If you haven’t already, it’s time to ditch Cable contracts and enter the new era of Live TV channels and streaming movies and shows.
Here are some of the major live TV streaming services currently available.
- AT&T Watch TV ($15 a month or free with certain AT&T wireless plans)
- Philo ($16 a month)
- Sling TV ($25 a month)
- SkyStream TV ($35 a month)
- Hulu With Live TV ($45 a month)
- PlayStation Vue ($45 a month)
- Fubo TV ($54 a month)
- DirecTV Now ($50 a month)
- YouTube TV ($50 a month)
Don’t care about live TV? Here’s more cord-cutting options
Netflix: One of the first streaming TV services and one of the best. Plans start at $13 a month, and it covers thousands of TV shows and movies, including originals like The Umbrella Academy and Orange is the New Black.
Amazon Prime Video: The “other” major streaming service, which is included as part of a $99 annual Prime Membership or $9 a month. The interface isn’t as user-friendly as Netflix, but the service often offers shows not on Netflix, including originals like The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. Amazon Prime also has the ability to add channels (HBO, Starz and more), making it a potential one-stop shop.
There are also free, ad-supported services such as Pluto TV, Roku Channel, IMDB Freedive, TuBi TV, and Sony Crackle, which offer a wealth of content. I won’t mention the “K” word in this article but that is also another great source of content.
