If you’re fed up with cable and ready to make the switch, there are some good options out there. For instance, Sling and Hulu have both been fairly popular with viewers. You basically sign up for their service and then sign in and start streaming.
It doesn’t matter if you don’t have a Smart TV. You can buy a Roku device. This little gadget retails for about $50 and it plugs into the HDMI port on the back of your TV. If you’re still using one of the older model TVs, don’t despair. There is a small converter that is basically an adapter cable. It may only pick up video, not audio so be sure to look into that.
Below are the top 5 best live streaming services:
Sling-Owned by Dish. The website is fairly straightforward. They have 3 plans: Orange, Blue and Orange & Blue. Under each tab, you’ll see the channels included with each plan. Prices start at $15 per month and they usually have specials like 40% off.
Hulu-Prices start at $5.99 per month but if you want those top 40 most popular channels, it will cost $45 per month plus tax. They usually offer first 30 days free.
AT&T Watch TV-This one is $15 but is free with some AT&T mobile plans. Does not offer Cloud DVR and doesn’t offer many channels or decent customer support.
DirectTVNow-This one offers some pretty good channels lineups. For $50 per month, you can get 45 channels plus HBO. At $70 per month, you can get 60 channels, HBO and Cinemax. Not bad!
Playstation Vue-Gaining in popularity, this one starts at $49 per month for the basic channels and goes all the way up to $85 per month for all major channels, plus sports and premium channels.
