I live in a neighborhood that is an island when it comes to internet and cable services. We have about 30 homes, and no one is interested in bringing us services. The incumbent local area exchange is the only provider and they treat us that way. Our internet service is limited to about 24 Mbps by binding two DSL lines together and our prices are high. . We pay as much or more than the folks down the hill do for their fiber—from the same company!
In the past we have pitted Dish and DirecTV against each other and taken the better offer—switching every three years or so. But we are tired of the bills and crappy reception during rain and snow storms—not to mention the dish icing up and sometimes taking days to thaw.
I have been trying to use YouTube TV services on our main television by running it through the app on my AppleTV. But the app’s interface on the AppleTV is not very user friendly.
Has anyone found an elegant solution to streaming YouTubeTV in their Apple-centric home? I really don’t like the idea of buying an iMac mini just for this and—while I might get used to it—don’t really want to have a keyboard and mouse floating around.
My son suggested I purchase a small ChromeBox, but I’m back to the keyboard and mouse again… maybe that is the thing to do, though.
Anyone running YTTV happily? How are you doing it?
