Mother’s Day Streaming TV Bundle
A custom streaming TV bundle for busy moms.
Are you a mother working from home during the pandemic? Or working full-time? Attending college? All three? Then you know how tough it can be to balance work and mom duties. We’ve created The Babysitter—a custom streaming TV bundle containing a ton of kids-and-family content—for you.
Yeah, TV isn’t Mary Poppins. But when you need a couple of uninterrupted hours of work time, or some quality couch time, that mesmerizing box is supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.
The Babysitter starts with Sling TV—CableTV.com’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.
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.
- 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 $35.00/mo.).
- You can bundle Disney+, ESPN+, and Hulu for $13.99 a month (adds $5.99/mo.).
