If streaming price hikes or problems with unreliable apps are giving you a headache, you’ve always got alternatives. Special bundles offered by companies joining forces to give you better alternatives and more incentives for your dollars means you’ve still got choices – you just have to know where to look.
Because everyone has unique needs when it comes to streaming, there isn’t one solution that fits all. However, to help you explore some alternatives, we’ve outlined a few options that are being offered during this holiday season.
Hulu + Disney Plus + ESPN Plus bundled offer
Hulu is taking advantage of the excitement over the Disney Plus launch and offering a special bundle that also includes access to ESPN Plus – all for $12.99 per month (as of Dec. 1, 2019). Endless entertainment can be had with this bundle giving you access to over 85,000 episodes of television series from Hulu, everything from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and National Geographic, AND thousands of live sporting events and a robust library of sport shows, documentaries and other sport themed content. Check it out at www.hulu.com.
Sling TV is a solid, budget-friendly option for live and on-demand streaming that allows for a lot of customization. The service offers two basic plan options: Sling Orange (which includes, for example, ESPN and Disney) and Sling Blue (which comes with FX channels, E!, and Syfy), both for $25. If you’d like a combination of both plans, the service also offers and Orange & Blue plan for $40 per month. Right now, all three are on sale at 40 percent off the first month’s base price.
YouTube TV offers both live and on-demand access for around $50 per month, which includes more than 70 channels, and unlimited DVR storage space that saves recordings for 9 months. Premium channels like HBO, Starz and Showtime can be added on for around $10 per month extra.
These options are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to customized streaming solutions available today. It’s enough to give someone streaming paralysis (yes, that’s a thing, read more about it HERE). Also, if you try new streaming apps and have trouble with slow, stuttering connections or excessive lag time, don’t blame your app or your internet service provider too quickly. There are a lot of reasons for your service to slow down, and we lay them all out HERE to help you identify and resolve many common issues quick and easy.
No matter how confusing choosing the right streaming service for you might get, one thing is certain: Softcom will continue to be someone you can count on to provide the high-quality, high-speed internet access you need to watch whatever streaming services you decide are just right for you.
