If you still prefer the traditional TV channel experience but want some of the flexibility that streaming technology has to offer, DirecTV Now is an alternative to PlayStation Vue and Sling TV.

DirecTV Now starts at $35/mo for 60 channels and ends at $70/mo for the full 120+ channels package. In terms of programming the usual channels are available, excluding CBS, Showtime, and NFL Sunday Ticket. Two simultaneous streaming can be watched at any time.

HBO’s catalog can be added for just $5/mo, which is significantly cheaper than the stand-alone HBO Now service.

Packages:
  • Live a Little: $35 / month (60+ channels)
  • Just Right: $50 / month (80+ channels)
  • Go Big: $60 / month (100+ channels)
  • Gotta Have It: $70 / month (120+ channels)
