How to Watch Bravo Online Without Cable

You can watch on-demand content from Bravo on the network’s website (although the selection is quite limited) or on-demand on Hulu. Still, for a live stream of Bravo, you’ll have to turn to a different type of service entirely: a live TV streaming service.

For the past few years, live TV streaming services have quickly proliferated, although channel offerings differ between services. Since they stream over the web just like Netflix does, the regional monopolies that dominate traditional cable TV are out of the picture. That makes the competition tougher and prices better. And live TV streaming services virtually never force cord-cutters into long-term contracts. Cord-cutters looking for Bravo can find the network on the following services:

    Being a cord cutter or not it still comes down to money and time and ease of use… simple as that!

    1. says:

      You’re definitely right.

  2. Lisa Straza says:

    I know nothing about this. Is there a company that can set me up so I can get away from cable?

    Was watching the Bravo app on a Roku just fine all morning. Now it tells me I need an activation code but when I do that it says my subscription doesn’t have it. Why did it start that?

    1. says:

      Hmm, that’s odd. You might want to contact Bravo’s customer support to see if they can help.

    2. Kelly says:

      Because you don’t have cable. Therefore you now have to have a cable subscription which I don’t. So they become locked on Hulu

  4. Whitney says:

    Right now we have a bundled package of internet, TV, and phone with Charter Spectrum and are planning on going down to just internet. We recently bought a Roku stick and the Bravo Now app is working perfectly, but will it not work once we’ve canceled the TV and phone?

    1. says:

      That’s right. However, if you subscribe to a live TV streaming service, such as DIRECTV NOW, you can keep using Bravo Now with your DIRECTV NOW credentials.

  5. Jillian says:

    Thank you so much for this article! Do these live TV options mean that I would only be able to watch my favorite Bravo shows when they air? Or would I be able to stream whenever I like once I got a live TV subscription?

    1. Stephen Lovely says:

      Thanks for reading, Jillian! These are live services, but you can use DVR and live TV rewind features to watch older episodes on many of these (in some cases, you’ll have to grab an add-on to get DVR features). If you’d rather watch Bravo shows on demand, your best bet is probably Hulu’s on demand service, which has a bunch of Bravo stuff in its catalog. And if you go with Hulu with Live TV, that includes Hulu’s on-demand stuff, so you’d get both. Hope that helps!

      My bravo app on my smart tv does not load it lost please help I don’t have cable but I have internet

  6. Beth says:

    I never watch live TV so do any of the above services allow me to watch current Bravo shows on demand or record on a dvr to watch at my convenience? (I know I can find last season’s Bravo shows on Hulu.)

    1. Stephen Lovely says:

      Yes, many of these services have DVR features!

  7. Olivia says:

    Spectrum offers “spectrum choice” for around $50 that gives you 10 channels of your choice plus local channels (prime time, news, pbs etc). You can watch it online or through your smart TV. Cheaper than a full cable package and you can get (almost) everything you want

It even lets you start some shows from the beginning if you tune in late since it is through the internet. It’s cheaper than a full cable package and you can get (almost) everything you want

      I think I heard that somewhere before
