Live TV streaming services like Hulu Live TV, Sling TV, and YouTube TV routinely change the price of their plans and/or launch limited-time deals for new and existing customers. Knowing what’s available can help you find the best price on a live TV package.

It is not only the cost that can change, as channel lineups are also subject to change at a moment’s notice. With the price and channels never guaranteed, it is always worth being aware of any live TV streaming promotions that are currently available.

Below is a summary of the cheapest plans currently available from each of the main live TV streaming services, along with the minimum number of channels, and any free trials that might be available.

Since Sling TV launched in early 2015, the variety of live TV streaming services has increased greatly, resulting in more choice than ever before. At the same time, the cost of live TV streaming has steadily increased as well, and to the point where most base plans now hover around $70-$80 per month.

That said, prices do vary wildly and there is a number of cheaper live TV services available. While these cheaper live TV options may prove perfect for some homes, others may need to shop around for the best deal on live TV.

Not sure which live TV service is best for you?

If you’re still unsure 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. This is especially true for busier households where a subscription is likely to be shared between multiple people.

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.
