Spectrum is a cable TV, internet, telephone and wireless company based in the US. In 2019, Spectrum launched its TV Essentials services to target customers who prefer online viewing. As CEO Tom Routeledge describes it, Spectrum TV Essentials is a “low-priced, entertainment-only bundle unencumbered by the high cost of broadcast retransmission consent fees and expensive sports programming.” Spectrum TV Choice is an evolution of TV Essentials. Note: ESPN is back on Spectrum!

Price: Varies depending on your location and account history.

Spectrum TV's cable plans are some of the most popular out there, and for good reason. Its cheapest plan, Spectrum TV Select Signature, offers more than 150 channels (all in HD) for just $65/month. That price stays constant for a year, then it's subject to change for as much as $25/month. If that still seems like a lot, then you should note that it comes with an ad-supported Disney+ subscription and on-the-go (but not offline) viewing. For $10 more, you could upgrade to the Spectrum TV Select Plus Plan, which has RSNs and a complimentary ESPN+ subscription. Spectrum carries local channels like ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC where available, as well as the usual channels like ESPN, CNN, Disney Channel, HGTV, and AMC. You can also add premium channels like Max and Starz for an additional fee. If you don't mind local channels and live sports, however, you can consider Spectrum's cord-cutting alternative, Spectrum TV Stream, priced at $40/month.

Price: Varies depending on your location and account history.

The Max + B/R Sports add-on combines Max's arsenal of on-demand titles from Warner Bros., HBO, DC, and Cartoon Network with The Bleacher Report's wide coverage of live sporting events, including March Madness, the NBA Playoffs, The Stanley Cup Playoffs, and various MLB matches. You could say it's an extension of TBS, TNT, and truTV sports as it airs select (not all) games from those channels, but it also covers so much more, including other sports like golf, cycling, and MMA. Since October 2023, B/R Sports has been added to all Max plans completely free of charge, but once the promo ends, you'll have to pay $10/month on top of your Max subscription to enjoy B/R content. And of course, blackout restrictions apply.

Generally, Dish Network's TV plans are pretty similar to most cable packages out there, but many things still set them apart. For one, Dish is available in more parts of the country, and for another, it has a great DVR unit in Hopper 3, which can record up to 2,000 hours and 16 shows at the same time. And when it comes to prices, Dish guarantees it won't hike prices up for at least two years, and quite uniquely, it gives you the option to remove local channels from your plan, which will effectively reduce the price by $12/month. Speaking of price, the cheapest Dish plan costs $85/month and carries channels like CNN, Disney Channel, ESPN, and National Geographic. As of this writing, it also comes with Starz, Paramount+ with Showtime, and Dish's movie add-on free for three months--after that, this will cost $30/month. Now, from what we could gather, it seems like Dish isn't exempt from dodgy customer service and wily hidden fees (mostly in the equipment). It also doesn't offer a lot of bundling opportunities. But if you don't mind these snags, plus the satellite, then Dish is a great, accessible TV option.

Price: $84.99/month

DirecTV's cable packages are some of the most comprehensive you'll find on the market. The cheapest plan, known as the Entertainment package, starts at $85/month and comes with 200 hours of HD DVR (unlimited on cloud). As for channels, some of the more notable ones include CNN, ESPN, The Food Network, TBS, The Disney Channel, and local networks where available. During your first three months, you'll also have access to premium channels like HBO and Showtime. DirecTV's other packages are Choice (which has RSNs), Ultimate (which has even more sports and entertainment), and Premier (which has everything plus premium channels). It may not be explicit about it, but DirecTV does have a 2-year contract, the early termination of which will cost you $20 for each of the remaining months. If this is a deal-breaker, you might want to consider DirecTV Stream, which is the provider's cordless and contractless alternative.

Price: $85/month
