    I get BYUTv via the Roku app but I generally just watch it over the air with my antenna and Tablo tuner. Tablo DVR is fantastic by the way.
    Live games on BYUTv are usually also simulcast on KBYU channel 11 locally.

    Since I'm outside of Utah, the only broadcast of BYUtv we get is the DirecTV feed, which is not HD. So I use the Roku for most all BYUtv content.

    KBYU permanently simulcasts BYUtv now.

    We found that a relatively unsophisticated hacker could change channels, play offensive content, or crank up the volume, which might be deeply unsettling to someone who didn’t understand what was happening.
    OMG. That sounds awful.

    Are you getting an OTA antenna when you cut the cord? Get the antanna now and you won’t have any reason to wait until after the SB.

    I just discovered that Plex offers a local OTA dvr option. I already have Plex Pass and a Plex server set up. I just ordered a digital OTA tuner and antenna so I am going to give it a shot. If this works I am adding YoutubeTV and cutting the cable.

    BYUTV. I want to be able to record and watch BYU sports.

    EDIT: One nice feature of the Plex DVR I am anxious to try is a feature that automatically removes commercials.

    Emailed BYUTV to see if they have any plans to get on YoutubeTV. Their response. Boo.

    Thanks for your email. We unfortunately do not have any active plans to add BYUtv to the YouTubeTV channel line up. In the meantime, you can access our programming on byutv.org and on the BYUtv app available on iOS and Android devices, Roku, Fire TV and Xbox One and Apple TV.

    Have a great day!

    Reply and tell them that the functionality of their apps is terrible, especially the dvr, and would be much better on youtubetv.

    The DVR functionality on the BYUtv Roku app seems to be pretty good. What problems are you having with their apps?

    Why pay for Youtube TV when OTA is free (except for the Tablo DVR which is a heck of a lot cheaper than YouTube TV)?

    YouTube is only offering the top 4 OTA channels in most markets. In the Boise market (and probably most others), that means the local affiliates for ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC. While that probably covers most of what people would want, it excludes any other available OTA channels, including the digital sub-channels of the local affiliates and, in the SLC market, BYUtv (as JL mentioned). For example, the Boise State basketball games used to be carried on 7.2, the subchannel of the local NBC affiliate. There would be at least 3-4 people in the area that would be pretty upset if they couldn't get those games anymore.

    So Hulu just said they were raising my price. Football season is over now, which is the only TV programming I care about enough to pay for, so I just cancelled Hulu.

    I'll sign up with Youtube or Hulu or PlaystationTV or Sling or whatever gives me the best deals and options when football season rolls around again.

    This discussion began with Tick saying he was cutting the cord and getting YoutubeTV after the superbowl. Then chrisenrut said just get an OTA antenna now and cut the cord now. My question was, why do you need the antenna for the SB? YoutubeTV already has the top local networks, including whichever one has the superbowl. And it has a built-in DVR. I get that there are other OTA channels that a few people might like, but that doesn't fit into the original discussion of cutting the cord after the SB.

    But whatever. Enjoy your Tablo DVR.
