What Is The Best Option for TV Without Cable

The Best Option For Watching TV Without Cable

We think one of the best options for TV without cable is to use one of the live TV streaming services. The services include AT&T TV Now, Fubo TV, Hulu + Live TV, Philo, Sling, TVision Live TV, Vidgo and YouTube TV.

As we head into the new year, many of you are looking for ways to reduce your monthly bills. This may involve finding cheaper ways to watch your favorite channels, without cable.

What Is The Best Alternative To Cable

To help you find the best alternatives to cable, we created a chart below. In the chart, you will find over 100 of the most popular cable channels in the USA organized in alphabetical order.

If the live TV streaming service carries the channel, you will see the word yes. If it doesn’t, you will see the word no.

If you see the words, add-on, the service carries the channel but you have to pay extra.

To make things easier, utilize the search box in the top right of the table. For instance, if your favorite channel is Fox News, type it within the box and hit enter. The table will now show the services carrying the channel.

If you don’t want to see all 115 rows, you can adjust the number you see on your computer by clicking the box on the left of the table.

Use this table to identify must have channels when moving from cable to streaming. Identify your must have channels and, at a glance, see which live TV streaming service carries them. By staying laser focused on your core channels, this will help reduce your monthly bill.

Once you have selected your streaming service, see if there is enough left in your budget to add extras. They usually include premium channels, additional streams and DVR.

We try to keep this table updated. However, we can use help. If you see a channel added or deleted from the streaming services within the table and we didn’t catch it, let us know in the comments below.
