A Complete Rundown of the Best TV Streaming Services Currently Available
Gone are the days of just a few streaming services — today, it seems like new platforms pop up constantly! It can be tough to figure out what the best TV streaming services are, and the answer is probably different for different tastes. While the old standbys like Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu still have the largest libraries, they don't cover everything, and in many cases, some of their biggest licensed titles are reverting to their original owners to be placed on new, network-affiliated platforms.
On top of that, there are several options starting to appear that may allow you to cut the cord altogether and leave the days of cable behind. According to a 2020 study in USA Today, the average pay TV customer pays around $110 per month to watch TV. With more streaming services offering packages that even include live TV add-ons, there's a good chance that you could subscribe to a few of your favorite streamers — and even add in one or two smaller niche platforms — and still save money. While it's possible that your internet bill could go up if you rely wholly on streaming, there's still a pretty good chance you could save at least a little bit of money every month.
It's a lot to keep up with and a lot to consider, and that's why we've put together this guide to streaming just for you! We've got a complete rundown of all the major streaming services you should be aware of (plus a few niche ones, too), how much they cost, and what their programming looks like.
