How to Stream TBS Live Without Cable

Watch TBS Live Stream

I’m going to show you how to live stream TBS on a Roku, Amazon Fire TV Stick and Apple TV without a cable subscription.

If you want to watch American Dad, The Misery Index, or you’re a baseball fan tuning in for the American League Division Series, then you’re in the right place.

There are a few live TV streaming services that are worth considering instead of cable TV.

But which one is the best?

Right now, Sling TV is the cheapest way to live stream TBS for MLB games or the latest season of your favorite show.

TBS is available on the Sling Orange bundle (30+ channels), or the Sling Blue bundle (45+ channels). A Sling TV subscription costs $30 per month regardless of which bundle you choose.

Subscribers get 10 hours of Cloud DVR, and an on-demand library of movies and TV shows. Sling TV has apps for just about every streaming device including Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast with Google TV and NVIDIA Shield.

You can look over the channel lineup, or get a free 3-day trial.

If Sling isn’t your thing, no worries. There are a couple of other options for cord cutters to consider.

Hulu + Live TV carries TBS and roughly 64 other channels.

A&E, ESPN, Discovery ID, HGTV and Lifetime are part of the channel lineup.

Subscribers get 50 hours of Cloud DVR and unlimited access to its on-demand library, including Hulu Originals. It’s the same on-demand library that people pay $5.99 per month for.

Is TBS on fuboTV?

On July 1, fuboTV stopped carrying TBS, TNT and 9 other channels owned by Turner Broadcasting System Inc.

A fuboTV help page suggests alternative ways to watch some programming these channels offered, but nothing related to TBS.

What’s the best way to watch TBS without cable?

Sling TV is my top pick because it’s a solid budget option at $30 per month. You can get TBS under the Sling Orange or Sling Blue plan.

The Sling Blue plan is slightly bigger with 45+ channels, including sports networks like FS1, FS2 and regional NBC sports channels. You can subscribe to both the Sling Orange and Sling Blue for $45 per month. Sling TV offers a free 3-day trial.

Hulu with Live TV brings together a live TV package and its vast on-demand library of movies and TV shows.

Hulu carries more local NBC, CBS, ABC and FOX stations than any other live streaming competitor.  There’s 50 hours of Cloud DVR included.
