Not sure which live TV service is best for you?

If you are still unsure of which live TV service to go with, it might be worth taking a closer look at some of the non-price differences to see if they can help narrow down the list.

For example, limitations of the cloud DVR or the number of simultaneous streams can affect the suitability of a live TV service, and especially for busier households where a subscription is likely to be shared between multiple people.

John's preferred live TV streaming service right now is YouTube TV although he does tend to switch live TV services multiple times each year to keep up to date with their changes. Outside of live TV, John also actively streams HBO Max (for the shows), Peacock (for Premier League), and Paramount Plus (for Champion's League). However, John is also currently subscribed to Apple TV+, Discovery+, Hulu, Starz, Showtime, and Shudder.

Hi Kevin,

YouTube TV only allows three people (devices) to watch at the same time. However, YouTube TV also offers a $19.99 per month 4K Plus add-on which makes it possible to stream on an unlimited number of devices (in the home) at the same time.
