Updated Sept. 18, 2019: With this major Fall 2019 update, you can now easily select which services you want to compare. We've also done a full audit of the channel listings.

The biggest question when you're looking at cutting the cord and moving to an all-streaming solution is this: "But can I watch ..."

The back half of that question is going to be different for all of us, of course. Maybe you're way into movies. Maybe you have to have sports. Maybe local channels are the most important. Maybe it's something more obscure. But what you'll quickly find is that, YES, you can watch the same things you watched before.

The real questions are "How?", "Where?", and "What's it gonna cost me?"

We've got you covered. The Streaming Channel Matrix is a high-level look at which channels are available on which major streaming platforms, all in one place.

How to use this matrix

If the list below looks daunting, that's because it is. There are a lot of channels available on the major streaming platforms. Here are some suggestions for how to use this matrix:

  • We've already selected the largest of the streaming services for you. That's Sling TV, AT&T TV Now, YouTube TV, PlayStation Vue, and Hulu with Live TV.
  • Click the boxes to change the views however you'd like.
  • One big caveat, though: This list of channels shows everything available on a service. But some services have more than one package. So, for instance, a channel you see listed here on PlayStation Vue may not be available on its least-expensive option. You'll want to click through to the listings for each individual service for a closer look.
  • Or a service like AT&T TV Now — which certainly has a lot of channels — has a separate Spanish-language package that will skew the overall number of channels shown. We've included it, though, because it's a major package, and an important option.
  • And Sling TV gets even more complicated. It's got two main trunks — Sling Orange, and Sling Blue. (Or you can get both.) And those trunks have optional add-on branches. So you'll absolutely need to click through to figure out exactly which packages you'll want.

Also: As you can imagine, services change up their channels all the time — and they don't always tell us. If you spot something that's not quite right, please shoot us an email.

And with that, scroll on through to find the channels that matter most. And continue on down to the bottom — we've got a little more info that you need to know.

This just a starting point. Most of the major streaming services (save for YouTube TV and Hulu Live) have different packages available at different price points — and, yes, with different channels available. (Yes, a lot like cable TV. Some things never change.)

And to repeat: Just because you see a channel is available on a particular service doesn't guarantee that it's available on the least-expensive plan, or without a separate fee.

Once you think you've found the streaming service that's right for you, you'll want to click through to it to check out the individual packages to really get into it and start pricing things out. Here's that list again:

PlayStation Vue | DirecTV Now | Sling TV | Hulu Live | YouTube TV | Philo
