Vidgo Review 2022
Vidgo might not have on-demand content, but you’ll get access to loads of English- and Spanish-language channels
Vidgo is one of the newest live TV streaming services on the market, and we’re here to help you decide if you should subscribe.
Vidgo has one of the best dollar-to-channel ratios compared to other services, but you’ll have to live without on-demand content and a Cloud DVR.
Vidgo gives you more than 95 channels for $55 per month, and you can get this service for $10 for the first month if you want to try it out before committing to the bigger price tag.
Let’s get into all of the details of this new streaming service.
- Vidgo has an excellent dollar-to-channel ratio.
- Vidgo offers most of the popular channels we all love, like HGTV and ESPN.
- Vidgo doesn’t offer any on-demand content.
- You won’t find your premium channels (like SHOWTIME) on this live TV streaming service.
- Vidgo doesn’t have a DVR.
How much does Vidgo cost?
Vidgo’s price is fair for the number of channels you receive.
Although Vidgo’s pricing looks great, you have to consider that you aren’t receiving on-demand content or a DVR in your plan.
If you can live without either of those, then we recommend Vidgo for you. (And don’t forget, you only have to pay $10 for your first month.)
*Data effective 8/4/2021. Price and channel inclusion vary according to location.
Does Vidgo have a contract or fees?
Vidgo doesn’t have a contract and has zero fees. Another point for Vidgo.
Vidgo doesn’t currently have a DVR, but it could in the future, and it will likely be an extra fee. So, keep an eye on that because we know we need a DVR in our busy lives.
Which channels does Vidgo have?
Vidgo offers more than 95 channels, and those channels include both English and Spanish.
Like other live TV streaming services, the number of channels and the specific channels you can access varies depending on where you live.
You could potentially get up to 98 English-language and 31 Spanish-language channels.
We wish Vidgo would offer a free trial so you can see if your service will have live TV channels you want before paying, but $10 for your first month isn’t too horrible (*shrug*).

How does Vidgo work?
Vidgo’s home screen is pretty intuitive and easy to navigate, but it might take a little getting used to if you’re accustomed to other live TV streaming services.
We’ll go over the parts we don’t like about Vidgo and end on a good note with the features we think you might like.
First, you won’t find an on-demand tab at the top since Vidgo doesn’t offer on-demand content. This is a big deal because most live TV streaming services do.
That, and the fact that Vidgo doesn’t have a DVR, can very easily be a dealbreaker for some. Not everyone is home the moment their favorite TV show is airing live.
The second downside to Vidgo's user interface is that you won't see a Record button when you click on a movie or show. And lastly, you won’t find channels broken down into a list of genres.
Instead, you’ll find a few tabs at the top to help you get to what you want: All, Recent, Entertainment, Sports, and Family.
We like how you can preview the program in the little box on the right before clicking the expand screen button to watch.
Vidgo makes it easy for English and Spanish speakers, which is unique in the live TV streaming industry. Not only does Vidgo offer up to 31 Spanish-language channels, but you can easily change the language of your user interface by clicking the English or Spanish button on the top right-hand corner when you first log in.
Recap: Is Vidgo worth it?
If you say yes to most of these questions, then you might have found your next live TV streaming service:
- Do you want up to 98 English and 31 Spanish-language channels?
- Do you want to pay 56 cents per channel (one of the lowest ratios in the industry)?
- Can you live without recording movies and TV shows to watch for later?
- Can you do without on-demand content and binge-watching?
With Vidgo, you’ll get most of the popular entertainment, sports, news, kids, and lifestyle channels at the touch of your fingertips. Everyone in the house will have something to watch, and you won’t have to break the bank to make it happen.
If you’re looking for a more well-rounded live TV streaming service that includes 85+ channels, on-demand content, premium channels, and a Cloud DVR, we recommend fuboTV or YouTube TV. And if DVR is a make-or-break for you, check out our review of the 6 Best Streaming Cloud DVRs.
