This live TV streaming service lets you pick and choose the channels you want


Live TV streaming services are becoming a popular way to lower your TV bill, but what many consumers have told us is that they want to be able to individually pick and choose the channels they pay for.

DirecTV Now, YouTube TV, Sling TV and others still offer bundles of channels — similar to traditional cable or satellite TV.

Spectrum debuts new live TV streaming service 

Now, the cable and internet provider Spectrum (owned by Charter Communications) is rolling out a service called Spectrum TV Choice that lets customers create their own live TV streaming bundle.

Here’s what you get: 

  • Choose 10 live TV channels from 65 networks
  • Local broadcast channels included
  • No contracts or equipment fees

Some of the 65 channels that you can create your custom channel lineup from include A&E, CNN, Disney, TLC, HGTV, History, TNT, Nickelodeon and ESPN.

The service costs $21.99 per month for two years, according to Spectrum’s website.

There are some drawbacks. The Los Angeles Times reports that you have to be a Spectrum internet customer to get the deal and the service is only available on your home internet network — so you can’t stream while on the go.

This offer isn’t available everywhere, either. You can check availability on Spectrum’s website.

If you’re paying $100 per month for traditional cable or satellite TV, streaming options are worth a closer look. There are a handful of additional choices starting at about $40 per month.
