When it comes to watching network channels like NBC without cable, I typically recommend using a digital antenna. However, not everyone can use an antenna. Furthermore, some folks would rather not want to deal with the hassle of getting an antenna up and running. Perhaps, you have an antenna but can’t get NBC.
No worries. You can easily watch live NBC online through various streaming services in quite a few markets. I’ve outlined all the services that stream NBC online below. I’ve also highlighted where NBC is available On-Demand in case you do not have a live NBC streaming option in your local market.
