You can watch TNT without cable on eight different streaming services.
Hulu + Live TV, Sling TV, DIRECTV STREAM, Spectrum TV app, and YouTube TV all carry TNT as a live TV channel. So you can watch live sports on TV along with popular TNT dramas.
Amazon Prime, Hulu and HBO Max carry some popular TNT shows on-demand such as “Animal Kingdom” and “The Alienist.” These streaming services work on Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Apple TV, Google Chromecast with Google TV and other Android TV devices.
You have two other ways to watch TNT through the TNT app, and by watching through the TNT website.
Watch TNT live without cable TV
Streaming TNT without a cable subscription is pretty easy these days.
It’s just a matter of choosing which live TV streaming service is the right fit.
If you’re an NBA fan, you can add NBA TV for game coverage through the Sports Extra bundle for another $11 per month. That still makes Sling TV the lowest-priced option.
Sling TV works on just about every streaming device and a number of Smart TVs.
My runner-up pick is DIRECTV STREAM because you’re getting many staples from a Comcast or Spectrum subscription, and a lot of other neat features you don’t have with cable.
A subscription costs $74.99 per month. You’ll get more than 75 live TV channels, unlimited Cloud DVR, You can get $10 off for the first three months of service, and a 5-day free trial with no obligations.
If either live TV streaming service isn’t for you, no worries.
This guide breaks down all of your options for live streaming TNT with Roku, Amazon Fire TV Stick (or Cube), Apple TV, Android TV, game consoles, iPhones (with current iOS) and Android smartphones.
Nobody wants to be missing their favorite live sports, including NBA games. The good news is you don’t have to. There are more ways to stream TNT than ever before, and your options are cheaper than paying Comcast, Spectrum or some other cable provider.
I will also show you what’s available on the TNT app, and the TNT website.
