Promising, Innovative Streamer but Buggy
Final Verdict

Vidgo has a lot of promise as a skinny bundle for people who get free HDTV through an antenna. It has a good selection of channels and decent streaming quality. The ability to create watch parties for live TV or YouTube is a unique feature that sets Vidgo apart from the traditional streaming service. Add to that Vidgo’s efforts to bring streaming TV to immigrants and others dependent on the cash economy and you get a streaming service everyone should pay attention to.

Unfortunately, rising prices make Vidgo’s offering suffer in comparison to established rivals like Sling TV and YouTube TV.

If you want a sneak peek at the future of social live TV, then give Vidgo a try. If you want a hassle-free experience, then wait.
