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.

Streaming TV Channel Lineups: Compare the Cheapest Options!

These cable and satellite alternatives offer smaller bundles, so it’s important that you carefully review the channel lineups to make sure that your favorite networks are included.

We have three charts to help you compare the best live TV streaming services:

  1. YouTube TV, Hulu Live, Sling TV and fuboTV 
  2. TVision by T-Mobile
  3. Philo and Frndly TV

The first chart highlights the channel lineups for YouTube TV, Hulu + Live TVSling TV and fuboTV. We’ve featured their base plans that have a mix of sports, news and entertainment networks.

Important: Enter your ZIP code on a streaming provider’s website to verify local stations and check for additional regional sports networks that may not be listed in our charts.

Below that, you’ll find T-Mobile’s four TVision bundles that launched on November 1. They’re priced between $10 and $60 per month.

If you don’t want to pay for cable sports or your local stations, scroll down to our third chart. It lists the channel bundles for Philo and Frndly TV. They’re $20 a month or less.

To learn more about which streaming TV service is best for you, see our guide to cutting the cord.

Don’t know if any of these plans will work for you? Call a family meeting and have everyone write down the channels that are most important to them, then see which bundle is the best fit for your household.


TIP: If you’re viewing this article from a computer, use the search bar to quickly find specific networks that are on your must-have list. For those using a mobile device, scroll from left to right to view the full chart.
