Online apps and credit cards may dominate payment methods these days, but that doesn't make cash completely obsolete. In fact, given that a lot of people still have limited access to banks and high credit scores, cash remains the most inclusive option out there. So if you're wondering if you can still physically pay for your streaming service subscriptions, the answer is yes, you can. Not directly in some instances, but it is a viable option.
Sling TV tops the list here thanks to its "cash pay" feature. You can visit any participating store, directly top-up your Sling account with cash, and you're good to go. Other services, like Netflix, Hulu, and Paramount+, require a bit of sidestep; you can't directly send them cash, but you can purchase gift cards in most retail stores like Walmart and Target and use those cards to pay for a subscription.
Even others, like Amazon Prime, AppleTV+, and YouTubeTV, offer gift cards that encompass the brands' many other services, making them quite handy outside of streaming (in YouTubeTV's case, what you're looking for is a Google Play gift card). Below, we list all the streaming services you can pay for with cash along with other details, like price and channel lineup, you might want to know.
