Now on its fourth name in three years, DirecTV Stream ties for the most expensive at $70 (the other is Hulu Plus Live TV). The service does have its pluses, though — for example, it includes the flipper-friendly ability to swipe left and right to change channels. Additionally it includes some channels the other services can’t, including nearly 250 PBS stations nationwide. Read our DirecTV Stream review.

There’s a lot to like about FuboTV — it offers a wide selection of channels and its sports focus makes it especially attractive to soccer fans or NBA, NHL and MLB fans who live in an area served by one of FuBoTV’s RSNs. It’s also a great choice for NFL fans since it’s one of three services, alongside YouTube TV and Hulu, with NFL Network and optional RedZone. Read our FuboTV review.
