Cutting the cord to cable comes with a few challenges. For instance, you may miss live TV once you switch from cable. However, you don’t have to get up your favorite live programs when you cut the cord.


Here are some of the best streaming services for watching live TV!

Sling TV

Sling TV has been one of the longest-running streaming services to offer live TV. Made by avid sports fans who would miss their favorite team's games when they traveled, Slingbox went into development in 2002 and came to the market by 2005.


Unfortunately, you cannot set up family accounts whatever your household watches shows on the viewing history. You must decide what bundle you go with for Sling TV. One bundle is entertainment and news, while the other is sports and other family-style entertainment.


Sling TV is the most affordable streaming service that offers live TV at $35 a month.


Much like Sling TV, fuboTV has bundles for you to choose from. However, fuboTV is a bit more expensive, ranging from $65 to $80 a month.


The main difference between fuboTV and Sling TV includes a variety of stations, including NFL Network, ESPN, ABC, CBS, and NBC, to name a few.


When it comes to sports access, fuboTV is the far superior choice. Additionally, fuboTV is an excellent streaming service for Spanish-speaking families.

YouTube TV

When you install a streaming device for your TV, you will get access to the internet for streaming services. One of the first services you download the app to will most likely be YouTube since you have a free account with them already. However, you can also upgrade your YouTube account and get access to live TV!


YouTube TV has quite a high price at $65 a month. However, you get what you pay for in some cases! With YouTube TV, you and other members of your family will be able to stream live TV and three separate streams at once.


Additionally, YouTube TV gives you an unlimited amount of cloud storage space to record any movies or TV shows you might miss live!

Hulu + Live TV

Hulu + Live TV is the best option you can choose for its price. Coming in at $65, Hulu + Live TV isn’t cheap, but it makes up for its content.


Hulu has hundreds of original shows and movies for you to stream when you’re not watching TV live. Plus, the Hulu + Live TV version comes with ad-free streaming!
