the verge and their amazing online tool to see what services you need have a nearly full fledged cord-cutting experience (see that here). We liked Playstation Vue.
All of the blogs out there talk at length about Playstation Vue, however, none focus on how it performs on Amazon's $39 FireTV Stick. I spent a week with it and here's what I found. Remember, this is a review of the service on a cheap-o Amazon FireTV Stick.
I'll check back in to see if sony has improved the interface to be more useful. I hope they streamline to coding on the Amazon FireTV Stick app to smooth out the jitters and increase the quality to 1080. It would be ideal for the "DVR" to allow you to start a live show from the beginning. It's all heading in the right direction but not totally ready.
