Can Frequent Travelers Use Live TV Streaming Services?

You may want to pause your live TV service before going on vacation. Platforms like YouTube TV impose strange rules that can affect frequent travelers, especially those who spend months away from home. These rules are often benign, but they can also ruin the streaming experience.To get more news about 39bet-casino trực tuyến-sicbo-máy đánh bạc- cờ bạc onl- cờ bạc trực tuyến, you can visit official website.
Unfortunately, every live TV service has its own set of rules. To make things easy, we’ll briefly explain how these services deal with travelers. We’ll also explain which services have the fewest restrictions.For the most part, short vacations shouldn’t interrupt your live TV service. All live TV services let you stream when away from home. But for better or worse, there are a few caveats that might make your trip a bit harder.

Local channels offered by your live TV service will change depending on your location. But certain content, particularly NFL games, may not be available while you’re on vacation. And unfortunately, most live TV services won’t let you record local shows to DVR outside of your home. (That said, you can still access DVR recordings.)

The biggest drawback, at least for short trips, is that you may need to stream on a mobile device or laptop. Hulu with Live TV and DirecTV Stream don’t let you use “living room devices” when away from home.Both YouTube TV and Hulu with Live TV will pester you for taking a long vacation. They have aggressive rules that directly affect frequent travelers and families with two homes.

As explained by Google support, YouTube TV needs you to regularly update your “current playback area” while traveling. Otherwise, you can’t watch local channels. The service will completely remove your ability to watch local channels if you don’t log in from your “home area” once every three months—you can update your “home area,” but only twice per year.

Hulu with Live TV is even more aggressive. If you don’t access the service from your home network for 30 days, it simply stops working. You can change your home network four times a year, though. (And again, Hulu with Live TV only lets you stream on mobile devices outside your home.)

There are only two “easy” ways to get around these rules. You can leave a family member at home while you’re on vacation, or you can switch your “home area” to a friend’s house and let them use your live TV service.
