For those cord cutters using Sling to get ESPN, there's a new option, PlayStation Vue. Depending on where you live, it's either $30 or $40 a month and up. The base package includes ESPN, ESPN 2, FS1 and FS2. Hopefully they will add CBS Sports. They seem to be selling it at a loss because it's 55+ channels with multiple streams vs 1 at a time for Sling with about half the channels. It also has access for about 10 channel apps including WatchESPN. Picture quality looks better than Sling imo. There is a 7 day free trial now. 

 

You need a PS3/4 or Amazon Fire TV. There is also an iOS app. 

 

In the fall there will be a streaming package offered by ATT/DirecTV that some expect will have an NFL Sunday Ticket add on.

It has a free 7 day trial. I like the picture quality too. It has cloud DVR and catch up on some programming. Just be aware of data caps. I have a Comcast business account because the 4 of us use 700gb-1tb a month.

I hope USF adds CBS Sports. We are only on there (sometimes) because the other American teams are on there.

Is it out currently? Will seriously consider. Problem is the **** cable companies jack up your internet if you don't have a package so sometimes it's not worth it to cut the chord and add the other streaming sites.

Yes it's out now. I got a Comcast Business Internet account, $69.99/m, no cap. Didn't need to prove I had a business. The speed is slower though, we get 18mbps. But it's fine for us.
