How to Watch The Weather Channel Without Paying For Cable TV

One of the channels we get many requests for is The Weather Channel. The weather-focused network is still popular and one of the harder channels to get if you do not have a subscription to a traditional pay-TV service such as cable TV.

We have good news! Now cord cutters do have options to watch The Weather Channel after they ditch their high cable TV bill.


The last option is Fubo TV and its new Fubo Premier plan. There you will find The Weather Channel available on its $35-a-month package.

Sling TV

Update: Sadly at this time Sling TV is not offering Local Now.

Sling TV does not have the Weather Channel but it does offer the Local Now channel. This channel is built similar to the Local on the 8s format with local news, national news, local weather, and breaking news. During some weather emergencies, Local Now will air The Weather Channel feed.

Sling TV offers a free trial of its service.


DIRECTV NOW has The Weather Channel in the following packages: Just Right, Go Big, and Gotta Have It. With these subscriptions you can get full access to The Weather Channel with a live feed.

Once again cord cutting is becoming easier and easier. Just a few months ago there weren’t any options outside of cable to watch The Weather Channel.
