I am now using Youtube TV ( also have Netflix). Into 3rd month (1st was free and I got a free Chromecast) and I am liking it. It doesn't have a huge library of catalogue shows but pretty much allows you to watch and record all episodes of any broadcast TV shows (and no limit)
A couple of side benefits I found was 1) able to watch the America's Cup live streamed off NBC and then NBCsn and 2) the AB/Lion games streamed off ESPN2 (local Sky commentary too).
I will be dtiching Vodafone cable TV (I only had basic service and would only miss FoodTV and Disovery Turbo) so the monthly cost difference is minimal. Plus I have ditched Vodafone cable internet (100/10) and moved to Bigpipe 200/200 UFB which is cheaper.
Would you need to use a VPN for that? Seems like its only available in the US for now.
I just use Getflix's smartDNS and that works. It didn't originally and I had to turn on OpenVPN in my router but that broke some other apps my wife was running. Then Getflix fixed it. You also do need to fake your location on your phone since Google checks that to provide with "local" programming. This is easy enough on Android, perhaps not so easy on IOS since I have been told it requires the phone to be jailbroken.
You can also do it via a browser (ideally Chrome) and fake location there and then cast to your TV but I haven't got that to work and I haven't tried that hard either.
