Being that we've been cable cutters and on AT&T for the last 6 years I think me and my wife are going to give this a shot. $35 doesn't sound to bad if it actually has good stations.

Through Costco you can get Directv100+ channels on 4 TV's with DVR for $50.00 / month for 2 years with a $300.00 credit. That is $37.00/month and you don't have to worry about data caps on your ISP. No equipment or install charges.

If the DVR will be at no additional cost and you are able to take advantage of the grandfathering into the $35 special rate for the $60 plan, this is a great service. I don't sign up automatically because I want to see how the Sling DVR will turn out. I have the grandfathered multistream plan for $20 and am not going to take any chances. I've considered Vue because it looks like a much better service and has DVR, but not at their prices.
