General | Latest Info

Sling TV costs more than Philo but has better channels, more options and a comparatively better interface, so it's worth the extra money in our opinion. And it's STILL dirt-cheap compared to other streaming services, let alone Cable. Sling is cheaper than Premium services like YouTube TV and HULU Plus Live TV because it has very few local stations. Confusingly, it also has two 30-per-month Channel packages, Sling Orange and Sling Blue. While some channels are available on both Sling Orange and Sling Blue, two differ significantly from other channel offerings: Orange is basically the ESPN / Disney package, while Blue is the Fox / NBC package. Top channels not available on Sling Blue: ABC, CBS, Animal Planet, Disney Channel, ESPN, Nickelodeon. Fox and NBC are only available in select major cities. Top channels not available on Sling Orange: ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, Animal Planet, Bravo, CNBC, Discovery Channel, Bravo, Fox News, Fox Sports 1, FX, MSNBC, USA Network. Read our Sling TV review. With the addition of eight new channels and the addition of NFL Network and optional RedZone in time for the 2020 football season, YouTube TV has more top channels than any competitor-And it's STILL the only one with local PBS stations. YouTube TV has the best cloud DVR of bunch, including unlimited storage and a generous nine months to watch recordings. The streaming platform interface is no-nonsense, if a little drab, and yet it offers most of the features a cable service can give you. And unlike Sling and others, it's dead simple: One package, One price, do. Despite its best-in-class channel selection and cloud DVR, it's now equal with HULU as the most expensive Live TV streaming service. If you want to save money over traditional Cable subscription then Sling TV is superior bargain. Top Channels not available: & E, History, Lifetime. Read our YouTube TV review. With that December price hike, HULU Plus Live TV falls from being our top Premium pick to second banana to YouTube TV. Its Channel selection is STILL robust compared to everything but YouTube TV, however, and HULU's integration of Live TV with its significant catalog of On-demand content, including exclusive titles like Handmaid's Tale, gives it a content advantage no other service can match. Its interface and DVR lag behind competitors, however, and you'll STILL have to pay another 10 months to get the ability to skip commercials on HULU's cloud DVR. In short, for the same base price, YouTube TV is now better than HULU. Top Channels not available: AMC, BBC America, Comedy Central, MLB Network, MTV, NBA TV, NFL Network, NFL Red Zone, Nickelodeon. Read our HULU Plus Live TV review. There's LOT to like about FuboTV-It offers a wide selection of channels second only to YouTube TV, and its sports focus makes it especially attractive to soccer fans in particular. It's also a great choice for NFL fans since it's only service aside from YouTube TV with NFL Network and optional RedZone.

16 Cost-Effective Cable Alternatives

Cable TV gets expensive very quickly. Prices typically vary by region, cable company, and how many cable channels you want. Sadly, cable providers do let you pick and choose channels you actually want to watch. Instead, you have to purchase Channel packages that include channels you never want. Cable providers are great at adding extra fees to your bill, too. If you want high definition image and DVR, expect to add at least 20 per month to your bill. If you want Premium TV channels like HBO, Showtime or Cinemax, youa€™ll likely add around 10 to 16 per channel package per month. When all is said and Do, it is not uncommon to pay 100 or sometimes even 200 for your cable TV subscription. This is especially true if you add packages such as NFL Sunday Ticket and multiple movie channels to your Subscription. These fees dona€™t even include internet access youa€™re probably paying for, too. So, leta€™s say your monthly cable bill is 150 per month. If you cut cord and decide to pick up few free cable alternatives and 25 pay cable alternatives per month, you could save 125 per month. If you invest that 125 per month for 30 years and earn 8 % annual return, youa€™ll end up with roughly 183 000. Rather than continue paying over 100 for cable TV, you can take advantage of the internet subscription you already pay for to entertain yourself. If youare looking for free cable alternatives, here are a few options you may want to consider.

