What is YouTube TV? And should you ditch cable for Google’s TV service?

YouTube TV is heralded as one of the best streaming live TV services on the market right now, despite the pretty regular price increases it has seen. It now costs $64.99 per month, after costing just $35 a few years ago. It’s the only streaming service that has PBS, and it is also the only one with an unlimited cloud DVR service. Making this a really incredible service for those that are looking to cut the cord from Comcast, Cox, AT&T, Verizon and other cable operators.

A tutorial on the “10 Hidden Amazon Fire Stick Features & Settings”

Here at “Tech News For You” I have been experimenting with various online TV streaming options. So far, I am stuck on the Amazon Fire Stick. I was going to write an article about some of the hidden features and settings that I have come across, but found this great video that covers all the bases. If you are interested in giving an Amazon Fire Stick a try, they are available at Amazon (click here), are reasonable in cost, and provide a great way to cut the cord from cable. What I have found is that the Fire Stick is basically Android on a stick which means you can install many Android apps.

Streaming app Peacock has free movies and TV shows, and it unlocks more if you pay. And it’s finally coming to Roku…

Peacock’s free tier, with about two-thirds of the catalog, is available to watch right away with advertising after you register an email and password. You can unlock the full library of shows and movies for a price — $4.99 a month for the full catalog plus ads or $9.99 a month to go ad-free. Peacock offers a standard seven-day free trial for its premium tiers, and, again, people who sign up on a Google platform like Android can snag an extended free trial.

Get “$5 Off” your first month with “Philo TV”…

Philo is a awesome online streaming TV service that is very economical in cost ($20 per month). Below you will see their channel lineup and if you notice there are no sports channel and the news is limited to BBC (which is a very good news source). This is what keeps their cost down; yet, provide a popular channel lineup.  Here at “Tech News For You”, myself and my wife find the news we need online and the sport channels are really not critical to us. If you want more, check out locast.org (for local stations at $5 per month) and for $25 a month you have some great TV to watch.

Nobody likes paying high cable bills. But if you’re apprehensive about canceling cable entirely, you’re not alone…

Because so many streaming services offer video on demand, cord cutters don’t have to let the cable companies control their schedules. While cable users flip through the channels and complain that nothing is on, cord cutters can navigate right to their favorite shows. Play and pause whenever you feel like it – Netflix, Hulu, and other OTT providers accommodate your schedule. On-demand streaming services are the ultimate DVRs.

Learn how to create your own streaming TV bundle for less than $25

With the launch of several new streaming plans, including NBCUniversal’s Peacock just last month, we decided to see if we could assemble a TV plan on an ultratight budget of $25 per month. While the package we created—CBS All Access, a Disney+ bundle, and Peacock—might not fit every need, it does deliver a surprisingly robust assortment of broadcast channels, cable networks, movies, and original shows.
