35 Best Cord-cutting Add-ons Out There

With so many streaming platforms out there, it's easy to feel like you're missing out. But instead of individually purchasing and switching between countless subscriptions, there is a case to be made that add-ons and bundles are the most cost-effective way to cover ground and stay on top of the latest movies and TV shows.

The Disney+ bundle (which includes Hulu and ESPN+) has something for each family member, while Sling TV packages can be customized for anybody and everybody. It has news, entertainment, and sports channel bundles—name it, Sling probably has it. And if you're looking for something more specific to your viewing needs, plenty of streamers are available as add-ons to existing platforms like Amazon Prime and Hulu. These extras, as they're sometimes called, include Starz, Showtime, Paramount+, and AMC+. 

Below, we list the best cord-cutting add-ons currently available in the market.

Our recommended five best cord-cutting add-ons out there:
Starz $2.99 Watch
Sling TV + Hollywood Extra $46 Watch
Sling TV + News Extra Bundle $46 Watch
Sling TV + Lifestyle Extra Bundle $46 Watch
Disney+ Bundle Trio (Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+) $14.99 Watch

Unlike other streaming services, Sling doesn't have just one but six Spanish-language plans that you can choose from. The base Sling Latino plan just costs $10/month and includes more than 20 channels, including BeinSports so you can tune into soccer games live. When you combine that with another regional Latino plan, like Sling Mexico (11 channels), Sling Sudamérica (11 channels), Sling Caribe (9 channels), Sling España (4 channels), or Sling Centroamérica (3 channels), you only have to pay $5 more on top of your existing plan. On their own, however, they also cost $10/month each. Following the same logic, combining any of these Latino plans with either Sling Orange (which has the Disney networks) or Blue (which has more news and sports channels) will cost you $45/month. 

That's one thing about Sling: the options may get overwhelming, but at least you know you can customize your plan to your specific liking. Needless to say, every single one of these plans comes with the usual Sling TV features like 50 hours of cloud DVR (which you can upgrade for a fee) and three simultaneous streams.

If you're an Xfinity internet customer, you're eligible to sign up for the Now TV and Peacock Premium bundle, a hefty live TV and on-demand streaming package that gives you access to films and TV shows from Universal, NBC, Bravo, Hallmark, History, and AMC, as well as 24/7 coverage from live channels like BBC News, NBC News Now, the Food Network, Discovery, and IFC. The beauty of this bundle is that covers the essentials of traditional TV, namely news, entertainment, and sports (Peacock is home to a number of live sporting events), while also giving you all you need on the on-demand front. Even better? It only costs $20/month, Now TV's regular price, since Peacock Premium is added to the bundle completely free—no need to pay an additional $6/month, which is what the service would normally cost outside of this bundle. 

The Now TV and Peacock Premium Bundle also comes with 20 hours of cloud DVR, and you can stream it on three concurrent screens. Apart from a subscription to Xfinity, there are no other strict requirements when claiming this offer.

The Netflix + DirecTV Stream Bundle lets you link your Netflix account to your DirecTV Stream account so you can receive a single bill (from DirecTV) for both subscriptions. For now, the bundle doesn't offer discounts, nor does it integrate Netflix on the DirecTV Stream app. It's also only available to those subscribed to Netflix's premium account. Still, the bundle is handy for those who already have too many bills to worry about, so if you've been wanting to streamline your entertainment apps, then this offer is worth checking out. 

Price: $102.98/month

Device availability: Amazon Fire TV, Android, Android TV, Apple TV, Changhong, Chromecast, Haier, Hisense, iOS, LG TV, Nvidia SHIELD, Panasonic, Philips, PlayStation, Roku, Roku TV, Samsung, Samsung TV, Sharp, Skyworth, Sony, TiVo, Vestel, Vizio, Wii, Xbox

If you're a hardcore baseball fan, you'll be delighted to know that you can tune in to your favorite pastime via MLB.TV, the league's official streaming service. A subscription allows you to watch out-of-market games, as well as Minor League matches, local Pregame and Postgame shows, and expert commentary through MLB Big Inning, on all major streaming services live and on-demand. If you want to follow every team, you can pick their All Teams package for $25/month ($70 yearly) but if you're only interested in a single team, you can pick their Single Team package for $20/month ($60 yearly). It's important to note, however, that only out-of-market games can be watched live. Due to blackout restrictions, you'll have to wait 90 minutes after a local or national game has aired before viewing it. Another important reminder: if you're still on the cord and have the MLB Extra Innings cable TV package, you're likely entitled to a free MLB.TV subscription. Contact your provider to check whether you're eligible.

