If you've been thinking of cutting the cable cord to save some money, now is a great time to do so, thanks to the rise in live TV streaming services.

Packages for live TV streaming services start at $25 a month without any extra fees or contracts, which is a far lower price than a cable subscription. You can stream loads of live channels including CNN, NBC, ESPN and Fox on a host of different devices, including set-top boxes and mobile devices, and you don't need q technician to stop by your home. It's so easy to get started.
