With VH1’s hit show Love and Hip Hop: New York starting its 10th season on Monday, December 16th, I wanted to cover how to watch VH1 without needing a cable TV subscription. If you have a streaming device like a Roku, Amazon Fire TV, or Chromecast, all you need is an online streaming service that carries VH1. Before I cover all the options, let me briefly highlight the choice I prefer, Philo.
Pluto TV – You can watch live VH1 online for free on Pluto TV. However, there is no DVR so there is no way to record an episode if you miss it. Pluto TV runs on Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, iOS, and Roku. Check out our review of Pluto TV for more details.
Philo – This is the most affordable streaming option at $20 per month for watching VH1 live along with over 50 other channels. You can even record shows like Love and Hip Hop: New York with the included cloud DVR feature. They offer a 1-week free trial, and they don’t lock you into a contract.
Other options to watch VH1 online include the following:
- Fubo TV – Offers 1-week free trial
- AT&T TV Now – Offers 1-week free trial
- Sling TV – Offers 1-week free trial
Read on for more detail on these cable TV alternatives and information on watching VH1 online.
Stream VH1 Live with Philo
The most affordable way to stream VH1 is through Philo. Philo is a streaming service that offers VH1 and a ton of other top TV networks typically found on cable TV for just $20 per month.
You can watch VH1 and other channels through Philo on up to three devices at the same time. They even include a cloud DVR so you can record your favorite VH1 shows.
Philo is currently supported on Mac and PC on a web browser, Apple iPhone and iPad (running iOS 9 or newer), Android phones and tablets (running 5.0 or later), Fire TV, Apple TV, and Roku. You can also stream Philo to your TV with Chromecast.
The service offers a 1-week free trial to test the service. You can sign up for the free trial to Philo HERE.
Philo will let you watch 2-days completely free, by only supplying your mobile number. After 2-days of viewing, you need to provide a credit card to watch the remaining 5-days of the trial. Your subscription starts after the 7th day of the trial. However, if you cancel before that time, you won’t be billed. For more details on the streaming service, please check out our review of Philo.
Watch VH1 Live with Sling TV
At $30 per month, Sling TV is your next best option for watching VH1 without having a cable TV subscription. Sling TV has two channel-plans starting at $30 per month. However, VH1 can be added through their “Lifestyle Plus” add-on package for $5 per month. Sling TV also offers a 1-week free trial, so you can try the service.
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.

Watch VH1 on FuboTV
FuboTV is a streaming service that provides access to quite a few pay-TV channels. You can watch the channels like VH1 live as they would air on cable TV and you can record programs on their cloud DVR. They stream VH1 online as well as over 80 other channels as part of their base package.
All this is included with the base package. You can test out the service with this 1-week free trial. After the trial, it’s $54.99 per month. There is no commitment, so you can cancel at any time. The service supports Roku, Chromecast, Fire TV, Apple TV, and more. Check out our full review of FuboTV for more information.
VH1 on AT&T TV Now
VH1 is one of the channels available on AT&T’s streaming service AT&T TV Now. However, at $65 per month, it’s a bit more expensive than the other options. Check out our review of AT&T TV Now for more details.
You can use the VH1 App to watch VH1 live online or recent episodes of your favorite VH1 shows. You can watch VH1 on the go with your Android or iOS device. You can also watch on your TV using Roku, Chromecast, Fire TV, Android TV, or Apple TV.
You will need your TV provider login credentials. Philo, Fubo TV and AT&T Now credentials will work with the VH1 App, so you don’t need to worry about not having cable TV.
