Streaming TV Matrix

Streaming TV Matrix - preview

Find the Perfect Cable TV Alternative

Using the Streaming TV Services Matrix below you can easily figure out which streaming service is right for you. If you know what channels your favorite shows are on, then you know what channels you need to prioritize.

Like with most things, one size does not fit all. You  need to balance out cost and channel selection to find the cable TV alternative right for you.

Note: I did not include any packages of $50 or more. I made this decision because I don’t feel that packages at this price point are meant for cord cutters, nor do I believe they will help you save money. If you are looking for advice on robust TV packages, then you have come to the wrong place.

How to Use the Stream TV Matrix

DVR OPTIONS

  • Sling TV offers a Cloud DVR on Fire TV (soon across all devices)
  • DirectTV Now does not offer DVR functionality
