In the past year, many major streaming services have slowly but surely been hiking up their monthly prices. YouTube TV went from $65 to $73, Fubo from $70 to $75, and Hulu with Live TV from $70 to $77. Some packages with premium tiers even run to more than $100 per month. It's a trend that doesn't seem to be stopping anytime soon, but that doesn't mean that there aren't more affordable choices out there.
If you're on a budget, we're happy to let you know that there are still a number of streaming services you can get for $50 or less. Your best bets are Sling Orange, Sling Blue, and Philo, all of which provide a decent amount of news, sports, and entertainment channels and cloud DVR to boot. For an even lower price, you could get Frndly TV, Peacock Premium, and Paramount+, the latter two of which give you access to NBC and CBS simulcasts, respectively. Other services are able to mark down their prices because they stream specialized content. YipTV for instance caters to Latin American viewers while SportsLive is for those who looking to stay on top of live sporting events. You can read about them and learn more in our comprehensive list below.
