The most difficult part of cutting the cord is two-fold. First, there is the worry of losing all of your favorite shows and movies. Second, is the loss of the easy ability to channel surf. If you’re like me, you end up surfing through Netflix, Hulu, or other streaming services without making a decision because there is so much to watch. Sometimes you just want to have that cable-style lineup that allows you to pick from networks, genres, and other filters. The good news is that SelectTV has the ability to allow you to channel surf and with the amount of content they are offering, it’s highly unlikely that you’d miss your cable subscription.
SelectTV may be a service that you’ve never heard of, and that could be because it’s a newer offshoot of the aggregator, FreeCast. In this SelectTV review, we’ll look at cost, special features, and available content so you can determine if SelectTV is right for you!
What is SelectTV?
If you’re asking the question, “What is SelectTV,” you’re not alone. The service is relatively new having been created from the web-content aggregator FreeCast. According to SelectTV, they collect and organize movies and TV shows from a variety of streaming sources and put it all in one place, so that you don’t have to go hunting for it. Some of the content that is found on SelectTV has to be watched on other websites as not all of it is allowed to be embedded into the SelectTV website.
Perhaps the best part of SelectTV comes down to ease of use. Thanks to the organization offered by SelectTV, content is easy to find. Content filters include genre, rating, year, network, recently added, and popularity. You can also choose between finding only free movies and shows or adding in premium services like Hulu, Sling TV, and Netflix.
Basically you’re getting convenience from SelectTV. Rather than having to hunt down everything you can want to watch, it’s placed in a guide for you to find and watch in one place. SelectTV boasts that they offer over 300,000 TV shows, 200,000 movies, and 5,000 live channels that offer sporting events and other television. This does not include viral videos, pay-per-view, games, and video-on-demand options, which are also available. Finally, they offer more than 50,000 radio stations, as well. All in one place. In a neat and tidy guide for your perusal.
You can search through Channels, Events, Games, Music, and On-Demand. From there, you get more categories and other options. If you go to Channels, for example, you’ll find various channel options for news and other things. Going to On-Demand leads to suggestions for Primetime shows, Movies, and other options.
The search function also offers a handy feature in that if something you search for is available somewhere online, but not through SelectTV, it will tell you where you can find it. If watching on your computer isn’t something you want to do, SelectTV is probably not the right option for you. There isn’t a Roku channel, so that’s out. Unless you plan to hook your computer to your TV, your option for TV watching is Chromecast. On top of this, there aren’t really mobile options to watching, at least not yet.
SelectTV Pricing: How Much Does SelectTV Cost?
For many people, what it’s going to come down to is how much does SelectTV cost. The fact is, it’s not really expensive at all. Right now, SelectTV is available for $3 a month or just $24 for a full year subscription.
SelectTV Review Conclusion
It’s important to keep in mind, that with SelectTV you’re paying for convenience. They are just bringing together all of the content that’s available on the Internet. It’s all things that you can find on your own. This makes the process faster for you because you don’t need to go looking for all the things you want to watch. It’s just available to you at a few clicks of a button. So, the question you need to ask yourself is whether or not that’s worth paying for in your situation.
