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.)

Sesame Street Go:

  • 200 full episodes
  • Clips
  • Games

Hulu Plus: (Note: these episodes are commercial free)

  • 60 full episodes
  • Clips
  • Many other kids’ shows


  • 24 full episodes
  • Shorter special episodes like “Learn Along With Sesame”

Amazon Prime Instant:

  • 60 full episodes
  • Shorter special episodes like “Learn Along With Sesame”


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.

    Even with the update above I think you’ve missed the point. Kids are about accessibility and repetition – not volume. My son has never once watched the long form episodes. He watches Elmo’s World, Elmo the Musical, Furchester Hotel etc … some of these can be tracked on YouTube, but I don’t really have time for that when you have an upset child. This service is great for that and the iOS app is great and both air plays and chrome casts.

      Thanks for the great feedback! I have a two year old daughter and fully understand what you mean by repetition. Now many of the shorter episodes like Elmo’s World etc are on Hulu and Netflix. I would have to go back and compare the full numbers on who has more but the content is out there on other services. In the end do what is right for you. If you feel you get a benefit from Sesame Street GO do it. We just wanted to take a look at all the different ways to get Sesame Street.
