Best Live TV Streaming Services to watch Live TV on Firestick
Above I shared some free live TV apps to watch free live TV on firestick, the above method to use free live TV apps is not the legal method, and I don’t recommend anyone to use the free method, anyway, the legal method to watch live TV on firestick is by using official live TV streaming apps.
There are many live TV streaming services available online and choosing the best among them is really a hard task, so to save your time I created the list of the top 3 best live TV streaming apps for firestick. All the below apps have been tried and tested by me.
1) Youtube TV
I have talked about Youtube TV a lot in my previous articles and believe me the quality of service that Youtube TV offers are really outstanding. When I was looking for my very first own live TV streaming service, someone suggested Youtube TV, and to be honest, the amount that I spent on it was totally worth it.
Their subscription starts from $64.99/mo and you get more than 85+ live TV channels which is really a good thing. Another good thing is Youtube TV is available on the Amazon app store for free to download. However, to use it, you need to buy a subscription.
2) Sling TV
Sling TV is the cheapest live TV streaming service right now, the price of Sling TV is way lesser than its competitors and this is the biggest advantage of Sling TV. Sling TV offers two packages 1) Blue and 2) Orange Now it depends upon you and your needs which package is suitable for you.
So if your budget is on the lower side then I highly suggest you go with Sling TV. The only drawback of sling TV is that some channels are available as add-ons which are available in the basic package of other’s live TV streaming services.
Sling TV starts from $35/mo which is very reasonable according to me, you will get more than 35 channels in their basic plan. You can also combine both packages and that will cost you around $50.
3) Fubo TV
If you are a sports lover like me and you like to watch lots of Sports TV channels then you should go with Fubo TV as it has so many sports channels. Along with sports channels, you will also find channels from different categories such as Entertainment, Movie, Music, Kids, Spiritual, etc
Fubo TV’s starting price is $70 and in this package, you will get access to more than 80 channels. You can use Fubo TV on firestick, Android TV, and on your smartphone easily. I know the starting price is way too higher but believe me, it is completely worth it if you are into watching sports channels. You will get all sports channels including ESPN on firestick.
