CenturyLink Just Launched Their Live TV Streaming Service


After  months of rumors CenturyLink today announced their live TV streaming service. CenturyLink Stream is a new service from CenturyLink that delivers instant access to live and on-demand sports, news and entertainment programming, including Latino and local channels. It’s available today on Roku players and Roku TVs in the U.S. The service will also work on phones and tablets along with Laptops and PCs. You can even buy a CenturyLink branded Android TV player that is special built for the service.

CenturyLink Stream offers two base packages – both include  Cloud DVR for recording programs.

▪     The Ultimate package, priced at $45/month, features more than 45 channels, including local ABC NBC, Telemundo, UniMás s, and Univision stations in select marketsand national  channels, including A&E, CNBC, Discovery Channel, Disney Channel, ESPN, Food Network, HGTV, HISTORY, MSNBC and USA. New and existing CenturyLink High-Speed Internet (HSI) customers are eligible to receive a $5 monthly discount off the $45 Ultimate package price.

▪     The Latino package, priced at $15/month, features 27 Spanish-speaking channels, including Azteca, BeIn Sports, Discovery en Espanol, ViendoMovies and Univision Networks – Univision Deportes Network, Galavision, Univision, UniMás and others.

The only downside seems to be the lack off any Fox channels. Currently their site shows no FX, FS1, FOX, and more.

CenturyLink Stream also offers a wide range of add-on genre packages including Kids & Family, Lifestyle, Movies, News & Information, Sports and Variety. Latino genre packages include Deportes and Peliculas with movies from México, Latin America and Hollywood. Subscribers can also rent movies from a large variety of on-demand options and add a la carte premium channels like SHOWTIME®.

After a 7-day free trial, CenturyLink Stream packages start at $15/month with add-on options as low as $5/month. These add-ons include Sports Extra, Disney Family Moviees, Kids & Family, News & Info, and more.

    Overpriced. You have to love the cable executives shortsightedness.

  • Daniel Darnell

    It’s too expensive and still lacks some key channels. Very unimpressed by this.

  • Jason Becker

    Is this a joke by them? No AMC, TNT, TBS etc and zero Fox stuff yet it starts at $45? PS Vues base package is far better deal. Big fail CenturyLink….

    • Deon Hamner

      epic

  • Craig

    Yeah $45 is a bit much for this. Doesn’t have Viacom, Tuner or Fox (News), but least it has OAN.

    Also? I’m glad they’re rolling out a new Android TV box for the service named “CenturyLink Player” made by LG for $89.00. That’s good. More boxes means more Android TV adoption and more Android TV apps being developed. It’s good to see these companies adopting and pushing the platform, between this and Sling’s AirTV Player.

      Yes, I would like to start seeing these skinny bundle providers start offering their own boxes. I’m probably in the minority, but I would pay $89 for a box that is designed specifically for the service with a specific remote.

    • Duder12

      Dish just rolled out an Android TV player in hotel chains as well. Its different than the AirTV.

      Some rumor going around that DirecTV is launching an Android TV box too!

      • Craig

        DirecTV is potentially launching an Android TV box? Wow! Interesting… Thanks Duder12

  • Deon Hamner

    no thanks…

  • mnsportsgeek

    This is a garbage deal.

  • Joe in Virginia

    This might be the worst skinny bundle to date.

  • David Batten

    Based on what I see, this seems to be over priced by $30 per month. Someone at CenturyLink should to be fired.

  • Chuck Hughes

    Signed up for the free trail and canceled after one hour. This is crap

  • Nathan John Ganiere

    only thing good about this service is the app is decent, DVR is well done, and there not any annoying commercial break splash screens on the Disney, ESPN, channels probably MSNBC also don’t watch much of that channel, otherwise not enough bang for your buck…………

    • Nathan John Ganiere

      would of possibly been a tad more bang for your buck than Orange + Blue on Sling, had they added TNT, TBS, Fox, FX, Nat Geo, Fox Sports, FS1, FS2, but they failed to do that…….

  • Raymond Chojnacki

    Have to agree. Probably the worse Ultimate package available. As a CL user I was looking forward to what they would be offering. What a disappointment.

  • Azi

    Nice format but the channels included are garbage. Directv now has better channels + disconnected HBO

  • Aaron McBroom

    50 hours of DVR…. Thank God for the free market! They will be the ones to ‘pay’ for their stupidity, not me.
