Launched in 2019, Vidgo is a live TV streaming service that carries 110+ channels for $59.95 a month, or 150+ channels for $79.95 a month. Besides English-language entertainment, sports, and news channels, Vidgo also offers a Spanish plan with over 50 channels, one of the largest lineups in live TV streaming.
Vidgo leans into sports and family programming, featuring all of the Disney-owned channels, including ESPN, ESPN2, Disney Channel, Disney XD, Freeform, and more. It’s also one of the few live TV streamers that carries Hallmark Channel and Lifetime, as well as beIN Sports.
While Vidgo does give you plenty to stream for $59.95 a month, there are several features you won’t get—like a cloud DVR. Popular channels like TBS, TNT, Syfy, Bravo, and USA are also missing on Vidgo.
But, the channels Vidgo does carry are arranged in a singular, smartly arranged layout that definitely won’t give you option overload (we’re looking at you, Sling TV and YouTube TV). Vidgo also features an exclusive “Social TV” chatroom experience where you can interact with like-minded TV fans in real time—even post-pandemic, it’s a cool idea.
If your TV-watching needs fall in line with Vidgo’s channels offerings, and you can live without DVRed shows (not everyone records 500 hours of content a week like we do at CableTV.com, or so we’ve heard), it’s a simple, elegant live TV streamer for the money. If you’re more of an on-the-go mobile viewer, even better.
