As reported earlier, Disney-owned channels have been removed from YouTube TV and many consumers out there are looking for a new place to go to watch their favorite channels live.
Here are some live TV streaming services to look into and get by while Google/YouTube TV and Disney are trying to reach an agreement.
- Hulu with Live TV: The service costs $69.99 a month, which is $5 more than YouTube TV at $64.99 a month, but the service will include all of your local TV stations, ESPN networks, other Disney-owned networks such as Freeform, Disney Channel, FX and FXX, and has most of the channels that YouTube TV currently has.
- fuboTV: This is another service that costs $64.99 a month and includes all of the previously mentioned Disney-owned networks too.
- VidGo: It starts at just $55 a month and has 95+ channels that include all of the Disney-owned channels, and is cheaper than the two previously mentioned live TV streaming services.
- Sling TV: If you sign up for the Sling Blue + Orange plan, it will have a lot of the Disney-owned channels that you had previously on YouTube TV. This plan currently costs $50 a month, but just $20 for your first month.
- DirecTV Stream: Despite the price increase coming early next year, this live TV streaming service does start at $69.99 a month for its Entertainment plan that will have both ESPN and ESPN 2 on it for sports fans, and other Disney-owned channels like Freeform, FX and FXX.
All of the streaming services listed in this article are available to use and stream on the iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Apple TV and Mac.
