TV and internet in Chicago, IL

Being the third-largest metropolis in the US, Chicago offers more choices in local TV and internet service than most other cities, from both big brands and smaller regional providers. Finding a good deal in the Windy City should be as easy as stumbling into a pro game (Chicago is a serious sports town).

What are the best TV providers in Chicago?

What are the best internet providers in Chicago?

Cable internet comes in as a close second to fiber, and Chicago has three providers that offer it: giant Xfinity (99% coverage) and smaller companies like RCN (22%) and WOW (16%). HughesNet and Viasat satellite internet are also available, but with all of the other internet choices in Chicago, we can’t recommend them. Satellite internet is slow, expensive, and best avoided if possible.

TV choices are even better in Chicago, with six providers that can hook you up: DIRECTV, DISH, Xfinity, RCN, and WOW. DIRECTV and DISH are satellite TV services; Xfinity, RCN, and WOW are cable.

All six of these companies feature similar packages loaded with popular channels across different pay tiers. But DIRECTV has the edge in sports (only DIRECTV carries NFL SUNDAY TICKET—a must-have for most football fans). Also, of the six, RCN and WOW have more limited availability in Chicago than the bigger TV players on the list.

Chicago, Illinois FAQ

How can I watch TV without cable or satellite service?

If you want absolutely free TV, get an antenna—there are plenty of local broadcast channels to enjoy at no cost.

Internet-based streaming TV services charge monthly fees, but they’re almost always cheaper than those of cable or satellite. On-demand services (like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video) offer thousands of shows and movies; livestreaming TV providers (like Sling TV and YouTube TV) emulate the live TV channels and interface of cable, usually with a high-capacity cloud DVR.

Who has the fastest internet in Chicago?

Xfinity and RCN’s cable internet, thanks to recent DOCSIS 3.1 upgrades, can hit download speeds up to 940 Mbps. Meanwhile, AT&T Fiber gets up to 940 Mbps—with 880 Mbps upload speeds.

The major difference is this: fiber internet allows for equal (or close to equal) download and upload speeds, while cable’s upload speeds still max out at around 35 Mbps. If your internet usage doesn’t involve heavy file uploading (home-business owners take note), either type should meet your household’s needs.

  • AT&T Fiber: download speeds up to 940 Mbps, upload speeds to 880 Mbps
  • Xfinity: download speeds up to 1 Gbps (1,000 Mbps), upload speeds to 35 Mbps
  • RCN: download speeds up to 940 Mbps, upload speeds to 20 Mbps
