The best live TV streaming services

Cutting the cable cord continues to be a hot topic of conversation, with some TV viewers thinking that getting rid of their cable subscription means letting go of live TV altogether. That may have been true a decade ago, but within the past five years, streaming services have responded to consumers' need for live content in addition to on-demand programming. And it seems to be working well for those platforms. To get more news about 39bet-ba càng-tiến lên miền bắc-máy đua ngựa-đua ngựa-đua chó, you can visit official website.

A March 2022 study shows that live streaming services, also known as virtual multichannel video programming distributors, are on the rise, picking up 7.6 percent more subscribers than the year before. Meanwhile, approximately 25.5 million U.S. households dropped their cable provider between 2016 and 2021, and it's predicted that by the end of 2023, less than half of U.S. households will have a traditional cable subscription.
Why are so many people making the switch? Well, streaming services with live TV components aren't typically as pricey as standard cable providers and most of these multichannel video companies don't force you to sign a long-term contract, giving you the freedom to cancel whenever you want. Also, the ability to consolidate your live and on-demand entertainment onto one platform is pretty appealing. To help you navigate these potentially new waters, we've created a guide to the best live TV streaming services.
YouTube TV's wide variety of offerings probably mimics traditional cable packages the most out of any streaming service on this list. The Base plan (starting at $54.99 per month) comes with more than 85 news, entertainment, sports, and local channels (to see the full lineup for your area, enter your zip code on the homepage).

Sports aficionados have access to four ESPN channels, the MLB Network, the NFL Network, NBA TV, the Golf Channel, and more. There's also a Sports Plus ($10.99 per month) add-on that unlocks another dozen channels, including beIN Sports' international coverage.
FuboTV has the most comprehensive sports coverage out of its live TV streaming competitors. The base plan ($69.99 per month), which is confusingly called the Pro plan, offers a slew of channels, including ESPN, CBS Sports, FS1, FS2, beIN Sports, the Golf Channel, and the Big 10 Network. But the five sports add-on packages are where customers can really personalize their experience to fit their interests:

DirecTV Stream prioritizes local channels in its lineups. Before signing up, you can see exactly what channels are available in your zip code for each of the four plans: Entertainment ($69.99 per month), Choice ($89.99 per month), Ultimate ($104.99 per month), and Premier ($149.99 per month). The latter three also include regional sports networks (the amount is determined by your zip code). For instance, a Chicago zip code comes with nine local channels and two regional sports networks covering all of the Windy City's major teams.

If you're looking for a cheap live TV plan, we recommend Philo. For $25 per month, subscribers get more than 60 channels. Unlike its competitors, Philo does not stream major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, Fox, and NBC) or popular cable channels like CNN and ESPN, but you will find lifestyle and entertainment channels, including HGTV, Hallmark, Discovery, and the Food Network.

Though Sling TV falls short in some areas (like simultaneous streams and DVR space), we really like how the service's three plans and add-ons are sorted. On one hand, you have Sling TV Orange ($35 per month), which is targeted at families and college sports fans (channels include Disney, Freeform, and ESPN). On the other hand, you have Sling TV Blue ($35 per month), which may appeal more to news watchers and professional sports followers thanks to channels such as CNN, BBC America, Fox Sports 1, and the NFL Network. The third plan combines the Orange and Blue lineups into one package ($50 per month), which comes out to nearly 50 channels.

Vidgo is a no-frills service that has most of the broadcast and cable channels you'd expect, though it is missing a few key networks (namely NBC, CBS, and CNN). Still, the platform's basic plan, which is referred to as the Plus plan, is arguably the best low-level package we've seen. For the amount of channels you get, the price ($59.95 per month) is a steal and the advanced playback feature lets you watch live shows or events you missed up to 24 hours after they've aired.
