Oh, but before we move on, we should mention that we're totally aware that Adult Swim is the same channel as Cartoon Network. So, as you might assume, you can expect this How to Watch Adult Swim Without Cable post to be, well, pretty much exactly the same as our How to Watch Cartoon Network Without Cable post. You can read either one – we only made them separate so that you could have the easiest time possible finding the answers you're looking for.

Alright, let's move on: here's how to get your Adult Swim live stream.

How to Watch Adult Swim Online Without Cable

Adult Swim makes its home on pay TV services. For a long time, that meant cable and satellite – those overpriced options that we now call “legacy” pay TV solutions. They're looking pretty old and inefficient these days thanks to the arrival of a relatively new option that is a whole lot more at home in our current decade: the skinny bundle.

The skinny bundle, or live TV streaming service (either term works – as we'll see in a moment, some of these “skinny bundles” aren't so skinny anymore) is a pay TV service, just like cable. It offers live network television channels, just like cable. And it will give you a live feed of Adult Swim, just like cable. But unlike cable, live TV streaming services are just that: streaming services. They come in over the internet and are at home on a huge variety of devices. They tend to offer slimmed-down cable bundles that are all killer, no filler (that's where the “skinny” part of the skinny bundle name comes from). And all of this contributes to what is arguably the most important thing about live TV streaming services: they're usually quite a bit cheaper than cable.

And a lot of these services will give you access to an Adult Swim live stream, making them the perfect answer to the question of how to watch Adult Swim without cable. Here are the services we trust that will have you laughing at Adult Swim – and all the way to the bank. Goodbye, cable.

Stream Adult Swim for free with Hulu

Free Trial

Hulu + Live TV is the live TV streaming service from Hulu, which you probably could guess from the name. Hulu has long been a player in the streaming video on demand (“SVOD” for short, to industry observers) market, where it competes with the likes of Netflix. Somewhat more recently, it waded into the skinny bundle wars and began offering a selection of live TV channels. You can subscribe to Hulu + Live TV on its own or add it to your on-demand account. Read our review of Hulu + live TV here, or sign up for the service's free trial below.

Cartoon Network and Adult Swim are available through fuboTV. fuboTV offers a discount on your first paid month and a free trial that lasts seven days. Check out those offers by clicking on the link below.

Stream Adult Swim with Sling TV

Try It

Sling TV is all about customization. The Dish-owned service offers two base packages and a host of smaller add-on packages. Customers can sign up for a base bundle and can then tack on any, all, or none of the available add-on packages, which cost less than the base packages and include small servings of channels grouped by type. That gives subscribers a ton of options, but there's nothing complicated about getting an Adult Swim live stream: It's easy to find Cartoon Network among the bundle options.

AT&T TV Now

Even the old-school telecoms recognize that the future belongs to live TV streaming services. AT&T TV Now is one of several skinny bundles with backing from companies that also have a hand in legacy pay TV services. Don't be thrown off by AT&T's role or the former brand name of this service, DirecTV Now: AT&T TV Now has nothing to do with satellite TV and has everything to do with saving you money on an Adult Swim live stream. You'll find Adult Swim (which is part of Cartoon Network) among the channels available through AT&T TV Now. You can read our review of AT&T TV Now here or can click the link below to check out the free trial for yourself.

YouTube TV

YouTube TV is a skinny bundle that comes to us from tech super-company Google. Not to be confused with regular old YouTube (where user-generated videos make up most of the content), this is a real skinny bundle with live TV channels — including, of course, Cartoon Network and Adult Swim. Sign up for the service's free trial offer by clicking on the link below this paragraph.
