Making the switch from traditional TV to streaming services can feel a little overwhelming. There are so many streaming apps and services to choose from, it’s difficult to know where to begin. Ask yourself what shows and content are most important to you and make a list of those shows. From here, you can narrow down which streaming services to consider based on their content.
You can use www.thestreamable.com as a resource for identifying which streaming services have the content that’s important to you. This online tool will show you which services carry which channels. From here you’ll select a streaming device. Smart TVs, Roku, Amazon Fire, Chromecast, Apple TV, and Nvidia Shield can all be used to connect to various streaming services.
If one streaming service doesn’t have all of your desired content, don’t fret. The advantage of streaming is that it is much cheaper than traditional TV. This means you can choose multiple streaming services and still save money! Perhaps YouTube TV and Hulu will be a great combination for you. Streaming services are still in their early stages and constantly changing so don’t panic if a service you thought would be a good fit doesn’t end up working out for you. You’re not bound by contracts with streaming services so you can choose a new one at any time to better fit your needs.
Some of the most popular streaming services are YouTube TV, Hulu, Sling TV, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and AT&T TV Now. New options like Apple TV Plus and Disney Plus are coming out as well. We’ll be sure to see even more options emerging as we get into 2020.
