Are you spending too much watching your favorite TV channels, movies, shows, and sports events? If you use the cable to do those things, you probably are. In that case, you should consider cutting your cable and streaming the things that you want to watch for less.
Choosing a video streaming service
Once you have decided to use a video streaming service, you need to select one. Here is some information on several of the most popular providers.
DIRECTV STREAM is arguably the most complete provider, particularly if you are a sports fan although others will get a lot out of it as well. However, it is also generally the priciest considering all of its plans although its cheapest is $69.99/month.
Hulu + Live TV
Hulu + Live TV offers the on-demand library that the Hulu name is known for as well as nearly 100 live TV channels. Also note that paying for a month of this service, which costs $69.99, will get you access to Disney+ and ESPN+ as well.
Another option for sports fans and others is fuboTV. In fact, its initial focus was soccer, but, today, it offers plenty of entertainment for everyone. fuboTV’s plans start at $69.99/month, with the base plan featuring more than 100 channels.
Sling TV is a good option for someone looking to dip their feet into the streaming service water as it is amongst the most affordable providers. For example, you could get either the Sling Orange or Sling Blue plan for $35/month.
There are numerous advantages to using a streaming service over cable, so research the above options and others such as Paramount+, Amazon Prime, and Philo to see which one provides you with the best overall deal, considering offered channels and cost.
