How To Stream 1080p To Tv ((FREE))



Canceling your cable contract doesn't mean that you can no longer watch live TV. Many video streaming services deliver live channels over an internet connection, though they cater to different viewers. For example, some live TV services are good for general audiences, others offer top sports channels, and a few focus on entertainment and lifestyle content.

All the options in this roundup are available across many platforms, including mobile devices, web browsers, gaming consoles, and media streaming devices. Depending on which (and how many) services you subscribe to, you may even end up saving money versus your old cable bill. Other people may just cherish the freedom to build an à la carte channel plan (though this flexibility is becoming rare). Whatever your reason for leaving cable behind, know that the number of live TV streaming options continues to rise. These are our top picks.


Hulu is one of the best all-in-one options for cord cutters, given its diverse set of streaming options. In addition to a strong library of classic shows and a good selection of movies, Hulu has a robust live TV option (more than 70 channels of news, sports, and entertainment programming). After adding 14 Viacom channels to its lineup, including BET, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, Paramount Network, Hulu recently picked up NFL Network and NFL RedZone.


Anyone seeking streaming convenience without abandoning traditional, live TV. Hulu's basic on-demand streaming plan currently costs $6.99 per month, while the ad-free version is $12.99 per month. College students can get Hulu's ad-supported version for $1.99 per month. The Hulu + Live TV plan costs $64.99 per month, and combines Hulu's live TV service with the ad-supported streaming plan. Plus, you can add Enhanced Cloud DVR (it increases the available DVR storage from 50 hours to 200 hours) or the Unlimited Screens package (it allows an unlimited number of concurrent device streams in your home, and up to three outside of it) to your plan for $14.99 per month each, or $19.99 for both.


YouTube TV is your best option for replacing cable. If YouTube TV's library still doesn't meet your needs, you can add other packages, such as Acorn TV, CuriosityStream, and NBA League Pass to your subscription. The Entertainment Plus package bundles HBO Max, Showtime, and Starz for $30 per month. YouTube TV's most recent 4K Plus add-on ($19.99 per month) unlocks 4K streaming, support for an unlimited number of simultaneous streams, and offline viewing of DVR content. With YouTube TV, you get unlimited cloud DVR storage, too. The service keeps your recordings for nine months, and you can stream your content from anywhere in the US.


Television lovers who don't want to miss a second of the programming. FuboTV offers excellent DVR capabilities (250 hours of storage by default that can be increased to 1,000 hours) and supports three simultaneous streams (this limit expands to 10 via an add-on). The Lookback feature lets you watch anything you may have missed up to 72 hours after it first aired, while the Startover capability enables you to watch currently airing events from the beginning no matter when you tuned into the program.


Most live TV subscriptions cost much more than the typical streaming video service, but at $25 per month, Philo is a far more appealing investment. Even with the cheaper price tag, Philo manages to deliver an impressive channel lineup with reliable streaming performance and intuitive DVR functionality.


Sling TV has multiple, flexible plans that let you create the live streaming plan that works best for you. You can even watch some on-demand content for free. Its highest tiers have increased in price over time, topping out at $50 per month for the combined plan. Still, we appreciate any service with robust viewing options.


Formerly known as AT&T TV, DirecTV Stream is a premium live streaming service with the features to match. It supports 20 simultaneous streams, parental control options, and improved DVR functionality with unlimited storage and the ability to save up to 30 episodes for up to nine months. Just be prepared to spend at least $70 per month (and potentially more than twice that, depending on your plan).


So long as the video streaming service you choose offers affiliate broadcast channels in your market, you can watch your favorite network shows from the likes of ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC. Most of the services here, including YouTube TV and Hulu + Live TV host these networks. YouTube TV is the only service we've reviewed that include local PBS channels.


Other television channels aren't dependent on your geographic location. Philo is an excellent option for watching such entertainment networks, including AMC, Animal Planet, Food Network, HGTV, Lifetime, Nickelodeon, and Travel Channel. Many video streaming services with entertainment channels also include on-demand content from those channels that you can watch at your leisure and record to DVR storage. Other services combine live TV with more traditional on-demand libraries. A subscription to Hulu + Live TV, for instance, lets you watch all the shows and movies from Hulu's on-demand service, including its original shows.


