The cost of traditional cable is increasing year after year as most users are giving preference to TV subscription companies like NetFlix and YouTube TV. Although these media services are cheaper and better than the traditional cable, you still have to pay a substantial amount each month to continue to get your favorite TV shows and sports games on your phone and computer. The purpose of this post is to make you aware of some of the free TV streaming sites that are completely legal in the west.
5 Best Free TV Streaming Sites
Here are the best free TV streaming sites in 2019.
Stream2Watch is a free TV streaming site with a powerful search engine that lets you search your favorite TV shows, sports games, and matches for free of cost. You don’t even have to register to use this site. If a game is televised, you are guaranteed to find it on Stream2Watch.
You must already be aware than more than 70 percent of internet users today use their phone for internet surfing. Stream2Watch also has a mobile-friendly version of their site which works equally fine. They also have TV channels from places like USA, UK, and Europe. With all these free services, why pay to watch TV.
Time4TV is another free TV streaming site that is popular amongst sports enthusiasts. Along with the live games and matches, now you can also watch sports news channels on Time4TV. This site has all the TV channels from the UK and USA. They don’t stream any of the channels on their site but merely direct you towards a suitable stream for your network connection and speed. Moreover, the pop-up ads are not as annoying as that of most free live streaming sites. You can easily close them with a single click.
3. YouTube TV
A lot of people still don’t know that YouTube has it’s own TV streaming site. It’s not completely free but you can still watch live TV without any interruption. As of now, this service is only available in the United States. YouTube TV is a paid service but you can watch it for free as a trial. Just login with your Gmail account and click on Try free. This site is only good if you are in the mood to watch some high-quality content for a few days as YouTube will ask you for your payment information after you are done with your trial(14-30days).
Hulu is one of the best TV streaming sites in 2019. It is a paid service but you can get up to 2 months of the trial period in which you get access to thousands of TV channels from all over the world. Hulu is very popular for its generous promotions in which they give away free membership for a few weeks or even months in some cases. Even if you decide to purchase the membership, it will only cost you $5.99/month. It is easy on the pocket for the people who want to save money.
5. Squid TV
Squid TV is the last one on my list of free TV streaming sites for television lovers and binge-watchers. I like how simple and organized Squid TV’s user interface is. There are no annoying and attention-grabbing ads on the home page. Moreover, you can select your channels based on your preferred country or region. For instance, if you click on the United States, you will get a list of all the cities with the regional TV channels. This is a unique feature that I haven’t seen in any other free TV streaming site.
What if the above-mentioned sites don’t work in your region?
Some countries do not allow free live streaming sites on their network. They either block it or ask the service provider to disable services in their country. In such a situation, a virtual private network(VPN) browser extension or an app comes to the rescue.
There are plenty of free VPN plugins available for Google Chrome and Safari. Also, you can change your current location with a mobile app if you want to enjoy watching free live TV from your phone.
