Many people still don’t realize all you need to watch your favorite shows and channels is an internet connection. Many streaming services offer the same national and local channels the cable company makes you pay an arm and a leg for.
Hulu Live TV is compatible with many devices, and continues to add to that list. For $54.99 a month, you can stream your favorite local and national channels. Though you will need to check which channels are available in your area on their website. You can watch on two screens at the same time, and have unlimited access to the Hulu streaming library.
For $49.99 a month, YouTubeTV gives you access to several live channels, including local stations, as well as YouTube original series. You get six different accounts for your home, so everyone in the family can keep tabs on the shows they love. YouTubeTV also includes unlimited cloud-based DVR, so you don’t have to choose between your favorite shows.
AT&T TV Now starts at $65 a month, with more expensive packages for customers who want more than the basic channels. Local channels are available depending on your location. DirecTV Now allows you to purchase premium channels like HBO®, CINEMAX®, SHOWTIME® and STARZ® for as low as $5 a month in addition to your chosen streaming package.
Roku streaming players connect your TV to the streaming service of your choice. So even if you don’t own a smart TV, you can still save money by streaming your favorite shows. All you need is an internet connection to be on your way to cutting cable.
