Review: Is Sesame Street Go Worth $3.99?

Update: There is now 200 full episodes on the Sesame Street Go app. Also Sesame Street asked us to make sure to point out that Sesame Street Go has a iOS and Android app now available for download.

Sesame Street Go is a standalone service that for $3.99 a month will give you access to “Sesame Street” clips, full episodes, and games. While it is a good service with quality streams and easy navigation, the question is with “Sesame Street” content available on Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Instant, why subscribe to Sesame Street Go?

Let’s take a quick look at what is available for free with your subscription to each service. (Please note: these numbers are current as of June 10, 2015. The exact numbers will change over time.)

Conclusion

While Sesame Street Go does have some free games, you can get similar games for free on iOS, Android, and your favorite streaming box. Now that “Sesame Street” is on most streaming services, there really is no reason to pay $4 a month when for a few extra dollars you could get other great children’s shows with other streaming services not just Sesame Street shows.
