Disney+ ($7.99 monthly)
The one-stop-shop for family-friendly content is Disney+. The streaming giant only includes content suitable for kids and family. This is guaranteed, as all mature content is segmented on a separate service called Hulu.
Disney+ only includes on-demand content, ranging from classic movies including The Sound of Music to hits of the ’90s like Sister Act. It also owns major intellectual properties like Star Wars, Marvel, and all Pixar movies. In terms of services, there’s none bigger or better for conservatives available right now.
You can find the Disney+ app everywhere, including on Apple TV, Roku, Amazon devices, all app stores including Xbox and Playstation.
Frndly TV ($9.99 monthly)
If you’re looking for an affordable family and faith-based streaming service, then Frndly TV is the best option available.
It includes live streaming TV and on-demand content from major cable networks. These include The Hallmark Channel, Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, Hallmark Drama, Game Show Network, UPtv, PixL, and Light TV.
You can find the Frndly TV app on Apple TV, Roku, Amazon devices, Chromecast, or watch online via web browsers. Frndly TV apps are also available on the Apple and Android stores for streaming on mobile devices.
CBS All Access/Paramount+ ($9.99 monthly)
CBS All Access includes a variety of classic TV shows like Perry Mason, I Love Lucy, and Hawaii Five-O. It also has a healthy selection of crime shows ranging from NCIS, to Blue Bloods. Additionally, the brand-new Star Trek show called Picard will be streamed on the service.
Even better is that if you’re an NFL fan on a budget, CBS All Access is essential. It’s the cheapest way to have access to a good collection of live games each week. What else could a cord-cutting conservative need?
CBS All Access is supported by Amazon devices, Apple TV, the Apple store, Android, Chromecast, PlayStation, Roku, and Xbox.

YouTube is a conservative’s dream. Whatever your opinion, you’ll find like-minded videos to stream. Having YouTube in your living room on the big screen is a game-changer. The only downside is that it can be time-consuming to find what you want to watch.
This one negative is quickly overcome, though. The more you search and follow certain content, the more accurately YouTube will curate content for you. This is how you’ll find great content like Louder with Crowder, or learn about conservative rock stars like Ben Shapiro and Jordan Peterson.
YouTube is available on everything, from console to cell phone. If you’ve got a device that can connect to the internet, you’ve already got YouTube. Add in the fact it’s free, and YouTube is one of the best streaming services for conservatives.

YouTube TV ($64.99 monthly)
If you’re looking for a less brutal cord-cutting experience, then YouTube TV is everything you like about pay TV, but streaming.
YouTube TV includes 70 channels, ranging from ABC, NBC, CBS, and AMC, to local stations in your area. Like with CBS All Access and YouTube, your own discretion is needed when seeking out content. It’s not all conservative, but YouTube TV is the best option if you want to stream Fox News.
A bigger downside to YouTube TV is that there are additional channels that can be added at more cost. For example, Showtime costs $7 more monthly. Despite cutting the cord, the price of YouTube TV doesn’t exactly cut the cost.
HBO Max ($14.99)
HBO Max has arrived for the monthly price of $15. With it is the best back catalog of content. Content includes The Wire, Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire, and Succession. On top of the best shows, the service has classic movies like Casablanca and the family-friendly movie series Harry Potter.
HBO Max’s back catalog has numerous shows and movies that fit a conservative outlook. However, the original shows announced for 2020 and beyond are very liberal-leaning. It is likely the service will require conservative viewer discretion in the future.
