IPTV services have taken over the internet in the past few years. One of the most popular IPTV providers is USTV GO which allows the users to watch 80+ TV channels for free. These IPTV websites and APKs are seen as a possible alternative for expensive cable TV.
Most people are switching over to IPTV – free or premium because they get the media player and an app all-in-one without having to pay anything. Thus, such streaming services eliminate the need for setting up equipment and spending nearly hundreds of dollars each month for channels they don’t want to watch.
Unlike other free movie streaming sites, IPTV websites such as USTV GO provides you live access to the content. So, if you want to watch shows such as ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’, you can tune in on NBC using the TV schedule provided on the website and watch it in real-time while it’s being broadcast on television.
What is USTV GO?
USTV GO is one of the most beloved free IPTV websites which allows you to stream live channels for free. All you need to access this website is a stable internet connection and a VPN. (VPN is required to protect your information and data from authorities and hackers). You can even stream without a VPN but your data might be at risk and you might end up in trouble. Thus, you should always use a VPN when engaging in a free live streaming experience.
Why should you stream on USTV GO?
Live TV & real-time streaming experience
The reason why USTV GO is seen as a cord-cutting alternative is because of its live TV service. You can watch live shows from over 80+ channels while they are airing. There’s no delayed access or episodes being uploaded a day later as is the case with many streaming services that telecast streaming content. With USTV GO you don’t have to wait till the next day. You can stream and watch the content with the rest of the world.
The most defining aspect of USTV GO is the one-click feature. You don’t need to battle ads and click your way through the right content. All you have to do is click on a channel and it will start playing the channel without any interruption. Thus, as soon as you visit the homepage, you’re just one click away from live-action which makes the whole experience quite hassle-free.
Zero nagging issues
While most IPTV websites are money-making machines via ads, USTV GO begs to differ. I’ve streamed live TV more than a dozen times but I haven’t faced any nibbling issues while watching the stream. There are absolutely no discrepancies when you visit the website or when you’re watching live TV. No annoying pop-ups or native ads. And that can be accredited to one feature:
It’s not that there’s no ad on USTV GO. It does have ads but all of them are pretty well-managed. They don’t hinder the browsing experience or drive you away from the website. The homepage is absolutely ad-free and the inner-page has ads in the widget form on the right. My favorite ad is the native blog ad under the streaming section which complements the schedule guide for some reason. None of it – forceful or click mongering.
When you’re on USTV GO, you have the schedule for two days right under the stream. So, if you’re streaming on Monday, you’ll get the schedule for Tuesday as well which allows you to make plans accordingly. Now I know it might not sound like a big deal to you but at times when we’re caught up, features like these make sure that we don’t miss out on the most awaited premiere.
Another aspect I like a lot is that you don’t have to google or check a particular channel’s schedule on their website, you get it served on your plate for free, which makes streaming and scheduling even better.
How to access USTV GO?
Accessing USTV GO is not that difficult. If you type in ‘free US channel stream’, USTV GO is the first option you’ll get in the search engine. But before you do that, do not forget to use a VPN. Once you have that, then you can access the website via the long-tail keyword mentioned above.
Clean and simple are the two words I’d use to define USTV GO’s website. The homepage is really subtle with a grey background, red accents, and black text. It’s just plain and straightforward which is very much the opposite of what goes on most IPTV ad-laden websites. Visually it feels like a schedule network and upon clicking the text, you get access to the content. Sure, there’s not much graphical design and framework in it but it does a great job of being user-friendly.
As soon as you visit the homepage, you’ll find the categories menu with headings such as ‘Home’, ‘Entertainment’, ‘News’, ‘Sports’, ‘Kids’, ‘Contact Us’, ‘Legal’, ‘TV Guide’, ‘VPN’ and ‘FQA’. Most of these categories have a unique page that works great for segregating the channels as per your needs. Thus, if you want to watch the news, you will find dedicated channels such as ‘Fox’, ‘CNBC’ and ‘MSNBC’. Similarly, you can find live content as per your taste using the categories menu.
Homepage with channel listing
Forget having to scroll through your TV or pressing your remote repeatedly to find the channel. With USTV GO, you have the channels listed twice on the homepage itself. You can access them via the channel thumbnail on the left which has 10-12 channels on each page or you can access channels via the complete list on the right which is arranged in alphabetical order. It’s quite simple.
User-friendly Menu Layout
If the alphabetical arrangement of channels wasn’t enough, you also get a search bar wherein so you can search for a channel directly. I love the smoothness of this entire website. Certainly, not something you’d expect with a free IPTV website. Just the functionality factor in itself is worth checking out.
There’s no dearth of content on USTV GO. You have access to more than 80 channels which include:
News Channels: MSNBC, Fox, CNN, ABC, and NBC to name a few.
Entertainment channels: Comedy Central, Destination America, FX, TBS, MTV, OWN, T&T & USA Network
Premium channels: HBO, Starz, Telemundo, NFL Network, FXX and Bravo
Sports channels: ESPN, ESPN2, NFL Network, NBA TV and WWE Network
Apart from these four categories, there are channels for kids such as Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. In addition, you also get to watch documentaries and features on Discovery, Animal Planet, Travel, and TLC to name a few. The most surprising part is the availability of premium channels such as HBO, Starz, and Bravo which individually cost around $4.99/per month when made officially available by the owners of those networks via premium services.
Streaming your favorite shows live was never this easy. Imagine, you can watch almost any late-night show, premium NBA and NFL coverage, HBO and STARZ content without having to pay a single dollar. And it’s not just a proposition but an actual offering which makes USTV GO my go-to-service for free-content consumption.
If you thought content and the user-interface was the only positive thing about it, I’d suggest you rethink that. Desktop and mobile streaming experiences are as good as any premium service. There’s no advertisement and on top of that, you can stream the website via any platform. It supports all the devices such as phones, computers, and tablets along with Roku. Don’t have Roku? Not a problem, because USTV GO is compatible with Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast and Kodi box as well.
No discrepancies. Just pure delight. There are minimal ads with no need for an additional player. You just need to click once and the channel is live. Boom.
If you’ve read my previous reviews, you’d already know that I don’t like to stream free online movies on the phone because of ads and mistimed clicks. However, that’s not the case with USTV GO as its mobile website is optimized and is as good as the desktop one. I love streaming the website via my Pixel 2.
Suggestions I have for USTV GO
I don’t even know how can I suggest them to do a one up when they are already surpassing my expectations. The only point that comes to my mind is that they can add more channels, that’s all.
If you want to watch live TV with over 80+ channels without having to pay a single dollar, USTV GO is the website you should definitely check out. Yes, I know there are plenty of IPTV websites out there but very few can match the standards set by USTV GO.
