Sling TV is more of a gateway to reclaiming those cable channels that you cut the cord on, than it is a streaming service in the typical sense. You can get your favorite news channels, live sports, and live entertainment channels all in one place.

Sling TV has three different tears for their program and the rates are based on the number of available channels and the number of devices you plan to stream on. They do offer discounts for your first month with the service, knocking the cost down to $10 which is nice if you just want to test it out.

YouTube TV

Compared to Hulu + Live TV, you do get twenty more channels with YouTube TV and for $10 less. You also have the option to add premium channels for an additional cost, like you can with Prime Video and Hulu.