In our book, Hulu is already up there when it comes to Hispanic-friendly streaming services. It spotlights Latin American-made content and makes those titles easy to find on their platform. But if you want to improve the experience, then you can check out the Español Add-on, which adds Spanish live TV channels to your current lineup so you're updated on Latin American news, entertainment, and sports. At the moment, the add-on costs $5/month and is only available to Hulu with Live TV subscribers. 

Price: $4.99/month

Device availability: Amazon Fire TV, Android, Android TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, iOS, iPhone, LG TV, Nintendo Switch, Roku, Roku TV, Samsung TV, Vizio Smart TV, Xbox

Channel lineup: CNN en Espanol, Discovery en Español, Discovery Familia, ESPN Deportes, Fox Deportes, History Channel en Español, Hogar de HGTV, NBC Universo, The Weather Channel en Espanol

If you're already subscribed to any of Hulu's existing plans (currently, those are with ads, no ads, and live TV), you can choose to boost your subscription with a Starz add-on for an extra $8.99 a month. This rounds up your library of Hulu originals with Starz's own collection of prestige series such as Gaslit, Outlander, and Serpent Queen, as well as their cult-status comedies like Party Down, Minx, and Ash vs. Evil Dead. Additionally, you can stream Starz live and log on to the app, if you have it, with your Hulu credentials. 

While this simplified bundle is certainly interesting, it's even more appealing for TV fans out there who have much to gain from this pairing. 

Price: $16.98/month

Cord-cutters only interested in Spanish-language content will find much to like in Fubo Latino. Instead of the usual lineup, the Latino plan carries more than 65 channels in Spanish, including Unimas, Univision, BeinSports, Nat Geo Mundo, Sony Cine, and Discovery en Español. And since Fubo started as a soccer streaming service, it also has live sporting events featuring leagues like the UEFA Champions League, Bundesliga, and MLS. 

At only $33/month, it's Fubo's most affordable plan yet, but it still has base features like 250 hours worth of cloud DVR and two simultaneous streams. If you already have a Fubo base plan, Fubo also offers these channels as an add-on for $20/month.

The most popular Disney+ bundle is the trio bundle, which combines Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ for the reasonable price of $12.99/month. But if you don't care much for sports, we're here to tell you that you can actually get a leaner (and cheaper!) deal with just Disney+ and Hulu. It's called the Disney+ Bundle Duo and it gives you access to Disney+'s family-friendly hits as well as Hulu's more contemporary original movies and TV shows.

As of this writing, the bundle doesn't allow you to download titles, and you'll have to upgrade to pricier tiers if you want to avoid the ads, but at $9.99/month, it does give you up to 37% in savings compared to purchasing each service separately. Not a bad deal if you're after a good mix of blockbuster and indie fare.

Price: $9.99/month

Device availability: Amazon Fire TV, Android, Apple TV, Hisense, iOS, LG, PlayStation, Roku, Website, Xbox

For $7 more, you can upgrade your Disney+ Trio Bundle, which costs $13 and includes Hulu and ESPN+, for a premium version. The Disney+ no-ads bundle has everything the regular bundle has, but this one allows you to watch Disney+ and Hulu without ads (unfortunately they will still be present in ESPN+) and download movies and TV episodes you can watch offline or on the go. These may be small changes for some, but they can make all the difference for others. Depending on your needs, the premium Disney+ bundle could be a worthy addition to your streaming lineup.

Price: $19.99/month

Device availability: Amazon Fire TV, Android, Apple TV, iOS, PlayStation, Roku, Xbox

With the DirecTV & Paramount+ with Showtime bundle, you get both Paramount+ and Showtime originals (including current fan favorites Yellowjackets and Star Trek) and local CBS channels added to your DirecTV package of choice. You also get access to Showtime's roster of live sporting events, which cover boxing, MMA, and football, to name a few. Once you purchase the bundle, DirecTV automatically adds the bundle to your channel lineup and allows you to use your DirecTV credentials to log in to the Paramount+ with Showtime app. DirecTV likes to vary the discounts, but at the moment, it offers the bundle 50% off for 3 months, which means you only have to pay $6.99/month on top of your base DirecTV package (the most basic goes for $70/month at the moment) until the deal expires. After that, DirecTV automatically charges you the regular price of $11.99/month.

Price: $82/month

Device availability: Amazon Fire TV, Android, Android TV, Apple TV, iOS, Roku, Roku TV, Samsung TV
