Cord Cutting Guides, News, and Reviews
Bloomberg Television has the news and finance information you need to succeed in a fast-moving world. But there's one financial decision that you may be making in connection with Bloomberg Television that, frankly, would not be easy to defend on-air. It's your cable or satellite bill: why are you paying it? See, you can watch Bloomberg Television without cable. Like many other network television channels, Bloomberg Television is available online — not just in the form of short on-demand videos, but in a real Bloomberg Television livestream, with all the same stuff you'd get through cable or satellite. The only real difference is that you'll pay a lot less. Sound good? Then read on, and we'll show you how to watch Bloomberg Television without cable.
Here are a few of our favorite ways to stream Bloomberg TV:
If you watch Bloomberg Television regularly, then you probably already know that cable and satellite – the services we call “legacy pay-TV” services — are in trouble. That's because streaming services, led by on-demand streaming pioneers like Netflix, have made it easy for us to stay entertained without cable. For that, we can thank something called “skinny bundles.”
Now there are tons of these services, which are most often simply called “live TV streaming services.” You can even opt for some services that are a whole lot less “skinny” than you might expect. But the perks remain: lower prices, the ability to watch on any device, and a highly competitive market that says no to long-term contracts and yes to free trial periods.
And some of these services will offer you a Bloomberg Television livestream, making them the perfect way to watch Bloomberg Television without cable. Let's meet the candidates, shall we?
Stream Bloomberg Television with Hulu
Hulu + Live TV is slightly awkward to type out, but it’s not at all awkward to use. This live TV streaming service gives you plenty of ways to watch Bloomberg Television without cable, and you can even get a free trial before you spend any money on the service. Check out our Hulu + Live TV review to get a more thorough idea of what you’re signing up for when you select this service.
Stream Bloomberg Television with Sling TV
Sling TV offers subscribers a clever way to be efficient with their spending. Rather than offer a tiered selection of bundles in increasing sizes, Sling TV gives subscribers a choice of two base packages and then allows them to tack on “extras,” which are miniature bundles of channels that can expand your bundles' coverage in any direction you want. Like sports? Pay for “Sports Extra” – you'll get the coverage you want without having to pay for extra drama channels, too.
Okay, so what does this mean for Bloomberg Television fans? It means that it's very easy and very affordable to build a Sling TV bundle that will give you a way to watch Bloomberg Television without cable.
AT&T TV is a live TV streaming service backed by (you guessed it) telecom giant AT&T. Previously known as DIRECTV NOW and AT&T TV NOW, this service is a strong live TV streaming option. Its bundles aren't all that “skinny,” but the beefy channel selections include lots of great networks — like Bloomberg Television, for example. Find the right bundle, and you'll be watching Bloomberg Television sans cable.
There’s more than one way to play the stock market, and there’s also more than one way to play Bloomberg Television. A big-screen TV is the obvious option, but not the only one. That's because the services listed above boast support for a wide range of devices, including more mobile options like a smartphone. Take a look at the chart below to find out which devices work with your preferred service.
Bloomberg is a strong source for finding out everything that’s happening in the world of finance and business, but it’s not your only option for that sort of content. If you want to get another perspective into that high-powered, hard-charging financial world, consider tuning in to CNBC. While Bloomberg Television got its start in 1994, CNBC has been around since the late ‘80s. It’s a slightly more established voice, in other words. If that’s your thing, our guide to watching CNBC without cable should be your next stop.
But if you just want a channel with a general news focus, we can help there too. Channels like Bloomberg Television and CNBC will tell you what’s happening on Wall Street, but cable news channels will give you more wide-ranging news in easily digestible segments. CNN got the 24-hour news channel craze started when it launched in 1980, and you can reference our guide to watching CNN without cable to find out how to access a livestream.
Bloomberg TV on Roku is low-def and pretty worthless. You miss the market index statistics on the bottom of the screen and side bar with graphs and charts that you see on Bloomberg HD on DirecTV. What internet streaming services offer Bloomberg HD?
Bloomberg on Pluto is different than the usual you see thru cable. But not to worry, they have a free app that streams the “regular” version. So cut the cord!
