Since the untimely demise of CNN+, it may seem like there’s a vacuum in the news department of the live streaming industry.
However, nothing could be further from the truth. There are tons of live TV streaming services, and with that comes tons of news resources to watch.
Here’s a look at some of the best streaming services for getting your news fix.
Sling TV offers 50 channels across three packages, tons of on-demand titles, 50 hours of DVR storage, and the ability to stream through up to three devices simultaneously. It is the most customizable platform in the industry.
If you’re a cable news junkie, packages like Sling Blue cut the fat for the lowest price out there.
News channels offered: CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, NBC, Bloomberg, Local Now, and Vice.
The cost: $35 per month, with premium packages featuring additional channels available for each. The service is currently offering 50% off the first month of your subscription, as well.
DirecTV Stream is one of the latest players in the live TV streaming service arena, rebranded from AT&T TV.
