List of Best Online TV Providers

In today's age, online TV has gained the upper hand as compared to a standard TV. Because, with online TV, there is a possibility to watch the favourite shows anytime. Most people, especially, the seniors too, are switching to online TVs because of such a facility.

However, the catch here is that everything here is not a free lunch. Some of the online shows have subscription policies attached to it. So, how to overcome it and enjoy viewing some online entertainment? 

Here are a few ways of watching online television for nothing; however, the quality of contents may vary: 

A free trial option:

Majority of streaming administrations provide free sign-ups to those who are using it for the first-time. For instance, Hulu, and Netflix can be watched for free for a month, and Sling television, HBO Now, and DirecTV Now can be watched for a week without any charges. Of course, a trial is a solution for the time being; however, it's a smart approach that one finds out what are the services he/she prefer. This will be handy when the ser decides to switch his/her pack with an elective membership. One must make sure to cancel his/her account towards when the end date of the trial period is getting nearer. This will prevent the user from being charger further.

Utilizing a free site for streaming or mobile application: 

If someone doesn't like to tamper with the trial options and doesn't like to go for elective membership either, there are alternatives too. Sites like Sony Crackle offers a wide range of selective television content for nothing. However, there are ads to content with though. 

On network applications and websites, including Fox, and NBC, one can see free episodes of present and mainstream appears on that network. However, to observe full seasons or live television, one needs to sign in to a current account with a cable TV service provider. A user must ensure an application or site is dependable before streaming. He/she must go through the client surveys in the application store and search for secure URLs that start with "https" as opposed to "http." 

For free downloads, one should check the application store:

Digital stores like Google Play and iTunes include free television sections that merit exploring. A user can go through and download an entire episode of selected shows on their smartphones, PC's or tablet. However, they might not get an excellent collection. Assortments regularly are constrained to pilots and scenes from earlier series. 

Reward points collection:

A few organizations offer reward-based programs that accompany advantages suitable for television watchers. With Microsoft Prizes, one can win points. It can be for performing assignments like taking tests, utilizing the web crawler Bing, making buys from the Microsoft Store or surfing the web with the Microsoft Edge internet browser. It is possible to reclaim these points for gift vouchers from retailers like Walmart and Amazon. Here a user can purchase downloadable, or streaming television content on the web. 

Most undertakings offer payment somewhere in the range of 5-50 points. Five thousand pints are equivalent to about 5 USD, as Microsoft states. Scores might be topped day by day or month to month, contingent upon the assignment. However, in case one is willing to put the time in return for complimentary gifts, he/she can think about joining this or a similar program, as InstaGC or Swagbucks. 

Offers from smartphone carriers:

TV and mobile have gotten progressively interlaced, so it's evident that a significant part of smartphone carriers presently offer streaming administrations as something extra for clients. Verizon offered a year of subscription of Disney+ for nothing with unlimited plans. For instance, T-Mobile incorporates a standard Netflix membership with select plans, and AT&T clients get an HBO membership with selected plans (unlimited). 

One can compare the total price of plan of their current phone and pay for a streaming administration out of pocket with the expense of another arrangement to decide if they will save their money by changing over.


With the world going digital, switching over to online television is the order of the day. Although these services come with payment plans, still there is an opportunity for people (and seniors those who aren't will to spend a lot of their money from retirement) to enjoy these services for free.
