With the 2020 political season in full swing, there has been a lot of interest in watching cable news, with people frequently asking about watching CNN. Well, you no longer need a cable TV subscription to watch CNN. You can now subscribe to any of the services below and stream CNN without having cable TV. You can even watch it on your TV!
Best Ways to Watch CNN
CNN is Streaming on Sling TV
An affordable way to stream live CNN is with Sling TV. Subscribers will need to sign up for Sling TV’s Blue or Orange Package for $30 per month. You can try a 7-day free trial and see if this solution will work for you. Sling is also running the following promotions:
- Sign up for 2 months of Sling and Receive a Free Amazon Fire Stick
- Get your first month of Sling for only $20
Sling TV is supported on Windows and Mac PCs and laptops, Android and iOS devices, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, Nexus player, Xbox One, 4th Generation Apple TV, Chromecast, and more.
The service also includes a cloud DVR along with other great features. For details on Slings service offerings and the difference between them, check out my review of Sling TV.
Stream CNN on Hulu Live TV
Live streaming of CNN is available through Hulu Live TV. As with Sling, you can get a 1-week free trial to watch CNN live free of charge. Previously Hulu was known for their vast on-demand streaming library. Hulu Live TV is one of the best live TV streaming services available. It includes the following features:
- The basic package comes with 50 hours of cloud DVR storage. (Upgrades available)
- Watch on 2 screens at once. (Upgrades available)
- Comes with 6 customizable profiles
- Includes entire Hulu streaming library
After your free trial is up, Hulu Live TV will cost you $54.99 per month. I find it the best value of the services currently out there because it will allow you to stream your local broadcast networks in addition to CNN and a whole host of other channels.
