Best of 2018 Awards — the best streaming services, shows and boxes of 2018

The world of cord-cutting — that is, eschewing traditional cable and satellite TV for an all-streaming scheme — moves fast. Really fast. Services add and remove channels all the time, and often without much fanfare. New hardware comes and old hardware goes.

And as consumers, it's pretty simple to switch from one service or piece of hardware to another.

But some things stand out more than others. Some services provide more flexibility and options. Some simply provideo more . Some hardware truly stands out.

This is the best of the best of 2018.
