Editor's choice award for families

The Babysitter

Neutralize the kiddos while you work from home

Includes: Sling Orange w/ Sling Orange 4 Extras Deal add-on (incl. Kids Extra Pack), Disney+, HBO Max
Live channels: 38+
Total price: $75.98/mo.

The Babysitter starts with Sling TV—’s Best for Kids pick. With the Sling Orange plan and its Kids Extra add-on, you’ll have Baby Jr., Boomerang, Cartoon Network, Disney Channel, Duck TV, Nick Jr., Nicktoons, and TeenNick. Yes, that creates some overlap with Disney+, but the reason you want Disney+ in this bundle is for its on-demand content.

As for HBO Max, it has loads of family-friendly movies and shows, all organized into age groups and even content “hubs” for networks and studios like Sesame Workshop (Sesame Street), Cartoon Network, Studio Ghibli, Looney Tunes, DC Universe, and (soon) Discovery+. You can also create a profile for each child, which lets you customize parental controls according to each kid’s age/maturity level/chore-completion status.

Pro tip: If you’d prefer a traditional cable or satellite TV provider, check out DISH Network. It’s our editorial pick for best overall TV provider—and also the best TV provider for families, thanks to its affordability, transparent pricing, abundance of kids-and-family channels, and excellent parental controls.

One drawback to this bundle is that Sling TV doesn’t carry a lot of local broadcast affiliates. But you can get those channels by purchasing an OTA antenna. You can get one for as little as $25, but Sling TV will give you one free if you prepay for two months of service.

Customize it

  • Sling Blue is the same price as Orange, but it doesn’t have Disney Channel—fortunately, you’ll still have that huge Disney+ on-demand library. And with Sling Blue, you can add the à la carte Kids Extra pack for $5.00/mo. instead of 4 Extras (saves $8.00/mo.).
  • If your budget’s super tight, Sling Free has Cartoon Network, DuckTV, Kabillion, Pocketwatch, and Ryan Friends (saves $40.00/mo.).
  • You can bundle Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu for $13.99 a month (adds $5.99/mo.).
