PlayStation Vue vs. Sling TV vs. fuboTV comparison of top streaming services

Between PlayStation Vue, Sling TV and fuboTV, which is the better streaming service for residents in the United States?

The short answer is it depends on you.

Each streaming service is different in many ways. Not every streaming service offers the same channels. Some offer DVR functionality, some do not. The pricing is different with each one, and each of them offers different special offers. So, at the end of the day, it all depends what you and your family or partner wants or needs.

To make the process easier, we’ve compiled the most up-to-date listing of all of the features and functionality offered by the three leading streaming providers that we recommend in the United States — PS VUE, Sling TV and fuboTV. We haven’t included YouTube TV or Hulu Live.

Here’s the comparison guide for PlayStation Vue vs. Sling TV vs. fuboTV:

As you can see from the list above, the choices are almost endless. Sling TV has been around the longest, and while the amount of channels available is lengthy, sometimes all of the different packages and options can be confusing. And fuboTV, while not having the ESPN channels, offers the most cost-effective option for many consumers (again depending on what channels you want).
