I think Philo may be a better value. The Sling Roamio has a DVR, but this new one I posted does too and it is much cheaper.

I am about to ditch my basic cable in favor of OTA combined with DirectTVNow, Netflix, And Amazon Prime. Any others out there proved to be worth something?

Shit happens. I'll give it some time, it seems to be working well beyond that. Are you using the AirTV box?

The integration between OTA and sling.tv is awesome though, seamless I would say. The box is a Android TV box, so I'm sure there is a certain amount of customization that could be done for power users. Box outputs 4k, and seems to have good wireless performance overall (I've used netflix/sling.tv on it). It's a neat concept, but a little bit expensive to start up and I'm not sure I'm sold on Sling, even if it does seem to work very well when it works.
