Are you ready to Cut Cable but scared you’ll miss out on live sports and other favorite channels??  Don’t be fooled into thinking you have to stick with Cable to get live TV.  In reality you’ll have MORE channels if you cut the cable and switch to streaming!  Not to mention you’ll save a ton of money!!

No matter what you want to stream, there are tons of options with the 5 providers below.  Each is a flat rate monthly, with no taxes, hidden fees or contracts.  Plus they all offer free trials!

Tip: If you already streaming content, remember there is no contract so you can always switch providers for more channels or a lower price!!

Do keep in mind that whatever service you pick, you’re going to need an internet connection of at least 3 Mbps for 720p or 5-6 Mbps for HD 1080 p.

Streaming Devices

With any of these options, you’ll need a device to watch content on. Going super basic you could stream from your smart phone or laptop. If you want to watch it on your TV, here are some options:

Roku
Fire Stick (works with Alexa)
Amazon Fire TV Cube
Smart TV

They are each a little different, our personal favorite after trying almost all of them is definitely the Roku.

Tip: Before you buy a device, look at the services below.  A few of them offer a FREE streaming device when you pay for 3 months of their service!!

Streaming Providers

Many streaming providers seem to be the same when you just look at price, the real comparisons are when you look at channel line ups, number of screens allowed and other features.  Here’s a comparison of the top streaming providers:

Note: ALL of these providers are paid monthly.  There are no sign up fees, or cancelation fees, or extra taxes.  We only pay for service during college football season and then cancel after the bowl games until the next August.
