Weather throughout the U.S. has been pretty severe in 2018. People who have dropped cable have been asking how to watch The Weather Channel. However, in writing this article, I discovered that The Weather Channel isn’t just for knowing if you need a rain-coat (or a helmet) to go outside anymore.
These days, there is a whole host of entertaining programs airing on “The Weather Channel.” I’ll get to those in a bit. First I wanted to go over how to watch The Weather Channel Online without needing a cable TV subscription.
Watch The Weather Channel Without Cable
The most affordable way to watch the Weather Channel online is through FuboTV. While FuboTV is known as a sports streaming service, it’s also one of the few streaming services that carry the Weather Channel.
The Weather Channel is available as part of a package that offers over 60 other networks like HGTV, A&E, History Channel, Hallmark Channel, National Geographic, and more.
The service costs $34.99 per month, but you can try it before you buy it with this 1-week free trial. The service offers the following features.
- Stream on Android smartphones, Android tablets, iPhone, iPad, Apple TV (4th Generation only), Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Chromecast, and most modern browsers
- A Cloud-Based DVR
- Over 60 Channels included Regional Sports Networks, and Live local NBC, FOX, and soon CBS
The only other streaming service I’m aware of that offers The Weather Channel is DirecTV Now. However, it’s part of their “Live a Little” which costs $50 per month. If FuboTV doesn’t work out, you may want to give their service a try.
