Can I get a free device like an Apple TV, Roku, or Chromecast for signing up?

Some providers offer new users a free device when you sign-up for a streaming service.

Unfortunately, there are currently no free device promotions.

What device do you suggest we use for a streaming service?

We suggest that you spend a little bit more to get a higher-quality streaming device like an Apple TV, Fire TV, or Roku Premiere+.

While these can be $20 to $30 more than a basic streaming stick, they will generally provide a more stable streaming experience.

Do I need a cable box?

One of the great benefits of a live TV streaming service is that you can use a streaming device instead of an expensive cable box.
