Vidgo is a live TV streaming service that includes live entertainment, lifestyle, news, and sports channels for only $69.99/month.
The service has locals from ABC and FOX in select markets, as well as entertainment channels from A&E Networks, Disney, Discovery, Viacom, and sports channels like beIN Sports, ESPN, ESPNU, NFL Network, NFL RedZone, and Pac-12 Network
The service includes top cable channels like A&E, BET, Comedy Central, Discovery, Food Network, HGTV, and Nickelodeon. You can see Vidgo’s full channel lineup below.
It is most notably missing channels like Bravo, E!, TBS, TNT, and USA Network, and major sports networks like MLB Network, NBA TV, and USA Network.
The biggest knock on the service is that it only has a 20 Hour DVR. If you are looking to subscribe to a more full featured service today, we suggest checking out Hulu Live TV for a full streaming service or Philo for a similarly priced entertainment-only option with an Unlimited DVR.
