What Is the Best TV Streaming Service of 2020?
Are you gearing up to cut your cable?
Maybe you’re hesitating, given the number of hours you’re stuck at home and around the TV these days. You’ve grown comfortable with your cable.
Plus, figuring out the best TV streaming service can feel a little overwhelming.
But think of all the money you’ll save by cutting the cord and moving over to streaming instead. So we’ll take a look at the best services available in 2020 to make it easier for you.
1. Sling TV
Sling is where it all began. And back in the early days, they were offering streaming for around $20 per month. Back in those days though, you couldn’t get any local channels.
As things went digital, that meant you had to also buy an antenna to pick up local coverage. There was no amount of TV aerial repairs that were going to fix that.
Today, this service starts at around $30. You can add channel packs too for a more customized experience. Depending on where you live, it may offer some of your local stations. It has only 10 hours of DVR storage though.
More than that is an additional $5 per month.
2. YouTube TV
YouTube TV’s basic service comes with more than 85 channels, giving it the distinction as one of the largest collections among the base packages.
It also has amazing cloud DVR features including unlimited storage, the ability to record three concurrent streams, and keeping your recordings for nine months.
At $65 per month, it’s a little costlier than some of the other services. But it still beats cable.
3. Hulu + Live TV
If you want something less cost-prohibitive than YouTube TV, head on over to Hulu + Live TV. Its $55/month integration of live TV with an expansive cat alog on on-demand content makes it a more affordable option.
Although with that $10 savings, you can’t expect the user interface and DVR to be as good as with YouTube. Plus, in order to be commercial-free on their content, you have to shell out another $10 per month. So it all balances out in the end.
4. Fubo TV
If watching sports is your focus, then Fubo TV might be the choice for you. Whether you’re a soccer fan, or a football junkie looking for the NFL Network and optional RedZone, Fubo’s got it all.
Fubo TV added ESPN and Disney channels in the late summer of 2020. However, it also dropped the Turner network channels including CNN, TNT, and TBS. So you’ll need to decide if it’s worth the trade-off.
If you’re tired of paying all the extra money for sports channels you never watch, then consider Philo. For just $20 per month, it’s the biggest bundle you can get with zero sports channels. You can enjoy AMC, Viacom, Discovery, and A&E for way less than cable.
You’ll still need an antenna for your local channels though.

Plus, you’ll save a lot of money every month. So cut that cord!
