8 Best Live TV Services That Offer Free Trial

cord-cuttingUpdated August 2, 2022 • Staff

There are more and more options to cut the cord and keep your live TV channels without paying obscene fees. This has made choosing between them difficult, especially as each one has specific pricing plans that include some channels and not others, as well as add-ons, specific device availability, and varying interfaces. 

The best way to determine which cord-cutting live TV service is for you is by getting a free trial. You can get a free trial for live TV on Philo, Hulu, Youtube TV, Fubo, Spectrum TV, Xfinity Choice, Frndly TV, and Paramount+

Below, count down the best live TV services that still offer a free trial using a unique concept: how many channels each dollar will get you. This will hopefully help you get a glimpse of the quality-price ratio for each subscription.

Philo

More than 60 live channels, unlimited DVR storage, and streaming on multiple devices for $25 a month? It’s hard to find a sweeter cord-cutting deal.
