|

THE LATEST: 

  • YouTube TV is dropping Fox Regional Sports Networks from its channel lineup as of October 1, 2020. 


  • fuboTV added Disney-owned networks on August 1: ABC, Disney Channel, ESPN, SEC Network, ACC Network, FX and more. 

  • Before you sign up for a streaming service, enter your ZIP code on a streaming TV provider’s website to verify the latest list of channels, including local stations.

Are you tired of overpaying for more than 100 TV channels with your cable or satellite provider when you only watch a handful of them on a regular basis?

You may be able to lower your monthly bill to around $50 to $65 by switching to a live TV streaming service.
