SAN BRUNO, Calif. – With all the available live TV streaming services right now, the most common question has been the best in the market, and the Cordie Awards 2019 named YouTube TV as the king of cord-cutters for this year.
Some four years ago, live TV streaming services and devices didn’t exist nationwide, but they are making a lot of buzz in the market right now, and there is a lot to choose from.
Among the top seven choices for the award are YouTube TV, fuboTV, Sling TV, Hulu, Philo TV, PlayStation Vue, and AT&T TV NOW. The PlayStation Vue was included despite the scheduled shut down of the service by January 2020. The award was based on the votes from readers of Cord Cutters News.
With 11.5% of the vote, Philo TV took fourth place in the awards. The Live TV streaming service offers a massive collection of networks such as Hallmark, AMC, Discovery, and Viacom for a $20 subscription.
The third on the spot of the best streaming service is Sling TV, with its 13.9% of the vote. It’s considered the oldest live TV streaming service to hit the nationwide market. The service has gained a lot of following as an option for those who still have an antenna but wants additional networks like Disney, Hallmark, and ESPN for $25.
Hulu the followed, bagging the second place with its 14.7% of the vote from Cord Cutters News readers. Hulu has a massive on-demand subscribers list, which the service used to encourage people to subscribe to its streaming service.
But the first place and named as the best live TV streaming service of 2019 is YouTube TV. It might not be the oldest service in cord-cutting history, but it has made a lot of noise when it comes to cord-cutting. With its 37.4% of the vote, which is more than two times of the vote for Hulu in second place, it was a sure win for YouTube TV.
