Which Cordcutting Service is Better, Comes Down to What you Value the Most!

When Sling TV first launched in 2015, they were the only kids on the block that allowed you to live stream dozens of television channels without a cable subscription. It was great because there were no contracts, no commitments, and at $20 a month it was dirt cheap compared to the cable alternative.

Today we’ll find out as we take a look at what both services have to offer. Let’s get started! Continue reading Sling TV vs Amazon Instant Video
