Today we’re covering how to watch one of the least biased news sources on cable. While MSNBC, Fox News, and CNN tend to skew their news to capture different audiences, Newsy tends to keep to the political center (if a little left). This guide will cover the best ways to watch Newsy without cable TV and a little about what Newsy aims to do in the world of cable news.
What is Newsy
Newsy was founded in 2008 as a way to watch the news on mobile and the web. While Newsy still has a web presence, it has become a 24-hour live news channel available on cable since the Scripps network was acquired in 2014. Newsy offers live news shows like:
- Morning Rush
- The Briefing
- Today’s Headlines
- Newsy Reports
- Newsy Tonight
While Newsy offers an app on various devices, you will only find recorded clips and updates. To watch Newsy’s live feed, you will need to use one of the services listed below.
How To Watch Newsy without Cable
Watch Newsy on Sling TV
Newsy is available on both of Sling’s basic channel packages (Blue and Orange) at $40 per month each. Sling TV also offers a 3-day free trial so that you can try either plan. All Sling TV Channel options work on Windows and Mac PCs and laptops, Android and iOS devices, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Nexus player, Xbox One, and 4th Generation Apple TV.
For more information on the service, please check out our Sling TV review.
Newsy is on YouTube TV
Newsy is a part of YouTube TV’s channel lineup for $72.99 per month. YouTube TV does include a DVR with limitless storage space for recording shows and news if you like. Plus, you can watch your library of recorded shows anywhere! YouTube TV supports Android, iOS, Apple TV, Fire TV, Chromecast, and more. The YouTube TV app has also returned to Roku devices after settling a dispute between the two companies. Check our review of YouTube TV for more information.
Newsy is on fuboTV
Finally, Newsy is available through fuboTV’s “fuboTV Extra” channel add-on package for an additional $6 per month. However, that gets quite expensive, considering fuboTV’s Pro Plan already costs $65 per month. That plan also includes a cloud DVR. The service offers a 1-week free trial. Try it out to see if it will work for you. For more information, check out my FuboTV review.
Newsy on Pluto TV
While much of Pluto TV is cultivated selections from a variety of channels, it carries a live channel stream of Newsy, airing the same shows as the channel itself within its platform. Pluto TV is a free streaming service that carries more than 225 channels. Most of these channels are original channels created by Pluto with a selection of programming licensed from numerous networks and studios. Read our Pluto TV review for more.
