It’s the cord cutter’s dilemma. If you get rid of your cable, you’ll save a lot of money. And you’ll still have plenty of entertainment options, thanks to online streaming. But there will still be something missing from your life: live TV. With a subscription to Vidgo, though, you can enjoy live TV again without paying a fortune.

Vidgo comes in two basic price tiers: Vidgo Core ($45 a month) and Vidgo Plus ($55 a month). Vidgo Core is the less expensive option, and it gives you over 40 channels live, just like cable. This includes all the ESPN and Fox networks, plus everything from the Disney Channel to MTV and Vice. For a slightly higher price, you can upgrade to Vidgo Plus, which has about 20 additional channels. There are also two Spanish language options, Vidgo Latino and Vidgo Latino Mas.

With Vidgo Social TV, which is included in the standard Vidgo package, you can join Watch Parties and view your favorite shows, movies, and live sports together with fellow fans. Vidgo also has you covered with all the local affiliates for ABC and Fox networks, with more local networks being added whenever possible.

You can use Vidgo on up to three devices simultaneously on one account, and it’s compatible with most standard devices, including those running iOS, Android, Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, Android TV, web browsers, and Google Chromecast.

To get started, just head over to the Vidgo site and take a closer look at what the service has to offer.
