A closer look at Vidgo TV

I said recently that I would be looking at live streaming services. And it's only fair for you to know ahead of time that I don't regularly use a live streaming service. If you want to know why, read my recent post about that.

For now, I'm taking a look at one of the live streaming services: Vidgo TV.

Vidgo doesn't get a lot of love from the Internet. Many reviews of live streaming services completely leave Vidgo out. There's not even a Wikipedia page for Vidgo. Yet, it's a legitimate live streaming service that offers a decent package, compared to some other services.

The pricing is $15 cheaper than YouTube TV, and $10 cheaper than Hulu+Live TV or DirecTV Stream. It is more than Sling TV, but it has more than Sling TV.

I counted 113 channels in the Vidgo Plus package, which runs $60/month.

Vidgo is lacking in regards to local channels compared to YouTube TV, Hulu+Live TV, or DirecTV Stream. Vidgo only has ABC and Fox local stations, meaning no CBS or NBC. Also, some of the channels that are only available in the Premium package are available free elsewhere. Not all, by any means, but some, including Shout! Factory TV, MST3K, Johnny Carson, Carol Burnett, and a few others are available as live streams on Pluto TV, Roku Channel, Xumo, Sling TV Free, and other services.

Even so, the $60 package, although up from $55 in the past couple of months, does have a wide selection of channels, including a lot of sports channels.

It's not for me, but none of these live streaming services are. But, it is for many people. You may find that Vidgo TV fits into your Streaming Life.
