Over the past several years, the sports-centric service fuboTV has developed into a full-featured cable replacement option. Originally a sports-only service, fuboTV recently added not only Univision but a full range of other popular channels that broaden its appeal. Few other streaming services offer as many Spanish language channels as fuboTV.

fuboTV Pricing and Packages

The main package costs $55/month and comes with roughly 90 channels. Half of those are sports channels. Several add-ons give you the ability add more channels to your entertainment menu. You don’t need to buy any of these if all you want is Univision, since it’s included in the core channel lineup. However, you might want to look into the $8/month Latino Plus pack.

Over-the-Air Broadcasts

There are sixty-one cities in the United States and Puerto Rico where you can get Univision with a good, old-fashioned TV antenna. These tend to be the largest American cities or small and mid-sized cities with large Spanish-speaking populations. You can check this FCC website to see which TV stations broadcast near you.

Getting Univision where it’s available over-the-air is as simple as connecting an antenna to your TV, but that only gets it onto your TV. An inexpensive add-on will let you stream that broadcast to any device on your home network.

HDHomeRun

SiliconDust’s HDHomeRun is a set-top box that connects to your TV antenna and your home network. It converts the analog TV signal into a video stream that most digital devices can pick up.

Prices start at $99 for a two-tuner HDHomeRun Connect Duo and reach $149 for a four-tuner HDHomeRun Connect Quatro.

A $35 annual subscription activates SiliconDust’s DVR service. It expands the programming guide’s window from a single day to fourteen days. Your family can record as many programs as they want. The only limit is the size of the hard drives you use.

SiliconDust has developed a wide range of apps that will play the live stream.

  • Living room devices: Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and Android TV.
  • Smart TVs and Blu-ray players: Sony TVs with Android TV.
  • Mobile devices and tablets: Android, iOS and Windows Phone.
  • Game consoles: Xbox One
  • Desktop browsers: macOS and Windows 10.

DLNA is a more technical option that you can use to view the streams on some TVs, the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4.

Tablo

Tablo markets itself as “a DVR for cord-cutters”. It makes set-top boxes in 2-tuner and 4-tuner configurations. With an attached hard drive or network storage, you can record programming for later viewing.

The Tablo 2-Tuner OTA DVR costs $219 while the Tablo 4-Tuner OTA DVR costs $299. Tablo’s products have Ethernet and dual-band WiFi to send those high-definition streams across your home network. Up to six devices at a time can access the Tablo.

A $49.99 annual subscription unlocks the fourteen-day programming guide and more flexible search tools. It also lets you stream to your devices when away from home.

  • Living room devices: Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Chromecast and Roku.
  • Smart TVs and Blu-ray players: LG (based on WebOS) or devices running the Roku or Android TV platforms.
  • Mobile devices and tablets: Android and iOS.
  • Game consoles: Xbox One
  • Desktop browsers: Chrome and Safari.

Channel Master Stream+

Channel Master is an American maker of HDTV antennas that makes its own set-top box. Unlike the Tablo or HDHomeRun, the Stream+ is based on the official Android TV platform. That lets you run Android-powered streaming apps from Netflix, Hulu and more.

Stream+ also includes the free Google Live Channels DVR, which doesn’t require a subscription to use. Stream+ has an introductory price of $99 and will ship in April 2018.

The only downside to the Stream+ is that it will not stream content to your devices over your home network. It only works with your television.

The Univision Apps

Univision has a large number of apps that let you watch its content. Some clips and episodes are available for anyone to watch. Most of its on-demand content and live streams, however, are locked. Unlocking it requires either login credentials from a TV service provider or a direct subscription with Univision.

Univision Now

Univision Now is Univision’s direct subscription service. It lets you watch on-demand content, as well as live streams of Univision and UniMás. The app will even stream local Univision stations, but only in certain markets.

People living in Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami and New York can watch their local Univision affiliate via Univision Now. Unfortunately, people living in the other fifty-five markets with local Univision stations are out of luck.

Additionally, the app will geo-lock your local streams. The geo-lock will prevent you from watching the local Univision station when you’re away from home. New Yorkers who visit Miami, for example, will see the Miami station in their app.

Univision Now won’t let you record programs, but you do get a three-day rewind service. It also lets you and your family stream to three devices at a time.

Univision Now has a monthly cost of $7.99. Or, you can opt for the $86.99 annual subscription. Just keep in mind that subscribing doesn’t remove ads in live feeds and on-demand videos.

Univision Now is available on the following platforms:

  • Living room devices: AirPlay and Roku.
  • Smart TVs and Blu-ray players: None.
  • Mobile devices and tablets: Android and iOS.
  • Game consoles: None.
  • Desktop browsers: Most modern browsers.

Univision’s TV Everywhere apps

Univision has two other apps that let you watch live TV content for no extra cost via TV Everywhere:

  • Univision: The national live stream and on-demand content from the main Univision channel.
  • Univision Deportes: live broadcasts of soccer and other sports from the Univision Deportes sports network.

There is, of course, one catch. You must have a TV provider that Univision recognizes. For the most part, that means a cable or satellite subscription. Univision does not recognize most streaming services.

The only exception is fuboTV. Your fuboTV credentials will unlock the premium content.

Device support for these apps is, unfortunately, pretty limited:

  • Living room devices: None.
  • Smart TVs and Blu-ray players: None.
  • Mobile devices and tablets: Android and iOS.
  • Game consoles: None.
  • Desktop browsers: None.

What people think of the Univision apps

You could call the response to Univision’s apps mixed. Univision Now gets 4.0 stars on Google Play, but only 2.6 stars on the App Store. The Univision app earns 4.1 on Google Play, but only 3.2 stars from iPhone owners. Univision Deportes? 4.2 from Android users and 3.1 stars on Apple’s App Store.

The iOS versions of Univision’s apps seem to have stability issues. Apple and Android owners alike complain about ads.

Which Option is Best?

There’s no perfect answer to this question. It all depends on your priorities and your situation. Here are some suggestions:

Best overall: fuboTV

If you’re a sports fan, fuboTV is a great alternative to cable. It offers a good mix of news, entertainment and lifestyle channels. fuboTV also offers an industry-leading lineup of sports channels.

The subscription price is reasonable for a streaming service – and a great deal cheaper compared to a typical cable bill.

What sets fuboTV apart is that your login credentials let you watch the on-demand and live streams via Univision apps – something the other streaming services can’t do.

Best for on-demand videos: Univision Now

Since Univision left Hulu and only has a few options on Netflix, your best bet for getting Univision programming on-demand is to subscribe to Univision Now. The extra $8 is a small price for all the unique content Univision Now delivers.

Best for local Univision stations: An HDTV antenna

Nothing beats free. Connecting an antenna to your TV is the best way to get your local Univision station. A Tablo or HDHomeRun set-top box will let you stream your local Univision channel to most devices on your home network.

Of course, this only applies if you live in one of the sixty-one markets that has a local Univision station.
