Speed tests between Sling TV, fuboTV, PlayStation Vue and DIRECTV NOW

Ever wonder who would win a speed test between Sling TV, fuboTV, PS Vue and DIRECTV NOW?

Several of our readers have posted comments on our website asking for us to do a laboratory test to determine which of the legal streaming services is the fastest and most reliable.

While we haven’t had a chance to do so yet, we did stumble across a speed test on YouTube. Conducted by fuboTV, the speed test compares Sling TV, fuboTV, PS Vue and DIRECTV NOW. Each of the legal streaming platforms were installed on the same make of laptops and then compared side by side to see which ones were the most

The features tested are:

• Load speed — The load speed of several different videos are tested to see which streaming services are the fastest,

• Live latency — The test sees which service returns to programming first after the commercials end,

While the programming offered by each respective streaming network is important, so too is the speed of how quickly and reliably the content is displayed on your laptop, smartphone, tablet, set top box and TV.

Here’s our side-by-side comparison of all of the legal streaming services offered for soccer fans in the United States. For fans outside the US, you can access the streams using a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to bypass geo-blocking. Those unfamiliar with the technology can check out ExpressVPN’s guide on what is a VPN.
