Do you like watching TV but want to avoid the high cost of cable or satellite? Would you like to cut the cord to the cable or satellite you already pay for? If you answered affirmatively to either question, then a streaming service might be right for you. Millions of people stream their television programs.
The streaming services we include in this selector range in price from free to $55 per month. Compare that to the monthly cost of cable or satellite: 85% of North American customers pay more than $50. About two thirds of cable and satellite customers pay $75 to $150 (and up).
If you are paying for cable or satellite TV, you've probably noticed that there are hundreds of channels you have no interest in watching. Chances are there are relatively few channels that you actually watch. Before answering the questions below, make a mental list of your favorite channels and the types of television programming that you enjoy most. What is your personal must see TV list?
Additionally, consider combining a streaming service with over-the-air TV. For the one-time cost of an antenna or aerial in most locations you can watch ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC and/or PBS plus local newscasts and other local programs.
