Did you know that you can get access to the majority of TV channels that you’re paying for on cable through a live TV streaming service in 2024?

If you’re tired of paying premium cable prices for hundreds of channels that you don’t watch, cutting the cord could be a cost-saving option for you.

You may be able to lower your monthly bill to around $50-$80 by switching to a live TV streaming service. And you can do it without sacrificing the channels you love the most!

In this article, I’ll provide you with a tool to assess which services have the channels that matter most to you. I’ll also compare the channel menus of each of the live TV streaming services. All of this is to help you make sure you’re getting all the channels you’d like to watch at the cheapest possible price.

This article was updated in January 2024 and I review it every three months. Detailed notes on all updates can be found here.



Live TV Streaming Channel Tool

Team Clark has developed a tool to help you quickly find out which streaming service has the most of your favorite channels.

All you have to do is type in the name of the channels that you want to be included in your live TV streaming subscription. Enter as many as you’d like!

The end result will show you the streaming services that have the most channel matches, and it will sort them from cheapest to most expensive.

Note: Regional sports networks and select local channels are not included in the results. To find out if you have access to these channels, input your ZIP code on the specific streaming service’s website.
