For all the appeal of services like Netflix and HBO Now, some people just can't bear to part with live TV when they cut the cord. Here are the major options compared, and how to decide which to get — if any.
People truly wanting to cut the cord now have three major internet TV services to choose from: Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, and DirecTV Now. All of them support iOS devices and the Apple TV, among other platforms — which one if any should you consider subscribing to?
Sling TV on Thursday announced a slew of changes to its streaming service, including several new channels and the creation of "Orange" and "Blue" tiers, the latter bringing multi-stream support out of beta.
Dish Network is in talks to merge with T-Mobile U.S., a report said on Thursday, and while major details remain unsorted, the companies are believed to be closely aligned about what a resulting entity would look like — one that might pose a threat to Apple's rumored subscription TV service.
The Sling TV subscription service is now available on Xbox One, and will add A&E, History, and Lifetime later this month, expanding its offerings as new rumors suggest Apple plans to compete with its own subscription service starting this fall.
