      We hear you! The skinniest one around is Philo, but we’re always on the lookout for something slimmer. If someone makes a slimmer and cheaper legal streaming option, you’ll hear about it here.

  5. Mimi Groves says:

    I am very upset that the history channel is not on fubo anymore

      For sure. I love the History Channel, too. My wife also lost her Lifetime/LMN on Fubo. So we switched to Hulu+Live TV. The sports are not as robust as with Fubo but we’re not willing to sacrifice these love channels.

  6. Richard Myrvold says:

    fuboTV alerted customers that as of June 30th, 2021, they will no longer carry six A+E Networks channels including, A&E, History Channel, Lifetime, FYI Channel, Lifetime Movie Network, and Vice TV.

    What are the chances that YouTubeTV will provide the History Channel?

    1. mark says:

      like the rest of streaming services, at a high price! what good is “cutting the cord” if streaming services charge the same prices? the whole point was to find a cheaper alternative – to cable,, I my self are not seeing that anywhere on the NET!!!

    2. THOM says:

      They have History but not the premier shows.

  8. L moore says:
