Alternatives to YouTube TV

1. fuboTV ($55)

fuboTV recently announced that they will be adding Disney-owned networks including ABC, ESPN, Disney Channel, FX, Nat Geo, and more this summer. With the additions, they will include all of the Top 35 Cable Channels, more than any other Live TV Streaming Service.

After they add Disney-owned channels, fuboTV will offer every channel that YouTube TV offers and you’ll gain A&E, Hallmark, History e Lifetime.

In terms of sports, they are one of the only alternatives that carry NFL Network, NFL RedZone, NBA TV, MLB Network, and NHL Network as part of their service (some require their $5 Extra or $11 Sports Plus add-on). They also are the only service that offers a similar multi-screen (PIP) feature that many streamers love for sports.

For those in New York, Boston, and Houston, they are one of the only streaming services that offer MSG/MSG+, AT&T SportsNet Southwest, and NESN. Due to a contract dispute, they are currently without Sinclair-owned Fox Sports RSNs.

They offer a $5 upgrade to their Family Plan, which includes 500 Hour DVR and Third Simultaneous Stream. They could have their own price hike coming, but we wouldn’t expect it to be more than $5-10.

Cloud DVR

The service includes a 30 Hour DVR, which can be upgraded to 500 Hours, plus a third stream for $5.

Max Streams

The service includes 2 Simultaneous Streams, but you can add a Third Stream, along with a 500 Hour DVR for $5.

2. Hulu + Live TV ($55)

For the $10 less than YouTube TV, you’ll get 26 channels of the 35 Top Cable Channels, including your local RSN. The service carries a similar number of ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX affiliates than YouTube TV, so you’re likely to get them in your area.

In comparison to YouTube TV, you’ll lose AMC, BET, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, Paramount Network, VH1 e WE tv, but you’ll gain A&E, History e Lifetime.

They are the only service that carries all Fox Sports RSNs including YES Network, Fox Sports West, and Fox Sports Prime Ticket across markets — which YouTube TV no longer carries.

One unique feature with Sling is that you can add additional channels through Extra packs like Kids, Comedy, News, and Lifestyle. For $5 each, or $10 for all four — you can add channels like MTV, VH1, E!, Disney Junior, and MSNBC.

In order to get MLB Network and NBA TV (which YouTube TV offers), you’ll need to add the Sports Extra pack ($10), which also includes NHL Network.