To watch all the sports that you previously could with your cable subscription, you should consult our roundup of the best sports streaming services. When picking a service, verify that it carries all the channels you want to watch in your area, including regional sports networks (RSNs) for coverage of local MLB, NBA, and NHL teams. Most services offer the NBC Sports RSNs, but DirecTV Stream is the only one in this list that offers Bally Sports RSNs (previously FOX Sports networks) and AT&T-owned SportsNet RSNs, too. Which RSNs you need depends on your location and the sports you like to watch.


We assume that you want the best streaming quality for watching your favorite teams no matter what device you use. YouTube TV and Hulu + Live TV support 1080p/60fps live streams on select platforms. FuboTV was the first of the live TV services to broadcast select events in 4K, but a new add-on brings that capability to YouTube TV. A few services also have useful capabilities for sports fans. DirecTV Stream and fuboTV, for instance, include DVR features that respectively let you start broadcasts from the beginning should you jump into them mid-game, and watch matches that have aired in the past few days. Note that these features are only available on select channels.


If you are an NFL fan, check out our roundup of the best NFL streaming services to make sure you can watch all the games on Thursday, Sunday, and Monday. If you don't want to pay additional fees every month to watch NFL games, there are some free options. For instance, the NFL Mobile and Yahoo Sports apps let you watch in-market and prime-time games, including Thursday Night Football, Sunday Night Football, and Monday Night Football. Subscribers to Amazon Prime can also watch Thursday Night Football games at no additional cost, while paid Peacock subscribers can stream Sunday Night Football broadcasts.


All of the streaming services in this roundup offer some DVR capabilities. If you are the kind of viewer that likes to save and rewatch significant TV moments, you should ideally look for a service that lets you record many hours' worth of shows and keep them indefinitely. Robust DVR capabilities are useful for sports fans too; some games may air at an inconvenient time. YouTube TV is unique in that one of its available add-ons lets you download DVR content for offline viewing on mobile devices.


The best live TV streaming services support mobile devices, game consoles, web browsers, streaming devices, and smart TVs. With some services, you also get greater control over accessibility settings and parental controls than with cable. DirecTV Stream and Sling TV let parents restrict what their kids can watch by rating, for example.


We don't include single-channel options, such as Paramount+, or those services that only stream live sports, such as Amazon Prime Video, Dazn, ESPN+, and Peacock. Those services are all too narrow in scope to be reasonable alternatives to cable.


We also don't include Pluto TV and Xumo in this roundup, since they primarily offer preprogrammed content, rather than live TV channels. However, some people may appreciate channels of endless content streams (and that they are free streaming services). Plex also offers preprogrammed content and can serve as a live TV interface if you set up the correct hardware.


You could absolutely set up a digital antenna and tuner to pull down local channels over the air on your own, too. If an event is popular enough, such as a political debate or the Olympics, the broadcast may be free to stream online from the organizer's website.


Although you may intend to replicate your cable experience on a 1:1 basis with video streaming services, we recommend that you don't. Take some time to determine which channels you actually watch on a regular basis. On-demand services open up an entirely new world of content, with many shows that don't air on traditional cable. These on-demand shows also tend to be the subject of pop culture discussions and critical acclaim. Amazon Prime Video's The Wheel of Time, Disney+'s Hawkeye, Netflix's Stranger Things, and Paramount+'s Star Trek: Discovery are just a few examples. Apple TV+, Disney+, Hulu, and HBO Max also feature original content that you can't get anywhere else. Cinephiles should check out our roundup of the best movie streaming services, too.


For even more on streaming, check out five reasons to ditch your video subscription and keep cable. Learn how to pick streaming services that fit your budget, and enjoy all sorts of reality show trash. Finally, check out our recommended streaming video guides if you don't know what to watch.


If you have an HD TV, you want Blu-ray quality video at a minimum. Blu-rays have a resolution of up to 1080p, or even 4K in some newer cases, so they will take full advantage of the amazing screen you paid so much for. 350c69d7ab