YouTube TV

Table

ProsCons
Great overall channel lineupMonthly price increased from $ 50 to $65 in June 2020

YouTube TV offers solid coverage, but there are some holes in its entertainment lineup. It lacks channels like & E, Lifetime, and Hallmark. Is life without First 48, married AT First Sight, or wall-To-wall Christmas movies even worth living? They were asking for friend. YouTube TV's recent price hike from 49. 99 To 64. 99 months irked customers as well, even though they also gained over a dozen new channels. Meanwhile, upsides to YouTube TV include unlimitedyes, unlimitedcloud DVR storage that keeps recorded shows for up to nine months. YouTube TV search function is also among the best in livestreaming TV, thanks to its Google integration.

AT&T TV Now

Table

ProsCons
HBO Max Cinemax included in Max planOnly 45+ channels offered for $55/month
500 hours of cloud DVRMust upgrade to $80/month plan for some regional sports networks

AT & T TV Now, previously DirecTV Now, offers good streaming performance and lots of channels, but some of its plans are unnecessarily fragment, and they cost a lot for what you get. AT & T TV Now's Plus plan starts AT costly 55 per month and includes 45 Channels, but the top-end Ultimate plan, which includes 125 Channels, is even more ridiculous 135 per month. No other video streaming service we tested offers plans this expensive. Many add-ons are available for service, including HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, and Starz, though the first two are included with 80-per-month Max plan. AT & T TV Now also caters to international audiences with Brazilian, Korean, and Vietnamese Channel packages, in addition to its Espanol and deport add-ons. AT & T TV now offers 20 hours of DVR storage for free and keeps those recordings for up to 30 days, but most other services let users save more hours of programming and for longer. The Service supports simultaneous streaming on up to two devices, which is about average, though you can pay an additional 4. 99 per month to increase that limit to three devices. AT & T TV Now is available on a decent range of platforms including media streaming devices, mobile platforms, and the web, but is not available on either Xbox One or PlayStation 4 consoles. Although AT & T TV Now's apps on web and mobile don't look as sophisticated as competitors', they performed fine in testing for the most part and were able to stream content reliably. We particularly like AT & T TV Now's Lookback and Rewind feature, which respectively let you watch previously aired content and start over live streams from the beginning of the broadcast. Note, however, that these capabilities are only available for Select Channels and programs. Only a few other services offer similar features.

Philo

Table

ProsCons
Lots of entertainment networks for a very low priceNo local or sports channels

Philo is a live TV streaming service borne from desperate times. Its main network backersDiscovery, Viacom, and AMChave to varying degrees, find themselves cast out of other streaming bundles, in large part because they do carry any sports programming. Rather than sit idly by, theyve band together to launch their OWN bundle, with no sports but a low price tag. AT 20 per month, Philo is one of the cheapest bundles of cable channels you can get over the Internet today. If youre into reality TV fare that many Philos Channels focus on, it could be the only streaming service you need, but it also pairs nicely with other streaming services or with over-air broadcasts from antenna.

Final Thought

Another cheap live TV streaming app is WatchTV. It's operated by AT & T. AT & T also owns DirecTV, so WatchTV can be thought of as a budget version of its bigger brother. AT just 15 / month, it's hard to argue with WatchTV's price. Some AT & T customers may even receive service for free, depending on the plan they have. WatchTV only has 37 channels. It's smallest offering out of all Live TV apps in this list by some distance. There are no local channels, no sports channels, and no DVR feature. Curiously, WatchTV does offer AMC, HGTV, and BBC America, all of which are missing from DirecTV's lineup. And if you want on-demand Video, WatchTV has you covered with more than 15 000 TV series and movies.

Sling TV channels and pricing

Sling TV finally added NFL RedZone back to its service! Get Sports Extra for 15 / mo. To enjoy the best Channel in the world. Slings Sports channels are a little slim, so it not the best option for sports fans. We would recommend fuboTV or YouTube TV if youre looking for a live TV streaming service with lots of sports channels. If youre sell on low price or only want a few sports channels, stick with Sling.
