USTV Now: any informed opinions?

Post by NoVaDamer on Fri Feb 03, 2017 7:43 pm

I don't even have a TV yet, and I was looking for something to give me access to the basic US network TV channels, so I am trying the free introductory offer from USTV Now. It appears to be a service designed to provide US military personnel access to US media, although now it has expanded to a larger US expat market. It streams 7 channels for free to your device (laptop, tablet, phone), with an option to upgrade service to more channels and a virtual DVR for $29-39 USD @ month, with no long term contract. So far it is working well for me at La Reserva. I guess the biggest challenge is "no internet=no tv." Anybody else here have experience with it?

I subscribed for about 6 months. It works pretty good, but sometimes their servers get a overloaded and the stream will stall. You of course have to have a good internet connection yourself, but I sometimes had problems when I knew it wasn't my connection because other things like Netflix were fine. But this didn't happen a lot so for the most part OK. I finally got a Shaw dish setup though. You have to buy the initial equipment but after that the monthly fee is the same or less than USTVnow with a lot more channels.

I rarely watch TV but when I do I use USTVNow. It suits my needs perfectly.

I agree with OasisCloud.

If you want to watch Fox, this is one you can use. If you have a android device or you can use blue stak for windows. I like mobdro.

Thanks, all. I used USTV Now to watch the SuperBowl, and it worked well, with the exception of a few minutes of freezing in the second quarter. I think that was probably a good test of the stream capacity. I will also check out the links you provided, SoS.
