With the yearly CMT Country Music awards and buzzworthy shows, people want to know how they can watch CMT. Well, you don’t need cable to watch CMT. You can stream CMT through the following streaming services: Philo, Hulu, Sling TV, fuboTV, YouTube TV, Vidgo, and DIRECTV STREAM. These streaming services allow you to watch CMT on streaming devices, smart devices, and online, just as if you had cable.
Want A Quick Answer: Philo is the cheapest way to stream CMT but lacks local channels, sports, and news. DIRECTV STREAM, Hulu Live TV, FuboTV, and YouTube TV are closer to what one would expect from a cable TV package but are more than double the price of Philo. Vidgo and Sling also carry CMT and provide a value point between services like Philo and DIRECTV STREAM.
NEW: Many popular CMT shows are now available on demand on Paramount+ .
