I'm finally doing it. Tired of paying cable box fees (how much do they end up getting per box, $5,000, $6,000 by the time the box goes out?) and overall high cable rates. Sony Vue Highlights: 70 channels for $35 a month (also has other options: 55 channels for $30 or 100 channels for $45) Streaming cable, all HD channels (no lag, no interruption with quality internet provider, I'd recommend at least 30 MB) Works well with a PS3 or PS4, but also with an iPad or Amazon Fire TV/Stick, no Android or PC support as of yet Has DVR capability with most channels allowing 30 minutes of pause, others only about 5 minutes (e.g., ESPN) Has Cloud storage for your saved programs, essentially unlimited, with 28 day max time storage Surround Sound Audio All major channels are there except A&E family (e.g., History), NFL Network, HBO Can Add Showtime for $12 a month No hidden fees, no equipment charges You can stream up to 5 devices simultaneously, the only caveat is not on two PS3s or PS4s, but one PS3 and one PS4 is allowed Machinima channel is available for gamers No contract, you can quit on a dime I'm currently doing a 7 day trial before going all in next week. I've got AT&T Uverse 18 MB for internet and for the most part the service was really good (Again, I'd recommend going higher than this and preferably someone other than UVerse probably). I'm also switching to Time Warner for internet with 50 MB plan. The picture quality is very good HD. The response with the PS3 is adequate as far as changing channels. It probably takes about 2-3 seconds to change channels. I'd highly recommend buying a remote for the PS3 as this will make navigation much easier. The guide and interface is probably the biggest thing to get used to. There is no support for direct channel input (e.g., enter 235 to get to ESPN). You basically navigate through an x-y channel guide grid. It's also backwards from a standard guide with the channels going across and the time going down. You can set your favorite channels and it will put these first in your guide in alphabetical order (no way to change this and make it totally customizable), and then it will place the rest of your channels starting again in alphabetical order after your preferred list. Also, I can't seem to figure out a way to go to the previous channel so I can switch back and forth between two shows. I suspect major upgrades to the guide will be done in the future to make it easier for people to give up cable. Pause, rewind and ff are decent but not quite as smooth as on my uverse. Still, it works and does the job. Here is a link to their packages (Core for $35 is the one I'm going with): https://www.playstation.com/en-us/network/vue/#5 Some big markets have live local channels (except for CBS which is not on board with Sony Vue as of this writing). Other markets have local channels (again, except CBS) but have a 24 hour delay on demand service setup. I'm getting indoor antennas for my TVs so that's not that big of a deal if I want to watch golf on the weekend on CBS/NBC. For you sports enthusiasts, the following sports channels are available: ESPN ESPN 2 ESPN News ESPN U SEC Network (Alternate channels not available) Fox Sports 1 Fox Sports 2 NBS Sports Fox Regional Channels BTN (Big 10 Network) beIN Sports Golf Channel NFL Network, NFL Redzone, NBA TV, MLB Network, Tennis Channel, Gol, ESPN Classics, CBS Sports, SEC Alternate are not yet available. Interestingly enough, 3 Big 10 Alternate channels are available, so I suspect the SEC Alternate channels are coming at some point. I think they'll probably end up with an add on package for $5 or $10 for a lot of these channels.
