Anyone tried it? I just signed up for the lowest tier ($29.99) plan, free for a week. I will probably cancel it after the week, since it's just not ready for general public yet. I already have Sling and hoped to replace it, but Vue is too new and has too many bugs.

It will offer many more channels than Sling and you will have DVR too. I mainly wanted to get FX so I could watch "The AMericans" which I love. But when you go over to that station, you get some other crap and not the show. The chats online say it doesn't help to contact customer service cause they are dense.
And the constant buffering on some channels is a pain. Signing up took a long time with numerous tries. I use my Amazon Fire stick and do not have a playstation.

If anyone else has tried this, I would be eager to hear your thoughts. Canceling cable made me happy. But this needs work before I will be happy with it.

No but I'd be interested in any other opinions on this too.

Well I love it now. I traded in my Amazon Fire stick for Amazon Fire TV. It was more money but worth it. All the shows that kept on stopping are now continuous. I guess the Fire stick does not have enough power and the Fire TV is just a little box that comes with the same remote and plugs in the very same way.

This beats Sling by a long shot, which I am going to cancel as soon as I get off here.
