I live between St.louis and Kansas city, so FSM should be a local channel for us. Now unless I want to pay 84 a month, I can’t watch the Blues or the Cardinals
Jim Kimble says
My answer is highly subjective — my needs won’t necessarily be yours. But I think Hulu with Live TV is a better deal overall because you’re also getting Hulu’s on-demand service included. That has Hulu Originals and new episodes from a number of major channels the day after they air. I use Hulu a lot to catch up on prior seasons of shows, and for new episodes of favorite shows.
If that doesn’t provide much value for you, then you should go with YouTube TV. It’s a solid service, and I expect they’ll work out a deal with Sinclair to keep FOX Sports. I hope that helps.
