Two Months of Free TV via Streaming Service Free Trials

If you haven't cut the cord yet then one of the steps you should take is to try out the various online TV streaming services.    The major services all offer free trials usually for a week.    With so many services competing and all of them offering trials you can actually string together about two full months of free television by doing free trials back to back.

Here are the services and the free trial lengths plus the potentially available addon channels.

Hulu  live TV 7 days
possible addons : HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, Starz

Philo 7 days
possible addons : none ?

Youtube TV 14 days
(possible + Showtime, Starz

Playstation Vue 5 days
HBO, Showtime, Cinemax

DirectTV Now 7 days
HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, Starz

Sling TV 7 days
possible addons : showtime, starz ?

fuboTV 7 days
possible addons : Showtime, NBA league pass

You can follow the links to find the details on what channels each service offers and what devices they support.

For the addon channels I believe you can get those in your free trial as well in all cases but I am not 100% certain.   I've already tested each service myself and I can't remember the details on all services so sorry I can't go back and check it.    So this can potentially give you two months of free movie channels too and thats a good deal in itself.

Of courses it should be clear that the different services all have different offerings and you won't be able to watch every show every day if you're jumping around from service to service.

Note that Hulu Live TV is different than the plain Hulu service.    Basic Hulu does not carry live cable networks.    This is the Hulu Live TV version with over 55 channels for ~$40/mo
