If you are going the Vue route DO NOT get the Fire Stick. Get the box. Fire Stick performance is horrible. I use SlingTV and decided to try the Vue via Fire Stick. Terrible performance, good guide. I use a Roku3 for my NF, Hulu, Amazon, SlingTV, WatchESPN. I used to have to use the individual NBC Sports and Fox Sports Go apps but now SlingTV carries those channels.
Vue is great I guess if you use the Fire TV but here is why I dropped my subscription:
Now, Sony will say, but you CAN install the Vue app on your iPad and phones and tablets…
Yeah but you CANT use them outside your house! Whats the point?
With SlingTV I can stream ALL of my channels WITHOUT the “Mobile Restricted” bullshe-it hassle. I have SlingTV installed on all my stuff (laptop, Roku3, work iPhone, personal Samsung S7 Edge, iPad) and I can watch it anywhere I have data access.
The other sticking point that pisses me off is that if you dont have a Amazon Fire device or PS4 you can’t even sign up for the service. What the hell Sony? With SlingTV, its as easy as going to their website and creating an account. Done.
Like I said, Vue is cool and I like their Guide and channels as SlingTv does not have rights to the Discovery family of channels but other than that, I’m a very happy Sling customer.
Potatoe Potato stuff I guess.
