Bottom line: Is Sling TV or Hulu + Live TV better?
Sling TV and Hulu + Live TV are two of the biggest players in the livestreaming TV game. One is an excellent service that offers a surprising amount of popular entertainment, sports, and local channels at an attractive price point; the other is Sling TV—but we’re getting ahead of ourselves.
Hulu + Live TV blew away the competition in CableTV.com’s most recent Streaming Provider Customer Satisfaction Survey, and that didn’t even cover its large catalog of on-demand and original content (you know, Hulu’s initial function). Obviously, we dig Hulu + Live TV.
Not that Sling TV should be completely written off—if you want to get into livestreaming on the cheap and like the idea of creating your own custom channel lineups (especially for kids and sports), it’s definitely worth a look. We still prefer Hulu + Live TV; let us tell you all the reasons why.
