Stream new episodes of Below Deck and The Real Housewives live

If you’re looking for a way to watch the latest season of Below Deck or The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City on Bravo, then you’re in the right place. 

This guide will show you how to get Bravo, and watch your favorite shows either live or on-demand without a cable subscription.

The cheapest way to watch Bravo either on TV or online is through Sling TV, a live TV service that works with Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV Stick and Roku. 

Make sure you sign up for the Sling Blue bundle because it’s the only one that carries Bravo. The Blue bundle has 47 live TV channels that are streamed online for $30 per month. A subscription includes 10 hours of Cloud DVR for recordings. You can stream on up to three devices at once.

Discovery ID, HGTV, AMC, BET, TNT, Lifetime, TLC and History are part of the channel lineup.

Sling TV has a free 3-day trial so you can see whether it’s a good fit for you.

Bravo has been on Sling TV for about five years now. It was among the first live TV streaming services out there for cord cutters and people who weren’t down with cable TV. 

Now there are a number of live TV services on the market that offer cable-like channel lineups over the Internet. 

The advantages to using a live TV service is that you can watch live TV on a smartphone or tablet, and you don’t have to sign up for any kind of contract. 

Here’s a breakdown of everything you need to know about watching Bravo without cable TV or a satellite service.

Is Bravo on Hulu? 

Hulu carries Bravo programming a couple of different ways. 

Hulu’s on-demand streaming service does have some of Bravo’s back catalog of shows, but not new episodes. 

So if you’re just looking for a way to watch all 11 seasons of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, subscribing to Hulu’s on-demand streaming service is the way to go. It costs $5.99 per month, and you can try it free for a week.

You can subscribe to Hulu + Live TV to watch the latest shows on Bravo as they air. 

Hulu with Live TV has 65+ live TV channels such as CW, E!, HGTV, Lifetime and TLC for $54.99 per month. Subscribers get 50 hours of Cloud DVR to record shows. Hulu gives live TV customers unlimited access to its on-demand library. That’s the same on-demand service that people pay $5.99 per month for. So you’re basically getting two streaming services for the same price as some of Hulu’s competitors.

Even if you already pay for Hulu on-demand, you can get a free 7-day trial of the live TV service and see if it’s for you. Just be sure to cancel before the trial ends if you decide that you don’t want to subscribe. 

If you already subscribe to Hulu on-demand, it might be a good way to bundle your subscription. You can also read my guide on how to get Hulu + Live TV as part of the Disney+ bundle and save $5.99 per month.  

Hulu has apps for Roku, Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV and mobile apps for iOS and Android smartphones.
