Okay, I found my channel(s). What now?

If only one streaming TV service has your must-have channel, then your decision is already made for you. For example, HGTV isn’t available on fuboTV, so Property Brothers junkies will be using DIRECTV NOW or Sling to get their fix.

If you find your favorite channels are on two or more different streaming services, we recommend doing just a little more research to find the best TV streaming experience. We love TV, so we’ve reviewed DIRECTV NOW, Sling TV, fuboTV, PlayStation Vue, and the best live TV streaming services.

DIRECTV NOW, Sling TV, fuboTV, and PlayStation Vue have plenty of similarities—cloud DVR, add-on packages, etc.—and each offers free, easy-to-cancel trials. So if you’re trying to decide between them, just try them all. We did, and it takes less than five minutes to sign up for or cancel service.

Got channel questions?

  • Ron

    HGTV is available on sling, FYI

    • http://dev-reviewsorg.pantheon.io Scott T.

      Doh! Fixed that.

  • Ron

    HGTV is also available on FuboTv…I’d delete that entire section of your review.

    • http://dev-reviewsorg.pantheon.io Scott T.

      Holy cow! Thanks for catching that. We fixed it.

  • http://dev-reviewsorg.pantheon.io/ Trevor Wheelwright

    Yes Doug, that’s our recommendation!

    The interface caters to sports more, which helps you find what you want to watch quicker.

      Thank you Trevor!!

  • itsSunYam

    Might want to update this. fuboTV offers Food Network, LMN, Local NOW, PAC-12, they just got the CBS channels (some depends on your area), heard rumors they will be getting Showtime since it’s owned by CBS, with more channels coming.

  • Laurel Pearl-Gross

    does direct offer on demand? To clarify can I view the most recent episodes of a particular show at anytime after the original airing?

  • http://dev-reviewsorg.pantheon.io/ Trevor Wheelwright

    Hey Gio,
    FuboTV expanded its American Football offering recently with NFL Network and a few others. Check out your subscription to see if any new channels were added (NFL Network was added to Premier for free), or if you see new add-on packs available to you at an additional cost.

  • Brent Norway

    No, but you get more discounts if you do

  • GK

    So far DIRECTV NOW is looking god but I need to watch the Red Sox season without going through Comcast NESNgo is allegedly a stream option but don’t know what to choose re: streaming offer. Any suggestions?

  • Matt

    There are a bunch of channels Fubo gets that say “no” on this list. Fake news. Food Network, Travel Channel, NFL, Red Zone, Local Now, Weather Channel, Unimas, Universal Kids (sprout doesn’t exist anymore), Olympic Channel ( Universal channel doesn’t exist anymore), all Showtime channels, all PAC 12 channels, etc. This “ list” is a sham.

  • Carlos Nunez

    wait direct tv now has BEIN sports???? since when??

  • Chuck

    You have LMN and Lifetime Movie Network listed separately and some carrying one but not the other – aren’t they the same?

    • Maria Millett

      Oh thank you for catching that! We will delete one of those.

  • Rich Oberst

    Wrong. TNT and USA are both available in Sling Blue

    • Maria Millett

      Thanks for letting us know, Rich!

  • Wyre

    Update for your chart: DirectTVNow does offer TCM … on its least expensive tier. There are not a lot of “72 hr rewind” choices for previously aired films, and you can’t log in to the TCM app with DTVN credentials ( which may be the case with all streaming service accounts), but it does offer Live Turner Classic movies. That was a big selling point for me.

    • Maria Millett

      Thanks for the update!!

  • Yovizna

    DTN has now the ability of recording on the cloud. The article is accurate now. 3/2018

    • Maria Millett

      Thanks for the update!

  • Maria Millett

    Hi Randall! We are always updating our pages, we will add this one to our queue!

  • Jack Bish

    I just cancelled ps vue because they didn’t have a&e. I still don’t see it in the channel lineup on their website.

  • Jim

    All of these are off. I’m looking at this and the sites of the streaming services at the same time and you have yeses where there should be no’s and no’s where there should be yeses.

  • Froide

    Thanks for the comparisons. This chart needs to things, though: (1) distinctions among Sling Blue, Sling Orange, Sling Blue+Orange, and those configurations’ associated Extras, and (2) monthly updates to reflect these services’ rapidly changing lineups.

  • Mary

    When was this list last updated? Do not see where changes were made based on the comments made.

  • Respected Citizen

    DirecTV Now does have Aspire, CBS*, CBS Sports, My Network TV*, NHL Network, Ovation, Pop, Reelz, Sportsman, TCM, Universal Kids, Up, and 4 add-on packages: HBO, Cinemax, Starz and Showtime. ESPN Goal Line and SEC+ was available last season on the app with DTV Now credentials.

    Fubo has NFL Network and RedZone, not DirecTV Now.

    Spike became the Paramount Network, Centric became BET Her, and Universal became the Olympics Channel. Comcast Sports channels were all rebranded as NBC Sports channels.

    NBC Universo is the same thing as Universo.
