5 Best Services to Get a Universal Kids Free Trial

You can watch Universal Kids with a free trial on Fubo TV, YouTube TV, DirecTV Stream Ultimate, Fubo TV Elite or DirecTV Stream Premier.

It may not have the same recall as Disney and Nickelodeon, but thanks to parent company NBC, Universal Kids (formerly Sprout) gets to offer its young audiences a packed and competitive lineup of content that features everything from reality and competitive shows to educational cartoons. The channel dedicates its daytime lineup to preschoolers, then evening and primetime lineups for teens. 

Notable shows you may have heard of include Top Chef Junior, American Ninja Warrior Junior, Beat the Clock, Dot, Noddy, Toyland Detective, and Masha and the Bear. 

If that sounds interesting to you, you'll be glad to know that you can watch your favorite Universal Kids shows for free when you use a free trial from either Fubo TV, Hulu with Live TV, or YouTube TV. Below is a full list of the streaming services you can try for free to watch the channel.

If you enjoy using the DVR option, Youtube TV is arguably the best option in the market for you: it gives you unlimited DVR storage on the Cloud (accessible from any of your devices), and it saves each of your recordings for 9 months. Also, you can share Youtube TV with up to six accounts, so if you have a big family, this is a much better option than getting a bunch of cheaper Live TV subscriptions. Youtube TV allows up to three accounts of the six to watch at the same time.

The most cable-like live TV package to date, DirecTV Stream Premier carries every possible channel you can think of. The sports department has ESPN and Fox Sports, to name a few, plus all the NFL, NBA, NHL, and MLB specialty channels. Meanwhile, the entertainment department has premium networks like HBO, Starz, Cinemax, and Showtime. It even has RSNs and local channels, all of which total more than 150 channels, so if you want your subscription to cover multiple bases, this is as comprehensive as it gets. All this comes to a hefty $160/month, which seems like a lot for a cord-cutting service, but with features like unlimited screens and DVR, it's worth considering if you have the budget to spare.
