Streaming TV services are a thing now, as many people are ditching the cord and changing to this type of technology for their entertainment. The list of options for a streaming TV service is endless and sometimes this can bring a little bit of analysis paralysis, due to the fact that each service is a world on its own in terms of price, content and special features.
However, there’s no need to worry, we did our research on your behalf, to provide you with the top 3 streaming TV apps that will give you the best hours of entertainment in 2018.
Kodi is the best free open-source platform around. You just need to add the best addons and you’re ready to go.
However, there are two things worth considering. First one being the safety of your identity and that’s why purchasing a VPN before adding any add-ons can guarantee that you don’t get hacked or spied on while you get the most out of this amazing platform.
The second reason worth considering is that, although this platform is perfectly legal, many of the content has been used in the past as piracy. So, use your addon wisely and be careful about which addons you choose, as many of them are developed by independent developers that have nothing to do with Kodi per se.
Who knew that a streaming platform that was originally intended by PSP game consoles would now become one of the top streaming TV services around. Well, after you decide to give it a try and take a look at its content and features you’ll know why.
Though not being the cheapest streaming service around, Playstation Vue offers a free 14 day trial that allows you to decide if you want to go for it or not. It also includes the largest variety of premium networks available, some of them including HBO, ABC, Fox and CBS.
It can also be supported from 1 to 5 multiple devices that run on Android iOS, Windows, Nvidia and Shield, besides the obvious PSP consoles.
Finally, in terms of costs the basic access costs you $45.00 per month for the most basic membership whereas the Ultra membership costs you $60 per month with addons of channels like HBO and Showtime costs you an extra amount between $9.00 and $15.00.
From all the streaming services, Sling TV offers the most flexible prices, as being a byproduct of the Dish Network, Sling likes to have the upper hand in having the most competitive prices of the digital content market.
What’s more, Sling TV offers a selective variety of base channel packages and add-on extensions as well as exclusive channels.
Even though the features options on Sling TV is pretty random you can find a hidden diamond once in a while, like the Game Finder option which enables you to find upcoming live stream sports events depending on the package you have.
Another option that is welcomed is the bandwidth limiter which will trigger each time you surpass your data consumption limit.
Finally, in terms of cost, a Sling TV membership goes from $25.00 a month to $40.00 a month and it comes with an initial 7 day free trial. Additional channel add-ons cost between $5.00 to $20.00.
