KlowdTV: A New Way to Watch TV Online

What is KlowdTV

KlowdTV is a streaming service that allows you to watch TV using your internet connection. The service offers a variety of channels you can watch live, just as you would with cable TV. However, you pay for only the channels you want, making it much more affordable. Additionally, there is no monthly contract so you cancel the subscription any time.

The company is a startup company co-founded by Michael Grams. His dream is to change the way people purchase TV.  Instead of buying these huge bundles, he’s hoping people will be more interested in purchasing just the content you want with no commitment. As you can imagine, the big TV conglomerates are not a fan of his plan.

Grams set up his service to allow consumers to choose their content by genre’s like “Sports”, “News”, “Entertainment”, etc.  Subscribers of KlowdTV simply pay a $3.99 monthly charge to cover taxes and fees.  After that, they pay for the genres they want at a ridiculously affordable price. For instance, “News” only costs $2.99 per month.

KlowdTV Device Support

KlowdTV is available on your Mac or PC browser as the service supports Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer 9+. But, if you’re like me you want to watch either on a TV in the comfort of your own living room or on the go with a mobile device. In those cases the following devices are supported:

  • Mobile Web Browsing: Most Android devices 4.1 and higher & iOS devices (iPhone and iPad)
  • Mobile Apps: Android, iOS
  • Streaming TV: Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Sony Smart TVs, Hisense TVs, TiVos, Samsung Blu-Ray Players, and other OperaTV enabled smart devices.

Live TV Streaming With DVR

KlowdTV is one of the first services to offer live streams of TV programming with a cloud-based TV. You simply subscribe to their different storage plans, and you can record any shows you want.

They allow you to record an unlimited amount of shows simultaneous as long as you have storage space. All of your recorded shows are hosted by KlowdTV, so there is no need for you to purchase any extra equipment. Simply record the shows you want by selecting them to record in the program guide, and watch them whenever you want.

What Channels are on KlowdTV

As I said before, the big media conglomerates are not happy about Gram’s plan, so it keeps big players like ESPN and TNT away from his service. However, that doesn’t mean there isn’t a lot to see on KlowdTV. Below is a breakdown of the channels available and the monthly cost of each genre.

  • Thanks Dennis for the info. It was your blog that gave me a clear cut way to cut the chord. I've been with cable now for almost 3 months now. I will keep an eye on this service but for now SlingTV still offers more of the things I like to watch on my Roku. Keep up the great work and thank you for taking your time to pass along your knowledge.

    • I'm so happy I could help. When writing on the blog, it's sometimes tough to know if what I write actually helps the reader. Feadback like yours really makes it all worth doing. Thank you so much Melinda.

  • Hi Dennis. We finally cut the cable cord last December...and we don't miss it at all. Our outdoor antenna picks up our local CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX, PBS and other local channels...and very well. The cost of the antenna was less than one month of our cable service. We use it on 2 TVs. Then we have our Rokus and Sling TV plus oodles of streaming channels. Hulu is awesome and we are considering keeping it after our 3 month free trial is over. This is all due, in great part, to your recommendations and advice. Thanks to you, we are saving $85 a month. And it felt great to tell our cable service to cut off the TV subscription!!

  • Admiring the hard work you put into your website and in depth information you offer. It's great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn't the same unwanted rehashed material. Fantastic read! I've bookmarked your site and I'm adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  • Dennis:
    I had subscribed to Klowdtv and they billed me on June 3, 2016 and yesterday the service stopped working. I checked their web-site and it said they are shutting down and are closing all accounts! Well OK, but most of their channels didn't load or would constantly reload. When I wrote them they said some of the problems are being worked on, so I stayed with them, mostly for TVG2 horse racing channel! Yesterday they pulled the plug-why? Do you have any info on it? Of course you have no way of knowing what these start -ups will do or if they will make it, just think they should give us all some warning, etc when you have faith in them to start with! Skitter TV has what I need and I will go with them, been in business since 2009.
    Thanks,
    Steve

    • Sorry to hear that Steve. I wasn't aware they were shutting down. I will definitely get the site update with that information.

  • I want to subscribe KloudTV and receive it thru my cable (TV, Phone, & Internet) company A.T. & T. The service I have is their "U-verse TV."

    Am I able to do this or do I have thru another cable service company (i.e. DirectTV) or a streaming service? My favorite cable news channel is: "O.A.N." or One American News Network. Your help is greatly appreciate.

    • You don't need cable, you just need internet access. Any internet access will work. The service streams over the internet.

  • I know this is probably a stupid question but I’m on a restricted gigabyte Internet service. Is there a guess-ta-mation on how many megs or gigs are used per hour? Again I assume this is only when you turn on the service on the Internet and not a full-time download. Thanks for the information.

    • Video is fairly heavy, even in standard definition a 1-gigabyte cap will be reached within a couple hours.

  • I am subscribed to Klowtv and it works fine on my ipad, iPhone and desktop computer but I cannot get it to play on my smart tv. Even when I use the internet connection it tells me it pulls up the site but will not play. What can I do?

    • I would contact there support. I haven't used KlowdTV in quite some time.

  • What a strange if not suspicious idea to bundle One American News Network with the Russian Propaganda RT channel!

    As a Historian by education and a former Soviet citizen I can assure you that it is a Communist Propaganda Channel controlled by Putin's FSB (former KGB).
