When it comes to streaming live TV, Live Net TV seems to be the best thing since sliced bread. But it does have its shortcomings, it can, every now and then, malfunction as any other service. So it’s a good idea to have a few alternatives at hand just in case. You don’t need to miss your favorite shows if Live Net TV isn’t working on Firestick or Android TV boxes.

This article will highlight a few alternatives for live TV streaming. It is worth mentioning that some of the apps listed here may be restricted in some regions, but most of them are from verified developers and are unrestricted. Before downloading it is advisable to check whether or not the app you chose is authorized in your country.

Strix TV

Strix TV is an excellent alternative. It has a wide range of available content, it doesn’t require you to sign-in, it is easy enough for beginners to maneuver and it is free, what else can you ask for? From 60p to 1080p, you can choose the video quality that best suits you. You can find Strix TV on the Amazon app store.

Xumo

Xumo is another great option. It gives you a way to stream live and on-demand TV shows without having to worry about the issue of monthly subscriptions. It offers more than 200 live channels without the need of logging in before you start streaming.

Xumo is available to download at Google play store and Apple app store, it is legal in all regions and it comes pre-installed as an option in several smart TV brands, including Panasonic, Hisense, Philip’s and LG. If you don’t have a smart TV, to access Xumo you will need an external streaming device like Roku, Android TV  or Amazon Fire TV. 

Xumo does contain ads, but they are not too intrusive so, all in all, it is a good alternative to Live Net TV.

Airy TV

Airy TV is a very popular substitute for Live Net TV and it is easily available. It is accessible at Amazon app store, Google play store, Apple app store and Live TV. It has a wide selection of content for you to choose from, it offers more than 100 live channels that have everything from sports to animes and movies. All the content offered on Airy TV is free and there is no need for credit card or sign up.

Crackle

Crackle - Free, legitimate and with original content

Crackle is another good replacement for Live Net TV. It is free to use and it comes with a wide selection of content for you to choose from, it has something for everyone.

One of the few downsides to Crackle is that it is not available in some regions. But that can be easily solved by installing a reliable VPN ( ExpressVPN is the best option around), which will give you access to content that would not otherwise be accessible in your region, by simply choosing an IP from a country where the app is available . Another minor downside is that you may get interrupted here and there by an ad or commercial. Crackle can be accessed on multiple devices without any hassle, it has good video quality and the overall experience is very good.

Movies on Crackle are organized in a user-friendly manner that makes it easy to quickly locate anything you are searching for. The app will send notifications on movies soon to be available on the platform. Beyond that, Crackle also has its own original content you won’t find anywhere else.

Pluto TV

Pluto TV - Largest user base for Free live TV

Pluto is also another good option. It offers more than 250 channels to choose from, and  it’s completely free. It has thousands of movies and the content includes everything from sports to documentaries. Amongst  the best channels Pluto TV has to offer we can find Star Trek, CBS News and Classic Doctor Who. On this app you also don’t need to create an account to access the streaming content.

The downside is that it contains a lot of ads, so you will be constantly interrupted as you watch your shows.

Ola TV

This live streaming service offers a huge selection of content that includes thousands of cable TV channels that are both local and international, it offers content that ranges from kids’ shows to sports. 

Ola TV is completely free, it’s easy for beginners to use and it allows content to be downloaded so you can watch it later. It has a few downsides though, it only works with two media players: Ludio Player and Kshaw, it contains a lot of ads and the video quality is definitely not the best on the market.
