The era of using the cable connection to watch your favorite episodes is the story of the past. Today, the live video streaming has replaced the old and traditional cable connections. There are many live streaming services that can be used to watch live videos over the internet. Netflix and Sling TV are two of the most competitive live streaming service providers that are used by the users over the globe. There are millions of subscribers of both these services worldwide.

However, both of them deliver different and unique options for the viewers. So, let’s have a descriptive comparison between the two live streaming providers.

Points of Similarity

Price: In terms of price, the budget of both the services is same. For both the monthly charges is in between %7.99 to $11.99. And this price range is also fully reasonable for watching enormous videos over the internet.

Mobile Support: In terms of mobile support, Android and iOS is supported by both of them. It means these live streaming services can easily be accessed with the help of Android and iOS based devices.

Original TV Shows: All the original shows that are showed on the cable TV are also made visible on live streaming. Netflix and Sling TV are blessed with almost all the original shows that can be viewed without any break.

HD Live Streaming: Netflix and Sling TV are not only limited to mobile devices. Instead, they both can be easily viewed on HD devices.  They both enable the Full HD streaming facility.

Points of Distinction

Premium Movies: There are many movies that are made available on demand. This feature is only available on Netflix. Sling TV doesn’t support the option of premium movies for its users, hence the user needs to satisfy with the existing shows.

Original Movies: Many people prefer using the live streaming service to watch original movies in their leisure time. But the feature of watching movies is easy. Hence it can only be viewed on Netflix without any hurdle.

4K Streaming: As earlier mentioned that both of them support the devices with display below 4K pixels. The live streaming of original episodes as well as other movies can’t be done in 4K devices using Sling TV.  So, Sling TV lacks this feature.

Content Download: When it comes to download of content, both the live streaming service providers are disabled to offer this feature. Netflix and Sling TV can’t download content on demand.

Overall Winner: From the comparative points discussed hereby, Netflix is the sure shot winner of this discussion. Where most of the traits are offered by Netflix, the Sling TV doesn’t offer much of the features. Netflix is the sure shot winner of this cooperative discussion with nearly 50 million customers worldwide.

From the points discussed above, you can easily make a choice between the best of the two. Both of them are good from different aspects, but your choice totally depends on your needs and demand.
