35 Best Live TV Streaming Services Right Now

Today there are so many ways to cut the cord while keeping access to Live TV, perhaps too many. They all are at different prices: from $5.99 to $64.99, offer different channels, and different features: some have unlimited DVR, some none at all, some will be available on your Roku or Fire Stick, some not. 

So how can you pick? Here we have ranked the best Live TV streaming services based on their value: how many channels each dollar you pay gets you? 

Level News is a slim ten-channel cord-cutting offer for, you guessed it, the news. It's a good add-on if you have another cord-cutting subscription that doesn't include news such as Frndly TV. That said, you will have to contend for less familiar channels as big-name broadcasters like CNN, the BBC, and MSNBC are still not available. Plus, some of the channels that are available, like France24, are streamable for free online. The service only launched in November 2022, and there are echos that it's looking to add more news channels soon.

One important thing to know: ESPN+ will not allow you to watch ESPN channels live. However, it has a lot of on-demand content that has aired on the channels and is a good way to watch some sports live. Namely: UFC events, many soccer leagues (such as LaLiga and Bundesliga), Golf, Tennis, and MLB. For the price, ESPN+ is worth at least a try if you are a fan of any of these sports.
