Cord Cutting Guides, News, and Reviews
Disney XD is a lot of fun, but cable is a lot of money. That's why we're here to talk about how to watch Disney XD without cable. We have good news: It's possible to watch Disney XD online, no cable (or satellite) required. Below, we'll cover the affordable, legal, and user-friendly options that you have for streaming Disney XD live whenever you'd like (on whatever device you'd like to use). Cutting the cord is easier than ever, so don't let the cable companies fool you. Disney XD is no reason to keep cable, because you don't need it to watch the service in the first place! Let's learn more.
Here are a few of our favorite ways to stream Disney XD:
Disney XD offers more of the Disney Channel content that kids love. Unfortunately, like Disney Channel itself, Disney XD is what we call a “network” TV channel. That's distinct from “broadcast” channels, which we can watch for free using an over-the-air antenna. Network TV channels are available only through pay TV’s “multichannel” services (which offer multiple live channels); this category includes cable and satellite services.
Fortunately, there are live TV streaming services (also called “skinny bundles”), which let you stream live TV over the internet. Many of these skinny bundles offer great solutions that address how to watch Disney XD without cable. Here are the ones you need to know about.
Stream Disney XD for free with DIRECTV Stream
DIRECTV Stream, the streaming service from AT&T, offers multiple channel bundles at different price points. You'll have no trouble finding Disney XD — as well as regular Disney Channel — in the DIRECTV Stream channel lineup.
Stream Disney XD for free with Hulu
Hulu + Live TV is a strong skinny-bundle option. Hulu + Live TV keeps things simple: no tiers here, and add-ons are pretty limited. The service’s main bundle includes a Disney XD livestream. Check out Hulu + Live TV’s free trial if you want to watch a complimentary week of Disney XD online.
Stream Disney XD for free with fuboTV
Disney XD is also available on fuboTV, a live TV streaming service and skinny bundle. fuboTV is a strong option for cable-free TV: It includes lots of children's programming, sports content, news, and more. Best of all, you can check out the service for free by taking advantage of fuboTV's trial offer.
YouTube TV is Google's take on the skinny bundle, and it's very impressive. While this service builds on the YouTube brand and offers access to original content from YouTube, it's different from YouTube Premium: YouTube Premium takes ads off of YouTube and doesn't offer live TV, while this YouTube TV offers live network television (and all of the ads that come with it, we're afraid). Among the live TV channels that your YouTube TV subscription will net you is, of course, Disney XD. That makes YouTube TV a great answer to the dilemma of how to watch Disney XD without cable.
Disney XD looks better on your big screen, so let's talk about how to watch it on Roku, Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, and other platforms that will let you stream on your favorite TV screen.
Hulu + Live TV, fuboTV, Sling TV, and YouTube TV also work on Xbox One video game consoles. Hulu + Live TV is an option for PlayStation 4 owners, too.
With so many skinny bundles carrying Disney XD, and so many devices available to stream the channel on, you should have no trouble watching your favorite shows on the network without having to pay the cable company.
Oh, and did we mention that it’s also very easy to watch the Disney Channel without cable? Well, it is — and it’s easy to stream Nickelodeon and other great kids’ networks, too. Check out our guides for more information!
