Vidgo is an American streaming television service that offers over 100 channels of English- and Spanish-language sports, news and general entertainment content. In addition to its live television packages, Vidgo offers a cloud-based digital video recorder and thousands of hours of on-demand programming.

Vidgo launched in 2018[1] as a streaming service focused on professional sports, primarily soccer,[2] to cord cutters. Over time, the service expanded to include agreements with major television content providers, including A+E Networks, the Walt Disney Company, Fox Corporation, Paramount Global, Sony Pictures Television and the Discovery side of the Warner Bros. Discovery portfolio of channels. Their number of subscribers was estimated to be between 25,000 and 100,000 as of 2021.[3]

In 2022, the company hired a new executive leadership team[4][5] and revamped its mission to provide entertainment, news and sports of interest[6] to the heartland of the United States.[7] It also relaunched its streaming app with a new color palette, logo and other interface improvements.[8]

In April 2023, Vidgo quietly raised the prices of two English-language packages.[9] The price puts Vidgo on the same footing as YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV and Fubo TV.
