With buzzworthy shows like Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders: Making the Team, people want to know how they can watch CMT without cable. All you need is one of the streaming services described below. They all carry the same CMT channel that airs on cable, but you watch using your internet connection.
Streaming Services with CMT
Philo is The Best Way To Watch Live CMT
Philo is the top option for watching CMT Live online. Philo provides CMT and 60+ other channels for $25/month. You can check out a free trial and see if the service will meet your needs. Philo also includes a cloud DVR for you to record shows to watch later.
With online access to CMT streaming, you will never miss shows like “CMT Crossroads,” “Party Down South,” “Racing Wives,” or the “CMT Hot 20 Countdown“.
Watch CMT on Hulu
Personally, use Hulu to watch live CMT online. Previously Hulu was known for its vast on-demand streaming library. However, they also offer Hulu Live TV service, which includes live CMT Streaming and most top channels typically found on cable. Hulu Live TV starts at $64.99 after a 7-day free trial and includes the following features:
- Over 60 live Channels including CMT
- The basic package comes with 50 hours of cloud DVR storage. (Upgrades available)
- Watch on 2 screens at once. (Upgrades available)

CMT on Sling TV
CMT is not in Sling’s base packages. However, you can get CMT through the Orange or the Blue package By adding the “Comedy Extra” add-on package for an additional $6 per month on top of $35 for one of Sling’s base packages.
Sling TV provides a live stream of CMT so you can watch what would be airing on CMT, just as if you had cable. A Cloud DVR program is included.
Sling TV is available on Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, and more, so it’s not a problem to enjoy it on a TV, tablet, computer, or other smart devices. There are more channels than I’ve mentioned available on Sling TV than what I’ve discussed here.

Watch CMT for Free
Some of the streaming services that carry CMT offer a free trial. You can take advantage of those and watch free CMT for almost a month or longer if you use different email addresses. Let’s look at the free trials available.
- Philo – offers a 7-day free trial
- Hulu Live TV – Offers a 1-week Free Trial
- FuboTV – offers a 1-week free trial.
- YouTube TV – offers a 1-week free trial
As long as you cancel before the free trial expires, you won’t be charged. You can cycle the free trials to get nearly a month of CMT free. If you get creative with email addresses and payment methods, you could watch free CMT even longer. Doing this would also let you test out the various live TV streaming services to see which one you like the best.
