How to Watch Disney Channel Online Without Cable

Since it isn’t available for free over the air, your options for watching Disney Channel without cable are pretty straightforward: You’ll need a live TV streaming service (aka a “skinny bundle”).

A skinny bundle is a service that offers a slimmed-down selection of channels for a far lower price than the cable giants charge. Some live TV streaming services are skinnier than others, but they all try to beat cable at its own game by offering live network TV channels over the internet. These services are often cheaper than cable, and they’re always more flexible: With a live TV streaming service, you can stream in all sorts of locations and on all sorts of devices.

Not every skinny bundle includes Disney Channel, but plenty do. Let’s meet the best of them.

Stream Disney Channel for free with DIRECTV Stream

Try It

There are a lot of great channels available through DIRECTV Stream, including Disney Channel. To learn more, read our DIRECTV Stream review.

Stream Disney Channel for free with Hulu

Free Trial

Hulu + Live TV is, appropriately enough, the live TV service from Hulu. This skinny bundle keeps things simple by offering just one base package and a few premium-channel add-ons, so you don’t need to worry about a bunch of tiers or customizations. You can bundle it with the on-demand version of Hulu, though. Hulu + Live TV’s selection includes Disney Channel, of course, as well as both Disney Junior and Disney XD. Not a bad haul! For more information, read our review of Hulu + Live TV.

Stream Disney Channel for free with fuboTV

Free Trial

fuboTV was already a solid option for streaming fans when it began offering Disney-owned networks in August 2020. It’s now a stronger skinny bundle option than ever. There’s a lot to like about this service, as we noted in our fuboTV review.

Stream Disney Channel with Sling TV

Try It

Sling TV is a little different from most skinny bundles in how it divides its offerings. Instead of tiers, Sling TV offers a choice of base packages, and then lets you build custom packages through a la carte add-ons. It’s easy to build a bundle that includes a Disney Channel livestream. Sling TV also offers Disney Junior and Disney XD. You can read our full review of Sling TV to learn more.

YouTube TV

YouTube TV is a great place to get your fill of the Disney Channel. This livestreaming service owned by Google has an extensive channel list. You can find out more in our YouTube TV review.

Can I Watch Disney Channel on Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, or Chromecast?

No matter which skinny bundle you choose, you’ll be able to get an app for most major streaming platforms. You can watch Disney Channel on everything from the massive TV in your den to a smartphone. Check out the chart below to get the details.

More to Watch for Disney Channel Fans

If you’re looking for more Disney content, then the obvious answer is Disney Plus. The streaming service launched in late 2019, and it quickly became one of the titans of the streaming industry. How big is Disney Plus? It took just 16 months to hit 100 million subscribers.

Disney Plus draws in subscribers by having a ton of content. Star Wars and Marvel are two of the biggest draws for adults and teens. Younger audiences can pick from animated Disney classics and original Disney Plus shows such as “The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers” and “Monsters at Work.” You can learn more about why Disney has taken the streaming world by storm in our Disney Plus review.
